All over Europe, gangs on motorcycles are attacking jewelry stores and raiding them. Yesterday in England, a pair of crooks were stopped by passerbys and one of them was smothered to death by enraged citizens.
This gentle giant was also 6+feet tall: Armed robber died after being sat on by passersby – Telegraph
The 33-year-old, who was wearing motorcycle gear and a helmet, had smashed the window of a jewellery shop repeatedly with a sledgehammer, before wrestling with the store’s manager and owner.
Other onlookers then helped to apprehend the robbery suspect as he tried to flee from the scene – sitting on top of him in “a big heap.”
His buddy threw smoke bombs. The manager was hit by a sledge hammer. Unlike the store manager in America who was simply partially chocked and shoved around, this was even more violent. But unlike in the US, the Brits didn’t worry about a gun being used on them. So far, the Townsend family isn’t telling any lies about their dead son. We can only hope they don’t indulge in this in the future.
Oh, and the motorcycle Townsend used in his crime spree was stolen by him, too. Here are more very similar stories:
This crime spree is thanks to no one shooting the criminals.
