So two days back I posted about the FJ that got stolen from my neighbors place in Seheili. Well today a friend of mine was leaving her office in Adonis at 3:30 in the afternoon when some guy tried to steal her purse! He grabbed her purse from the handle but she was able to grab the shoulder strap and then proceeded to scream and hit him with some books she was carrying before he ran off. This happened in broad daylight at 3:30 in the afternoon in a densely populated and safe area! What the hell is going on in Lebanon?
The FJ owner btw ended up paying the thieves $9,000 to get his car back.
Since all crimes are taking place in your surroundings … maybe you should leave the country for a short while to see if things calm down 😉
I’m already out of the country! Lol
You bring evil with you 😛
Seriously? Why didn’t the FJ owner call the cops? Am I missing something here?
lol are you Lebanese or do you live in Lebanon at least? What cops?
Or maybe its time for amen zati again since all the ‘protected’ (or should I say corrupted) areas are safe. Safe to the point, the army can’t interfer 🙂
I am a Soc-Crim major student I have to tell you that you are one over reacting blogger. FYI what is happening in Lebanon is quiet normal, because the current social environment in Lebanon is unstable and that has a direct effect with increase in crime. I mean it is common sense when you think about it. You want everything to be peachy and stable with the current situation there. The only reason that is not making thing worse when it comes to crime in urban cities is that people are not isolated from each other. Everyone knows each other
No it’s NOT normal. Jeez getting a car stolen or getting mugged in broad daylight is normal for you?
Crime= part of social norm in any society. The reason for that individual picking day to commit the “crime” your talking about is because the severity of the crime is not severe. Petty theft is more likely to occur during daytime versus serious crime like homicide during night time.
Hopefully now u are now less confused.
This is what normally happens when the government is missing and no one is held accountable for their actions-Killing a person has become an easy task in this country. To all the girls: Keep a Taser in your bags 🙂
adonis was never a safe area… kel 3omra hekk..
