Holy shit. One of those omfg moments where you realize you've had the wrong meaning of a phrase forever in your mind.. I used to think (until your comment lol) that thick as thieves meant there were a lot of them, like a throng of thieves or a group of them. 😂😂😂 thick meaning thick skulls makes 1000% more sense 😂 sometimes you gotta laugh at yourself, and for me.. that's now

I'm not sure if it's survivor bias (or inverse of it), but it seems most criminals have 0 intelligence. If they were intelligent they would do something smarter than crime. But if they're smart enough we wouldn't know about them. Or they'd just be politicians.

u/cristobaldelicia Oct 06 '22

well, there's also junkies who are stealing to get drug money. I can imagine some get high or drunk before committing a crime. Impaired judgement, not necessarily stupidity. There's also the difference between criminals who get caught, and those that don't. I'm sure the ones caught are a lot less intelligent.

u/JefferyTheQuaxly Oct 06 '22

well police in europe are usually better trained. germany trained cops for like 2 years, some countries require 4 year degrees even i think ive heard. in america the average is 21 weeks, with some closer to 12/14 weeks, so 3-6 months of training usually. and in my state at least cops are only required to go to the range 2 times a year i think, but they can literally shoot a single bullet and leave and have it count as them going to the range. the average joe who goes to target shooting is probably better trained in shooting than the average cop. and most of their training teaches them to shoot as soon as they feel their life threatened. poor fire arms training plus being taught to put down a threat as soon as possible equals a higher chance of death.

You’d literally have to wait until you see the dudes walking up to the store, call the police real quick, and say that there’s been a shooting and someone died in order to get them to come out with any luck, and all because they might then get the impression that they’ll have a chance to legally shoot someone.

I manage to slip away and the guys run off after. The cops show up FOUR HOURS LATER, mind you we called during an active car jacking. We had left at that point after an hour of waiting for the cops to show up. They call me when they arrive 4 hours later. They were like “where did you go???” “was this a real call?”

A remakably similar thing happened to me. I had a drum machine and 4-track nicked from my house. I went to the nearest music shop a few days later which sold those kinds of things to find out how much I should claim on my insurance (this was before the internet). I started to describe the items to the shopkeeper, but he finished my sentence for me.

Apparently, because the thieves had brought them in without manuals or power supplies, he knew they were stolen and told them he didn't have enough cash in the till to pay them, and they should come back later. He directed me upstairs to where my gear and two detectives were waiting. They said I could wait with them, so I did, and before long the thieves came back and the cops went downstairs to nick them. I got my gear back after a trip to the police station.

That's worse than Idiocracy, in the scene where Rita tells her client to come back later but pay for the waiting time.

Man, at first I thought the owner was an idiot telling them to come back later. Turns out I was the idiot all along.

u/eagleblue44 Oct 06 '22

Was he though? Even if they didn't come back, he avoided getting robbed that day.

You know bro is Arab! We are talkers😂 we be like “habibi listen to me, I get it wallahi, times are hard, you know I don’t even like this job, I was gonna quit this week anyway, but listen my friend, come back at 6:30, right now yk how much I have? It’s worthless rn, come back at 6:30 I usually have about $2k by then. I’ll let you guys go and I will just file with insurance and it’s not a big deal. But you have to promise this is the only time okay?”

Is it bad that my first reaction was to laugh as my mind thought, “No way in hell would the police wait with the owner in the US”? I picture a 911 operator saying, “Call back when they are there”.
