Specifically, regarding those small jewellers who have secure entrances – you know, with an intercom and entry button under the counter. How does THAT work?
I mean, if the bell rings and the shop assistant looks over at the door and sees three guys with striped jerseys, stocking-masks and sawn-off Purdeys standing there – they probably won’t buzz them in.
But supposing it’s a normal-looking guy in a suit? Buzz him in – and then he pulls out a Glock.
Or what if it’s a well-to-do-looking woman – and as soon as you buzz the door, three evil-looking blokes join her?
On the other hand, what if a black guy with tats and a reversed baseball cap is standing there? No? But he may just be a successful rapper who is looking for a gift for his bitch – I mean girlfriend.
How are you supposed to KNOW whether a customer is kosher?
Let’s face it – having cased a joint, any potential stick-up artist is going to make SURE they look kosher.
So what IS the point of the entry-phone? Anyone?
