Stick 'em up !!!

I just watched 4 heavily armed Policemen run into the Credit Suisse bank at Opernhaus Zürich.

You don't see this sort of thing everyday, but people seemed casual as usual.

If anyone finds a link to know what is going on, please add it to this thread.

Maybe the cash machine wasn't working and they needed money for doughnuts.

They might want to take a little extra to cover their parking fines.
Armed Police is one thing, but those parking inspectors are sneaky bastards.


Did anyone else see this this morning?

I still can't find a news link.

Re: Stick 'em up !!!

I would have expected something to show up in a news feed by now if it was something serious.

I guess it was about doughnuts.

Best guess - someone activated the panic alarm by accident ?

Re: Stick 'em up !!!

Apparently a US citizen tried to open a bank account and didn't want the IRS informed.

Re: Stick 'em up !!!

I can't believe it.

I tried to google the topic again, only to find my own stupid thread is the top pick.

Ha Ha, I feel sorry for anyone else who saw the mayhem this morning and wanted to know more... only to find this thread full of bollocks.

That's a common occurrence. In fact, Google picks up threads and postings here practically the minute they are posted.
It's absolutely amazing and frightening at the same time.

.... and annoying.

Some ausländer crosses the street when the "Red Man" was flashing, and it's front page news and an SVP campaign topic.

4 heavily armed Police fly through the city along the tram lines, and race into a bank.... business as usual.



I still would like to know what that was all about. So if there is a report at all, please post it here.
