Re: Police in Zürich today with machine guns

There was a robbery at Central and they are looking for the suspects.

Break out the machine guns!



Actually, I suppose one of the good things about Switzerland is the dramatic response to something like this. In UK it might have made the inside page of a local paper. Maybe local front page if they'd been armed and fired shots.

On a not so funny side note... I pretty much match the description of the guy (a tad bit taller, but that's about it)... and need to go to the city soon. I expect to get controlled every 50 meter as if the guy would stick around the place...

SWAT teams around Bahnhofstrasse and Bürkliplatz usually mean something / someone very valuable being transported in the underground cargo tunnels. Doubt they'd get tooled up for a smash and grabber but you never know, saves them from investigating the financial crimes occuring around Paradeplatz...

Not my style anyway... let's hope the Stadtpolizei know the difference between a Rolex and a Glashütte...

Well, it makes sense -- instead of stealing it and risking not to find a buyer, first sell it, and only then go and get it

Re: Police in Zürich today with machine guns

That they bring out the whole Zürich police force with machine guns is laughable.Guess they are bored.

Didn't think you would get past the tank, the armoured car, the 2 snipers and the 10 cops fully tooled up.
