SM MEGAMALL Daring Robbery
 
Been trying to keep tabs on this when it first came out.

Were any BOGs at SM Mega Mall when the Jewelry heist perpetrated by the "Martilyo Gang" was ongoing?

Seriously, good thing no one was hurt.

Just thinking out loud...I wonder what would / could have happened if legally armed and responsible armed citizens were there? Just supposing that the Mall management would not file any charges and / or there were no legal implications, would you have gone in and "helped" out??

Just seems to me that the ongoing Gun Ban is having its "intended" effect....:rofl:

Si Ted Failon interviewed MMDA chair Kukurap kurap kung meron daw protocols ang MMDA for such events.
I mean pati ba mall security hawak na ng MMDA? Or wala lang makausap na matino si Failon? Ayaw na ba nya kausap ang PNP?

According to the linked news article, "the suspects, who were seen wearing white shirts and jeans, used a pipe wrench to break the glass jewelry case. The pipe wrench was allegedly bought at a hardware store inside the mall."

It seems that the unrestricted access to pipe wrenches promotes a culture of violence in our society. Why, these pipe wrenches are blatantly displayed in public, and there aren't sufficient background checks before a civilian can purchase a pipe wrench. We should push for a law restricting the carrying of pipe wrenches in public only to plumbers in uniform officially discharging their duties. :supergrin:

My wife and I were there, but left several hours before
it happened. I was there for an adjustable wrench and
some c-clamps from Ace Hardware. :embarassed:

Helped out?
Assuming I had no loved ones to secure?

It seems no one was in immediate mortal danger, and if
I'd drawn steel to "help out", the odds of BG return-fire
hitting an innocent would have increased exponentially.

If someone was about to get killed, (shopkeep, shopper,
mall guard or LEO), the motivation to "help out" would
increase, but the odds of my being gunned-down by an
arriving LEO or mall guard (too many of them can't shoot
worth a wet turd, and their situational-assesment is
often worse) would also expand. If I were shot by LEO's
or guards, I'd probably be "allowed to expire" and thence
be branded "as one of the robbers" (thence my family
smeared, harassed, or even kidnapped/executed by dirty
elements of SAF/PNP, in a cover-up to protect their own).
Puede nang plot for a Rudy Fernandez movie?

I guess that's a "No, I'm not sure I'd help out".

YMMV.

Expect a call from Ted or the MMDA :supergrin:

As for the question,
It's the stores job to secure their wares.
It's the thief's job to steal the wares.
It's my job to protect myself and loved ones.

In short, hindi ako makikialam kasi wala sa job description ko BUT if the bad guys were actively shooting civilians I will engage them. Bahala na si Bruce Wayne.
