That’s right. Ben got attempted robbed today.

22Mar10

First ride in the front of a police car :D!

But, I rode in a police car because someone tried to rob me.

Short version, I showed him a clean pair of heels and got back alright, after someone tried to rob me down the road from my house in Perry Barr (Bayswater Road).

But, now, I’ve had my first experience with the Police Force, and, you know what, I’m still pretty impressed.

Sure, it takes a long time. Sure, it’s difficult to get results.

But they dealt with it quickly, took it seriously(ish) and used their resources effectively.

It’s a shame they don’t take robbery as seriously as they should; if you pretend you have a weapon, then to the victim, you may as well have a weapon. ‘Nough said.

But, s’all good. Bit shaken, but s’all good.
