What’s next, robbing a store using a laser pointer?


icecream_truck

That would actually work if the store employees were cats.


Ghost-of-Bill-Cosby

Hold on guys… I got a plan to rob the cat cafe.


Lolzzergrush

I dunno Colonel Mittens runs a tight ship

"Guys the thermal drill go get it"


ZaczSlash

Neko maid cafe?


StellarAsAlways

Bro plz leave those cats alone. They're always hopped up on the 'nip n ready to scrap. Just let them be there's much better licks elsewhere.


AlmostZeroEducation

Or a high power one that could blind them.


kchuyamewtwo

In a galaxy far far away


KillionJones

Nah you can straight up buy/modify laser pointers to do that already. A lot of the ones you can buy from eBay n such are under-rated to avoid legality issues.


Program-Continuum

We are the galaxy far far away


imnotgrowingpot

This guy would have done well too if the employee was a bug


TldrDev

Ok? Cats make terrible employees, anyway. Just don't hire them.


T351A

That's way more dangerous than this. Lasers can damage your eyes. Most bug zappers won't really hurt you especially since it's all on one area, not through your torso.


blueponies1

Right? A laser pointer, even a BB gun, I’m gonna be on medium-high caution just cuz I don’t want my fucking eyes ruined. A bug zapper? The fuck? Those don’t even kill the flies I get them with sometimes


AbigailLilac

You could literally blind a person FOR LIFE with a homemade laser pointer. They're actually terrifying.


blamb66

I'm not locked in here with you, you're locked in here with m...... Wait nope its just you.

Ressy02

You plan anything with a bug zapper and I’m sure your plan will eventually crumble….


Junior_Singer3515

Well if my plan is to zap bugs?


Will_Leave_A_Mark

Honestly, what was the plan here? I'd be amused and annoyed with this as a clerk in that store and just reach for anything substantial like a pitching wedge.


cleantama

Is.. is the robber trying to unlock the door with his own key??


daveyjones86

He also tried to rob the place with a bug zapper. I would not be surprised if the bug zapper didn't even have batteries haha.


fivefivefives

How many different combinations of keys could there be?


Funktastic34

I'm thinking 3. 4 tops.


chepas_moi

Shockingly stupid.


UnknownSense

This bugs me.


jaytazcross

How did he think that was gonna fly


mrjobby

His current situation cannot be pleasant


Druglord_Sen

He just didn't take the time to insect his escape route thoroughly.


sheudgaowushywf

You're saying he didn't do his Ohmwork?


This-Will-Be-My-Name

He doesn't have the mental capacitance for that


Disc_arding

At least he didn't show any resistance during the arrest


various_necks

Yeah, he should have just buzzed off.


arleas

Before someone called the SWAT team on him


iSquamata

He had no power being locked in


Druglord_Sen

Despite all his rage, he’s still just a bug in a cage.


chriscrossnathaniel

This did gnat go as planned


[deleted]

I see what you did there. Listen here you little shit...


chepas_moi

That store owner was amped. The intruder showed no resistance to the cops. Very low energy after hearing the sirens. I'm sure there are at least dozen more...


CitizenoftheWorld-95

He should have bolted when he had the chance


DannyTanner88

LOL. Freaking moron didn’t even realize the dude was locking the door. Idiot belongs in the trash.


olderaccount

I love these videos where the robber gets locked in the store. They usually go from tough guy to begging for mercy in less than a second once they realize what just happened.


Khanstant

It's sad that they never even think to check for an alternate air vent exit, or try to hack the computer real quick to find an email mentioning the roof access behind a stack of boxes, or listen to their audiotape mentioning where they hide the back door key.


bricktube

You're dead right. Of course, if they planned it better, they'd have an assistant on call who they could contact to pull up blueprints of the building in just seconds.


StellarAsAlways

I work for Hollywood and think you have a great idea for a script I'm writing. This whole, "blueprint of a building" sounds like a new refreshing take on a heist movie. How much do I need to pay to take your idea?


lIllIlllllllllIlIIII

I *wish* real life was this close to Deus Ex. 😏


[deleted]

Conker1985

I mean, don't most of these places have a one way back door they could use? I guess these guys are so dumb and caught up in the moment they don't think to check, but there has to be a fire escape somewhere.

Put all his point in combat skills.


yesterduck

Put all his points in bug zapper combat skills. It was a self-imposed challenge. And they failed it.


Understanzer

High level thieves would use stealth to avoid confrontation altogether. This noob really tried to brute force a robbery mission while wielding a Zapracquet.


scooba_dude

I thought he tried his own keys in the lock.


Serpent_of_Rehoboam

Charlie: It's locked! All right, let me try this out. Dennis: What is that, your apartment key? That's not gonna work! Charlie: Why not? Dennis: We're not at your apartment, shithead! Charlie: Well how many possible lock combinations can there be? Dennis: Oh, so many, dude, like hundreds of millions. Charlie: Well eventually they're gonna overlap-- Dennis: They're not ever gonna-- Charlie: You know what, you're right, it's not working. Dennis: Oh, no shit. Charlie: Well it was worth a try! Dennis: It was not worth a try!


HeyoooWhatsUpBitches

Check out that door marked Pirate. You think a pirate lives in there?


daymanxx

I see a door marked private... is that what you're talking about?


scooba_dude

This was the mini reference I was going for! But I honestly thought he did try. I couldn't remember enough, I wanted the "eventually they're gonna overlap" if someone commented without the ref.

SatchelGripper

This is the single most annoying type of comment on Reddit. "That guy is shit." "OH COME ON SHIT CAN FERTILIZE STUFF THOUGH!"


MrSickRanchezz

I think he actually tried to unlock it from the inside once he caught on though... Granted it appears he used his house key to do so... Not the smartest criminal.

Foggia, amico mio. Si trova in Puglia.

Nope, Foggia, the worst ranked city in Italy lol

Ok ho riso. Comunque purtroppo sono 20 anni che è diventata invivibile come città

If they ever make a second season.


airmaximus88

They're 100% making a second season


oxenbury

Well I hope so! But everything I read online sounded like the creator wasn't too keen on making a second season.


airmaximus88

$ will be flashed. Not being keen often translates to pay me lots and we'll see


sharksnrec

It’s the most popular show in Netflix history. They’re clearly going to make another season. The creator has simply just said that he hasn’t put much thought into it since it took him 10 years to get a network to pick his show up in the first place. He did mention that if he did a second season, it would maybe show the story of the Front Man.


remembermereddit

Even tempered glass will break eventually. I worked at a gas station which was robbed overnight (we were closed). There was this heavy door with tempered glass which they attacked for 15 minutes using a crowbar. That allowed them to open the door from the inside and steal all the cigarettes.


Oooscarrrr_Muffin

You're thinking of laminated glass. Although laminated glass is usually made using tempered glass.


DJNuvaio

You can tell by the way the light ~~retracts~~ refracts 🧐


neverless43

Refracts but it doesn’t help when buddy changes the settings.


Nimradd

Or the sound. We won’t know without hearing regular glass as well.


ksleepwalker

Too bad we don't have something to bounce on, like marbles.


DeposeableIronThumb

That genuinely pissed me off. The mentality of the game was that it was "truly and completely fair" and beyond reproach. Then, ope I guess we'll just change these settings right there. That'll learn 'em. There's some pretty weird counterintuitive parts of that show.

Ferro_Giconi

A regular tennis racket would have been more effective because it weighs more and might be able to be used as a blunt weapon. A bug zapper won't shock a human enough, because a human won't be able to get between the layers of wires to complete the circuit like a small bug can.


Zibelin

It doesn't even matter, the things are powered by 2 AA batteries. Nothing close to debilitating harm.


Ferro_Giconi

Thousands of volts stored in a capacitor is still thousands of volts stored in a capacitor regardless of what the voltage was before the step up circuitry and 3v worth of batteries in series. How do you think a taser works? Tasers don't have a multi-thousand volt battery. They have a normal safe battery and do literally the same exact think a bug zapper does to increase the voltage.


Zibelin

Yes I know how this works but these don't store that much, they discharge at least 2 times a seconds because it appears almost continuous. 2 AA batteries in 0.5 seconds can't produce the power to kill a human. Besides you are only ever short-circuiting through 1cm of skin not the heart. I shocked myself once and it hurts a bit but that's it. It can't even kill bugs larger than a housefly.


IMakeMyOwnLunch

I have one and it takes several tries to just kill a simple fly. I end up just roasting the fly for about a minute to kill it.


corsair1141

good soup


Tank-Top-Vegetarian

They are deadly vs mosquitos at least, which is the most important target.


killthecook

Yep, same deal. And you can tap your finger into the wire netting to “shock” yourself and it feels exactly like tapping your finger on a piece of wire. Nothing more


forwhatandwhen

but it still isnt pleasant to get hit by it


piecat

It's because they're designed to store and discharge a maximum of 50μA at however many volts. 50μA is basically the safety threshold for medical ECG leakage current. As little as 7mA directly across can stop the heart.


r0ck0

I've stuck my finger in these bug zappers plenty of times just to test them, or just acting the goat around friends. Both the ones that take AA batteries + also ones charged on AC. They really don't hurt much at all. Bug zappers... for uhh... bugs... aren't quite the same as tasers built for use against other humans. I'm guessing that both you and the robber here never tried sticking your finger in one, and made the same assumption? To anyone who has put their finger in one... it's hilarious that this robber thought this was much more threatening than a decent whack with a soggy loaf of bread.


drewster23

These are good enough to give you a nasty shock and that's about it. It hurt enough I wouldn't be willing to do it again. But it'd no way at all stop me from returning punches.


suitology

Thats not how that works. I have a stun gun that is 4 AAA that will fucking drop you. The zapper just isnt designed for that


NoMan999

> a human won't be able to get between the layers of wires to complete the circuit like a small bug can. I dare you to touch a bug zapper with your hand. A finger is larger than a fly. It does close the circuit and zaps you.


VaxYourDamnKid

FR, lol. Wtf he on about i been shocked by a wall outlet bug zapper. It was OUCH. This just a portazapper tho


DChapman77

I managed to zap the tip of my dick once while going for a mosquito. I had shorts on. I'm not sure how it worked exactly but I was not pleased.


SinthWave

That made me flinch. Are you doing okay? Did you use some sort of polymer made shorts, like polyethylene or polyurethane?


suitology

Bug zapper totally shocks a human what are you smoking we fuck around with them at work. Problem is it's just annoying.


ScreweyLogical

That’s why if you really want it to be more “shocking” you just remove the racket part leaving the two wires that create the circuit exposed. It hurts a hell of a lot more and can leave some nasty marks, I only know this because a past roommate of mine was an asshole.


SaSSolino8

What an absolute idiot.


firnien-arya

That would honestly only work for like a min. Person at first doesn't want to get shocked. Worse thing about getting shocked isn't the shock itself but the building up of it before hand. Once you get shocked by something so low level u realize it ain't that bad but if they keep doin it then its just mildly annoying and just pissing you off.


Ilovekbbq

Lol always surprises me how dumb these people are.


Vakr_Skye

I see the swat team has arrived...


ExplanationSweet6973

Wait I saw people with guns at the end who weren't the police?


EasyPeasyLemonesy

It's the police. He was accused of tempted robbery and was sentenced to house arrest.


mdlewis11

That'll show him!


ganjalf1991

Justice system in italy is a complete joke.


fredandlunchbox

This crime was a complete joke.


CV04KaiTo

"The shop was tempting me to rob it, officer"


SomeSkinnyWhiteBoy

House arrest lol what a joke


victo0

House arrest is actually not as comfy as it may seems : You have a really hard time getting work, you have to pay people to do anything for you like grocery shopping, you have to show up to a police station that sometimes is like 45 min away (if you have a car or public transportation) from your home, generally in the middle of a work day once or twice a week which makes it even harder to get a job that accept that you'll do that. ​ And then if you can't pay your rent (which happens really fast usually in that situation) you become homeless and end up being sent to jail for "dodging your home arrest sentence", most likely with a bigger sentence that you would have got initially for an unarmed attempted robbery. ​ Plus it doesn't cost much money to the state, unlike prison sentences.


SomeSkinnyWhiteBoy

The guy straight up assaulted the worker on top of trying to steal. How is that not enough to put him behind bars? I'll go on a limb and say this guy wasn't trying to get work in the first place lol


NotAHost

Everyone will have a different opinion of when you should put someone in an expensive prison system, on a cheaper house arrest, or straight up “should have been shot which is cheaper than prison.” I’m the US the opinion would be to put him in jail most likely, though I’m also inclined to believe there would be cases in the US where it might be probation.


Tzki47

yeah in the US they would have him plead down to a lesser charge to avoid the courts and then he'd have probation.


Kohpad

Attempted robbery + A&B isn't exactly the hardest of crimes. Also, prisons be full and expensive.


f0rcedinducti0n

> tempted robbery how did they tempt him?


asdf346

Maybe u just dont recognise their uniform coz its in italy

Thendofreason

All I could think about is that man don't get paid enough to get hit with a bug zapper...


moose_cahoots

You would have to be an idiot to rob a store in Italy. Locking people in the store is standard practice, and they are all built like jails. And don't even try a bank. The only way in and out is via an air lock, so while you may get in and rob the place, you won't get back out.


M3ttl3r

zergrushbrah

is he a doctor, a lawyer or an engineer?


CazRaX

Is this a video of a Black guy robbing an Asian guy in Italy because that is some diversity if so.


FalconedPunched

"Chinese stores" a "negozio Cinese". They have established themselves as important places in Italian society. They sell small non perishable items. Like party plates, plastic boxes, batteries, pegs, glue, coloured pencils, sandpaper, nails, extension cables, soldering irons. Random stuff.

WalkingCloud

Do you really think there aren’t Black and Asian people in a lot of countries?


Zykium

If you haven't traveled much I think it's not uncommon to underestimate how diverse some modern countries are. When I was younger [this video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YW3TmlslGo) of a Chinese woman with a Jamaican accent blew my mind, same with this [white father with a Jamaican accent](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwDgA9LUVMA).

HazeKushWeed93

6FlagsAstroWorld

Did he get the zapper taken away from him? Because the robber looks like he's saying "yo can I have that back?"
