Every Parisian house needs a gun now. Only guns can stop Gypsy robbers. Police cannot protect us from Gypsies, as they show up after the robbery, just to fill certain forms. Gypsies are the scum of Europe. Antigypsyism is prevalent but very justified. EU now plays host to a dozen million thieving Gypsies. Many of them reside in illegal camps outside cities, from which they journey every morning into the city to exploit, harass, and steal from tourists. Some beg at ATMs, some pick pockets, some tour the streets pretending to be deaf, dumb or otherwise disabled, and seeking donations for fictitious charities. Then there are the swarmers who descend on tourists and citizens, surrounding them, creating a brief flurry of confusion, and running off with their bags, wallets, cell phones, and cameras. Gypsies also rob homes and shops, using various tricks to fool the owners.
After violent attacks on police and soldiers at three of Paris’s most famous landmarks in recent months, tourists preparing to visit in summer will be forgiven for feeling jittery, but they need to keep things in perspective.
The hammer attack on a policeman at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on Tuesday was fairly minor compared to other recent terrorist incidents, notably those in London and Manchester.
Even though no one was killed the fact that it took place at one of Paris’s most famous tourist spots and led to over 1,000 tourists being locked inside the cathedral until the all clear was given, will once again have the French capital’s tourist industry chiefs fretting.
The photographs of hundreds of people with their arms raised in the air as they sat on Notre-Dame’s pews as police searched for weapons, were broadcast around the world.
They were just the latest images taken after a violent incident at one of the French capital’s most iconic landmarks.
Less than two months ago, on April 20th, it was images of armed officers and the blue flashing lights of police and ambulance vehicles on the Champs-Elysées that were beamed around the world.
On that night an attacker, a known criminal who had already tried to kill police in the past, had shot dead a French policeman and left two others seriously injured.
In February there were similar scenes at the Louvre museum, the world’s most visited art gallery, after a man launched a machete attack on patrolling soldiers.
That’s not to mention the string of devastating attacks in 2015 that left nearly 150 dead in the capital. They are still fresh in the memory.
Gypsydom is the most prevalent cancer of Paris. Most Parisians have been gypped. That’s why Gypsies, the scum of planet Earth, must be expelled from Europe. There is an uptrend of Gypsy haters. I personally have been robbed by Gypsies many times. I am mad as hell, and I am not going to take this from Gypsies anymore. That’s why I searched to find everything about them and their scams. Yes, I am an avowed antigypsyist! I am determined to not let those hateful bastards rob me again. If you have not been robbed by Gypsies yet, you are just lucky. Police gave up on them, because they do not know how to control them. Yes, Gypsies outsmart and amuse all police! Only Hitler knew how to handle Gypsies.
A Bavarian law of July 16, 1926, prohibited Gypsies from roaming or camping in bands as well as those Gypsies unable to prove they had regular employment risked being sent to forced labor for up to two years. This law became the national norm in 1929. When Hitler took power in 1933, antigypsy laws became more severe. In June 1936, a Central Office to Combat the Gypsy Nuisance opened in Munich. This office became the headquarters of a national data bank on Gypsies. Also in June, the Ministry of Interior authorized the police to conduct raids against Gypsies.
Paris now needs a Central Office to Combat the Gypsy Nuisance. Europeans are mad as hell, and they are not going to take this from Gypsies anymore! Gypsy is short for Egyptian, originally falsely thought to have come from Egypt. Gypsies are also known by other names such as Romani, Roma, Roms, Ciganos, Tsigganoi, and Robbers. A Gypsy is a member of wandering robbers who migrated to Europe from India in the 12th century.
Gypsy children are raised being told the myth of the young Gypsy boy who saved the life of Jesus. The tale tells of four nails made to be used in the crucifixion: one each for the hands of Jesus, one for his feet and the fourth, a nail of gold, for his heart. Late at night, the Gypsy boy stole the golden nail, so when the crucifixion took place the next day, only three nails remained. God appeared to the young Gypsy boy telling the child his act of thievery saved Jesus from having the nail plunged through his heart. In payment for the boy’s deed, God endowed Gypsies the right to steal with no moral consequences forever! Gypsies consider robbery a spiritual act and duty! Gypsy children are well trained in robberies, and they cannot be prosecuted in Europe, if they are under 14 of age.
Oliver Twists are alive in Paris. Gypsy child thieves live in camps on the fringes of Paris. They’re sent into town by their controllers, their Fagins, to steal. Sometimes they’re beaten, locked up, or sold. It’s extraordinary and terrifying that such Dickensian scenes are happening every second in Europe. And there’s no nice Mr. Brownlow to rescue them.
Although no tourists or members of the public were killed in three recent attacks the potential damage to the city’s tourist industry and reputation is clear.
Some tourists caught up in the security scare was enough of a shock to make them reconsider their plans in the French capital.
Alberto Loor, a 34-year-old Ecuadorian and Maria-Jose Di Mora, 28, were wrapping up their honeymoon in Europe. After the attack they decided to shorten their stay in Paris, without even a visit to the Eiffel Tower.
“It’s very scary, we’ve never lived something like this”, she told AFP. “You feel a threat for your life”.
There was a similar reaction by some tourists after the Champs-Elysées attack in April.
“I just want to go home,” a 34-year-old Australian tourist named Isabel said at the time.
In 2016 Paris suffered a huge drop of 1.5 million tourists as fears linked to terror attacks scared off visitors. Another report found that Paris tourism has lost €750 million since terror attacks. The president of the region’s tourist bureau called it an “industrial catastrophe”.
While tourist numbers picked up towards the end of the year France’s government is well aware that tourists are being scared away, and met in November to discuss tourism for the first time in 13 years.
The government was prepared to spend €42 million on measures to woo visitors back, and the top of their agenda was security – with around €15 million to be dedicated to making visitors feel safer. One project will see a bulletproof glass wall built around the Eiffel Tower.
Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo also revealed in February how she plans to make sure Paris retains its title of the most visited city in the world.
Paris will once again welcome millions of tourists once again this summer and it’s understandable that many might feel a little jittery.
Here at The Local we often receive messages from concerned readers asking us if it’s safe to visit Paris.
We simply say that we feel safe living here and remind them the chances of being caught up in a terror attack are still incredibly slim.
It’s also worth noting that in each attack at the three Paris landmarks it was the police and soldiers on the front line who were targeted, not the tourists.
Each incident was over in a matter of seconds even if the over-dramatic rolling TV coverage made out they lasted for hours.
Visitors to Paris can expect to see a huge police presence this summer, as was the case last year, where armed officers will patrol events like the Paris beach festival.
But as some of our readers point out, you’ll soon get used to the sight of armed police and soldiers. They are there more to reassure you than to prevent a specific threat against the site you are visiting.
“Police/military are everywhere in France, usually in groups of 2-4,” said Todd DeLong on The Local’s Facebook page.
“After a while you kind of don’t even notice them. I felt safer there a few weeks ago than this past weekend in Washington DC.”
Monique Seccatore Correa agreed: “The police presence there doesn’t bother me. We were at an Airbnb walking distance to Notre Dame last summer. That area is saturated with police and military vehicles. Will still go back.”
One person visiting France right now is Veronique Cauquil Savoye, the writer behind the French Girl in Seattle blog.
As she says, making the decision to visit Paris comes down to a personal choice but the temptation to visit Paris is just too great to stay away.
“The question is: ‘Are you going to hide under your bed until [the terrorist attacks] stop or go on living your life?’ I choose the latter, but that’s a personal decision.
“Besides, I don’t consider the country I live in now (the US) safer than France. I just had a wonderful day in downtown Paris and currently riding the public transportation back to my parents’ place in the suburbs.
“I am planning to do more of the same until I fly back to Seattle later this week. So many café terraces, so little time…”.
Gypsies choose a lifestyle of thievery, one that is as natural to them as eating and sleeping. This organized crime race, masters of fraud and false identification, does not associate with normal society and speaks a language rarely mastered outside their culture. Seldom caught, rarely prosecuted and almost never jailed, Gypsies even have their own court, Kris, where all grievances are resolved. They look upon the rest of society simply as their prey. Most Gypsy crimes are directed at people who are the most vulnerable. People in times of emotional pain are often easy prey. Our elderly are their largest targets because they still trust people.
Zsolt Bayer, a founding member of Orbán’s ruling Fidesz party, who received the Order of Merit of the Knight’s Cross of Hungary, said: A significant portion of the Gypsies are unfit for coexistence, not fit to live among human beings. These people are animals and behave like animals. In the case of driving over a Gypsy kid, we should step on the gas!
Traditionally, anywhere from 10 to several hundred extended families form robbery bands, or kumpanias, which travel together in caravans and rob all citizens they get in contact. Each robbing band is led by a voivode, whom the families elect for lifetime. This person is their chieftain and robber-in-chief. A senior woman in the band, called a phuri dai, looks after the welfare of the group’s women and children. Smaller robbery alliances, called vitsas, are formed within the bands and are made up of families who are brought together through common ancestry.
Gypsies place great value on extended families. Families typically involve multiple generations living and robbing together, including unmarried young and adult children and a married son, his wife, and their children. By the time an older son is ready to establish his own household, a younger son often will have married and brought his wife and children into the family. Gypsies typically marry in their teens, and many marriages are arranged. Weddings are typically very elaborate, involving very large and colorful dress for the bride.
While there is not a physical country affiliated with Gypsies, the International Romani Union was officially established in 1977. In 2000, The 5th World Romany Congress in 2000 officially declared Gypsies a non-territorial nation. This is because Gypsies rob all territories they pass through, raising hell and thrown out. April 8 is International Day of Gypsies, a day to raise awareness of new robbing tricks and celebrate the Gypsy culture of robberies. Big robbers are rewarded with medals, and children demonstrate their robbery tricks.
The International Romani Union issues Gypsy passports. The Gypsy passport was created as a document confirming affiliation of the robber to the nation of Gypsies. Notification of the national belonging has an extremely importance for Gypsies, because these robbers have not their own country and the international rules regarding passport legalization for Gypsies are difficult to establish. It is necessary to confirm that the obtainer of welfare benefits squandered by the world’s society for Gypsies really belong to the nation of Gypsies. Due to existence of Gypsy passport, any mistakes and discrepancies in distribution of welfare benefits for Gypsies can be avoided.
As we look at the more frequent Gypsy scams, remember it is the style that identifies the crime as Gypsy. Gypsies rarely work alone and are always in pairs or more and always use family. There are myriad ways in which you could be scammed by Gypsies. Take note of the most frequent Gypsy scams that have happened to most Europeans. The best way to avoid these scams is not to engage in any kind of eye contact and to avoid any verbal interaction other than the word NO! Most Gypsy scams work on a distraction-destruction mode. One Gypsy distracts you, while the other Gypsy robs you.
Home invasions are residential burglaries usually committed in the daytime and while the homeowners are present. Entrance may be through a back door or window or by distraction at the front door. A male driver will be close by, usually in a rental car, to aid in a quick escape. Two Gypsies rang my door bell. When I got out they were unloading fertilizer on my garden. While I was arguing with one that I did not order any fertilizers, the other went inside my home and stole my money. He knew exactly what closet and drawer my money was in. They got away with five thousand euros. I haven’t figured out yet how they knew about it. Somebody might have told them. But I cannot think of anybody knowing my hiding place.
You might see children walking up to various people and showing them a piece of torn newspaper. They position the newspaper right up close to each unsuspecting victim’s face to create a distraction so that they don’t notice that their valuables are being stolen. When you are relaxing, never completely drop your guard. Often you are being watched to catch you at a moment when you are not paying attention. Do not leave valuables in the open for others to see them. If you are approached while sitting down in a vulnerable position you should probably stand up and if asked something, anything, just firmly say NO! No is a universal word and they will get the picture immediately.
A shady flower Gypsy gives a flower to a girl and says flower for a pretty lady. He will then ask another person and then come back to you asking for five euros, the cost of the rose. They will chase you down as you are walking away, demanding their money. If you try and give the flower back, they will refuse to take it but continue to demand their money. Don’t get caught out; things are rarely free. If a man hands you a flower, it will not be free!
You could find at least two Gypsies blocking off each entrance to the stairs as you walk up them. As you walk past, they engage you and persist in asking you to participate in what they are doing. You may be asked to put out your finger or expose your wrist, and they will proceed to plait a piece of cotton around your wrist or finger. Once finished, the ornament will be tied off and they will then ask you for money. If you refuse, they then become angry. While you are arguing with them, a couple other Gypsies approach you and start manhandling you. This is the point where your phone or wallet is stolen, or you give in and give them a few euros just to allow you to leave safely. Be extremely aware if you are being engaged by two Gypsies at the same time.
You might be approached by a young Gypsy woman and ask if you spoke English. If you yessed, she will share a rehearsed storyline, which will be an attempt to tug at your heart strings, and at the end ask you for money. They might hand you a piece of paper which has the sob story written on it.
You might be asked to sign a petition for the starving people in Africa. The Gypsies will often claim to be working with a specific charity, however they are in plain clothes and show no identification whatsoever. If you do sign the partition they will then ask you how much you wish to donate to them. If you tell them that you don’t wish to donate, they then say “But you have signed. You have to pay” or something along those lines. Be assured that not a cent will go towards the charity that is being named.
You might see a Gypsy with a cardboard box and three round rubber discs. Under these rubber discs will be one white spot, and you are asked to pick the disc which has the spot under it. You will not win at this game. The scammer is very practiced at hiding the white spot, yet even if you are about to choose the right one you will be prevented from doing so by his team mates. That’s right! The dealer has one or two other scammers working with him pretending to be players, and who run interference to stop you winning. When there is no one gambling they act as lucky winners that just keep winning all time. When you are playing the game they will swoop and take your disk if you are about to win, and claim that they have won.
A woman might pick up a gold ring in delight and say something like “Oh my lucky day!” and then proceed to ask if you dropped it or if it is yours. You will probably say “No”, and then she will just give it to you. In return she will ask for a few dollars in exchange for her kindness, a finder fee. This ring is not gold nor does it have any monetary value at all.
You might see a beggar who has a sign which says words something like “I am sick with a certain disease and need money for medication”. You might have seen the man change from day to day but still have the same sign and sit in the same spot. You might have also seen a man with dogs and cats rotate from day to day. You might see Gypsies on their knees face down with a sign placed in front of them, or maybe just a collection hat or plate.
You might see a Gypsy walking through a carriage handing out a business card which had printed on it that he lost his job and has a wife and kids etc. Once he hands them all out, he comes back to collect his cards and also to collect money from anyone who would give him some. It is worth noting these cases the cards are not hand-written but printed, and so they have gone into some effort and expense and probably have thousands of them.
Gypsies pickpocket many people. This act many times is committed just as the train doors closed, so the victim dos not have time to realize that it had even happened before it was too late. The thief is always a young Gypsy of varying age, and they are always very quick. Whenever you are riding a metro you do need to pay close attention to your luggage and know where your valuable belongings are. A small backpack or your handbag sitting at your feet is like taking candy from a baby for a pick pocket.
A wallet in your back pocket is another target that you have painted on yourself. If you have a zip pocket at all, this would be your best bet to preserve your wallet and everything in it. If you can prevent it, try not to pull your wallet out and expose it while you are on the metro as it could be an easy snatch or show the pickpocket where you keep it. Be aware of the situation and protect your belongings, especially when the doors of the train are open.
Another very effective Gypsy trick is the baby toss. A doll resembling a baby, wrapped up in a blanket is thrown at the victim. While the victim panics and catches the pseudo-baby, Gypsies grab and pickpocket the victim’s valuables.
Liquid is spilled on you, and a Gypsy offers to help you clean up even if you reject. Your belongings are then easily swiped as you will be caught off guard. A harmless looking old Gypsy might offer to help.
Be aware of your surroundings and the people around you. Make sure you are not being followed, and if you think you are step into the nearest hotel or shop. You might avoid any ambush by taking this action. It is a common thing for Gypsies to distract the person who is drawing money out of an ATM while someone snatches the money from the other side. It only takes a split moment, causing you to look in another direction from a distraction and some quick hands can take your money.
You might see a Gypsy pretending to be asleep on a nearby bench or table and wait some to unsuspecting citizen to sit down for lunch. Parks are places where people relax, eat lunch, rest their feet after lots of walking, and all they are thinking about is taking a break, getting some rest, or planning what to do next. A Gypsy sleeping nearby hardly appears to be a threat, but this is the perfect situation for a pseudo-sleeping purse snatcher to assess their prey.
You might see a good-looking woman arguing with a street vendor. The vendor accuses her of shoplifting, which she vehemently denies. To prove her innocence, she starts taking off her clothes very slowly. Once she’s down to her underwear, the vendor apologizes and she leaves. Suddenly all the men in the crowd find out that their wallets have left too, thanks to a team of pickpockets working during the show.
Fortunetelling is the most recognizable of all Gypsy crimes. Everyone who enters is a potential victim. Fortunetelling establishments are found in every sizable city. Most who enter will pay their twenty euros and leave. Some will keep coming back until their life savings are gone. The victims are often those who are at a last resort stage of life and are often suffering from a lost love, death of a family member, or illness. Embarrassment leads to rare reporting and, if reported, the fortuneteller is gone.
The home repair cons are rarely reported crimes and often ignored by the law enforcement community. The driveway coating/sealing scam where the loss is one hundred euros is common. It looks good until the first rain. House painting and roof repair work are the same way. The homeowner is approached by several men in a pick-up truck (sometimes accompanied by children) who have pseudo-leftover materials from another job and they say they will do the repairs on the victim’s home for a stated dollar value to make extra money. This can also be an opening for a burglary. Who would refuse a child a drink of water on a hot day or the use of the bathroom? Guess who does the theft that’s not discovered until hours or days later? Who’s going to complain about a driveway-coating job that washed away? They are just prey.
Distraction theft is a store-diversion robbery. The crime is not planned in advance but more of a mood thing. The key is to create a diversion of some sort by a dozen Gypsies. After calm is restored, the store usually discovers all of its cash has mysteriously disappeared. Violence is never used but total confusion and pandemonium reign during the theft.
A mountain of money is being made in fraudulent insurance claims. Slip and falls and staged auto crashes are the most common. These are committed with little detection because the settlements are always made quickly and for cash. The amounts are never outrageous and are usually the “Just cover my medical bills” kind of a thing. The businesses involved are usually eager not to have an insurance claim on their record, so out comes the cash.
Gypsies snatch babies and children to use them as beggars and thieves. The kids are beaten and abused, with some even deliberately disfigured to increase their earning potential, as disabled beggars generate more income. Those who do not beg are forced to pick pockets, wash car windscreens, or shoplift. The children have to give every penny of their loot to the men in control. Children under fourteen years of age cannot be prosecuted in Europe. That’s why Gypsies use many children for their scams.
Famous economist Adam Smith at the age of four was kidnapped by Gypsies, though prompt action by his uncle soon effected his rescue. “He would have made, I fear, a poor Gypsy,” commented John Rae, his main biographer. A band of gypsies stole him away while visiting his grandfather. A posse was formed, the gypsy band was caught up with, and little Adam was soon returned to his mother. How different the history of economic ideas might have been if instead of his release, Adam Smith had grown up among the gypsies and made a living picking pockets!
