Jared Woodfield Robbed

Jewelers Security Alliance has some advice that may help any shop keeper on the bottom of their page. http://jewelerssecurity.org/index.php4

From the linked site:

2. Do not attempt to disarm the robber or reach for a concealed weapon. Assume that the robber will shoot without hesitation.

7. Frequently the robber will force the jeweler and his staff to a back room or washroom. Expect to be tied up or handcuffed, or told to lie on the floor. Do as you are told.

I agree with 2, but 7 changes all dynamics for me.

The Jewelers Security Alliance should be sued for that advice by any victims it creates.

In 1993 seven people were taken to the back room (cooler) of Brown's Chicken in Palatine and shot to death for less than $2000.

How many $M is the average jewelry store sitting on and your life is probably worth less than $300 as in the Brown's case.

No back room for me.

Interesting. I was out at Woodfield yesterday and was leaving around 3p and noticed there was a cop car in the parking lot of the Jared's. I guess somebody was getting a ticket or something, but it did cross my mind if the place had been robbed and then I thought about how much stuff would be in there for the taking. Gotta wonder how the crooks are gonna get rid of the merchandise. Loose stones? How the heck do you pawn those?

$427,000 worth of loot. You can pawn or resell trying to recoup say 20%-50% of the value with an almost certainty that you will be arrested, or you can unload it on your buds and low level crooks to sell on their own, or trade for goods, etc and recoup maybe 5% with little chance of being nabbed. It isn't how much it is worth, it is how much they can get.

On a completely unrelated note, I broke up with my girlfriend. I have a nice VS1 2 caret diamond for sale. She threw it at me and the stone came out of the setting, so it's a loose diamond. Great deal. Paid $23,000 for it. Looks just like this one: http://www.bluenile.com/diamond-details/LD02417458?click_id=923963108

 

For sale for $2500. My loss is your gain.

 

lol.

Of course they post. They "know" that the bad guys will leave them alone, and that it is the licensed individuals with guns who are the problem. They "know" that carrying a firearm makes a person prone to violent outbursts. Something about the gun affects the brain and creates the shoot outs in the streets and the Wild West behavior in bars and restaurants, and probably in jewelry stores as well. To be fair, I don't really know what Jared's owners are thinking, but I did speak with an employee at a posted jewelry store here in Rockford when I asked why the store was posted and received the answer noted above. I was actually told that they weren't really worried about being robbed but they were very concerned about ordinary citizens coming into their store with a concealed handgun. You can't fix stupid, as many already have stated.

"...they were concerned about ordinary citizens coming into their store with a concealed handgun."

 

I know I'm talking to the wall but I'm trying to follow what they believe the progression is. A law abiding customer with a gun will do what? I know what a criminal will do. I can guess and be right 100% of the time. The other part I'm struggling with.

So the sales people can follow their corporate advice and end up like the staff at Brown's Chicken or that woman's clothing store in Tinley Park a few years ago. Not very smart, but then again, the corporate folks are not putting themselves at risk, only their replaceable employees.
