This story reminds me of the time a few years ago when a guy from Ft. Rich tried to run the Holiday Inn on 4th avenue. He went up to the check in counter and demanded the money in the safe. The folks behind the counters said they needed to get the key from the manager.
He was in a conference room helping set it up for a D.A.R.E drug use prevention training class, along with about 50 police officers from around the state who where there to take the class.
Yeah, they all came out to catch the guy.

"Some of us started to run after him, and the others asked the bus driver what happened. He told us and we all ran after the guy and caught him after two blocks."

When your city is hosting a competition among police forces, it might be a good time to lay low and not try anything.
|Quoting Andaman (Reply 12):|
I think generally the police force has a rather good image in Finland, trusty and not showing their gun power too much. But underpaid, like everywhere it seems.
