$19,000 Worth of Macy's Watches Stolen in 13 Seconds

×


A Macy's (M) in Texas was the site of a shocking crime, a lightning-fast heist that saw the disappearance of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise in just 13 seconds.

The brazen theft took place several weeks ago, a local CBS affiliate reports, when "three men walked into the Macy's at Firewheel Town Center in Garland. They grabbed displays of watches on the counter, breaking the chains, and then they took off," escaping with 80 timepieces.

You bet, right next to Holder supplying weapons to the Mexican drug cartels, while he skates for the death of innocent civilians and our US border patrol agent.

Welcome to America, the country where everything is free. Just take what you want from the "rich." I was raped by a couple of guys like this in 02', when jogging through a park. After the cops tracked them down, they said I looked like a snobby white, rich-bitch and got what I deserved. (I worked then as a waitress, for $6/hr.+ tips.) Since when does this country OWE anybody ANYTHING!

The watches were left out for display, they were chained down. When we realize our mind and brain are a gift of the highest order there will be no need to steal or commit any crime, "we are what we think about". Apparently these thief's don't think too much of themselves believing instead in values handed to them by family or friends.
