Bank Holdup.

What happens when all the state police resources are employed to harass the political opponents of the ruling regime?

You can have one certain result: the crime rate goes up. The readers of this blog will recall the Armenian police report a couple of months ago that reported a 57% rise in year to date crime compared to the same period the previous year. There are anecdotal reports about the gangsters shooting each other up or harassing the civilians (the latest example being last week when the son of the Gyumri mayor shot a civilian and permanently disabled him).

The latest big crime was the first bank holdup in the history of the country yesterday morning. Three masked and armed men robbed a branch of the VTB bank on Baghramian and got away with an estimated 5 million drams (about $10,700). I'm sure the Armenian police are proud of themselves.

This is why SS and his regime have to leave.
