Interview with a Pickpocket at the Running of the Bulls Festival in Pamplona

I’m amazed at how few travel programs mention anything about safety when traveling. It’s in all the guide books but somehow it’s never mentioned in travel films.

During the Running of the Bulls festival we wanted to find out about the pickpocket scene and managed to get an interview with a professional pickpocket. He’s very articulate about what the job entrails.

Disclosure: at the festival I had my pocket picked, as did most everyone.

    Paris is the top place for rumanian pickpockets. They are the main problem of Paris right now and a lot of people in Paris try to hide this from tourists. I try to post about this on tripadvisor and they always delete my posts.
    Paris don’t want that people knows about this problem.

    I have more respect for a theif that makes 100 000$ a year than for a banquer/buisnessman that makes 200 000$ a year. Neither of them brings something constructive to the society, but the theif takes less.

    If someone has the skill to do that, then they are working for the money. And all you people who say it should be done by force are stupid because it takes real skill to pickpocket not mug which is for stupid hoodlums.

    @nonaurbuissness The rich man most likely earned his money. He deserves it. There are always jobs available.
    Cool Story:
    I love it when people about there being no jobs.My friend bitched about it once when we were 15 and I went around and got him 10 job application forms within 2 hours or so, filled them out with him and sent them off. A week later or so he had 6-8 interview requests. There were always paper rounds but they suck =P.

    eh… some people like to try and make something look honorable when they know its wrong so they don’t feel so bad about what their doing.. its sort of like how murderers in jail will ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS try and down play the crime.

  18. Rangasoup says:

    Ok, now that’s an …
    Ok, now that’s an opinion I can respect. Some may rather not be beat up and think it’s honorable, and some may think it’s cowardly. Either way, the amount of skill to do this is pretty cool even though it’s horrible for the victims.

  19. AgrivatedKillah says:

    No, I just don’t …
    No, I just don’t see whats so cool about trying to be an honorable thief.
    If you’re going to take something from someone, atleast do it by force, and not behind their back.

    You are so …
    You are so disturbingly arrogant
