    Default Posing With Expensive Laptop In Islington Cafe?

    Nicked in 10 seconds - broad daylight, snatched from her hands inside the caf.

    I hate hipster types sitting in coffee shops on their laptops for hours, but this is too much.

    The café owner should keep his trap shut. I've got this app concept to connect bent café owners with thieves, minimising their down time between jobs. Everyone gets their cut but you don't mouth off about it.

    Some people go to coffee shops to work.

    The old man is sometimes paid to sit on laptops in cafés for hours but it's very niche work.

    The moped scum know the fuzz can't chase them hence why the rise in this sort of crime.

    Need a law change that says they can be knocked over or shot with high powered rifles from distance without any comeback.

    Back in my day it was people asking to service the fax machine and just being waved passed reception. Two hours later some notices the fax machine has gone.

    Problem is they will have acid on them.

    At least one copper has had acid thrown at him and so have moped/scooter owners they have stolen/tried to steal bikes from plus passers-by.

    So no one will gang up to knock them off.
