Tourist gets stolen bag back, pays up, complains...

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

i dont put myself into a position where i could be mugged

it sounds like he had his bag snatched he was not mugged
And how do you determine what those positions are? Or do you just never go into public places?

Just because you've never been mugged doesn't mean you're never in a position where you could be mugged. Maybe even a 12 year old could grasp that concept!

"never been robbed,mugged or pickpocked, it is called street smart."

Yeah Raybull, but don't you love it when he talks so masculine."
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

That's where the body of a 20yo comes in play.

this brings me to my point, people who got mugged, scam etc etc will be more street smart than those who hv not, thats if they learned from it

yup i had a bike stolen from the beach because i forgot to lock it
didnt even file a report, not paying the coppers to give me it back
was my own fault, took it on the chin
I was chatting with a tuk tuk driver who I'd got to know pretty well in SR. He worked pretty much exclusively for one of the hotels and was a good egg and told me just what cunts the police could be. It goes beyond the paying for reports/paperwork and laying money on them for returning stuff.

From what he was saying they also ask that question any barang hears a lot: "How long you stay?" In their case, though, it's not because they want to tuk tuk you around for three days or do minimum boom boom for maximum dollars for the duration. They are asking so they know how long they need to keep the laptop/expensive camera/other valuable in the cupboard before the tourist fucks off home so they can sell it on/place it in a shop for sale. Fucking scumbags, what chance do a people have in a country that has police like that?

I've never been mugged. When I was really young, like 7 or 8 years old, a gypsy tried to put a smelly blanket over my head and bundle me off the street into a passageway that led to some steps and a river. I struggled and got away. That freaked me right out, since then I've tried to keep aware of what is going on around me. This type of feeling is probably what others have been alluding to in their posts. It's not something magical, just a heightened awareness and ability to judge situations from a distance and react quickly if necessary.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
