Do you prefer to live in a society full of criminals or terrorists ? I think our government are doing pretty good job in cleaning up terrorists but on the contrary they aren’t doing any good in cleaning up the criminals or is it they aren’t able to catch up with criminals especially with the flood of new comers?
and here I’m talking about two level of criminals, Well known criminals among most of Jordanians even if it was just a rum or but never got clean up and the street rate criminals, the people you don’t know who suddenly jump over to steal your money lets talk about the second first.
In the last month I have heard a lot of stories about the raising number of street crimes in Jordan and to be honest I didn’t believe it first until I became on of the players in the story when couple of thief stole my step sister purse while she’s taking her kids back from a birthday party and that incident happened in one of the most live wire street in Amman.
Yet another story by next street neighbour who owns a supermarket were three Iraqi guys inside their VAN asked one of the guys who used to drink some Cola in that supermarket to help them to go to abdoun and while the supermarket is about five minutes to aboding the helpful guy offered to help them especially after they insist that they don’t understand the direction and they are new to Jordan.
Few hours later the poor helpful guy came back and told his friends that these guys drugged him up and stole his money.
Please note that these incidents happens in western Amman in two live wire places and second place is about five minutes driving from Aboding and five minutes walking to Jordan prime ministry building.
Not to mention some other stories I’ve heard from friends or relative but I don’t have much details on them so anyone can tell me what’s wrong? what’s going on? any explanation please? for god sake where is the safe secure Amman?
