What if big heists are fake?

Be the 1st to vote.


They make for great movies – but do they have any basis in reality? Since most major news is fake, and belongs in movies and fiction, why not great heists?

Belief in the value of jewelry is just that – a belief. Without it, diamonds would be worthless clear silica. We need constant reminders that money, cash, has value. Similarly, we need reinforcement that fancy rocks are worth something. Propaganda is needed to reinforce the idea that spending thousands for pressed sand is a good idea.

This latest heist is, well, unbelievable. Apparently millions in security is useless.

My basis in reality for big robberies and their investigators comes from the Pink Panther movies. Extending this into 0;news” would be a good idea if you wanted to fool the masses.

Scotland Yard is trying to track down jewel thieves responsible for an elaborate and costly heist last weekend in London’s most exclusive jewelry district. The thieves emptied around 300 safety deposit boxes.

Like something out of 0;Ocean’s 11,1; the gang planned this heist down to every last detail, except, apparently, disabling the security cameras. It has emerged that British police could have, and probably should have, caught them in the act.

Secrets like who knew what and how thieves were apparently able to tunnel through walls, abseil down an elevator shaft, get past an 18 inch vault without triggering any alarms, and then get away unnoticed.

    The take was $300 million. Coincidentally, that’s roughly the average worldwide gross of each of the Ocean’s 11/12/13 heist movies. And, this “heist” will surely make it to the big screen as well.

    I think that one reason for these psyops (perhaps the only reason for some) is that they set the public up for the inevitable big budget “based-on-a-true-story” Hollywood blockbuster(s).

      There will be a feature article in Vanity Fair which will lead to a full length book to push in advance of the movie which will take the colorful character of either the mastermind or the cop who breaks the case and spin them off into a TV series- With the media off the legal leash, any lie can generate income, ad revenue, all kinds of whole cloth, and this non event will take its place in the ongoing false reality and history we are suffocated by each day-

    Yes, the London “heist” was an absurdly obvious hoax. But hey you can also “catch” the actors,bring them to court and it’s payday for the legal system too. And hey presto more press and TV coverage. Really,not much goes on.

    Exhibit A: The Millenium Dome Heist

    ”In November 2000 a criminal gang attempted the most audacious robbery in British history”
    ”The target the worlds most perfect diamond the Millenium Star”
    Complete with a James Bond style attempted escape via speedboat.

    ‘They looked like terrorists’ says the policeman as we review the CCTV.

    Millenium diamond, from the Millenium Dome at the turn of the Millenium?
    Yeh, right.
