And then there are those who say Paris has no real problem with pickpockets!

I thought it was the tourists getting pickpocketed, not the staff. Are they victims also?

If you read the article, you'll see that the staff have been threatened by the gangs working the ET.

What the article didn't say was who the pickpockets are; Romani or others. The Gypies have always been active, but with the opening up of the EU, it's gotten worse in Paris and elsewhere.

This is too bad. We always felt that authorities turned a blind eye in the past. Now they have allowed it to escalate.
