In the capital subway, alas, the militia can't brag of grandiose progress in capture of thieves. Since the beginning of year of 56 people it is detained "on hot", and only 11 criminal cases are brought. The others got off "light" or administrative punishment. So unfavourable results are explainable: in the subway five quick employees, and potential victims more than two million daily work.
Not the last role was played also by a raising the government of a level on which to thieves allowed to steal with impunity for the sum up to 900 hryvnias. If doesn't run so much, criminal liability doesn't come.
- In rush hour in the subway of the pickpocket to detain it is unreal, - the chief of linear management of militia in the subway Vadim Marinkevich claims. - They work "at the level of coxofemoral joints". And when people stand densely having nestled to each other, to notice how the pickpocket acts, it is impossible. It is difficult to field investigators to detain the thief even if they will appear with him in one car. Even if will know by sight, it can be taken only in theft time. But in rush hour at us such chaos what even to reach the thief in the car if it costs at other doors, is impossible. You remember a situation with Zheglov in the tram? When they made the way to "Brick", and it already "dumped" a purse? ! Here often and happens. Plus the relation of citizens became another. They protect only the. Don't give help of militia. In vain people are afraid of that thieves can пырнуть a knife. Pickpockets aren't engaged in it. It is the highest thieves' caste. They have lawyers, "common fund" - they only who supports each other, carry out, so to speak, an exchange of experience. "Go on tour" on CIS countries, but work only in subways.
Not to each Zheglov the pickpocket on teeth
So Management of militia of the capital subway reacted to "VV" note "Thieves in the subway" published in No. 112 of June 19. It was a question of how the inhabitant of Kiev, tried to prevent pickpockets, thieves struck in a jaw.The victim appealed to the militiaman in the subway to detain criminals, but that didn't undertake actions, and the victim drew a conclusion that the militia covers criminals. Militiamen in turn will confess that lose in fight against pickpockets for a number of reasons.
On capture of thieves in the subway, alas, militiamen of linear management can't brag of grandiose progress. Since the beginning of year of 56 people it is detained "on hot", and only 11 criminal cases are brought. The others got off "light" or administrative punishment. So unfavourable results are explainable - in the subway five quick employees, and potential victims more than two million daily work. Besides not the last role was played also by a raising the government of a level on which to thieves allowed to steal with impunity for the sum up to 900 UAH. If doesn't run so much, criminal liability doesn't come.
- We repeatedly detain thieves, we carry out work, we make админпротоколы, - Vadim Marinkevich explains. - But the number of these protocols doesn't play any role. It is possible to pay today a penalty, and tomorrow again to get, and criminal case won't be brought. This article withdrew from the code. And administrative punishment - a penalty in 51 гривню. Though once there was a case, detained 31 - the summer inhabitant of Kiev four times judged, three times for thefts, between Vokzalnaya and Politekhnichesky institut stations with mobile on hands. At a search found two more. It ask: "Whose phones? ". It, looking in eyes: "Mine! ". Employees called on them and quickly established that phones stolen. Owners of phones wrote applications and the sums stolen, in total was enough for initiation of legal proceedings. Unfortunately, not always the stolen thing can pull on article.
On the account in militia of the subway consists about 45-ти pickpockets. Age - from 30-ти till 68 years. The majority repeatedly judged, with wide thieves' experience.
"Щипачи" any more don't cut a bag
Years seven don't cut bags and pockets. Because it is possible to bring in damage of property to trial. Accurately take out mobilka and purses. While the structure arrives to the following station, thieves manage to take away from there all money. And as soon as the door opens, dump stolen between the car and a platform. Or throw on a floor and when the door will open, a foot push together in this interval. They are helped very much by workmates, they and go that on two - three persons.It isn't obligatory for some to enter the car, they manage to clean passengers when landing. Is also such which I "work" in transitions between stations, the people hardly move to rush hour.
- Every year to catch thieves red-handed it is difficult, real "actors" meet among them, - Vadim Marinkevich tells. - As - that field investigators tried to detect one in the act, so it lifted shout, say, help, people kind, hooligans attacked me, want to beat. And that you think, the people, without having understood, started beating off the thief from militiamen. And he managed to dump at this time a purse. Yes, it is unconditional, field investigators don't go in a militia form, they shouldn't be allocated from weight at all. Work demands to be and unshaven, and to go in ordinary-looking clothes, not peeled shoes, without drawing attention.
Pickpockets in the subway feel quite at home. They know all possible ways of retreat where it is possible to hide. These children have also the plan of work per day - at least 100 dollars on the person. 20 dollars go to "common fund", and the rest leaves on cheerful and carefree life - to descend in restaurant, a casino. Conditionally the pickpockets trading in the capital subway, it is possible to break on geographical groups: Lugansk direction, Donetsk, Vinnytsia. Separate - the Caucasian region.
In many respects, according to militiamen, with pocket thefts in the subway video surveillance would help to correct a situation. But with installation of cameras tracking the question didn't promote. For three years the militia throws letters subway management, the Kiev municipal administration with a request to allocate money for equipment of stations by cameras.
- In Moscow already reached before that at them from this year in each car costs on five surveillance cameras, - Vadim Marinkevich explains. - And at us this request rejected in connection with insufficient financing. At four stations at us on two militiamen, and on the others - on one. Here such forces also it is necessary to catch thieves, and after all except them efforts suffice.
Protection of the Kiev subway serves 46 stations. Staff - 600 people, quick employees - 5. In Moscow - 187 stations which serve 6000 police officers. Employees of criminal investigation department - 280 people. The passenger traffic this year in Kiev increased. If last year - more than 1 million people, in they are 2 million passengers per day. Five field investigators are the share of two million people.
In rush hour it is necessary to show consideration for personal belongings very much. Since there was a mobile communication underground, cases of thefts of mobile phones became frequent. Thieves even before landing in the car look narrowly at people speaking by phone, estimate cost and observe where after conversation hide a tube. It is possible to get into any pocket for them. It is desirable mobile to hide in a bag, a man purse, a portfolio and to hold them in hand. Alas, women quite often provoke thieves, don't close a bag and carry them on a shoulder. And it can't be done. Anything from valuable things you shouldn't leave in readily available places.
