after giving this further thought, im wondering.....
does any one know the TRUE facts?
is this a reported crime?
no one here,yet, has knowledge of the parlour yet and it seems to me there is a vast amount of London Knowledge on UKP.
I'm smelling a rat im afraid
no way am i going through the rigmarole of trying to get onto puntershite to investigate.
All im saying is it seems a bit whiffy.
i hope im wrong.
I'm a fairly sceptical person myself and I always question what I'm told -so I understand your viewpoint.
I've looked at it closely. The CCTV looks genuine. I don't think that this is a group of youths filming something for fun and then putting it on Youtube.
My guess is that this is an Asian parlour. The girl who gets pushed around looks oriental to me. Two white guys knock on the door. Three black guys wait outside. This is fairly common when robbing brothels because the black guys know that there's a high chance that they won't be let in - because they're black.
I'd put my money on this being a genuine brothel robbery. I don't think that the police posted the video though. The police wouldn't ask you to dial 999 and mention Youtube.
I don't know whether they've reported it to the police. Maybe they're doing it to scare the robbers off. They may well have closed the brothel and moved elsewhere in the borough. Putting the guys faces up on Youtube may be a good way of stopping the robbers doing it again.
We don't know who owns the brothel? it might be some very nasty people with gangland connections. Sticking the video up on Youtube and putting the word about within the community (with the offer of a reward) could be a good way of finding out who robbed it.
It's all supposition though. From looking at the video I'd say that it's genuine, and that punters should be warned about it.
As I type this there have been 104 viewings by members. I imagine that the majority of those are from outside London. As I said before, I think that this is a local asian parlour. I'm not surprised in the least that none of those 104 members have been able to recognise it from CCTV of the hall, garden and road. In fact I'd be pretty amazed if they did.
It looks genuine to me though, and if I went to a brothel and those guys were hanging around outside, I definitely wouldn't go in.
