are you really going to admit to your wife that you've spent 300 euro in a clip joint in Latvia, or are you going to claim that you got mugged and claim off the insurance?

I wouldnt be there in the first place and most guys that i know wouldnt either.

I do know of many (about 8) home invasions of occupied homes in Wola, where the police also refused to come out to investigate/take witness statements/make reports.

Wola in Warsaw?

The police here are very good. Frequent patrols, plain-clothed police patrolling, and when I needed them here once - to take away a lodger who had gone mad, two cars, including detectives were here in minutes.

foreigners usually are robbed in Krakow and they dont report because POLISH POLICEMEN DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH

so the number of crimes is 50 times higher in reality than in statistics

Actually in Polish police stations there are usually English speakers and they are always very pleased to help. When I recently needed the services of the police, they started speaking English to me even though I'm fluent in Polish.

They have certain quirks - they won't deal with you if you've had a few drinks, and everything takes a long time due to the legal system here, but otherwise they are quite good.

As for the real level of crime being higher than statistics - remember that tourists need to report a crime to claim on their travel insurance.

Whoa, Nelly! It was not foreigners who were murdered here in Krakow, I NEVER said that. They were Polish citizens, Cracoviennes. So, I expected the news to be reported here, in Polish.

It wasn't. And I was very surprised by that, so I mentioned it my post.

And no doubt, foreigners do lie about some things that happent to them here, just as foreigners in America looking for a payday frpm our more-than-gnerous courts, do too.

I was simply responding to the original and replying posters, who were all discussing whether or not the stats on Poland might be true--or not.

What I wrote is the truth. I am sorry you did not like it.

usually the hard truth hurts so many people choose to ignore it, hoping that it will not happen to them

but the high criminality rate in Krakow and Poland is a very hurtful truth...

Is ownership of handguns legal in Poland? I imagine there is no 'conceal and carry'?

Legal but very very very highly regulated. Carry permits are only given to people that have a need (security companies). Our neighbors to south will give a permit to anyone that has 500czk and isn't crazy.

You sound just like Mark Biernat. That guy has got big problems.

Those photos aren't showing how anybody "loves to murder people", they are joke photos from Nasza Klasa.

Jarnowa, not at all. I fully agree that you should make sure you have the finances for a kid and realise the long-term nature of it.

Also, colour has no meaning for me. True, many blacks in the UK cause problems, eg gun culture in Birmingham but just as many whites, if not more, are doing likewise. Just look at Liverpool's crime stats, mostly committed by whities.

We have quite a lot of thefts. If it's more than in the rest of Europe I don't know.

But I'm pretty sure that we don't have more violent crimes than average in EU.

I have only been scared for something violent to happen 1 time in my whole life, and that was in the worst part of Praga (Wawa).

One of my best friends lives in London. He thinks London is less safe than Warszawa.

Dresy criminals

those guys must be bringing the most fame, not being the most dangerous maybe, but still the ones to be avoided

Then told us NOT to come to the police station--as no one speaks English there

My former Polish teacher said three people were murdered in the apartment building next to hers in 2008, and that this never made the news, either. Not the Polish or English speaking versions. I scoured them for days looking for it; only a consulate employee who knew about it and confirmed it, helped me out there.

Excuse me but I don't believe It...

I don't either. I'm struggling to see how three foreign nationals could get murdered in Poland (big news) and yet not be reported publicly.

She mentioned that it wasn't foreign nationals.

why you guys avoid talking about the dresy criminals?
delphiandomine 83 | 17,720

She mentioned that it wasn't foreign nationals.

Wouldn't it still be big news regardless if three people ended up murdered?

(I find it incredibly hard to believe that consulate staff would be aware of something like this but not the Polish press)

in many places in the world, and especially in Poland, in order not to drive away the tourists, they don't mention when foreigners are murdered
Seanus 15 | 19,706

Do you tend to find that information on leaflets and brochures? ;)

All people should know that killing exists in every country and there's always a chance that it could happen to you.

Rubbish. Newspapers love a story, and what sells newspapers more than a scandalous story about the murder of foreign nationals?

good, now count the blacks and the whites in UK and think again.
Seanus 15 | 19,706

Then have a look at who is trodden on more. Those that were denied jobs because of their colour and think again.

Some are just pure morons, though.

Good, now count the blacks that got a job because the company was pressed to hire more coloured people instead of whites.

also count the blacks/paki's that got a government job due to "affirmative action".
Seanus 15 | 19,706

Pressed, yes. Forced? No. It's the same with Brits who moan about all the Poles but it is invariably British companies which hire them.

Have you any awareness of the Civil Service recruitment procedures? It's hard to gain access to the Fast Track system and the right candidate is chosen for the right job, largely irrespective of colour.

Name me one famous black person or Pakistani that has a significant government job.

Keith Vaz?

It's the same with Brits who moan about all the Poles but it is invariably British companies which hire them.

It's the same Brits that choose to go and buy cigarettes and alcohol in France rather than in the UK, then they complain about the country using cheaper foreign labour. It's okay to embrace the EU to buy your cheap Stella, but not okay to embrace cheap labour? Can you say...double standards?

(the same people, incidentally, complained something rotten when HM Customs used to seize goods and cars by the tonne)
Seanus 15 | 19,706

Keith Vaz????? Who on earth is he?

Double standards, absolutely. Britain has always been that way, in when the going is good and out when it doesn't suit them. Israel, Hong Kong, you name it.

It's a much more criminal country than Poland.

Poles will attack you only if you do sth and provoke them.They don't attack without a reason.
Seanus 15 | 19,706
6 Feb 2010 #120
So there are no unprovoked attacks here at all?? That's just not true!
