Woman nabbed for 'senseless' stiletto ATM attack
Cash rage case caught on CCTV
A 39-year-old woman was cautioned by police after she unleashed what officers described as a "senseless" attack on an ATM.
The woman, who has not been named, was caught on CCTV approaching the device in Market Place, Chippenham, removing one of her stilettos and striking the dumb beast almost 50 times with the pointy shoe.
The woman in the video, here, is seen trying to use the machine and swaying slightly before her attack, and also apparently backing off before giving it another go.
The keypad and screen were both damaged during her fist fusillade, which took place shortly after midnight.
Police said the woman has repaid the bank, Barclays, for the damage she caused.
The woman was identified and received a caution last week after police said they'd like to hear from anyone who recognised her from the CCTV, or who had any information relating to the incident in July. ®
I'm. Just. Speechless.
Is it something in the water, these days?
These people can't even be described as the spawn of Satan or evil. Because THEY would have better things to do with their time.
I work in a bank, and the last I noticed, I had:
- no bonus
- no pay rise
- less benefits
- more responsibility (as most of my colleagues get outsourced - poorly - to India)
- more paperwork
- industry average pay
- more tax
- and finally, more hours and stress (mainly from having to integrity-check ATM's, vandalised by narrow-minded tossers who think that everyone who works at a bank is a bonus-swilling rogue trader with zero morals.
Outrageous bonus culture? Only for the privileged few...just like in every other blue chip.
Police described the incident as "senseless and inane"
A nice example of how the police and the ruling classes appear to be completely out of touch with the mood of the population and the average Joe (or Joanna) in the street.
"Futile" would be a better description but her actions are understandable - somebody has to stand up to the rise of the machines and faceless bankers that rule her world.
