Very High Profile armed robbery in Paris

Reports on the Internet that Kin Kardashian was held up at gunpoint in her hotel room in Paris.

As this was likely a super high end place, this is pretty wild, how someone could get in past that security. No word on her condition, hopefully she is OK and the intruders just wanted cash and carryables.

Considering the type of private security I would think they would have, though, rather disturbing. It shows the need for armed security even in more "restrictive" nations, as the terror attacks in Europe have also sadly shown recently.

David, there are two kinds of "security"--there are the Serious Professionals who stand ready to trade their lives for their Principals' if need be (as for a time I briefly was, with a lot of help from this community learning the ropes), and then there are the Thugs In Suits usually favored by types like her gangbanger piece-of-sausage.

Two Comments

  1. At least one news report claims that the robbers wore police uniforms as disguises.
  2. Kim and her sister Khloe are at least two members of this clan who have engaged in various degrees of flirtation with firearms but lobby to make it more difficult for us commoners to exercise the RKBA.

This story is OBVIOUSLY a LIE and a sick twisted plant -- probably by those who hate the Kardashians. It couldn't POSSIBLY have happened -- never in a zillion years!!!!!
Because we all know european countries have strict gun control laws and thus are utopias!!!!

TommyGunn,

VERY TRUE.
Just as there cannot be all of these thousands of reported rapes, robberies & murders in Detroit, Chicago & other "liberal garden spots" that are constantly reported by the popular press. -
Those cities have been controlled for decades by the leftist DIMocRATS, as those places have "strict gun control" and lots & lots of "gun free zones", so the press reports of all that horrifying violence must be LIES.
(SARCASM)

yours, sw

Red face That poor Kim Kardashian!

She has supported Gun Control (not hitting your target, the other kind). I feel sorry for her... uh-huh... okay... (I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop).

It lets her know that she's not immune to her own bloody foolishness.

CaptainO,

One "working definition" for CONSERVATIVE is a former LIB that's been mugged by a criminal.

SW, you assume they have the mental faculties to learn, rather than using a bit too much of their buddies' product...

SpecialEd,

IF the French National police are being truthful (I have NO way to know if they French Police are honest or not.), this isn't an "insurance fraud"; instead, this is a case of "bringing it on yourself" (Read: arrogant/utter STUPIDITY) as the "victim" not only posted in several places on "The Worldwideweird" that she was staying in a particular room in the hotel (with the correct suite number in her posts), was wearing a four million dollar engagement ring & then posted several photos of the ring to the blog.
She then commented on the Internet that she wouldn't be available to post to her blog for at least 4 hours, as she was planning to take a bath, then would sleep for 3 hours AND that she would be alone for that period.

yours, sw

csmkersh,

You are not necessarily paranoid but based on "past performance", the "victim" is just a an overpaid, self-important, fool, who may have unknowingly set herself up to be ripped-off. ===> I just don't know.

As the old Franklyn quote goes, "A fool & his (or her) money are soon parted."

yours, sw

There is a point there. I remember hearing a while back that despite the "lifestyle" on camera, Kanye West had a rough couple of years.

We'll have to see what the French can uncover.

Snake, Javlin, csm, etc.

The Huffington Post seems to be leaning your way, too. This may be an interesting thing to keep an eye on for the next few days.

David I look more at auction houses of late for deals Guns,Gold and Silver coins maintain there premium ATTM while jewelry is gong like 35-60% of the appraisal and 60% is really good.I would think that what the insurance company pays is WAY better
