Redditors disgusted by spate of mugging against food delivery workers in London
“What is the world coming to? Mugging people who are trying to make an honest living!” are just some of the reactions of redditors on a BBC report on the upswing of crimes committed against food delivery staff.
Many redditors were aghast over the report and said that it was deplorable that these criminals would prey on workers who were only trying to make a living by delivering food.
One redditor said that while the issue was only being highlighted in the UK recently, it has already been happening a long time. He cited the experience of his cousin years ago who got mugged multiple times during his stint as a food courier.
But nowadays, these muggers have become more brazen as they work in pairs and directly accost the delivery crew to force them out of their bikes so that their accomplice can raid the bike for money and other items. They also use force and violence as it was caught in the helmet cam of one of the delivery guys. (ANGEL ONG)
