Ever had to give evidence to police, etc?

I witnessed a friend get brutually beaten years ago and had to give a video statement for the court. Most horrible experience I went through but thankfully the person is stlil behind bars and won't be coming out anytime soon.

witnessed a couple in my day - was unknowingly involved in one of them actually. I was duped into moving some items for a 'friend' who was apparently moving.
yeah I gave a statement in that case -really didn't have an option there as the police had pulled me over with said items in my vehicle.

Was the goods stolen?

Terrible for you if so.

No civilian crimes but I have witnessed several military 'crimes' (violation of the UCMJ - Unversal Code of Military Justice)... Mostly 'misdemeanor' type violations but a few
more serious ones, like insubordination - "I won't do it and you can't make me, Sarge!"  (Oh yes I can).. And witnessed (first on the scene after the event actually) to a brutal murder in the barracks...

i witnessed a junkie robbing a butcher shop (!) and he wielded a knife at me when i tried to stop him.
The butcher and me wrestled him down, i took a nice punch in the face and in the end we were all taken in for questioning in the same frickin' police car....

In the same police car! :w00t:

We have a lot of drug addicts attempting to rob people around the shops where I live. Been many cases of people being mugged and also when the atm case is being removed that has all been stolen. :no:

Never expected this to be my first post....

I was the sole eyewitness to a murder-robbery in 1994. Testified for the prosecution and cross-examined for over 6 hours. Jury took 3 hours for a First-Degree Murder conviction and Death Penalty sentence, which was later reduced to Life Without Parole.

First off - Warm welcome to UM. :)

This is terrible but thank you for sharing. I bet that was very stressful for you.
