BMW employees steal 4 million worth of stuff

A group of 18 employees have been caught stealing from the BMW assembly line in Munich, Germany totaling a sum of $4,000,000 in parts. If that’s not interesting enough then how about this. They’ve been doing it for years.

Not as complicated as Enron or Bank of America duping people. Just a smaller scale.

Not Germans! They were Turkish! Although you can find bad people in any nationality but this one had Turkish finger prints all over it1

That is bc most Germans know BIG BROTHER is a watching them. On the U-bahn they have undercover cops that watch you... to see IF you purchase a ticket or not. IF you get caught it is $$$(euros). Same thing goes for the rest of German culture. Eveyone behaves bc they know the chance of getting caught is high and then you will be paying and paying for your offense. Its the same with driving offenses.

That is why to outsiders Germany looks so utopian.

When I did a European delivery in the 2004, somewhere I read that 50% of the factory workes are Turks!
