    Texas. There's a city nearby named "White Settlement"(like I said, Texas) which has a very large gypsy population(I believe their preferred term is "traveller"). They spend winters down here, then go north when it gets hot in the summer.

    I think I should clarify, the gypies I am referring to are the Irish variety, not the Romani variety.

    I've never been out of the US brother, not sure how the fuck you determined I'm European. Every fucking person I know knows how to identify gypsies, they are common around here.
    Where is here? I don't have a clue as to how to identify a gypsy, unless its like a stereotype from Disneys Hunchback movie...

    Restaurants will eventually start asking for a card up front.

    Nothing "hot take" about it, it's stating facts.

    Lets get the subject back on track before this gets closed.

    In the 70s I used to work as a dishwasher/busboy in a mid tier steak house. About once every couple of months you would see someone leave the building while the rest of their party stayed, a few minutes later we would get an anonymous phone call threatening a bomb at our restaurant. Naturally we would evacuate and wait for the police. Every time it would be a hoax, that party would flee and the police would confirm the call came from a nearby payphone. It was always a different group of people.

    We had other people who would dine and dash, often it was the rudest most obnoxious groups. We would often have one of our staff take a cigarette break and go outside when a group like that was finishing up and write down and write down the license plates of the cars those groups would get into. When the person came back in they would ask if the group paid, if so it would get thrown away, if not police would be contacted. The regular police wouldn't do anything despite having license plates, but this was fairly near a military base and should those plates belong to any soldiers we would get our money back and people would go to prison.

    There are plenty people of all races who dine and dash.

    It's more of how poor you are than the color of your skin.

    No, that's Romani. The Irish gypies are predominantly Southern.

    I think that pattern matching is not exactly a conscious process and if news stories prime one to see this pattern one is not exactly at fault. Acting on that presumption is another matter entirely.

    if that means they lower the prices because they no longer have to budget for this type of losses, i'm all for it.

    My one experience of a Dine and Dash was an Ihop. The service was terrible, took 30 minutes to even get our drinks the food came out cold and the waitress had a very bad attitude. We left without paying and I called the restaurant afterwards to explain. The manager was actually very apologetic, said they would had done the same and sent us a 150$ Gift Card as an apology gift.

    I technically dined and dashed once... I went to a place with some friends after work (nights) and we all ordered our drinks, which were all water and one person got a soda. The waitress never came back after 45 minutes, and we never saw anyone else... so we left. As we were driving off we saw them all out back smoking. I only ordered the water so I didn't feel bad.

    Funny, because in my mind they could've just as easily been white, or hispanic, or any other race.

    @freefolk: I wouldn't call it Dine and Dash, but one time I forgot my wallet at a local diner. I was a regular, so they let me pay it the next day.

    Ah, sweet, delicious justice. Glad to hear some people didn't get away with this BS. You and the others were smart to get that kind of info.

    I worked with a guy who used to be a traveling salesman when he was in his 30's.

    He told me he would go to the salvation army(thrift store) on bag day(fill a black garbage bag with clothes for $5) and just get jackets. When he was on the road he would go to a bar/restaurant and sit at the bar and have a meal with a few drinks, then he would tell the bartender that he had forgotten his wallet in the car and ask the bartender to watch his jacket as he went out and drove off. He told me had did this 100's of times and was never caught.

    Strictly looking at the numbers, african americans commit by far the most crime per capita in the United States. Keep in mind that I'm making no comment as to why this is the case, be it generational poverty and disenfranchisement or otherwise, only that that's how it is. Furthermore, the detroit metropolitan area is considerably more concentrated with african americans than the country as a whole (~13% to ~23% in the detroit metro area, with detroit major having over 80%)

    For anyone employing any degree of logical deduction it's obvious, but when you're covering your eyes and plugging your ears reality seems pretty fuckin' racist.
