Bikers Trigger Panic in Sofia Mall
Bulgarian police authorities are after two bikers who entered a mall in the capital Sofia on Thursday, shocking visitors and shopkeepers alike.
The bikers accessed the mall through its underground parking lot, rode through the escalators and disappeared through the main entry, their stunt lasting approximately a minute.
Shopkeepers were quick to close their shops, fearing the gang may rob them. The mall cops did not react, the Bulgarian National Television says.
CCTV cameras captured the bikers but their license plates were covered.
Sofia's Traffic Police have reminded that they are in charge of controlling road traffic "and not mall traffic."
In 2010, three bikers performed a similar stunt in another Sofia mall.

The biggest joke in the story was the statement, "Sofia's Traffic Police have reminded that they are in charge of controlling road traffic "and not mall traffic."
They do nothing to the bikes that drive on the streets and their own motorcycle police are the most worthless of any I have ever seen.
The only problem is that these idiots are probably too stupid to realise how stupid they are, so the only way to "embarrass" them would need to be swift, tough and simple....how about setting up some stocks outside the mall with free rotten fruit and eggs for the passers-by to use? ;)
Media should hammer these bikers for their total stupidity rather than their law breaking. If these bikers are made seem as stupid for their actions they will be humiliated and further attempts at such actions would be less likely. Beating the law is seen by some as a badge of honour, something to brag about but no one like to appear stupid. Whilst they might have been aware what was happening no one else was and when something unexpected happens people react in unforeseen ways so these bikers could never have been in control, one wrong move by a pedestrian and.......disaster, for everyone. Stupid actions or not????????
