Bulgaria: Bikers Trigger Panic in Sofia Mall Photo by

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.

Dust them off when they come up the escalator, narrow lane of fire, chance of collateral damage very very low. Coiurse it does take some gonads to stand your ground as that Kawa comes closer and closer.

You've been watching too much Stuklen Dom! Gun-mad security-monkeys opening fire in a mall is a tempting image but I'd prefer not to be there when it happened.... ;)

Armed security guards would have solved the problem as it began.
Assault with a deadly weapon comes to mind riding a motorcycle in a mall as they did.

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 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????????
