In a crime world version of "If you want something done right, do it yourself," clients and waiters at the Palermo bar/eatery Madagascar went all Charles Bronson and chased down two thieves who'd pretended to be restaurant clients and then stolen a purse from a pair of French tourists. As we've noted far too many times, there was a spate of restaurant invasions (or at least more reporting on them) last year. Whether this current case means the tide has turned, or merely that one should not fuck with the French, is open to question. But the thieves definitely lost--because of the beatings they received, they had to be attended to by an ambulance before being shipped off to the police station.
