Watching a professional pickpocket in action is a bit hypnotizing. You think that by watching really closely, you'll be able to tell how he's stealing your stuff, kind of like when a magician is doing street magic. "If I focus really hard and never take my eyes off his hands, he wont' steal my watch" you say...as he's wearing your watch.
Admit it, though. As much as you'd be pissed at this guy for stealing your possessions, you're pretty jealous that you don't have the skills he does. Check out this pro in action!
