After seeing this thread I thought a lot about reading/hearing about any kind of shooting when I lived in Dubai. None. The media tends to report only on super sleuth police action, but tend to leave out the bits of stupid police fuck-ups. Everything is well covered up there.
I remember hearing about a jewel store robbery in one of the shopping malls in my neighbourhood; It was apparently so well organised they never knew what hit them. As usual this was never reported in the news.
