European Violent Trends
"Organized cargo crime is a global phenomenon.  In the North America cargo crime is typically viewed as a victimless crime of opportunity that is settled by an insurance claim.  In European countries, by contrast, more aggressive and violent tactics - reminiscent of criminal behaviour in South Amercia, Eastern Europe and Asian are more commonly associated with cargo crime. North American trends lag those in Europe by five years.  European Truck Hijacking culprits are using violent tactics such as the use of bogus police checkpoints, knockout gas that is used at truck stops to disable drivers, and violent vehicle entries while a high-value vehicle is negotiating congested traffic is now common."  The below video is an example of an European Truck Hijacking.
