Thieves preying on fellow protesters (Occupy Wall Street)
NY Post ^ | October 18, 2011 | LARRY CELONA, LAURA ITALIANO REBECCA HARSHBARGER, FRANK ROSARIO and JAMIE SCHRAM

Posted on 10/18/2011 3:14:36 AM PDT by lowbridge

Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops -- and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.

“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen -- that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”

Crafty cat burglars sneaked into the makeshift kitchen at Zuccotti Park overnight and swiped as much as $2,500 in donated greenbacks from right under the noses of volunteers who’d fallen asleep after a long day whipping up meals for the hundreds of hungry protesters, the volunteers said.

They’re all thieves. Some steal covertly and others overtly. Otherwise they are the same.

Unexpected! Anarchy doesn't work out as well in real life as these spoiled rich kids hoped. That unemployed complainer claims that his stolen Mac was worth more than all the computers I've purchased in my life, and he wants the government to take my money to support his extravagant lifestyle? These "volunteers" fall asleep with money they need out in the open and are so impaired they don't notice when someone comes in to remove the cash? This group really is as pathetic as I imagined.

An 18 year old with a $5500. computer. Poor, downtrodden fool.

I don’t think I’ve ever spent that much on the three I’ve owned in my life.

Looks like some thief decided to redistribute someone else’s property for themselves. Oh, the irony.

Wealth redistribution .... the fleabagger way!!!!!!!!!

Two factions present...

1. The stealing and lazy poor, who would rather maintain their existence in the path of least resistance.

2. Bleeding heart liberal trust funders who are so naive to understand how they got their money in the first place. These losers are guilt ridden because in many cases they never earned it in the first place. Funny you didn't see any reports of crime at our tea parties!!!!!!

“volunteers who passed out after a long day whipping up food ...”

Most likely they were passed out after partying all day as well as cooking and couldn’t hear a thing.

She’s 18 years old with a $5500 laptop. I doubt if she worked and saved and bought it herself.

Assuming she's talking about a laptop, the most expensive new MacBook Pro, with all the upgrades and accessories, including more cables and support services than anyone would ever order, is less than $4,300.

If she tries to make a claim with her insurance company for $5,500, she's gonna run up against a buzz saw.

IOW, she's a liar.

Still holding on to that bourgeoise "property rights" bulls**t, eh, Nan? That laptop belongs to the people. So does your lap, if someone takes the notion.

I went over to the Apple webpage. Clicking every possible option for a MacBook Pro, I came up with a maximum possible price of $4,596.00.

But she's just defrauding some eeeeevil corporation insurance company, so it's all good!
