Security Paralyzed By Fears Of Being Called “Racist”: Shoplifting Mobs ‘Bulldoze’ Luxury NY Stores

Tyler Durden – Zero Hedge Oct 11, 2020

Recall that in late May as George Floyd and Black Lives Matter related protests reached a peak, so did reports of mass theft targeting high end neighborhoods of New York known for luxury boutiques.

In one particular instance the NYPD had over the summer sought looters responsible for stealing $1,511,000 in merchandise from the Celine clothing store. It was similar to other “smash and grab” operations widely reported in SoHo, the East Village and Lower Manhattan throughout the early summer, which sometimes began as brazenly and as simply as someone hurling bricks through store front windows.

But far from a thing of the past, new reporting in the New York Post finds the problem has continued, even now becoming a “weekly” pattern, often with store owners loathe to report the theft for fear they’ll be labeled as racists.

But local shop owners and employees are still infuriated by the seeming carte blanch the thieves and looters have apparently been given by the culture of silence. Apparently to stop a thief walking out with a $2,000 jacket can be chalked up to “white privilege” – and the major brands are apparently most fearful of such an instance going viral on Instagram, rather than recovering expensive stolen merchandise.

One unnamed local said stores like Prada, Moncler, Dior and Balenciaga were being hit “every week” – resulting in some hiring bouncers and other mere  ‘deterrence’ measures meant to create enough of a security presence that thieves move on to another store.

But it doesn’t seem to be working as according one store source: “If they [store personnel] stop them and say anything in the store before they’ve left the building then it often gets turned into a racial accusation.”

“The brands… tell their employees to walk away,” the individual told the Post. “They don’t want to be the next Instagram video claiming they are a racist brand.”

Police have reported recent instances of entire groups entering stores to initiate a chaotic grabbing frenzy of ‘free stuff’ which can be described as orchestrated mob action.

The Post cited NYPD Sgt. Joseph Imperatrice as saying “mobs of young, transient groups” have “bulldozed through aisles grabbing as much as their arms can hold.”

Here are some recent examples cited in the Post report:

In the latest incident, thieves twice plundered Moncler on Prince Street — which sells down jackets for nearly $2,000  — on Thursday, Oct. 1, according to the sources.

In the first incident, two individuals grabbed nearly two dozen down jackets, the businessperson told The Post. A few hours later, at 6 p.m., thieves snatched “more than $50,000” in merchandise and sped off in a white Jaguar and a black Audi, the law enforcement source said.

The local restaurateur claimed “16 to 20 people” were involved in the second incident and the heist included a lookout.

In the early summer some of the most aggressive early waves of looting were contained by nightly curfews imposed by police related to growing protest mayhem.

Scenes that played out in early summer:

But at this point so long as the big luxury brands in ritzy boutique-lined neighborhoods are paralyzed with fear over the racially charged negative flak, the thieves look ready to take advantage.

  1. I am 76 years old and live in an old peoples complex in Greater London.
    We each have a tiny flat and a communal sitting room where we talk and watch TV.
    We put ourselves at risk walking to the corner shop as the black gangs stop us and frisk us for our money, they come into our flats and use the lift as a toilet.
    Last week they stopped me and i refused to hand over my £5 note for my shopping
    so i was punched in the face and thrown to the ground and hit with my walking stick,
    i lay there stunned as the blacks told me “have a nice day grandad ” got in their car and drove off.
    I stayed indoors for 2 days but ventured out again to the shop, it had been raining solid
    and a car deliberately drove into a pothole which soaked me in freezing water
    i recognised the same boys car and the grinning black faces at me out the back window as they sped away.
    I walked to the car park found the car and poked dents in every metal panel, let down the tyres and poked my walking stick through all the windows, i put a post it note on the steering wheel which said. “do not soak old people with your bad driving, have a nice day”
    ​I am now the hero of the old peoples complex, and i was excused my turn cleaning out
    th piss and excreta from the lift.

  2. All because people forgot that racism is good and that you need a caste system, like the one in India, where the British learned, or relearned, about the ancient problem of Semites, in their relations with Aryans.

  3. Compared to their overall demographic, most blacks in the USA and the UK take instead of give. You’ll find that if you see blacks in expensive cars, shoes, clothes, etc, they’ll have either stolen them, bought them stolen, or bought them through moneys earned from criminal activity. I’m sad to state that blacks, are nothing more than parasites, in the west. And of course, the Jews knew this would come about when the launched their civil rights campaign in the middle of the 20th century. Blacks, like Jews, are a cancer upon the European peoples of the west. They contribute very little, if anything to society at all.

    Other than the fact they’re over represented in every sport they partake in, which is put down to superior athleticism, they’re now, through affirmative action/positive discrimination, moving into fields that they are not skilled at – everything other than basketball, baseball, football and athletics. And instead of acknowledging that whites are more intelligent and better skilled than they are at them, they are instead shouted down as institutionally racist. Ergo it simply implies that blacks are incredibly supremacist because their train of thought promotes that no one is better than blacks at anything.

    Like the Jews, blacks need to be repatriated to their own lands. Blacks make up 1/6th (16%) of the US population and in the UK I believe it to be something like 1/33rd (3%) of the UK. Look at the theft, assaults/rape and murders of blacks in the USA? Look at the insanity of BLM? If you allow them to continue growing you are creating your own nightmare for the future. Your descendants will hate you for your apathy.

  4. @paul davis….they’re not ‘blacks’, but bipedal apes…

    So, how’s that including millions of violent congenitally criminal bipedal apes into your society working out for you?

  5. These people are being used they are the most easiest race to manipulate. For now they are getting away with literally murder but as I said they are being used as another control tool against us whites. One day they will find themselves rounded up and taken care of by the very people who let them run riot as part of the agenda against us. They are not favored and yet they are too dense to realise that payback day is around the corner.
    All of us are being chewed up in this madness but we only have ourselves to blame because we accept everything that is thrown at us in the hope that it will all go away well it won’t it will only get worse. What we have to do is use our voices not sit in silence with a mask on but it will take many not a few and it will take togetherness as in together we stand divided we fall which one is it going to be. Remember no one owns this planet we all should have equal rights. We need a peoples army and we need to let those who think they own us and can do as they wish with us know that we are not having any of it.
    Lets not leave it too late

  6. I grew up in the U.S. south. NONE of this is news to us. NADA.

  7. @ Paul Davis. Its only a matter of time before these NIGGRRS are slaughtered enough is enough.

  8. Neo makes a very unnecessary and prickly correction to the abused pensioner because of his Crowleyan need to be the only right one. It comes from a dead Egyptian parasite.
