Looters strike luxury shops around NYC before curfew sets in
Eyewitness News ABC7NY
As the sun set Monday, the looting started once again across Manhattan as protests entered their fifth day in New York City.
Businesses on 5th and Madison avenues were spotted putting up plywood to prevent looting. However, that didn't stop the looters from breaking in and grabbing what they wanted from the luxury stores.
NYPD officers were standing by shops with shattered windows like the The Nintendo Store, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Barnes and Noble. Mannequins could be seen on the broken glass-covered sidewalks.
Attempted looters clashed with police as vandals smashed into a boutique tea shop in the middle of Rockefeller Center.
Police made one arrest, tackling a man to the ground.

    Here's the change you're gonna get. Business owners and productive people will abandon these demo-rat cities and take their taxes with them (just like Detroit). This simply confirms what we already know. More and more whites will realize that no matter what we do to try and raise the black community up it will never be enough and segregation is the only answer. Period.

    The Protest Mentality: Down the street from me a yellow Labrador Retriever just killed a small black Dachshund. In order to rectify this, we should now go to the homes of all Lab owners and beat their Labs so all Labs understand that it's wrong to kill Dachshunds. That's some very intelligent reasoning, huh?

    It's so funny. I studied at NYU. I then left back home to Greece, but it was always my intention to return because I wanted to move and work in America till I died because I used to think it was the greatest country on earth. Now I see America is broken. Not only racially, but politically, economically, educationally, medically, crime-wise. It is fractured in every sense, and the American "experiment" is failing. For a country that supposedly embraces "diversity" and "freedom", it is the least tolerant and free place. Now I don't want to live there anymore. I would rather pick a million other places including: UK, Paris, London, Singpore, Stockholm, Oslo, Madrid, Hong Kong, etc...

    Police reports of those arrested show that the people causing this destruction are not residents of either California or the area’s. Officers are being shot and targeted, businesses are being destroyed . The more you watch the news the more people are realizing and seeing what kind of people are doing this. I don’t think this is going to stop the class, and racial divide it’s enforcing it.

    WTF there are good people out there who protest against racist behavior. But some people just use it to loot stores and bring anarchy to the streets. I mean you work your whole life to build a little store and invested so much in it. In one night some looters burn it down. Everything for nothing. Black lives matters and we are all equal , but there are people who use it as cover so they can make what they want.

    So uh why don’t we just go primal and hang the dumbass cop who killed him. Seriously a life for A life Kept order for generations and tip toeing around that for this long leads to this bottled rage. It didn’t start with Zimmerman but that was the catalyst in our generation that started these injustices of murdered kids not getting justice. Rip to the victims but it’s time to rest the KILLERS and put FEAR into the hearts of the new ones. We have to stop being so soft it’s killing us all in the long run

    I personally am against looting. That being said lets not forget we live in a country where we are forced to stay at home with little to no pay with 40 million people on unemployment.

  • Pickin7

    Imagine your own family got looted. Would you want to beat the criminal up? or you would let them free? "What if the criminal needs money to live?" Yeah as if the criminal doesn't have brain to sell even a homemade burger to their neighbourhood. Crime is crime no matter how you want to excuse it. Every person have freedom to choose on what to do, and what to be.

    This situation is getting out of hand. I’m all for Justice but this behavior is sickening to watch. Our government officials should not allow any more assemblies to protest this will eliminate the looters opportunities to wreak havoc on our cities and neighborhoods.
