It's almost like criminals think that 'cyberspace' is some how separate from this reality.

Well, considering that they were looting from abandoned stores and empty houses, pretty well!
 
2012-11-01 09:57:25 AM  
So are they being racist and only posting looting messages by minorities, or was the demographics of the looters tilted in their favor?

Stuningly well, homicides are down to the lowest levels since reliable statistics have been kept.  Thanks for asking.  It's good to finally see someone around here without an agenda.

FTA:

One cab driver described seeing the thieves in action when he returned to his home in Brooklyn's Gerritsen Beach.

Eric Martine, 33, told the New York Post: 'Guys were looting, pretending they were Con Ed and holding people up. It was sick.'

Police have allegedly warned locals that looters were disguising themselves as utility workers.

Not making a pro/anti gun statement, but they are robbing homes and I imagine New Yorkers are scared, especially without protection. All the best for anyone who is still in NY and without power and scared.

Some of those tweets are either fake or re-using images of African Americans re-used on the internet, such as @StevenGazz. I have seen that picture on 4chan, tumblr and pretty much every other major internet community. Makes its authenticity suspect.

Seriously - a #YOLO tag? Tell me how that "living once" works out for you while you're standing in a court room being sentenced.

When I see/hear YOLO used by these thug wanna-be's, I get the serious urge to punch them in the throat...with an ice pick.

For what reason are looters not being shot on sight?

Interestingly, that's pretty much the case throughout the country, regardless of any changes to gun control laws one way or another. It's almost as though the people who follow gun laws trends not to be the same people who commit crimes and the people who are desperate enough to commit crimes aren't deterred by the possibility of someone carrying a concealed firearm.

I work at a courthouse, and we don't block Facebook at the web filter so that the probation officers can catch the idiots boasting about their parole violations on there. Criminals are dumb.

Considering the story quotes a Daily News article in it's entirety and slapped some dubious Twitter posts on top of it, I'd save your outrage for another time.
 
2012-11-01 11:30:26 AM  
If only there was an incident in the recent past of a large city loaded with blacks getting hit by a major storm that NY officials could have referenced in order to know what to be prepared for...


/we still have black people standing on corners claiming to be part of "church groups" collecting for Katrina relief...

Agreed. I doubt there was even a hurricane. It's a serious possibility that this place called "New York" is also fiction. Hell, I don't know if I even believe in this whole "East Coast" thing. I mean, what's up with that?

There was indeed some hurricane, but this article is a hoax that should have been validated first. Lame.

I was one of the lucky ones called up during the Rodney King riots in LA in 1992 in the Rampart district. Outside many of the apartment buildings you would see piles of old furniture, TV sets and so forth that the inhabitants no longer needed since they'd just acquired newer stuff.

However that TV coverage of the riots was pretty extensive, and they had lots of TV cameramen out videoing everything. They even took time out to interview a number of the folks- you'd see interviews with a guy holding a big TV set and the little ticker at the bottom would read "Bob Smith: Looter". Some of the guys in my unit accompanied the police on their rounds afterwards- getting search warrants wasn't too hard.

/Cops weren't laughing much a few years later

Yes you are. You need to add some pictures of white criminals like Jeffery Dalmer, George W. Bush, and Charles Manson.

I'm ok with this as long as they're stealing from big-box stores. It will be covered by the insurance companies that are also the banks that stole all the money from us to begin with.

Or you could accept the fact that when you hear about looting, 9 times out of 10 you've correctly guessed what race they were.

I call them "incriminating evidence"
