Luxury stores looted in NYC as Brain-Dead Bill de Blasio says there’s ‘limited protest activity’
The looting and destruction continued during overnight riots in New York City for the third night in a row, even as Mayor Brain-Dead Bill de Blasio reported “limited protest activity” in Lower Manhattan.
Hundreds of people stealing from luxury stores – including Chanel and Dior – for hours on Sunday night going into the early hours of Monday morning. The looters were seen piling shoplifted merchandise into vehicles while others rode off with the merchandise in black garbage bags balanced on CitiBikes.
The looting started before 11 p.m. Sunday, following a day of protests demanding justice for the death of George Floyd while in police custody. The daytime demonstrations had been largely peaceful, according to NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea.
“Most of the day we had large crowds throughout the city in multiple boroughs. But when it got dark, things changed and it changed rapidly,” Shea said on “Fox & Friends”. “We anticipated it, but you saw large groups of people had no inclination to all this protest once it got dark, particularly in the area of SoHo between Canal and West Broadway. We had a number of stores broken into.”
Nearly two dozen stores destroyed, defaced or broken into, and looters emptying the shops while throwing debris at news crews and littering the streets with discarded shoeboxes and miscellaneous clothing items.
