The "redistribute the wealth" crowd on Wall Street is shocked - shocked, I tell you! - that there are some among them who are redistributing their own things. This sounds like it's straight out of the Onion News Network, but it's not.
Apparently, an 18 year-old from Ft Lauderdale, slumming in New York, who owns..oops, I mean owned a $5500 Mac (really? - my little Asus was only $600 and some change...) represents the "99%". Right - I'm having a real hard time buying that.
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.
