    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!”






    The worst thing is there’s people sleeping in the kitchen when they come, and they don’t even know about it! There are some really smart and sneaky thieves here,” Terrie said.

    A situation such as this is just an opening for thieves to enter and act as if they are protesters.

    The thieves are merely taking their fair share from the top 1% of the OWS crowd.

    Anytime a large group of people gathers, shit will happen. Reading these threads is like traveling with toddlers. "A CAR!! ANOTHER CAR! LOOK, MOMMY; A CAR!!!!"

    Forgive Willow, this is her new obsession. We should just let her have it, I kind of feel bad for her.

    Gee whiz. The nerve of some people to steal the goods these dirtbags purchased from major corporations closely aligned with various banks and Wall Streeters. And how ironic they'll just have to go and purchase replacements now, huh?
