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.
So? Why should you have a $5,500 MacTop (is there even such a thing?) when so many unfortunate Victims of Da Sistem™ can’t afford one?

“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.
“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.

That’s the most concise summary of the effect socialism has on a society that we’ve ever seen.
“All it does is make people not wanna come here anymore.”

Now, if you’ll have us excused. We have an appointment with at least a dozen attacks of paroxysmal laughter coming up.
