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!”

What did you expect?

They're in Wall Street for God's sake! Of course they're surrounded by thieves.

Redistribution of wealth to less fortunate Dems. Therefore, not a crime.

Thieves hang out in any big crowd--ever spent time in Europe? That doesn't mean they're part of the group--just taking advantage. If the crowds were smaller, it wouldn't be a problem.

When, with a few exceptions, did they ever have the numbers to bring the pick pockets out in force? Sorry that it bursts your bubble, but there's a usually practical reason behind most problems vs some sort of conspiracy oriented, "those horrible people" message.
