*Unfortunately this is literally what we were afraid we would see coming out of Hurricane Irma: black folks looting. 🙁
Obviously it’s not a good look and it’s the perfect entre for racists to go crazy on social media lumping ALL black folks in the same category.
Police in Fort Lauderdale, Florida busted nine people who were caught on camera looting a shoe store on Sunday. They busts came after local TV station WPLG recorded the perps entering the Simon’s Sportwear shop through a broken window and running off with merchandise.
The suspects also targeted the nearby CashAmerica pawn shop, according to the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.
“Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice,” Police Chief Rick Maglione said in a statement posted on Twitter.
“Stay home and look after your loved ones and be thankful they are safe.”
Earlier in the day, the department posted mug shots of two men charged in other hurricane-related crimes.
“Can’t say we didn’t warn you…28 YOs Ryan Cook & Max Saintvil each face 6 counts of burglary from overnight #HurricaneIrma,” the department tweeted.
Like we sad at the top, the incident is also an opportunity for racists on social media to pain ALL black people with the same brush.

White MEN rescue people from the floods, and bring food, while knee-grows steal, rob, and assault…. ANYWHERE on the globe, where knee-grows gather in mass, you have rape, robbery, assaults, fatherless homes, drug addiction, littered streets, and murder… Yes, there are EXCEPTIONS to the rule…. but 95% of the Black community are a CANCER.
KillaCommieFerMommie do you really believe no white people are looting? Didn’t your people rape kill and keep “knee grows” as property? The hypocrisy
Wheres the white people? Oh yea, only Baboon Niggers do this shit.
