PICKET: Looting begins in NYC

← return to Water Cooler

Concerns regarding looting in New York started days ago before Hurricane Sandy even hit the lower tip of Manhattan. A report coming in from NY Scanner, a tweeter who monitors New York City’s public safety channel, stated that NYPD officers have been dispatched to the 60th precinct to help out with mobs who are looting storefronts:

NYPD’s 60th precinct was unavailable for comment.

The Gothamist is also reporting that looting occurred in downtown Manhattan at the South Street Seaport and New York State Senator Malcolm Smith told NY1 he saw reports that described looting in Queens.

 

The New York City Amateur Radio Emergency Communication Service (NYC-ARECS) is reporting :

‘Chief of Department’ of the #NYPD now @ Coney Island with the boys in blue from many precincts trying to stop the looting crowds

#NYPD escalating mass looter situation to a ‘Level One’ asking for the Boro Task Force for manpower to come assemble at location

Police in Coney Island shouting into the radio “mass looting over here.” Other precincts helping out. #nyc
