This headline certainly doesn’t fit the mainstream narrative. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Mayor de Blasio and several high-ranking NYPD officials have already spoken out about the organized gangs of criminals who appear to be responsible for most of the looting in NYC. Now, a group of cops investigating the highly-coordinated crimes are telling local TV stations that they have evidence many of the looters were chauffeured to the “jobs” and brought large arsenals of power tools to help them break in.
Witnesses who spoke to these officers claimed they saw looters who showed up in separate vehicles work together in large groups to facilitate the looting that broke out in retail areas in Soho, Fifth Ave. and elsewhere.
According to ABC 6, one of the numerous eyewitness reports received by police came from Carla Murphy, who lives in Chelsea.
“Cars would drive up, let off the looters, unload power tools and suitcases and then the cars would drive away,” she said. “Then the cars would come back pick them up and then drive off to the next spot. They seemed to know exactly where they were going. Some of the people were local, but there were a lot of out-of-towners.”
Murphy said she saw license plates from New Jersey and Pennsylvania and drivers had not even tried to hide their tags.
After calling 911 and not getting through, Murphy visited the 10th Precinct in Manhattan, where she says dispatchers mostly brushed her off. Police didn’t arrive on scene until hours later.
