Miles, I also hope they can get rid of him, because he deserves it

I believe they have caught him. ICE has him in custody.

“I didn’t cross the Rio Grande to work like a slave,” Moreno said in one Instagram clip. “I came to the US to mark my territory.

“You’re hurt because I make more than you without much work while you work like slaves, understand?” Moreno said in another social media post.

“That’s the difference between you and me. I’m always going to make lots of money without much work, and you’re always going to be exploited and miserable and insignificant.”

Quote

On his ban from Tiktok, Moreno said: “Yes, they closed my TikTok account, but I keep earning on Facebook and on Instagram. I won’t earn the same, but I am going to get my TikTok account back. I am going to keep earning money.”

Vote them out, I say.

Or move.

California is seeing people leave due to the effects of crime leniency. 

Unfortunately, many of them are hypocrits who voted those laws into being, and take their stupid with them elsewhere, making things worse wherever they go.

Could the owners go in armed and shoot the trespassing squatters?

 

https://www.foxnews.com/media/texas-homeowners-furious-squatter-refuses-leave-property-police-remove-trust

A Texas couple is demanding lawmakers take action to mitigate squatting after the homeowners say they were abused by a contractor who refuses to leave their fixer-upper property. 

Yudith Matthews and Abram Mendez hired the contractor to complete tile work in their San Antonio home, but claim after they fired him, he refused to leave. He is now reportedly living in the house, but they said the police won't help. 

The contractor, who the couple said has gout, asked them if he could stay on the property while he was completing the work. They agreed and drew up a contract that he willingly signed. 

Mendez said he videoed him signing their agreement, but the squatter later stole his phone and got rid of that video evidence.

They had anticipated the entirety of the job only taking a few weeks, but when the contractor kept making excuses as to why he couldn't do the work, the pair fired him. He then refused to leave the property.

"He must be homeless. He never, never even worked in the restroom," Mendez said. "The first few days, he was complaining of his gout. Then after I was trying to get a work schedule from him, he would just give me runarounds."

Even California is writing up legislation to react to organized theft.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/california-dems-anger-progressive-left-205537368.html

Quote

The bill, known as the Secured Transactions and Organized Theft Prevention (STOP) Act, would also make any theft of merchandise or property under $950 a misdemeanor, sparking the anger of progressive lawmakers who believe tough-on-crime policies will lead to overcrowded prisons as they did in the 1990s.

Quote

Carrillo's fellow progressive caucus member, Tina McKinnor, disagreed on social media, saying AB 1990 would be "bad for black and brown folks."

Because its the criminals who are the REAL victims, right?

Sigh....

Every New Yorker knows the pleasure of shopping for luxury items such as socks, toothpaste, or an energy drink, only to find these once-easily accessed goods now locked up behind plexiglass.

“Convenience” stores are anything but convenient when you have to ask the shop’s sole clerk to leave the cash register to unshackle the string cheese.

😄 It is even funnier since its so true.

Quote

Rampant shoplifting has now led global shopping-mall giant Westfield to break its lease on its Fulton Center location in lower Manhattan.

The MTA, which owns the site, has filed suit to prevent Westfield from ducking out.

What? How dare they try to stop losing money!!

Quote

This is a common theme lately, as retailers shutter stores due to the cost of “shrinkage” — retail-speak for “stealing.” Critics believe that stores are exaggerating the problem of theft and crime in order to achieve the real goal of all retailers — to go out of business.

😄

Quote

“These closures are not arbitrary and they are not innocent,” Pressley thundered. “They are life-threatening acts of racial and economic discrimination.”

Yet again... "How DARE you stop us from stealing whatever we want?".

I want to see squatters like this physically removed or even shot.

 

The New York City man whose million-dollar home went up in flames late last year says he cannot get rid of squatters who "have more rights" than homeowners.

Zafar Iqbal, 53, told the New York Post he has repeatedly tried to renovate the house but they "keep coming back." 

He pays $6,000 a month for the Brooklyn property after paying $1.1 million for it in 2017. He says the home is now causing him to go broke, and he also fears for his safety.

Residents say the cadre of squatters took up residence in the Dyker Heights neighborhood over the summer and quickly made themselves known by stealing security cameras and other goods from surrounding houses – and directly threatening neighbors.

Hopefully New York Democrats vote this bill in.

 

A New York Republican lawmaker is railing against the state’s squatting "epidemic" with a bill that would allow police to immediately evict squatters, while ushering law and order back into the Democratic-run state, he said. 

"We need to make sure that we fix this huge epidemic right now. And it's coming more and more and more," Republican state Sen. Mario Mattera, who represents the 2nd Senate District on Long Island, told Fox News Digital in a Zoom interview this week. 

New York, most notably in New York City, has been rocked by repeated instances of squatting cases, including a handful that have turned violent and even murderous. Mattera pointed to one man on Long Island in 2021, plumber Thomas Buckleman, who was brutally beaten with a baseball bat by a squatter when he was hired to winterize a building in Blue Point. 

"We need to fix this now, so we can stop the bleeding. The bleeding needs to stop. People are getting hurt. People are getting killed. And what are we doing about it? Guess what, my bill gives the tools to all law enforcement to do their job," Mattera said. 

Mattera introduced a four-part bill package late last month, including Senate Bill S8867, which would notably allow police to immediately evict a suspected squatter based on the legal homeowner’s sworn testimony complaint. 

"Just by a complaint, calling police officers, prove that you are [in] ownership of that home, and you have the attesting to certain facts, can immediately cause a squatter or other unauthorized persons to be evicted from residential property by a police officer on the spot, without court intervention," Mattera explained. 

The bill is styled after a bill in Florida that Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis recently signed into law that eliminates "the squatter scam." Mattera lauded Florida and DeSantis for the bill’s passage and called on Democrats in New York to rally around his bill as Democrats did in Florida. 

Under New York law, people can claim "squatter’s rights" after occupying a property for 10 years or more. Under New York City law, however, squatters can claim rights to a property after living there just 30 days.

Yeah. With the NY Assembly being just over 66% Democrat... Good luck with that...

Its more likely the state would create legislation impounding idle properties and handing them over to the squatters.

I am curious.  Do legal migrants, which is unknown if these are, have to stay clean for a certain time after being accepted?  I am guessing "NO".  

 

A group of Venezuelan migrants with prior arrests has been busted for allegedly raiding a New York City Target store and then attacking police officers – the latest in a wave of migrant crimes sweeping the Big Apple. 

Many of them, however, are back out on the streets after being cut loose without bail.

Six migrants allegedly plucked various items from the shelves of the Upper East Side store and loaded them into a stolen backpack before being confronted by responding police on April 2 at around 6:50 p.m., according to a criminal complaint viewed by Fox News Digital.

Two of the suspects, Brayan Freites, 21, and Yusneiby Machado, 23, then allegedly attacked the officers while resisting arrest. 

The legal status of the group was unknown at the time of this report.

According to the complaint, Freites shoved one of the officers who was trying to handcuff him, then yelled in Spanish at Machado, his female accomplice, to flee the scene. That’s when Machado placed herself in between the pair and struck the officer in the head with her hand, the complaint reads. 

As the struggle spilled out onto the sidewalk in front of the Target, another suspect, who is still at large, threw rocks at responding officers but missed, according to the complaint. 

Both Machado and Freites were taken into custody and were charged with robbery, assault, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, criminal possession of stolen property, disorderly conduct and harassment, the New York Post reports, citing police. 

Machado was cut loose under supervised release without bail despite a request from prosecutors that she be held on $10,000 bail, prosecutors tell Fox News Digital. Prosecutors requested that Freites be held on $10,000 bail or a $30,000 bond, and Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Jay Wiener ordered him held on $3,000 bail or a $9,000 bond.

Here is an idiot taking the labels off 7 dollar steak and putting it on a 40 dollar steak, and calling it a "hack".

However, this man wanted a better steak - a lot better, in fact. So he decided to take the label off the $7 steak and place it over another piece of meat that should set a customer back $41.

Thats not a hack, its theft.

Here's another one...

However, a hand in the video begins to peel the sticker off to reveal the original price of the meat beneath it, which was $24.38 for a full cut of Ribeye steak.

Thats just theft.

You are correct.  There is no defense for these criminal activities.

Unfortunately a lot of people in the examples in the thread think they are Robin Hood, when theyre really just regular thieves.

These jokers even made videos of them doing it and posted it online. 

Thats just stupid.

Well, this is good news.

A resident in an affluent Southern California neighborhood shot a suspected home intruder Tuesday morning, police said. 

The homeowner shot the suspect inside a gated home in coastal Newport Beach, authorities said. 

"The crime appears to be a targeted incident involving a prior connection between the suspects and the victims," a police statement said. 

When officers arrived, they found one of the suspects lying in the street with a handgun and suffering from gunshot wounds. The suspect was taken to a hospital for treatment.

"If you are thinking about coming into our city to commit crime, know that we will defend ourselves," Newport Beach Mayor Will O'Neill said in a video statement.
