An NYC student with rich parents of prominent position is among those arrested for wreaking havoc in Manhattan during a BLM rampage on Friday.
20-year-old Clara Kraebber is one of eight demonstrators who got arrested for breaking windows and spraying graffiti over buildings during their march inspired by the death of Daniel Prude.
According to the reports, the vandals caused $100,000 worth of damage to local businesses, including Starbucks, after shattering windows and defacing walls with graffiti as they protested police violence and called for all political prisoners to be freed.
Following the incident, all eight arrested individuals were charged with rioting and the possession of burglary tools and weapons.
It also came to light that Kraebber, one of the arrested vandals, is from a rich family that, according to the New York Post, bought a $1.8 million Upper East Side apartment back in 2016.
As per the reports, the NYC student’s mother works for a prominent Manhattan architecture business whereas her father works as a psychiatrist at Columbia University.
“I wonder how her rich parents feel about their daughter. How would they feel if they graffitied their townhouse?” a source, who is a member of the law enforcement, reportedly told the New York Post.
As the source added, the incident represents “the height of hypocrisy” whereas “this girl should be the poster child for white privilege, growing up on the Upper East Side and another home in Connecticut.”
The Friday ‘protest’ followed shortly after the death of Daniel Prude and was brought to life by groups known as the ‘Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement’ and the ‘New Afrikan Black Panther Party’.
According to the police, the demonstrators shattered windows, defaced walls of buildings they passed by with graffiti, and lit trash cans on fire.
They were also seen wielding signs that read ‘Free All Prisoners’ and ‘Death to America’ among others. In one viral video, the group was also heard chanting ‘Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground’.
Following the destruction caused by the vandals, an employee of one of the vandalized businesses expressed his disappointment over the damages caused.
“It’s disheartening. You have the right to do whatever you want, but why do you have to hurt other people’s property?” Jason Liang said in an interview with WNBC-TV.
