“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen -- that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”

"...There are some really smart and sneaky thieves here,” Terrie said.

“I had umbrellas stolen, a fold-up bed I brought because my back is bad -- they took that, too!”

(snip)

They should be happy that they're now paying their fair share. Who are they to have more than anyone else?

I gotta wonder what made them think that a $5500 computer wouldn't be stolen in such an easy pickings situation as this.


It's like the people around here who continue to have their laptops stolen from their cars at Oakland Mall. Just because it's in Troy and not Detroit doesn't make it safe for that. "It's such a nice part of town". Duh-theives don't steal in their own neighborhoods because nobody has anything worth stealing. They go to Troy, where people let their guards down. Theives will target the protesters because they also have let their guard down, plus, the theives don't have to act all upscale around them to blend in.

$5500 computer, well, it was undoubtedly an Apple product then, otherwise it'd be a $4400 computer. It must be awful to be so downtrodden that one must make do with a 5.5 grand computer...

I don't think every comuter on my home network (4 people and a spare computer or two), plus the wifi hardware, would add up to $5500, probably not even based on the price of each one on the day it was purchased or built.

It could have been a gift!


That's what my sister always says when I complain about my clients on welfare who have flat screen televisions, cable tv service, Air Jordans for all their kids, and a new Wii system.

All of my electronics including a TV, laptop and desktop don't add up to 5.5k.

I hope the young punk has to work for the next one.

A $5,500 MAC? That's probably for her insurance claim. I build my own PCs for around $500!

I bought a gaming laptop from Alienware for 3k (really worth 4k but i got a deal) that would eat that MAC's lunch.

Money was stolen as well. Imagine if there was some sort of business which could look after large sums of money and allow you to take it back gradually in smaller amounts. :rolleyes:

Up till last year, you could get a Psystar "hackintosh" for half that. But they got shut down for obvious reasons. :p And there's already a new company taking over where they left off- -Quo (http://www.tuaw.com/2010/09/10/psystar-is-dead-long-live-quo-computer/). Don't know if they do laptops, though.

Probably a $1500 macbook with $1000 worth of software and 2500 mp3 files.
