A well off college student from Manhatten is among the eight individuals captured on revolting charges after members in a Black Lives Matter riot went out of control in Manhattan, causing some $100,000 in harm to businesses
Clara Kraebber, 20, was among those arrested after the vandalism spree on Friday in the Flatiron District, where “demonstrators”were rioting over the passing of Daniel Prude.
All 8 have been charged with rioting, and some were also charged with weapons and burglary possession.
Kraebber declined to comment on the charges to the New York Post when reached by phone at her family’s second home in Connecticut, saying:
‘No — not right now — I don’t want to talk about it.’
This spoiled brat will have some serious charges on her record.
Of the eight arrested, five were men and two were women. Two of the arrests are from out of state, including one from Portland, Oregon and one from Iowa.
Kraebber, an undergraduate at Rice University. Her father is a psychiatrist who teaches at the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry, and her mother is an architect at a prestigious Manhattan firm.
The family in 2016 purchased a $1.8 million apartment on the Upper East Side, and also owns a home with four fireplaces in Connecticut.
‘I wonder how her rich parents feel about their daughter. How would they feel if they graffitied their townhouse?’ one law enforcement source told the Post.
‘This girl should be the poster child for white privilege, growing up on the Upper East Side and another home in Connecticut,’ the source said. ‘This is the height of hypocrisy.’
Friday’s demonstration was organized by groups calling themselves the ‘New Afrikan Black Panther Party’ and the ‘Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement.’
Police say that demonstrators started out at Foley Square, where they lit trash cans on fire and scrawled graffiti including the word ‘Abolition’.
The masked and black-clad group then moved north. Video shows them carrying banners reading ‘Death to America’ and ‘Free All Prisoners’ as the chant ‘every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground’
Police say eight businesses, including a Starbucks, several banks and Duane Reade, had their windows shattered. Three buildings were also vandalized with graffiti. The estimated damage nears $100,000.
