Police focus on South Florida 'gypsy' crimes sparks criticism from Roma advocates

Jul 4, 2011 Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel 10

The high number of auto-dent-repair scams, "till taps" and distraction thefts that plague South Florida are trademark cons of criminal gypsy families, police say, and they want the public, and elderly residents in particular, to watch out.

This morning in the Publix plaza's parking lot on Sheridan Street and SE 5th Avenue, Dania Beach, a gypsy woman approached me in a car. She gave me the usual hatdship nonsense story and asked for money. I bluntly told her that it was illegal to trespass on the supermarket's private property, and that if she did not leave, i would call security.

I also threatened to memorize her license plate and give the info to the police to trace her. Ordinary citizens need to get involved and help the cops to nail these vermin.

My business? The moment someone solicits me for money, it becomes utterly my business! Also, in the case of most ethnicities you get good and bad individuals. But in the case of gypsies, the culture itself is based on scam families. She can feed her family by working or by getting government assistance, but not by scamming people.
I can feel compassion for a disabled person, but not for human parasites. Also, learn to spell "business" properly.

And as for your argument that it's up to the manager of Publix, not me, guess what? I am one of many shoppers who actively work with the store managers, city governments and the police to discourage these cockroaches. Yes, the economy is hard, and we need programs for those willing to rehabilitate themselves if given a chance. There are many genuine cases deserving help. But what aggressive panhandlers, drunks, drug addicts and gypsy scammers deserve is to be put in a pit and shot.

Anti-discrimination and civil rights laws only apply to specific matters, like when someone applies for a job or tries to buy a house. The Supreme Court has ruled that individuals have a First Amendment right to be openly prejudiced in personal matters.

When gypsies approach you with their b.s. sob stories, just tell them bluntly: "I have nothing to do with gypsies. Just don't talk to me!" If everyone started treating them like lepers, the bastards would find their fraud business drying up.

I once told a gypsy woman that Hitler was wrong in killing the Jews, but that if he killed her I would not complain. Man, you should have seen how shocked and upset her. Insult these people to the face. Make remarks calculated to hurt and disgust. When more and more persons tell them to go jump off a bridge, their game will be up.
