The kwops are busy protecting the bucks of the elites but too busy to notice all the mexcrement standing on the corner leering at your wives and daughters. The kwops serve the elite who sign their paychecks, not you.

It was a nice party while it lasted. Now they need to get a real job.
Besides a handbag that the strap falls off in a month isnt worth the black market price.

Yeah, when a guy approached me on the street selling Rolex watches for $100.00, I asked him why the word Rolex on the watch face has either two L's or two X's or both.

His reply was "They're defective". ;o)

With that, I didn't walk, I ran!

Rakish Kumar and his wife Poontang were the criminal enterprise that keeps the designer bull going! Even if you were stupid enough to purchase a genuine item from the overpriced stores like Gucci, Tiffany, etc, etc! Everyone would think it was a knockoff anyway! When I see these people walking around with these products I immediately assume they are morons who paid way too much for a knockoff Prada bag or sunglasses or scarf! When are you dopey people going to learn!
Just because you can't afford it don't knock the people who can. If you had the choice to buy a BMW or Benz over a Hyundai you would do that also!

It appears the ports of entry are not protected. With all the money going into national security, I havent seen the results, unless it is bigger guns and gadgets and yes political appointments. What a mess, the keystone cops have gone international.............

EVERYONE SHOULD BOYCOTT BOTH FAKE & REAL EXPENSIVE BRANDS LIKE COACH, GUCCI, D & G, PRADA, ETC. Shop at inexpensive chain retailers & the quality is usually better anyway.

They're focusing on terrorists and drug smugglers. It takes Customs several hours to strip and inspect one 40 foot shipping container thoroughly. It's hard work, and tedious (as I know all too well). A modern container ship can carry several thousand containers, and there are numerous ships arriving in U.S. ports every day. Customs is overwhelmed, due to the enormity of international trade, especially from China. If people refused to buy these knockoffs, this would end, but we all know that's not going to happen.

Hate hearing news like this. But even worse since I'm Indian, people are actually so stupid they actually come up to me like I'm related to every other Indian whose involved in all Indian related crimes. Judge the Criminal for their crime not the race. Every race has criminals.

Shop local and buy AMERICAN merchandise. Imports have put Americans out of work. Look for the made in USA labels.
