10 stores raided in Chinatown

Hitting the stores is like nailing the petty dealers, get the suppliers! They won't roll on their supplier, RED WALL OF SILENCE!

John Liu announced a pre-authorized audit on the NYPD when he is sworn in.

Come and raid some stores in Flushing...New York's second largest Chinatown.

While you're here...raid some of those whore parlors that Ackerman, Nussbaum and Schenkler are making their money from.

There's one service in last week's Trib that advertises a...
"$40 quickie/$100 per hour".

They ain't selling egg rolls.

It depends on the terminology that you use, doesn't it?

You mean my $50.00 Rolex isn't real?

Is a Canal St Rolex $50 now ?

I baught some down on Broadway & Canal in the 90's they were $25.
I still have 5, my personal one is still going after 10 years.

They may be worth BIG now like the Japanese Flying V and Les Paul double neck "copy" lawsuite guitars of the late 70's.
(I have a 77 Ibanez Jimmy Page Double Neck and a V)

I could care less for the clothing but some of the electronic gadgets from China are good.
All those LASER pointers, keychains and gadgets are the EXACT product sold at Sharper Image and other fancy places.
Same factory, chips, circuit boards and housings.
I have researched this.

Why does the city go after fake clothing when every "discount" camera store from Brooklyn to 48 street Manhatten can run wild.
Those creeps sell slave diamonds, Jade "Gray Market" cameras with plastic lenses.
---Items that sell for several hundred dollars and up.

Why bother with nickle and dime sneakers & $50 Rolex's ?

Forget those pathetic little rat warrens on Canal st..Bangkok does bootleggin' right:


One of the funnier aspect of the scene over there is that these huge malls have both "official" and knock-off under the same roof. You can go from one floor to another to check the accurateness of the copies.

Some Thai buds who live in my apt there had Vista before it was released...most of the latest Hollywood flicks as well..Amazing :-)

Realistically, there is not much that can be done about this situation. Marketers and capitalists have made consumerism such a dominant part of people's self worth that they will attempt to obtain the status these items confer..no matter what.

See it in the showroom..buy it on the street.

These police events are simply a means to advertise and remind folks these stores are waiting for holiday shoppers with cut-rate deals!

Why dont they go after the stores in Chinatown, Flushing, and the Sengalise dealers that just set up their bazaars on sidewalks.

Enough tweeding already. Our city is starting to look like a slum.

You get two or three raids a year - just to look like they are doing something, then is biz as usual the other 363 days a year.

There is a reason why it seems like it's only 3 raids in a year...

They need to have a warrant to arrest and getting a warrant takes time which means they need to have undercover cops to go there to investigate for a while and make sure it is true and then will they get to do their action to catch them off guard.

Because if they are wrong, they are deep shit and the vendors will take legal action against the cops and city and then it will open a can of worms, and THEN it will stagnate the future actions of the undercover cops even more. By then if that happened, it will be like 1 or 0 raids a year. Which one you want.

Flushing surpassed chinatown a LONG time ago. Maybe 8-12 years ago.
