This is nuts


This video is a sad example of what people in America think is a priority.

Apple has 100 billion in cash and uses slave labor to produce their silly, overpriced toys! It's widely thought that children are STILL employed at their prison-sweatshops.

Apple could build a factory in every state AND pay every employee well (including those at Apple Stores) AND pay US taxes and still not feel a pinch in any way.

But the company CHOOSES TO USE SLAVE LABOR AND NOT PAY US TAXES!!!!! how-does-apple-avoid-taxes/

Apple could end world poverty if they used the 100 BILLION DOLLARS THEY HAVE IN THEIR CASH RESERVES!

Stop supporting this evil giant! And yes - they're all evil but they're not all sitting on 100 billion!

INS agents should have performed sweeps of all of these lines. I'm sure many illegals and criminals would have been arrested.

Buying and reselling to make a few bucks...perfectly legal. Nothing nuts about it. We'll see ads on E-Bay soon, for the same purpose.

I love seeing the hypocrisies of society exploited so flagrantly right in your face and its all on video.

They should not allow this - like dozens of day laborers around hardware stores.

Sidewalks are not for sleeping, sitting, or blocking and the stores responsible for this should be fined and threatened with closure.

I don't think precious Police power should be wasted on "organizing," these line. If I lived in the area I'd be pissed.

this shows how absurd the policing is.You can loiter on the streets and litter the curbs for 2 days but it's forbidden to sleep on the sidewalks.

each cop deployed there could have prevented a rape,a mugging,or a shooting.

this was a great film.Apple does not give a shit.It's all about the bottom line and keeping the illusion of free market to thrive.

I saw these lines and thought something was off,considering that people already have samsungs and droids.And the iphone6 is just an imitation of those.

standing on line was a cultural event once,what a bunch of morons.

If Jews and Italians did this it would be considered organised crime and the book would be thrown at them. But these Chinese don't speak English so it's okay, it's there culture!!!

I'm sure the landlords would love to see their tenants thrown out, especially Apple.

I bought a cheap Tracfone a few years back and that is what I use. I will never buy a Apple phone. Not worth a punch in the face when someone wants to steal it. This video had me shaking my head on how all these people are sleeping on the street for days for a stupid phone. Just plain crazy...

Obviously, Chinese people love iPhone a lot.

Who cares!!!

Many years ago similar things occurred with waiting for tickets to big concerts. People would wait for scalpers, friends, I've even done it myself.

Back then it was more prevalent than people waiting for a new iPhone.

Really, who cares who's waiting, as long as they act appropriately.

If it were Bangladeshi folks waiting specifically for Samsung, would it make a difference.

If we spent just a small percentage of this critical thinking in other areas, change would be closer to a reality.

Anon, what are you talking about? The NYPD would never bust a Jew. They have their run of the place even on public transportation. September is the month when Jews get NYPD as a private security force. Yet when there's a serious crime, the Jews want to handle it within the community and get pissed when NYPD gets involved.

Honestly, they should have hosed the street down with water cannons. Kill two birds with one hose.

I don't understand paying someone to wait in line when you can just order it delivered to your house the day it's released.

This is just stupid.

What if Apple sold everything online? No more of these third-world-looking lines.

Look how fat that cop is. Why don't cops ever walk around? You know he doesn't.
