I must protest sir,
Finally you show your true colors.
This thread is no place to display racist insinuations or accusations or your political opinions thereof of people who are not of your persuasion,
It was not necessary to state a particular nationality in order to get your point across, which you chose to do without ANY proof. In addition making a political statement was also not necessary.
It is blatent prejudice to insinuate what you chose to do.
Please confine your political comments to the appropriate political threads . That way the rest of us who would like to read these forums without your political overtones.
Sorry to hear of the break in and hope the people who did it get caught.
I just reported the facts on record without embellishment and I did not state any particular distinct nationality or country of origin as that was not relayed to me by the police. I am of Sicilian/Hispanic decent and if the thieves were known to be from roving band from Sicily, Spain or any one particular Spanish country I would have relayed that information too without bias. There was video surveillance showing one female member of the gang very clearly and it coincided with the police information which store personnel also verified about the thieves. Finger Prints, Video Surveillance, Eyewitnesses from Three Stores about who it was that did this so you really can't say there is no Proof as there is plenty of Proof, the task now remains to physically locate who is known to be doing this.
The police are familiar with who did it and where they came from and they are pursuing them. You can't change what happened, who did it or where they are known to come from. It does not mean nor did I say that everyone that comes from the Islands in general is part of this or any other gang of thieves and if that is what you are implying then you are 180 degrees off track.
Should I lie and distort the facts to better suit your sensitivities? That would be then be very dishonest and unethical too.
Boaters need to be aware of this band, their methods, where they are working out of and that they are not just targeting one country being very mobile. Calling it out publicly to raise awareness is the best way I know to limit the harm that they are doing. Hopefully if we all stay aware keeping our eyes open and report these things this group will be brought to justice and their activities stopped.
Leave that political paranoia baggage out of it and be part of the solution for dealing with these international roving thieves.
