One law enforcement official said the girl “should be the poster child for white privilege, growing up on the Upper East Side and another home in Connecticut.”
People went on a rampage over the weekend, smashing windows and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage in Manhattan.
Authorities arrested eight people, including a white wealthy woman from the Upper East Side.
The group of people called themselves the New Afrikan Black Panther Party and Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement.
But one woman who allegedly took part in these riots is the daughter of an architect and child psychiatrist.
From The New York Post:
Clara Kraebber, 20, is one of eight people arrested Friday night after a roiling, three-hour rampage that police say caused at least $100,000 in damage from Foley Square up to 24th Street.
“Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!” the group chanted as it moved up Lafayette Street while busting the plate glass facades of banks, Starbucks and Duane-Reades.
Kraebber faces charges of felony rioting and misdemeanor graffiti.
Virginia Kindred, Clara’s mother, runs Kindred Arch.Works. Her firm “has designed spaces for Columbia University and NYU, and worked on numerous school and business spaces throughout the city.”
Her father is Dr. Markus Kraebber, who also teaches at Columbia University.
Kraebber’s family bought an apartment for $1.8 million in 2016. They also own “a 1730 home — featuring four fireplaces, according to property listings — in tony Litchfield County, Conn.”
But this is not Kraebber’s first time acting out in the name of social justice. She participated in a rally in 2014 in Manhattan on behalf of Michael Brown from Ferguson, MO.
Kraebber attends Rice University in Houston, TX. She is a member of Rice Young Democrats.
One law enforcement official told The New York Post that Kraebber “should be the poster child for white privilege, growing up on the Upper East Side and another home in Connecticut.”
Kraebber now faces “a maximum of four years prison on her top charge of first-degree riot.”
The destruction caused more outrage from already frustrated business owners. It’s bad enough that it’s hard to reopen due to the pandemic, but now the lawlessness spreading throughout the city:
“I’m sick of this f—ing bulls–t!” raged Kevin McGrath, owner of the Five Points Academy boxing gym across the street from a beseiged Starbucks at Lafayette and Grand streets in Soho.
The java giant was among several businesses damaged Friday night by BLM demonstrators during a planned protest march north from Foley Square to Chelsea and across to Flatiron, resulting in what authorities said was $100,000 in damage to stores and banks.
“What they’re doing is not helping anyone,” said McGrath, 52. “I’ve been in this neighborhood for 18 years, I’ve been frustrated business-wise many, many times in my life, but I didn’t pick up a brick out of frustration and break somebody else’s small business.
“It’s completely wrong . . . They all should be put in jail, as far as I’m concerned. I thought this s–t was over!” he added.
