According to a report by ABC 7, police said eight businesses had their windows shattered and three buildings vandalized with graffiti during the protests. The estimated damage was about $100,000.
Six of the rioters arrested during the Sep. 4 protests appeared to be from privileged backgrounds, prompting a police source to brand their actions “the height of hypocrisy.”
Clara Kraebber, who lived at the affluent Upper East Side, was the daughter of Virginia Kindred, an architect whose firm worked on numerous schools and business spaces in the city. Her father Markus Kraebber is a child psychiatrist who teaches at Columbia University’s Department of Psychiatry. The family had a second home in Connecticut dating back from 1703 that featured four fireplaces.
Frank Fuhrmeister, who listed his address at the Beacon Hills and Harbour neighborhood, works as a freelance art director. He designed ads for Joe Coffee and had worked with high-profile brands such as The Glenlivet, Pepsi and Samsung. Fuhrmeister studied fine arts with a concentration in photography at Florida State College at Jacksonville.
Adi Sragovich, a student at Sarah Lawrence College in Long Island, lost her cell phone during the protests. She promptly called up her mother, English professor Susan Jacobowitz, to replace the lost phone right away. Sragovich was also an accomplished musician and had organized a walkout at the Great Neck North High School in 2018.
Claire Severine appeared to be a signed model who frequented Montreal, Quebec and Dublin before settling in the Big Apple for “a career in acting,” according to a modeling profile. The same profile spoke of her “profound respect for nature.” Severine, a resident of Washington Heights, could not be reached for comment.
Etkar Surette from Brooklyn spent summers in Austria as a child. A 2005 report by The Journal Times wrote about then 12-year-old Surette’s experience flying without any guardian. Surette told a reporter who approached him at his Prospect Park South apartment to go away and slammed the door.
Elliot Rucka, the son of famous comic book writers Greg Rucka and Jennifer Van Meter, hailed from Portland – the center of recent Black Lives Matter protests. Two of the elder Rucka’s works have been adapted into film and television: The Old Guard which was made into a Netflix film and Stumptown that ABC optioned for a television series.
In a similar case, law enforcement arrested the son of actor John Malkovich during a Sept. 4 Black Lives Matter rally in Portland. Thirty-eight-year-old Loewy Malkovich, who worked as a software engineer, was listed among the 27 suspects arrested during Sept. 4 protests in the city according to a statement by the Portland Police Bureau.
Interestingly, Loewy took a different path from his father: He worked as a junior software engineer instead of following the elder Malkovich’s footsteps. Loewy’s involvement in the protests appears to contrast with his father’s conservative political leaning.
Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt said in August that his office would not charge protesters with low-level crimes, putting the younger Malkovich off the hook for now. However, the Oregon State Police officers that arrested protesters have been federally deputized: Loewy Malkovich could face federal charges.
It’s all fun and games for privileged liberals, who never had to face a day of hardship in life, whenever they participate in similar riots. That is, until law enforcement arrives and they have to face the music. Unfortunately for Loewy Malkovich and the New York City rioters arrested by law enforcement, actions have consequences and no amount of privilege, money or influence will exempt them from this reality check.
