Two men and a woman were forced out of a Brooklyn apartment at gunpoint after two women told them to “move out or be killed,” as reported at New York’s Daily News.
Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 23, then “squatted” in the apartment, where they robbed the victims of “$800, an iPhone and personal information.”
Police said that the “the crime was partly motivated by race and class resentment,” as “one of the women said she didn’t like ‘that white people were moving into the area.’” An unnamed night porter who witnessed the three flee the building said, “They just left. They said somebody wants to kill them.”
The women were arrested, but charges were not specified. This is a breaking story, but this author has a hunch that the mainstream media won’t be keen to report it.

*UPDATE* More detail on this story was provided at the New York Post. According to Parker’s defense attorney, she “was angry the pad had been rented to them instead of her.”
Precious Parker, 30, allegedly forced the three roommates who lived in the Flatbush apartment to the floor at gunpoint on Sept. 4, and after robbing them said, “If you call the police or management company, I’ll pick five people off each of your phones and kill them and if you’re not out of here in 24 hours, five guys will come back and kill you all,” according to court papers.
Parker and her alleged accomplice, Sabrina James, 23, then squatted in the apartment for two days until the real renters finally called the cops, who found Parker and James in the apartment and arrested them on Sept. 6.
Not one word about race was mentioned at the New York Post article.
