There has been a lot of speculation as to the reasons why New York was screaming for so much medical equipment. Some thought that the pushy Democrats were being excessive like they always are as they expected a flood of infectious people. They would receive the supplies only to cry out for more of the same. Later it was suspected that the medical equipment was being stolen while it was being delivered. It now seems that the theft of the medical equipment is going on. Cuomo did nothing about it.
FBI agents conducted a raid on one location in an industrial section of Lakewood, New York, and found tons of medical equipment. The equipment was placed in boxes labeled “respirators.” Along with the stash of much needed medical supplies, there were other items of interest as the FBI agents pulled the items out of the building. One can only speculate as to why Cuomo would not take better steps to protect the shipments as they came to his state’s medical facilities. The Democrats are careless people.
More than two dozen agents converged on the location wearing their masks. What they found they could not comment on as onlookers would soon find out. Matthew Reilly, who speaks for the U.S. attorney’s office stated, “We never confirm or deny the existence of any investigation.” Like all law enforcement, they cannot speak about things until it is approved to release information to the public.
All of the people that were called to the location wore jackets that identified them as FBI agents. At a time when all of the states need medical supplies criminals are seeking their interests and stealing the items needed to care for people. The Democratic-controlled states seem to have the hardest time with security and keeping the medical devices in the inventory. The Democrats just don’t care. They could provide security for their much-needed supplies, but they do not take care of it. They would rather lose the shipment than help make it to its destination.
The Eastern sections of the United States have been hit the hardest with the virus. Thousands have died and many more are still fighting for their lives. The equipment found by the FBI would be a major help to medical facilities that are struggling to keep their own people safe and healthy.
The more agents that showed up on the scene the more onlookers gathered to watch the show. It took the agents over an hour to gather up everything that had been hoarded and stolen. Many respirators have been found at the location. These devices alone are badly needed by patients trying to live. But some greedy people thought they needed money and took what did not belong to them.
This is not the only stash of items that have been discovered. In Brooklyn, New York a large pile of personal protective equipment was found and taken from a place. The state of New York has failed to protect its people. Their loud-mouth governor cried for help and when the devices were sent his way he let them fall into the hands of the criminals. The Democrats only look out for themselves and not anyone else.
William Barr stated that “We’re talking about people hoarding these goods and materials on an industrial scale for the purposes of manipulating the market and ultimately driving windfall profits. If you have a big supply of toilet paper in your house, this is not something you have to worry about. But, if you are sitting on a warehouse with masks, surgical masks, you will be hearing a knock on your door.”
The devices that have been stolen could have been used to save a life. These criminals taking these things should be charged with attempted murder because they have stopped the aid from getting to those that needed it the most. In a way, they have signed the death certificate for people needing help. William Barr said it best that there will be consequences for those that are stealing life-saving items.
