“As far as I know, he shot in the air to scare them off. Because I guess he was sick of them breaking into one of the businesses across the street or something,” one eyewitness said. “He just don’t want them to break anything anymore.”
Buffalo has been buried in what forecasters are calling the blizzard of the century. And an untold number of stores have been cleaned out by rampaging mobs of animals.
The mayor called them the “lowest of the low.”
“People who are out looting when people are losing their lives in this harsh winter storm it’s just absolutely reprehensible I don’t know how they can live with themselves,” said Mayor Brown.
“This isn’t people stealing food and medicine and diapers,” Gramaglia said. “They are destroying stores, they’re stealing televisions, couches, whatever they can get their hands on. They’re opportunists, they’re taking advantage. And all you’re doing is destroying the resource you have.”
Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia who also spoke at the press conference said that police are aware of these incidents and working to get a full count of how many there have been.
“We have made a few arrests we have intervened in some of those, we’ve assisted with at least one location that I am aware of in getting a store boarded up so our officers are out there,” said Commissioner Gramaglia.

After a storm in Buffalo, NY, looters took to the streets to practice their trade: THEFT. It’s pathetic, but real. It’s also underreported in the mainstream media. It all confirms my 95% Rule: 95% of what you read in the press is either wrong or irrelevant.pic.twitter.com/dXUGaY93p9— Steve Hanke (@steve_hanke) December 27, 2022
