For Aquarius Cheers and Kia Graves, it started as a routine trip to Target Thursday night to buy their daughter diapers. They were waiting for a train at 59th Street.What, New York doesn't have any murders left to solve? This only proves that the primary function of "law enforcement" is to collect revenue for the state.
"I look around and I end up seeing this bag," recalled Cheers. "It was a Verizon bag. I took it, and look inside of it. I saw there was some electronics. Next thing I know the train is coming."
They grabbed the bag and rushed for the train.
"I was like 'just bring the bag,' not thinking twice about it," said Graves. "I was thinking 'oh we could find a receipt in there,' and possibly go back to the phone company Verizon."
Then a team of undercover officers grabbed Cheers and charged him with petty larceny.
"I was like, 'what is that?'" said Cheers. "And the officer said, that what I did was basically akin to shoplifting. I was like, 'but I'm not a shoplifter. I'm not a thief.'"
The NYPD calls the sting Operation Lucky Bag, where officers plant a bag and arrest those who take it and do not turn it into a uniformed officer posted nearby.
