Park Slope American Apparel Burglarized

103436435 Park Slope American Apparel Burglarized With American Apparel already struggling–shares plummeted another 26 percent Wednesday to 81 cents a share–it doesn’t help that the brand’s Park Slope store was burglarized recently.

At 5:27 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 8, two male perps entered the Flatbush Avenue store. One was dressed in black shorts, black sneakers and a white t-shirt; the other in white shorts, white sneakers, and a white baseball cap. They were carrying bags from Bed, Bath & Beyond. Soon after they walked in, a store clerk witnessed the men stuffing about 30 dresses in assorted colors into the bag, worth a total of $1,344. The thieves fled on foot and the dresses were not recovered.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
