NYC - Upper East side (77th and Park Avenue) a man is confronted after removing posters of kidnapped Israeli children being held in Gaza.

When asked why he removed them, he answers “what about the Palestinians”?

He’s told to put up children of any Palestinians if he likes but to leave these alone. He answers “f*ck off and walks away”.

UPDATE: the man in this video has been identified as Marc Louvet.

His employer, VanEck, has denounced his deplorable actions and has placed him on immediate leave with pending termination.

Why do people keep trying to do dumb shit in the age of cameras everywhere?

Even your neighbors surveil you with Ring. My neighbor behind me has cameras on the side of his house. They're pointed into his yard & not at my house but they're high enough up that they catch anyone across the street in the park & out front.

I have a great tee shirt of an American flag in the shape of a surveillance camera that reads, One Nation Under Surveillance.
