In the shade of protests in the United States of America over the killing of a black citizen while he was violently arrested by a white police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a wide-scale looting and theft prevailed throughout the states by infiltrators within the protesters who took advantage of the size of the demonstrations.
Among the theft and pillaging cases, saboteurs rushed to smash Apple shops and stores, stealing iPhones, iPads, and Apple watches, as well as Mac computers.
According to the “Apple Post” website, all those who stole the Apple devices were shocked when the phones were opened with a message from the company asking them to return the phones to the stores again and hand them over to the administration as their positions had been decided and the authorities would be informed.
Even so, most of those who stole phones and computers are forced to return them to stores again, and when they stole any device from an Apple store, the surrounding sensors immediately shut down all computers so that the thief will not be able to access them and therefore not profit from them.
On Twitter, a large number of tweeters shared the frustration of those who stole the iPhone, many of whom felt that Apple was trolling them with this post.
The matter didn’t seem to stop, as a group of hackers hacked the Minneapolis City Police website, and the hackers appeared in the video they posted on the Anonymous Facebook page by sending a few messages to the City Police stating that the crimes committed by the police would be exposed.
Demonstrations erupted in more than 30 American cities because of the killing of George Floyd, by a white police officer, and so far more than 25 American cities in 16 states have announced a curfew to deal with the increasing violence by some demonstrators, which called for the calling of the National Guard forces.
