A wealthy college student from New York City is one of the eight rioters that was arrested for rioting. The eight taken into custody are accused of smashing windows and spraying graffiti in downtown Manhattan.
Clara Kraebber, 20, is a rich upper east side whose mother is an architect who works for a large firm in New York and her father is a child psychiatrist who teaches at Columbia University.
In 2016, the Kraebber family purchased a $1.8 million 16th floor apartment on East End Avenue and the family owns a home in Litchfield County, Connecticut, with four fireplaces.
During a three-hour rampage, Clara Kraebber was one of the eight people that allegedly caused more than $100,000 in damage. The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement and the New African Black Panther Party organized the riot.
Kraebber is no stranger to street protests despite her well to do upbringing.
In 2014 she told the New York Times why she joined a Manhattan rally supporting Michael Brown, Kraebber was only 14 at the time.
“We don’t have much political power right now, being youths, but this is something we can do,” she told the Times in 2014.
“Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!” the group chanted as it moved up Lafayette Street while busting the plate glass facades of banks, Starbucks and Duane-Reades.
“This is the height of hypocrisy,” one law enforcement source who was at the protest told The Post. “This girl should be the poster child for white privilege, growing up on the Upper East Side and another home in Connecticut.
“I wonder how her rich parents feel about their daughter. How would they feel if they graffitied their townhouse?”
