Home invasion robbers pose as Obamacare activists

This man is wearing scrubs, but he’s not a doctor.

He was part of a ring of violent thugs who posed as Obamacare supporters to pull off a terrifying home invasion robbery.

Newsday reports (hat tip – The Anchoress):

They were well-dressed when they knocked on the door of a Huntington home last month and said they had information about President Barack Obama’s health care plan.

That’s how they got inside to commit a violent home invasion on Aug. 29, a Suffolk prosecutor said Monday.

Benjamin Thompson had a stethoscope around his neck and Natalie Desir carried a clipboard with pamphlets, Assistant District Attorney Glenn Kurtzrock said after their arraignments in Riverhead.

A woman who lives at the house answered the door and said she would take one of the pamphlets. That’s when Thompson, 31, of Brooklyn and Desir, 26, of Nyack forced their way inside, Kurtzrock said.

He gave the following account:

Another man, Vance Jackson, had been hiding outside and also forced his way into the home. Jackson, 46, of Yonkers took the woman’s boyfriend upstairs and shot him in the neck, chased him downstairs and shot him several more times.

Thompson shot the female resident in the foot while she was sitting next to her 2-year-old daughter and also pistol-whipped the woman’s mother, injuring her head.

The three fled with about $4,000 in cash in a getaway car driven by Theodore Briggs, 40, of the Bronx. A fifth suspect who was outside is still at large.

Thompson had been previously convicted of attempted robbery and rape. Jackson’s rap sheet included robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.

The Daily News reports that the “two hatched the home invasion plan while waiting to meet with their parole officers in the Bronx.”

Imagine the national uproar that would be occurring right now if these home invaders had posed as Tea Party activists.
