I Was Always Worried About This

How badly do you think people want fake Louis Vuittons? Badly enough to get held hostgage in a chinatown basement? That's what happened to twelve tourists this week who were held for two hours when peddlers were too afraid to let them out of there underground shop, in fear of police finding them during a raid. Those LV people are all over Canal street with there walkie talkies spreading the word when the fuzz rolls around. The place was eventually raided and police found thousands of knock-off bags, wallets, and, of course, customers. The tourists were let go with a warning and a good story about their trip to the big city. That's NYC for you.
