They are knackers.
How do you know they kill, butcher and render down unwanted or unproductive livestock?

Well, I'd not have guessed it at once... and I've known Spanish gitanos in my day... how was that obvious?

So, is that pick from florida, or do we have any inking where it's from?
Then again, if those folk are indeed gypsies, I understand the caption better.

I don't think they are gypsies. They look like Floridian meth heads.

"Copper theft" is breaking into vacant homes and steal the copper wiring and plumbing to sell. Check fraud is writing bad checks. Both are pretty common in the meth head community.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Svarty in Ireland the so called 'travellers' are called knackers. In the days of horse power if a horse died you called the knackers in to dispose of the animal. They were semi-criminals. They travelled the UK following the harvest. In Ireland they have there own villages which the Garde dont enter. Next to my wife's town there is such a place called Rathkiele. It is totally weird. They build massive luxury houses and live next to it in a caravan. The house is then filled with antiques (bought or stolen). They have to build a ten metre fence around it to keep their fellow knackers out of it.
Religion and the daughters' virginities are very important. Their daughters are never allowed out unescorted. The daughters are allowed to wear the most naughtiest clothes going to church. I have seen it myself. It is a way of advertising themselves. Any man fancying his chances would have to prove himself to their menfolk.
The are great horse people and a curse on the roads with their trotter carts. At night they just open a farm gate and let their horses graze. In Scotland they were tinkers.
They are no good looking people and those two in the photo are typical.
BTW they have nothing to do with gypsies.

I never heard of them being called so before today, I only knew them as tinkers. and I didn't know any of that, then again, what little mentions of them I read, those were rather romanticised.

In Ireland they are a law to their own. They are big problem in the countryside where theft of farming gear has become a really a big time under world thing. A cousin of my wife, a farmer, was trying to protect his gear was just run over and is now crippled for life. The culprits are still at large.

The authorities arrested a 17-year-old who they said ran a scheme that targeted the accounts of celebrities, including former President Barack Obama and Elon Musk. Two others were also charged.
