A wave of "smash-and-grab" crimes is plaguing upscale stores in major US cities, with mobs of thieves making off with expensive goods in brazen, nighttime raids.The Leftists Dems continue to make heros out of some of the worst scum. Arbery, the Rittenhouse attackers, the Waukesha killer driver, Ferguson's Michael Brown, etc. were all career criminals that nobody wants to be living near.
At least 18 people broke into a Nordstrom department store in Los Angeles Monday night and stole thousands of dollars in merchandise, the city's police chief said.
The thefts followed a rash of similar incidents over the weekend in the San Francisco Bay Area. A group of thieves swarmed the Southland Mall in Hayward on Sunday evening, wielding hammers to smash cases at a jewelry store before grabbing items and fleeing.
to No, they are not all Black. If you want to live in a civilized society, then we need aggressive law enforcement to keep these guys in jail.
Instead we have Democrats who are aggressively letting these criminals out of jail.
Georgia has convicted the citizens who tried to confront Arbery. Evey the bystander neighbor who recorded the video has been convicted of murder. The state has also passed a hate crime law, and a law abolishing most citizens arrests.
These changes seem very bad to me. In traditional American law, the police are not really that powerful. Their power to arrest suspects and use lethal force is not that much different from that of ordinary citizens.
The authoritarian Left wants to change that. They want stronger police powers and weaker citizen rights. Before long, the police will be enforcing vaccine mandates by forcibly injecting resisters, and citizens will not be allowed to carry guns.
