Some smash and grab thefts are organized on social media, people show up as a flash mob and steal merchandise that is then sold online. In Los Angeles, 14 smash and grab suspects were arrested, but were then released without any consequences. London Breed, the Mayor of San Francisco, has vowed the city will become more aggressive in their policies to stop crime, but only a year ago she supported defunding the police and tried to remove $120 million from the police budget.
Leo Terrell, a civil rights attorney made the point that while police are trying to apprehend the criminals, District Attorneys refuse to prosecute criminals. Terrell said that he believes that police departments are being set up and it will only take one disputed police shooting or one disputed arrest, and “all hell is going to break loose.” He said that the liberal prosecutors will pursue charges against the police. He identified the problem as Soros-backed Democrat prosecutors that are pushing a radical agenda.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed retailers for the rise in mass looting in her city instead of the refusal to prosecute criminals. She said that stores should hire security guards. However, if shopkeepers and security guards use force to stop the thefts, they will face massive backlash.
Fresno County District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp, a critic of leftist prosecutors, identified Democrats Kamala Harris, Jerry Brown, Governor Gavin Newsom, AG Robe Bonta and Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon as the worst criminal gang in California as they support and continue with policies that create chaos.
People in San Francisco are leaving their cars with the doors and trunks open after removing valuables to avoid having the windows broken out.
