CEOs are asking Congress to clean up the mess they helped make. Across the country criminals are looting stores, especially in cities that defunded the police. So there are fewer police officers to stop them. These retailers are getting upset about all of the money they are losing and big names like Target and Nordstrom are demanding something be done. But many of the same retailers who are throwing a fit also caused this by supporting BLM last year and their defund the police movement.
“Retail CEOs are calling on Congress for help amid the smash-and-grab lootings that are leaving them grappling with hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost or stolen merchandise. Some of those same companies, however, supported organizations last year that have called to defund or overhaul policing in the United States.
“Many corporate leaders jumped on the woke bandwagon and wrote big checks to organizations that still continue to advocate to defund the police. They did not think of anything beyond not being labeled a racist,” Sean Pritchard, president of the San Jose Police Officers Association, told Fox News Digital Tuesday.
Nearly two dozen CEOs signed the letter to Congress asking for support as theft crimes rage, including the chiefs of Target, Nordstrom, Levi Strauss, Ulta Beauty, and Home Depot.
“Leading retailers are concerned about the growing impact organized retail crime is having on the communities we proudly serve,” the letter, which was sent by the Retail Industry Leaders Association to Congress last week reads…”
“Fox News examined public support pledged by the companies last year during nationwide protests and riots following the death of George Floyd and found many of the companies supported left-wing groups such as Black Lives Matter, the Equal Justice Initiative, and the ACLU, which advocate to defund or reform policing in the U.S.”
This is Karma coming back to bite them. These retailers crapped on the police and helped to get them defunded and now criminals are going wild. What did they expect? What’s Congress going to do? Are they looking for Congress to give the police better funding? Or maybe change the laws that they need police to help them enforce? Looks like they are getting what they deserve.
