Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, Diane Feinstein, Adam Schiff, and Eric Swalwell all have one thing in common. Californians voted them into office. So you can tell they are good at making important decisions. Their poor decision-making is even more pronounced in their local leadership. Californian legislators lessened the punishment for theft to a misdemeanor for anything less than $950. In San Fransico, the theft rate is so bad that retailers are closing up early. Target is shutting its doors by 6 pm.
“Normal store hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. They’re cutting back to 6 p.m. because, the company claims, “for more than a month, we’ve been experiencing a significant and alarming rise in theft and security incidents at our San Francisco stores.”
Only a month? Walgreens has closed 17 stores in San Francisco since 2016 because it didn’t pay to keep them open with so many locals taking the five-finger discount. Target’s new policy raises the ominous possibility that the problem is getting worse, which would make sense. With the pandemic all but over in the highly vaccinated Bay Area, more thieves may be out and about lately.”
“A state law that passed several years ago made it a misdemeanor to steal less than $950 worth of goods, a wrist-slap that’s encouraged, repeat offenders. Go figure that three California cities (San Fran, L.A., and Sacramento) are among the top 10 in the United States for organized retail crime. Not all of the theft is organized, of course — sometimes it’s random homeless people or addicts acting alone — but a surprising amount is being driven by rings selling the stolen merchandise on the black market.
“Target isn’t the only store in San Francisco to make changes because of the continuous shoplifting. After 10 p.m. the 7-Eleven on Drumm St. in the Financial District only does business through a metal door. But first, you have to ring the bell to let them know you’re outside.”

This is just a trash State in general and they have no one to blame but themselves. It seems a few Californians have wised up and are looking to recall Gavin, but with their track record, they will probably just vote for another Dem perpetuating their issues.
