Video footage published on NBC Los Angeles shows several thieves at a popular retail store in Riverside County. A witness says the shoplifters calmly walked inside and took anything they wanted, and one of them even used a special cutter to remove security leashes on expensive purses. The video was shot by Lindsey Rodriguez who just noticed a man casually walking out of a Marshalls in Hemet, with his arms full of clothing for which he apparently did not pay.
“I worked every single day, 40 hours a week during this whole pandemic, and then I go in and see that, and it’s disheartening. It’s not Hemet,” she says. “People shopping there were just kind of standing there watching. The only thing I figured I could do was to get their identities and their license plates and give them to somebody who will do something with them,” said the woman adding that after she finished the video, she called to 911.
Police came but did not do anything that could help to chase and catch the thieves, noting that no one from Marshalls has reported the crimes so far.
“What is this teaching our children? I don’t want my kids to see that kind of stuff when we are going shopping at 7 o’clock at night,” the Rodriguez added.
The situation has obviously worsened with the start of the active protests organized by the BLM movement after the death of George Floyd. The crime and punishment issue turned out into a racism agenda and opened the doors to lots of “offended” people to “protest” and show that they “disrespect the officers” – certainly, with no way better than to commit crimes, as if those crimes were directed against policemen and not against other citizens. With the uncontrolled flow of migrants into the country, the scale of crimes showed a sharp spike – it got even more massive and cruel.
This summer, in the US state of San Francisco, an African-American teenager cycled into a Walgreens store and collected a large number of goods in a garbage bag, after which he left the store without paying for them. Shoppers and a security guard looked at the criminal in shock, but no one tried to stop him. Instead, the witnesses filmed what was happening in the video.
And here are the comments you see under such outrageous behaviour:
He is stealing for survival. Walgreens will survive. No stealing is not right but neither is gentrification and putting people out of their neighborhoods which has caused a lot of homelessness in the Bay Area .— Thug Princess 👑 (@DLuxxx) June 16, 2021
Non-violent crime, he stole stuff that wasn’t valuable enough to be under lock and key, and he didn’t even use fossil fuels. SO what?

Looks very much the same as the rules introduced by US Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-Massachusetts) in her People’s Justice Guarantee in 2019, when she claimed that the criminal legal system of the US is racist and xenophobic, so she proposed to make justice “less strict and more humane, equal for all” by abolishing the responsibility for the theft of goods that were “vital”.
And one more case, in Chicago:
This new reality turned the whole situation upside-down and now, American citizens should think twice, whom they are really afraid of – policemen who can ‘kill them as they did with Floyd’ or multiple criminals going here and there freely and able to do whatever comes to their minds with not a single chance to be stopped – neither by other citizens afraid of consequences of such confrontation nor by policemen afraid of being blamed of discrimination and abuse of power.
It’s what the people of Chicago wanted, you want to defund the police, you asked for no more foot pursuits. So now you are seeing the aftermath of all that. Unfortunately this is and will continue to be the outcome— Herbskee-boo👻 (@HerbskeeTv) September 28, 2021
