San Fran Chain Cuts Hours — ‘Off the Charts’ Theft — Blames “Equity Problem”

2

I think like a lot of retailers they’ve been experiencing increasing property crime and theft from their stores. I think the last 6 months from what they say has been sort of – off the charts in terms of how bad it’s been. It’s sad, upsetting, and frustrating…It’s an equity problem.

 

~ Rafael Mandelman, Safeway Supervisor

Safeway Supervisor Rafael Mandelman stop its 24-hour service in San Francisco due to “off the charts” shoplifting and crime in the area.

Safeway told Mandelman that the “police rarely arrest anyone for a property crime, by the time they make it on the scene.”

They decided the store will stay open from 6 AM to 9 PM.

Mandelman said: “I think like a lot of retailers they’ve been experiencing increasing property crime and theft from their stores. I think the last 6 months from what they say has been sort of – off the charts in terms of how bad it’s been. It’s sad, upsetting, and frustrating.”

Who does this hurt? The poor!

EQUITY???

Mr. Mandelman is confused about what the problem is, however.

“It’s an equity problem,” Mandelman said. “There’s a lot of low-income folks, seniors, folks with disability, who rely on that Safeway and other Safeways around the city.”

It’s not equity, it’s the lack of law enforcement and wrong-headed attitudes by the thieves. People need to earn their rewards, not steal them.

Poor senior citizens aren’t the ones stealing the goods.

OTHER STORES ARE GIVING UP AS WELL

Target started closing its stores inside the city limits at 6 PM. The stores outside of San Francisco city limits close at 10 PM. They are closing due to thefts.

Walgreens has closed 17 stores in San Francisco in the last couple of years because of “rampant theft.”

Stores simply can’t afford it.

Upscale stores like Neiman Marcus are also suffering tremendous losses.

San Francisco under terrorist born and raised District Attorney Chesa Boudin isn’t enforcing the law.

At least 50 attorneys in the DA office have left since January, including progressive prosecutor Brooke Jenkins. She thinks the “criminal justice system is racist and needs reform.”

But Jenkins does not like Boudin’s approach and wants him to lose his job.

Jenkins, like so many who vote for the likes of Boudin want to keep their lofty leftist ideals but not live with the consequences.

On the Left, stealing isn’t wrong, but there is a price to be paid for that viewpoint.

  1. What happens when you allow crime like this is that Stores close in high crime areas. The poor then have to travel farther to buy groceries. That cost money. The few mom & pop places that stay in the community have to greatly increase prices to stay open. Who pays – the poor! President Trump was making the poor better off with jobs. Traitor Joe and friends are doing everything they can to make the poor even more dependent on Government. Why? Simple! When the Poor move into the Middle Class and have to pay taxes, the don’t vote Democrat; they vote Republican. This is all about getting America’s poor back on the Liberal Democrat Reservation and back on Government Welfare.

    The Democrat Party was created by Slave Owners, it has always liked controlling people. The Democrats now want to move to the next level – Communism. Modern Communism is just a small Oligarchy who use the Military to keep people in line. (The pre-1860’s South.) The People become 3rd World dirt poor while the Oligarchy lives like Kings. It’s a lot easier to stop the Slave Owners before they take away your guns and get control. The Godless Communist Democrat Liberal Losers already stole one Presidential Election, we can’t allow them to steal anymore elections at any level. The only truly Fraud Free Elections are in person citizens, voting on paper, with Identification, and poll watchers ensuring a chain of custody and a true count. Anything else is questionable.

    • Apparently the state of CA does not believe in property rights which is a main pillar in our legal system- 9/10 of the law. For some reason every video I have seen it is all blacks doing all the stealing. Not surprised since for the past 55 years Democrats have convinced them that every white person on earth owes them something.
