80 Looters in Ski Masks Pillage San Francisco Area Nordstrom

80 Looters in Ski Masks Pillage San Francisco Area Nordstrom

The sacking of San Francisco continues.

San Francisco’s descent from the “Paris of the West” to a third-world hellscape has undoubtedly escalated quickly.

This weekend, 80 looters pillaged a Nordstrom store in a San Francisco area suburb, injuring at least three employees in a raid that lasted less than a minute.

The large group,wearing ski masks and carrying crowbars, rushed the Walnut Creek store, stole an undetermined amount of merchandise and fled in their vehicles.

During the theft, two Nordstrom workers were punched and kicked, while another was sprayed with pepper spray. All three individuals were treated for their injuries on scene.

Walnut Creek police have arrested three people in connection to the incident and they are facing various charges including robbery, conspiracy, burglary, possession of stolen property and a weapons charge.

The brazen robbery comes as Bay Area businesses reduce their hours due to a spate of brazen shoplifting incidents. Locals are also slamming woke San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin over his failure to prosecute thefts.

Police have arrested three suspects. It appears a series of other lootings took place in Bay Area high-end stores the same evening.

Authorities are questioning those who were arrested to determine the identities of the other suspects, [Lt. Ryan Hibbs at the Walnut Creek Police Department] said.

The manager of a nearby restaurant told CNN affiliate KPIX that the looters were wearing masks and carried what appeared to be crowbars.

“There was a mob of people,” Brett Barrett said. “The police were flying in. It was like a scene out of a movie. It was insane. … It was a scary scene for a moment.”
Police have not yet estimated a dollar amount for the stolen items, Hibbs said.

The incident followed a series of similar lootings Friday night in Union Square and surrounding areas in San Francisco, including at a Louis Vuitton store, a Burberry store, a jewelry store, a Bloomingdale’s, a Walgreens, cannibis dispensaries and even an eyeglass shop, Police Chief Bill Scott said at a news conference Saturday.

Area police are preparing for more of these incidents.

The police department “is actively monitoring intelligence that indicates the group of thieves who stole from the Broadway Plaza Nordstrom last night are considering similar activity later today,” Walnut Creek police said in a community advisory posted about 3:30 p.m. Sunday on social media.

“This has not been confirmed but, out of an abundance of caution, we’re alerting businesses and residents to be prepared,” police said in the advisory.

The department is calling in additional officers and reserves and some stores may consider closing early or taking other precautions, police said.

Meanwhile, embattled District Attorney Chesa Boudin is facing a recall because of his lack of enforcement of existing laws. His response to the situation seemed to deflect the blame from the thieves.

“We are exploring every single possible criminal charge related to the conduct. We will use every tool in our tool belt,” Boudin said.

…And while critics say Boudin is soft on crimes like shoplifting, he says in order to see real change, the incentive has to be removed.

“We need to go to the root of the problem. We need to take apart the fencing operations that make it profitable. And we need to make sure that we’re not limiting ourselves to what happens alone in San Francisco,” Boudin said.

Boudin’s oblivious response is in keeping with how he has handled a previous shoplifting case.

San Francisco’s ‘woke’ District Attorney Chesa Boudin has finally charged a ‘prolific’ female shoplifter, 41, who stole $40,000 in merchandise from the same Target in 120 incidents over a one-year period.

Aziza Graves was arrested Tuesday for her alleged shoplifting spree about two weeks after voters forced Boudin into a recall election, with a petition yielding 83,000 signatures – far above the 51,000 required by the city.

The push to hold Graves responsible only came after Target demanded that Boudin launch an investigation, which revealed that the store, at the Stonestown Galleria shopping mall, was hit by the same person more than 100 times between October 2020 and November 2021.

It is pretty clear that with Boudin in charge, the sacking of San Francisco will continue.

Whatever. Any major businesses that choose to remain in San Francisco and environs gets to sympathy from me. They know full well what the laws are and what happens to shoplifters. So any that are stupid enough to remain get exactly what they deserve.

    It’s hard to be sympathetic. The residents who might be impacted likely have highly appreciated home values and can certainly sell and move elsewhere in CA should they choose. Others are skilled and well compensated tech employees who could also depart. Those in the economic middle-class and lower class have less options financially but also much less holding them in the area so they could certainly depart as well.

    You get what you vote for, California.

      True but this event shows that other people are also impacted by events that others voted for. This event demonstrates that metro areas (especially) and states are complex connected systems and not isolated elements. Would one say “We are OK as it is the other end of the boat that is sinking?” The base of crime in Minneapolis is moving into the suburbs as it is here. It seems to be a pattern based on an agenda. Corrupt central city elections have an impact beyond the central city borders. We are just in different ends of the sinking boat.

    These CEOs have tried to buy protection thinking appeasement works. These CEOs have supported this and now they are targeted. Generally, big company CEOs bully employees and appease outsiders.

    I don’t care. A well deserved Flash Loot. They can burn these leftist cities to the ground and I no longer care.

    They can close their doors and only allow registered shoppers with pre-approved credit cards to come in by appointment until normalcy returns. They know who their regular customers are and can call them to explain the new procedures and why. Every business can do the same. Most will appreciate the special treatment.

The people of the bay area deserve the government they elect. This is EXACTLY what you asked for when you elected that Soros funded DA.,

Just keep your Marxist asses out of Texas.

I had no idea Nordstrom was a grocery store. The left claims these people only do this to feed themselves and their families. Do any of you libs have recipes for anything found in Nordstroms? If not you have to admit this is run-of-the-mill theft.

    It’s time to shop for Christmas. Are you going to deny the little ones their Christmas gifts. Don’t be a Scrooge.

      Meanwhile, real people have to plan for Bidenflation for three more years, at least. Just this week, I was looking at the price of meat, any meat–chicken, beef, pork, and astounded. I picked up a pack of pork ribs that should have cost less than $4 but were selling on sale for $8 and asked the butcher dude when he thought prices on meat would go down. His answer, and I kid you not, was “when we get a new president.”

      He’s not wrong. FJB

        The way this story describes the incident and what occurred at the Walnut Creek Nordstrom’s store essentially has me thinking the retail marketing term “Black Friday” could re-emerge as a homonym and give a whole new meaning to holiday “shop lifting.”

        Clever how that works.

      I’m still waiting for the package of good quality spice drops Fuzzy promised me.

[W]e’re alerting businesses and residents to be prepared,” police said in the advisory.

“Prepared”? Perhaps they could be a bit more specific.

In third world authoritarian banana republics the tyrannical regime in power encourages and helps organize this kind of behavior if it is directed at its political enemies or helps advance its current political propaganda campaign.

    Ben Kent in reply to JHogan. | November 22, 2021 at 2:31 pm

    How is this any different ?

    Only difference is that people living under 3rd world authoritarian regimes know the government is corrupt and the people can take steps to mitigate the risk (like leave the country or revolt).

    In the US – please are too dumb or brainwashed to know the real state-of-affairs.

Black Thieves Matter

    Sure do.

    Especially if you own retail inventory.

      Ghostrider in reply to pfg. | November 23, 2021 at 4:06 am

      No doubt about it. And, people foolishly wonder why Mall shopping participation rates are down significantly while online sales and home delivery transactions are increasing.

      What’s next? When there are no retail stores left standing to rob, will the BLM mob-rob artists turn their attention to Amazon Prime and UPS delivery trucks?

      Honest question. Not trying to be funny or satirical either..

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to pfg. | November 23, 2021 at 11:12 am

      And how many of those retail inventory owners long for the days of having signs in their windows red, “white only”? I know that’s brutal, but there it is.

    Charles Murray, Facing Reality (2021 book), “Two known facts, long since documented beyond reasonable doubt, need to be brought into the open and incorporated into the way we think about public policy: American whites, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians have different violent crime rates and different means and distributions of cognitive ability. The allegations of racism in policing, college admissions, segregation in housing, and hiring and promotions in the workplace ignore the ways in which the problems that prompt the allegations of systemic racism are driven by these two realities.”

Screw them. They’re run by utterly committed liberals and the bulk of their stores are in leftist enclaves. They’re getting exactly what they’ve supported.

For those unfamiliar with the area, Walnut Creek is NOT a dump. It’s a tony Suburban neighborhood located in what’s known as the ‘East Bay’ area of San Francisco, due east of Oakland.

If the flash mob thieves will hit that mall, they’ll hit any mall.

    danvillemom in reply to TargaGTS. | November 22, 2021 at 7:36 pm

    As you can see from my name I live part time a few miles from the Nordstrom store. My neighbors are afraid to go to the mall now. Nordstrom had actually paid the police to post an officer in the store full time for security.

    dunce1239 in reply to TargaGTS. | November 22, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    Obviously the looters are from out of town.

This also happened at Southland Mall in Hayward and Santana Row in San Jose a day later.

These looters have to shop in Walnut Creek now since there is little left to steal in SF proper. Once crime takes establishes a base in the central city, it moves out into the suburbs. This is the second phase of this dimension of the agenda. It is all planned. The only option for the good people is to stop running and start fighting back. Or, surrender.

    Or to elect law and order candidates instead of Soros-backed leftist lunatics who are pro-crime, pro-criminal. For example, this mass-looting would not happen in Free Florida, period. The lawless are becoming more drawn to leftist-run areas, and for that, law-abiding citizens everywhere are truly grateful.

      First, of course, you need people with the courage to put their lives on the line by publicly opposing the lunatics – and their thug supporters.

      I don’t believe some of these Soros ‘elected’ lunatics were elected – except by voting machine manipulation. Ask around: you’ll find no one who even knew who they were at election time, let alone anyone who voted for them.

        The Friendly Grizzly in reply to | November 23, 2021 at 11:17 am

        I believe they were elected honestly. Are used to live in the Bay Area, and despite the fact the Walnut Creek may be a little bit conservative, the whole area is filled with yuppies that live in a world of their own. A lot of high-tech money there, very few of those people ever lived in the real world. You haven’t lived until you’ve had a conversation with a typical Mercedes mom from a place like Moraga or Orinda. They’re in a world of their own, and they don’t even know the rest of the world exists away from their country clubs and their health spas.

      Subotai Bahadur in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 22, 2021 at 7:08 pm

      Such is not possible in a polity totally controlled by the Left and where there is literally no integrity in the voting and vote counting process. It just ain’t gonna happen. The only means of resistance that has a chance [and it is a small one given that the kinetic means of State power will actively go to war on any resistance] is a reincarnation of an organization that was inaugurated on June 9, 1851 in San Francisco, dissolved 3 months later having accomplished its aims, and reorganized May 14, 1856. It/they were called the Committee of Vigilance, and when the local law enforcement refused to protect the citizens from the criminals they sponsored, the Committee stepped in. I am going to try to get a link to a copy of their seal here:

      They publicly tried and hanged 8 criminals, mostly related to known criminal gangs and caught in the act, and forced a number of government officials to resign and leave hastily. As much as they were/are denigrated for being mass killers without evidence, in their trials of accused criminals, aside from those listed above they had fourteen they deported to Australia [there was a large Aussie criminal gang in SF]; fourteen were informally ordered to leave California; fifteen were handed over to public authorities in other jurisdictions where they were wanted; and forty-one were acquitted and discharged.

      Interestingly enough, one of the leaders of the 1856 incarnation became far more famous during the Civil War, one William Tecumseh Sherman.

      Mind you, I am not presenting this as a cure-all, It would likely be a trigger to a civil war. But when the rule and administration of law, and the political process are no longer viable, Clausewitz rears his ugly head. THAT is what the Leftist attack on law and the Constitution is doing.

      Is this before or after Dominion gets hold of the votes?

      The Conch Republic is rising again!

      “Or to elect law and order candidates”

      I live in CA … haven’t seen a law and order candidate for decades …

Redistributive change.

“We need to go to the root of the problem. We need to take apart the fencing operations that make it profitable. And we need to make sure that we’re not limiting ourselves to what happens alone in San Francisco,” Boudin said.”

You need to stop rearranging deck chairs in the next county and arrest the shoplifters directly, you jackass.

My sympathy for Nordstroms in particular is strongly tempered by their history of promoting leftist politics and “woke” culture. They, more than most others, fully deserve to reap what they sowed.

    TargaGTS in reply to henrybowman. | November 22, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    They won’t have to look far to dismantle their fencing operation. It’s literally just across the San Francisco bay. If the local police are to be believed – and I have no reason to think they’re lying – most of this merchandise will likely be on sale at eBay and other eRetailers by Black Friday. From what they’re describing, these aren’t spur of the moment robberies. They’re coordinated and pretty sophisticated.

    Arminius in reply to henrybowman. | November 23, 2021 at 8:43 am

    I love it when leftists go the “root cause” route. Then you end up with gems like, “Why are we locking up so many people when crime rates are so low?” I forget who said that; lots of leftists eventually. I believe it was that bloated “public intellectual” and deep thinker Joy Reid, pushing back against the right-wing “lie” that inflation was harming the middle class by observing that even though prices were higher, “[P]eople are spending more.”


    So now Chesa Boudin is claiming that it’s those fencing operations that are making all this shoplifting profitable. Not his policy of his and other Soros-DAs of decriminalizing crime, which has eliminated the “cost” of shoplifting (time in jail, fines, etc.) and made these fencing operations hugely profitable.

    Marxists always think profits are the “root cause” of all evil.

    I’ve got to admit that I do feel for some of the people who remain in Kali. I still have family there, and I look forward to visiting them over Christmas. But in some ways I’m not. Because some members of my family will buy this Marxist “root cause’ nonsense.

    Not all of them. Some see through it but for a variety of reasons just can’t see a way out just yet. I mean, if you have built a successful legal practice over decades and are in your late 50s/early 60s but can’t for a variety of reasons retire just yet, do you pull up stakes, leave all your clients behind, and start over somewhere else? Some types of work you can’t do remotely.

    So I’ll just smile and shut up. Drinking heavily would normally be my go-to option. But ever since I retired from the Navy I don’t really do that anymore. So I believe it’s contraindicated by the fact that a) I’m out of practice and b) being out of practice I’m far more likely to mouth off than shut up.

    I’m not looking forward to making it through Christmas sober.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to | November 23, 2021 at 11:21 am

    I am not a woman. I am a man, not given to fashion. At all. With that foundation having been laid I asked the following question: why would anybody want to carry a multi thousand dollar bag in which to carry one’s possessions? I just don’t understand the appeal of a multi thousand dollar purse I don’t understand it any better than $12,000 for a device on my wrist to tell me what time it is.

I really need to fix that headline for you:

80 Looters in Ski Masks Pillage San Francisco Area Nordstrom

Small group of oppressed youths protest against White Privilege

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Joey Williams. | November 23, 2021 at 11:25 am

    Why do that? We already have publications like the New York Times, the Chicago tribune, the Los Angeles times, the San Francisco examiner, and the Bore-egoinian to give us headlines like that.

I expect some copycat crimes. Other cities beware and prepare. Out of 80, they only got 3? There is a ton of video on this.
