Pre-Christmas Pillaging of San Francisco Stores Continues for Third Day

Pre-Christmas Pillaging of San Francisco Stores Continues for Third Day

Changes coming to the city’s iconic Union Square after earlier flash-mob-robberies.

San Francisco Bay Area recorded its third consecutive day of pillaging by gangs of thieves filmed smashing glass cases at a jewelry store and emptying them as staff screamed in terror.

The latest incident happened at a Sam’s Jewelers store at the Southland Mall in Hayward around 5:30pm PST Sunday evening, and was caught on camera.

Robbers – said to have been part of a gang of around 40 to 50 teens who entered the mall – wielded hammers to smash display cases at Sam’s, before making off with goods. Dramatic footage shot from a nearby store showed shop workers screaming with fear as the disturbing scene unfolded.

Also on Sunday, another gang of looters snatched garments from upmarket yoga clothing brand Lululemon’s San Jose store, KPIX reported.

It’s unknown how much was taken from the jewelry store or the other retailers during the event.

CBS San Francisco spoke with two women who work near Sam’s Jewelers. They and other mall workers said some kids ran into other stores and left with shoes and clothing.

“We saw all the other stores closing. They were panicking, so we were panicking and quickly closed our store and barricaded ourselves,” said one of the women.

“It was very scary,” said one mall worker. “People with no morals, no sense for other people’s safety. I feel helpless. It’s disturbing.”

Police couldn’t immediately say how much jewelry was taken or how much merchandise other stores in the mall lost.

Meanwhile, in response to the previous flash-mob-robberies that I previously reported, San Francisco officials have announced the city will limit car access in Union Square.

During a joint press conference with San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott Saturday, Mayor London Breed said changes would be made.

“We’re going to be making some changes to Union Square and how cars are able to access,” Breed said. “There will be limited access in terms of when you come to this area.”

No further details on exactly what the restrictions are or when they will be in place have yet been released.

Chief Scott added that there will be an increased police presence in Union Square “for the foreseeable future.”

And for the third day in a row I can say I don’t have any sympathy for any business that choses to remain in the San Francisco area. They elected the officials that are causing this trouble. They can just deal with it. And that’s the truth.

The barbarians are at the gate.
A civilization which took a thousand years to develop will be trashed in a matter of months, maybe weeks, if our idiot elected officials don’t respond forcefully.

    How is the average citizen supposed to know that electing a District Attorney who was named after Che Guevara, and is the son of two convicted domestic terrorists/murderers who were once on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, might have any downside?

      Important question: does the DA have a blue or red, D or R, next to his name? That’s how I judge candidates and whether they’d be good for my city.

        An R? Dude, I don’t think Oakland has had a Republican mayor since 1949. As far as San Francisco goes (And I hope it goes far, far away) when Gavin Newsom first ran for mayor back in 2003 he was the stodgy conservative. There is never a candidate with an R next to his/her/Xi’s name. There’s the D and an S for socialist.

        I forget who the socialist was who ran against Newsom but a buddy of mine was a writer/editor for the San Francisco Examiner at the time. To go off on a short tangent he was my room mate in college, the best man at my wedding, and a good hog hunting buddy. Which oddly didn’t make him nearly the odd man out in the news room as there, among all the other gay guys, was a guy who grew up in Marin county and liked hunting hogs.

        So the gay guy normalized my friend’s hunting habit.

        Anyhow, he was covering the SF mayor race back then and the socialist running against Newsom was some stinking greaseball. By that I mean he probably hadn’t taken a shower in 10 years and according to my buddy who had to cover the race he had god awful B.O. Eye watering B.O.

        But the MFM dubbed the guy the “sexy socialist.” And the SF electorate worked itself into a frenzy wondering if Newsom was too conservative. You see he had operated a for-profit business in SF, a wine bar. Apparently it had been successful (although if I had the Getty fortune backing me I could operate a cat turd confection shop and never close my doors). That was a demerit in Bay Area politics.

        This Gavin Newsom. The same one you see today. Was the conservative when he ran for mayor almost 20 years ago.

    They will write a nice letter.
    Red Red Whine.

And how many of these people afraid for their lives and property voted for the Democrats who are literally trashing their community–if you voted for it, you own it

A tough mayor, ala Richard Daley, could fix this. But, that won’t happen.

If you check out the Active Self Protection (ASP) channel on youtube today, they’ve got a stellar video of a carload of these low lifes robbing a family visiting from Puerto Rico.

This is well thought and organized activity.

A contractor working on our house used to do work in Oakland, they would do the same thing to their jobsites and come running through as a mob and steal any tool they could off their trucks that wasn’t locked down.

These days, that’s all the staff can do, ‘scream in terror’. But these marauding children could be punched, could be hit with the very same hammers they took to the mall. They could be taught a lesson.

An hour later, they’d be let go with their reparation loot, and the ‘staff’ would be under investigation. I guess that’s their problem, choosing to live there and voting as they do. Good luck to you all out there, you got the government you deserve.

The bag limit is legal and redistributive.

It’s a damn good thing carry permits are impossible to get in San Francisco. Honest citizens might be committing rampant self-defense.

Maybe the city will impose unrealized capitol gains taxes on the stores since the city won’t be collecting sales tax on pillaged items.

This is not mere looting. This is chevauchee. Smash-and-grab raiding.

    They do it because they know, I’m like some places in the US, they can do it with impunity. There are still some places in the US where they would probably be met if nothing else with baseball bats, clubs, or the business end of a 12 gauge shotgun.

    It’s a real shame the California law is such that nobody can defend anything that belongs to them anymore.

    As for those of you above who take this imperious attitude toward the business owners, and think that they deserve it for staying there, not all of them are multinational corporations. A lot of those are multi generational family businesses and it would be very hard for them to simply pull up stakes and go elsewhere. Much of the repeat business is from the same sets of generations to bought from them before. I for one do have some sympathy for them because I don’t think the people in those families voted for what they’re getting.

      They also know that if they try to pull that stuff in some neighborhoods, some well-dressed gentlemen will visit their close relatives in the middle of the night and inform them just exactly what will happen if the loot is not all returned, with an apology.

      The sheep are disarmed. There are no sheepdogs to guard the flock against the wolves. The only sheepdogs left show up after the carnage is over, draw chalk lines around the dead sheep, and tut quietly under their breath.

It’s just Black Monday, Black Tuesday, Black Wednesday, Black Thursday, Black Friday, Black Saturday and Black Sunday Holiday shopping… all year long. For the Left….. Crime Pays.

What would really be nice is if these animals would converge on DC, and tear through Congress and the White House.

Escape California if you can. It has passed the point of no return and can not be fixed prior to rock bottom. It will get worse from here.

Strong words are not going to stop this, and no Leftist politician will do anything more than strong words.
So live with it, you as said above voted for it.

The enemy intends to destroy the economy. This is only one dimension of that agenda. This could be stopped, but I doubt that government or the corporations will do it. And the citizens will be punished if they do it…unless they do it on a very large scale. This will get worse until it is stopped (not till it stops). When will the people of California “grow a pair” as as a friendly DI used to say?

    The left can organize in Facebook, Twitter, email, Google Groups, and pretty much anywhere. The right can organize only at face-to-face meetings, usually hosted by one or more covert Feds.

Those Amish teenagers again.

Imagine that you are a member of this gang of thieves/robbers and the response by the government is to “…limit car access in Union Square.” After you stop laughing, you will be heading out for more loot.

It may be getting some of the brain dead liberals upset also.

One of my best friends in SF was burglarized and robbed last week while sleeping.

Two days later she saw three men peering into her backyard. She called SFPD sobbing. They did not come.

“I’ve never lived someplace where the government just doesn’t care about you” she said.

She posts more and it’s a fun read if for no other reason than to laugh at how stupid the liberals really are.

Solution…The Thousand Dollar Store. Nothing is less than a Thousand Dollars. But you can use a Thousand Dollars Off Cupon available at the cash register for every item. This turns all the looters in to Felons.

I wonder how many of these retailers will ride out this holiday season, and then close the doors permanently. I’m not just referring to the nordstroms and the trendy brands. I’m talking about long term family owned businesses that had been there for decades. I would not blame them at all and actually hope that it does happen. The sooner SF becomes the next Detroit or Flint MI or Gary IN the faster they will either straighten themselves out, or just continue to die like those cities have. It’s their choice.

    Interesting. We know the globalists want to shut down the middle class and shutting down mom and pop businesses has been one way to do it. We see how they’ve forced us over into using Amazon/online, etc. While these are low life crooks doing the mob smash and grabs, it certainly helps the globalists/leftists with their goal.

      I’m not forced to use Amazon at all. Are use Amazon by choice. Why? Because they have what I need, and the local retailers do not in most cases. I do shop other online outfits, but when you live in an area that is at best a small city, lots of things are hard to find. My priority is the local retailer 1st second is the local branch of a national retailer and third is mail order or online order. I tried to give business to the locals, but if they don’t have what I need or want i.e. big sizes of clothing, electronic goods that I want, then I go elsewhere. Love her more Hayden Bezos’s company has filled a need. Sears roebuck had all the infrastructure in place to be Amazon, it was during the right in the face. They just didn’t recognize it. Eventually, Amazon will close up, and the next big thing will take over from there.

        Yeah, same here with a slight caveat. I look to make purchases with local small businesses and will do so unless their prices are way out from what I can get from Amazon. For rural areas the convenience of Amazon Prime simply can’t be overstated, especially with rising fuel prices.

        It’s a 25 minute trip to the town limits then another 15-2o minutes to Wal-Mart which is on the opposite end of the town. So if Amazon has what I want at a better price plus delivery I save 90 minutes drive time, fuel costs and a better price. That’s hard to match.

        I price compare online then ask the local small retailers to match price or at least move down on their higher price. If the do, I am buying from them, if they refuse then they lose future sales to Amazon.

The police, when part of a functional criminal justice system, can be effective in maintaining order in an orderly culture. California is now moving into an unstable phase where the police cannot be effective even if they want to be. California is moving into anarchy where order will be reestablished by the military. The troops will wear blue helmets and Mandarin will be their native language. California will then be the base to take down the rest of the states just a SF is the base to take down California. The sooner one stops a forest fire, the lower the cost and the less the damage. Will the people of California put an end to this agenda now, later, or never? Watch for the blue helmets to arrive soon.

California, except for San Diego, is becoming a one party ungovernable state. We have friends in LA who state very clearly that the state today is not the state that they grew up in,. The exodus of Musk and Ben Shapiro says volumes as to what the next generation of entrepreneurs is doing

Ahhh, holiday shop-lifting at it’s best–all in the name of George Floyd and BLM, of course. Kinda gives a new meaning to Black Friday.

The thieves have a pretty good supply chain. Maybe Biden will give them medals.

    There are many in California that loudly denounced Kyle Rittenhouse for shooting to protect himself from injury or death.
    How much louder will the denouncements be for those who would shoot to protect property?

RICO. Learn it, Love it, investigate and charge these animals with it.
