Videos Show Beverly Hills Becoming a Ghost Town During Los Angeles Crime Wave

“RIP Beverly Hills”

Luxury stores are leaving America’s most well-known zip code because of the smash-and-grab gang robberies in Los Angeles.

Leslie has tried to keep up with all the robberies:

A few left because of bankruptcy, but most closed because of the crime wave.

Cody also mourned the loss of small businesses:

Videos posted on Tik ToK by self-proclaimed “Nostalgic Angelino” cody90210 show off more than a dozen Beverly Hills retailers and restaurants now completely shuttered and not replaced by new businesses, leaving their empty storefronts as a shell of their former glory.

Some of the businesses include luxury staples like Barneys New York and Escada, with the once-popular brands having filed for bankruptcy in recent years.

Other big name stores now lying empty include former locations for Chanel, Rite Aid, Barnes and Noble, Niketown, and restaurants like Chipotle and Starbucks.

Cops blamed organized crime and zero cash bail for the rise in crime, especially these robberies.

The comments came after 50 people stole items totaling $300,000 from a Los Angeles mall. The people also used bear spray to get past security guards:

“There’s no doubt that there’s a lot of … criminal organizations behind this. Some of it involves gang members; some of it involves people that are what you would identify as professional retail thieves,” Deputy Los Angeles Police Chief Alan Hamilton told NBC News on Sunday. “It runs the gamut, and there is a black market for purchasing these items, unfortunately. … The same people [are] then turning around and committing these acts again, over and over again.”

Thirty to 50 people converged on the Nordstrom store at the Westfield Topanga Mall in Woodland Hills, police said. They made off with hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of luxury handbags and high-end clothing, police said. The call of “numerous persons shoplifting,” police said, came shortly after 4 p.m.

“More than 30 people entered the store at once and within minutes grabbed more than $300,000 worth of merchandise from displays near the entrance. The suspects ran from the store, ransacking shelves and display tables in the process,” police said in a statement Monday. “The suspects were wearing ski masks and fled with high-end handbags, clothing, and other easily re-sellable items. One suspect, upon entering the store, sprayed bear spray on the face and body of the security guard at the entrance to the store.”

Why are there never any white mobs?

After voting in one progressive policy after another in what had been one of the most affluent regions in the world and then complaining that you can’t afford to live there anymore, that crime has become completely out of control, and then hearing people visiting from third world nations complain about how bad things are there. Priceless.

Government – Covid-Lockdowns- Bankruptcy
Government- defund the police- crime- Bankruptcy

There seems to be no exit ramp for Ca..

Crime is the new black entitlement.

    You left out the most expensive one so far, high speed rail to no where

      Well, it doesn’t go no where, it will (someday, maybe) go from Modesto to Bakersfield. I imagine that they will raise millions of dollars in fares from the itinerant farm workers who will ride it.
      Sarcasm aside, this train is the biggest boondoggle in Calizuela’s history, which is saying a lot.

      My vote would be for the cargo rail from outside California to straight into the looters’ vehicles, which is something that seems to have fallen off the news completely since about a year ago. It must not be an open problem anymore. Like “young superspy” Jack Teixeira,

    Look at the stats, they have felt entitled all along. I am starting to look at slavery in a different light, low IQ makes many people like children, who are not capable of making good decisions.

One suspect, upon entering the store, sprayed bear spray on the face and body of the security guard at the entrance to the store.
As we have been reliably informed, this can be considered (because it was used aggressively, instead of defensively) assault with a deadly weapon, since it incapacitates you and the assaulter can then harm you. Of course, no one in California could get away with it, but a gunshot in response to the bear spray might seriously disrupt that riot.

    A security guard without a gun is a speed bump at best.

    henrybowman in reply to GWB. | September 6, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    I agree, but that would require a second security guard.
    Those days are probably coming, anyway.
    14th Street Liquors in Washington DC had two security guards, and that was 50 years ago.

    Seeing perps tagged and bagged might serve as a deterrent for some people and it would definitely deter the perp.

I’m afraid California and other Marxist strongholds are like alcoholics who can’t stop until they hit bottom.

Unfortunately, they are unconstitutional enabled by the federal government until we all get dragged under.

When the Deputy Police Chief said “black market” surely he meant to say “market of color.” I wonder how many lefties were triggered by that “literal violence.”

My global observation of the term “tolerance” means “I want to be able to get away with my “deviance from normal.”” THIS is what they vote for. Then, every other deviant comes in and ruins it. Look at SF and Portland. Look at the parts of those towns which are currently the worst, and then look back to what they were known for 20 years ago. Hollywood is deviance central, and those who drive the politics in that town want to have their hedonism unchecked. So those they support, because they are willing to look the other way, also look the other way for the others as well. I am not saying that homosexuals deliberately ruined those towns, but they sure held the door wide open for it to happen, AND, they will continue to hold the door open because they simply cannot see a connection between what they asked for and what they continue to get. Some old hippies in Portland wanted to be able to buy weed so that they could live in the 60’s forever. And now the town is knee deep in fent addicts. Who, I ask, who could have seen that coming, again?

The level of cognitive dissonance on display in these blue enclaves is pronounced. Maybe things will change once these residents doing the complaining realize they are the voters who allowed this state of affairs. To paraphrase H. l. Mencken, the voters in these blue enclaves supporters these policies and the politicians espousing them so they ‘deserve to get it good and hard’.

Mexican cartels are behind a lot of this. I wonder what the price of a Gucci handbag is in Mexico City.

“Flaming Saddles”? They didn’t want to run into issues by naming the bar (?) Blazing Saddles?

At least one of the clips was recorded in a mall… malls have been in their death throes for quite some time now, with smaller ones completely dead and even larger, more prestigious ones having trouble with their vacancy rate.

As for individual shops on Main Street, small town America has seen empty storefronts for years, the local downtown stores being supplanted by the malls, which in turn have had karma visited upon them thanks to Amazon and the internet.

I don’t know what’s next, but if it takes society in the direction of less materialism and/or consumerism, we’d be better off in the long run.

    henrybowman in reply to nordic prince. | September 6, 2023 at 5:23 pm

    I thought “Flaming Saddles” was just the last scene of “Blazing Saddles,” when Dom deLuise and his Nancyboys were Doin’ The French Mistake.

    “Blazing Saddles” would infringe on the movie’s trademark – or maybe not since it’s not competing with the movie, but winning that in court would probably cost more than licensing the trademark, which would cost more than a bar can afford.

Even if they police catch them the DA will let them out Scott free.
The once great state of Leftifornia

I can’t wait to see Pretty Woman 2.

Drug addicted looter who is part of organized crime spree falls in love with billionaire leftist political fixer

Sad ending. She ODs in his mansion and he uses his connections to make the DA look the other way.

im more interested in what type of desperate person would take a job as an unarmed security guard in Cali or any big city when anything you do would get you arrested.

There’s a few things wrong with this report. Beverly Grove isn’t in Beverly Hills for example, and Beverly Hills is a separate city from Los Angeles with its own police force.

Basically, Beverly Hills is one of those cities that liberals think is conservative and conservatives think are liberal and they’re both right in some ways. This entire area has been hit by a downturn and increase in crime, however the BHPD has done a good job keeping it out of the city limits for the most part. You generally won’t find homeless tents in Beverly Hills the way you do in Los Angeles. There are closed stores but I think that is more due to economics – lower foot traffic during the pandemic. Chipotle has standardized pricing, so putting one in the most expensive part of the city was always a little questionable. The Chipotle in S. Beverly seems to be doing fine.

Are the mobs stealing tacos from Chipotle?
