  • Forget riots, looter mobs are the new thing

    Mobs of looters target Bay Area retailers for third straight day

    November 22, 2021 / 7:08 AM / CBS News

    Looters targeting Bay Area businesses struck again Sunday evening, with smash-and-grab thieves hitting a mall in Hayward, California and taking merchandise from a Lululemon store in San Jose, CBS San Francisco reports.

    It was the third day in a row that large mobs of robbers went after retailers in the region.

          Flash mob robberies are nothing new.

            When the stores the rich politicians shop at are closing because of this, maybe the left elites will wake up.
            The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

              Only when Nancy's favorite liquor store gets hit.

                Did anyone bother to tell the news site that this is only the expected outcome from the "reporting" they have engaged in for the past ten years?

                  I was going to say. It's been happening for years in conjunction with peaceful protests. Black business owners have even resorted to signs on store windows identifying black owned business in the hopes that they will be spared, but to no avail.

                    but now they are not even bothering to use a protest as cover. They are just doing it in broad daylight. Part of this is because of the liberals decision not to prosecute what they call 'petty' crimes

                      MSM pushes the agenda, authorities soft pedal to appease the MSM, criminal element gets emboldened by the soft pedalling, MSM proclaims the crimes justifiable and pushes the agenda.

                      Protesters here usually get dispersed or arrested the moment they start throwing things. Innocent people don't get hurt.

                        Even without the cover of protests you'll get a mob rush into a store, go to predetermined spots and all do smash and grabs and the like of targeted merchandise and run out usually all in about 15 seconds or less if its a small store.

                          Ah, that, yes. It's been a growing problem in San Francisco since 2014 after an ordinance was passed to downgrade any theft of less than $1000 to a misdemeanor in order to allow poor people to "shop" for essentials without the inconvenience of a felony conviction. As usual, everybody but the idiot politicians could predict the consequences. Organized crime has been having a field day, and businesses have been leaving in droves.

                            What seems new is how often they struck in a short time. Otherwise, this isn't a new phenomena. The term "flash rob" -- a play on "flash mob" is roughly ten years old. For instance from 2011: Teenage Flash Mob Robberies on the Rise

                            The same technologies that for years have brought together the mostly benign and goofy "flash mobs," in which groups suddenly break into dance at a mall or stumble around like zombies at train stations, is being used to plan and execute bold robberies.

                            Called “flash robs,” these crimes are being organized by young teenagers through various social media outlets, most notably Twitter. Police say the suspects select a time and place and enter the store in droves taking what they want and leaving before security or police can catch them.

                            Some of the most brazen robberies take place in the light of day and on busy streets despite all the security cameras and the watchful eyes of workers.


                            Jewelry stores, those with expensive electronics, and high end apparel stores seem to be the main targets.
