    It's like a bad novel documenting the moral decay of a post-Christian America.

    Retired Oakland police officer murdered while protecting news crew documenting smash-and-grab retail looters


    Kevin Nishita, a father of two and grandfather of three, was shot and killed while protecting a TV crew covering the surge of smash-and-grab crimes in the Bay Area.

    Nishita, a security guard on assignment to guard a KRON4 news team in Oakland, was shot and killed when a robber targeted the TV crew to rob them of their cameras.
    Nishita, a retired Asian American police officer, confronted one of a dozen masked looters to protect the news crew, and one of the thugs shot him in the abdomen. He died after being transported to hospital in critical condition.
    The Dail Mail reported KRON4’s parent company Nexstar Media, Nishita’s employer Star Protection Agency, and the Oakland Police Department have issued a $32,500 reward for information on his killers.
    “The news team from KRON4 had been reporting on Wednesday on a robbery which had involved 12 armed thugs wearing masks and hoods targeting a Prime 356 clothing store in Oakland,” the Daily Mail reported.
    “Police officers also later found an additional victim - a Berkley man who had been hit by shrapnel - who was also transported to hospital. He is in a stable condition,” the report continued.
    “We are devastated by the loss of security guard and our friend, Kevin Nishita,” KRON4's Vice President Jim Rose said in a statement. “This senseless loss of life is due to yet another violent criminal act in the Bay Area.”
    'We mourn the loss of retired police officer Kevin Nishita who honorably served our Bay Area Community,' said the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office on Twitter. 'He was protecting/guarding a local news crew when he was senselessly murdered.'
    Nishita’s death comes amid a surge in organized smash-and-grab flash mobs in the Bay Area, Chicago, Minneapolis, and elsewhere across the country, which have been emboldened by the so-called “defund the police” movement, whose calls for police abolition has led to a change in policing policies in dealing with retail theft.

    Advocates of the “defund the police” movement claim that arresting and charging criminals for retail theft is a form of “systemic racism” that disproportionately affects blacks.

    'Experts' blasted for cautioning against use of term 'looting' to describe large-scale California thefts

    'People don't need help understanding looting'

    Critics reacted strongly to claims by "experts" Monday that use of the term "looting" to describe recent large-scale thefts from retail stores in California could be associated with people of color and therefore shouldn't be used.

    According to the local ABC affiliate for the Bay Area, the California Penal Code didn't allow for the use of the term "looting" to describe the thefts involving large groups of people because, it claimed, the definition didn't match the act as defined by law. It also cited two individuals it referred to as "experts," who described the term as being reminiscent of Black people and people of color being associated with the act of looting.

    Once again the left exposes their own prejudices with that reasoning. They are the ones associating looting with black people and therefore are offended by the word.

    Perhaps we should use "pillage" or "plunder" instead? As Tweb's resident pirate I give them permission to use those words.

    No, wait. The politically correct term should be "undocumented shopping"

    So leftists are the ones who associate looting with blacks and then assume that everyone does so as well causing their virtue signal reflex to kick into overdrive.

    Errrm - no. Even the linked article has the experts admitting that blacks are not the only ones associated with looting. That demolishes their own argument.

    Curiously, the looters in question were almost exclusively black.
