Is San Francisco becoming lawless?

San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge

Businesses in San Francisco are completely closing down or limiting hours because of skyrocketing shoplifting because the state’s woke politicians decided to raise the shoplifting limit for a felony charge from $450 to $950.

It has gotten so bad, that organized gangs are coming into stores with several people (often paid) and calculators to make sure, that they don’t steal too much. The shoplifters often show up with suitcases.

Of course, the police, who are also seeing their funding cut back, don’t respond to calls, since it is basically a waste of time.

In order to stop the shoplifting pandemic, stores must hire security, but there are limits on what they can do, and often they are told to simply watch and record the incidents.

Though many of the gangs go for quantity, there are many quality items that fall under California’s US$950 limit, that are essentially free for the taking. This includes computers, tablets, cell phones, watches and drones.

Over the past five years, Walgreens has closed 17 stores in the San Francisco area alone.
