Bummer: Smash And Grab Targeting Cannabis Shops

Well, this is a hell of a kerfuffle

From the link

Cannabis shops across the San Francisco Bay Area have been thrown into dire straits as gangs of thieves broke into more than 15 shops throughout November during the series of ‘smash-and-grab’ robberies that are plaguing California.

Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong told reporters that ‘hundreds’ of vehicles targeted marijuana stores in Oakland last month, firing 175 shots and stealing about $5 million worth of products.

Alphonso ‘Tucky’ Blunt, owner of Blunts and Moore, told MJBizDaily that his store lost about $25,000 during a November 22 raid, where more than a dozen burglars ransacked the store.

‘I know 25 or so businesses that got hit … and out of all those, the percentage I know that told me that they may not be able to reopen is about 50 percent. That’s scary,’ Blunt said.

‘I was safer, and had more money, (selling) on the street, illegally.’

Who saw that coming?

(NY Post) Usually at this time of year, San Francisco’s luxury stores are decked with holiday garlands. Instead, they’re boarded up after widespread “flash mob” looting turned Union Square — the city’s most fashionable shopping district — into an area resembling a blighted neighborhood in Detroit.

“It’s a ghost town,” said Michelle Tandler, a San Francisco native and high-tech entrepreneur, whose photos of the stores barricaded in plywood went viral on social media this week. “Every store has a security guard. People are going to lose their jobs. And these things have a ripple effect.” (snip)

“This is traumatizing for our associates and is unacceptable,” said Best Buy CEO Corie Barry four days before yet another outlet was ransacked on Black Friday in a Minnesota mall. “We are doing everything we can to try to create as safe as possible environment.”

This ends up hurting the middle and lower classes, as they are terrorized, assaulted, and lose their jobs. Those who would make commissions will see a big reduction as customers just stay away and order even more online. Good job, progressives.

    I’m naturally opposed to this looting, but I will admit to a sense of schadenfreude that pot shops are being hit. A business which exists to help people get stoned shouldn’t be surprised when people behave irrationally and don’t obey the law.

    The looters or plunderers if you will are being framed as heroes by the leftist Democrat negresses and their white communist comrades on TV as the great rectifiers of slavery. You see, looting isn’t stealing rather it’s reparations. The $15,000 Louis Vuitton handbags are to repay people who never were slaves for the injustices perpetrated upon them by people who never owned slaves. They call it “equity” and it’s as much a plank in the Democratic/communist platform as abortion or booing God is.

    Once the November Coup was successfully executed the illegal junta began consolidating its power by refusing to allow any challenges to the election to go forward. It even refused social media from reporting on it as well as the fake news media. Like they’re doing with the overblown Covid hoax. Trump was right (again) it was all a hoax to get power.

    They have been very successful.

    All out of the anarchists’ playbook. Societal disruption. The GOPhers sweep in to restore order and establish their white, christian, authoritarian nation.

    The GOPhers are suppressing voter rights state by state and also taking control of the voting apparatus in states. This is how a minority rules. Jan 6 was a trial run.

    Brandon: refusing to allow any challenges to the election to go forward

    Several dozens of cases were brought to the court and dismissed by judges appointed by both Dems and GOPhers. The legislatures of the states in question were controlled by GOPhers. Most of the AGs/Sec of State were GOPhers. Remember Georgia? Were these GOPhers just not “tRumpy” enough to “win” an election tRump clearly lost?

    The goal of the nuGOPhers is to destroy America and rebuilt it as a white, christian haven.

      Every time you type something that dumb I really think you lose IQ points. It’s weird. But at least you maintain your love of killing colored zygotes. Kudos.
