Shoplifters Are Looting In Broad Daylight In Blue Cities, Police Hands Are Tied Under Democrat Leadership

Following a relentless effort by the Democrat establishment to demonize and defund the police, crime rates in deep-blue cities, including New York City, Portland, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and St. Louis, are skyrocketing.

Muggings, vehicle break-ins, carjackings and homicides are surging in blue cities across the country amid the implementation of bail-reform laws that keep violent offenders out of jail and legislative measures that put the burden of liability on police officers while emboldening criminals.

In San Francisco, Prop 47 prevents police officers from arresting or even intervening with anyone shoplifting up to $950 of merchandise.

Now, thieves are looting stores in broad daylight.

Flagrant shoplifting has become such a regular occurrence in the Golden City that convenience store chains like Walgreens and CVS are resigning to shutting down in the Democrat-run city.

Thieves in Oxford, Connecticut were caught on camera earlier this month brazenly committing grand larceny in the middle of the day, walking out of a grocery store with carts filled to the brim with groceries and cleaning products.

After loading all the stolen products into vehicles with no license plates they recklessly sped off.

On Nov. 8, the Los Angeles Police Department issued an alert advising city residents to “cooperate and comply” when getting mugged or burglarized.

“If you are being robbed, do not resist the robbery suspects; cooperate and comply with their demands. Be a good witness,” the department said in a community alert on Monday.

The advisory came after the Robbery-Homicide division of the LAPD was notified of an “ongoing crime trend of follow-home robberies” in Los Angeles and neighboring cities.

Whiles measures that decriminalize theft are implemented, hyperinflation and the precipitously climbing cost of food will only exacerbate the uptick in theft.

In an era of George Floyd, Black Lives Matter riots and a Defund the Police movement, fighting crime in cities has become too much of a liability, prompting police to leave the force in droves.

Most NYPD cops say they wish they never joined the force in the first place, according to an internal department survey obtained by the New York Post.

“Not only did 56 percent of cops say they wouldn’t put on the badge if they had to do it all over again, but a majority feel the public disrespects (46 percent agree, 42 percent disagree) and distrusts (44 to 41 percent) them,” the Post reported on Saturday.

“A staggering 80 percent of the officers, detectives, sergeants, lieutenants and captains surveyed now fear aggressively fighting crime because of the threat of criminal liability,  being sued, or being unfairly disciplined, lieutenants and captains surveyed now fear aggressively fighting crime because of the threat of criminal liability,  being sued, or being unfairly disciplined,” the publication notes.

According to the survey of 6,000 police officers, 78 percent said they don’t feel supported by the Department and 73 percent said the most effective cops fail to “receive appropriate recognition.”
