Crime in Democrat-run cities has gotten ridiculous.
Bad policies have emboldened criminals to commit more crimes.
And an actor caught one brazen crime on video that proves Democrats have lost control of the city.
In 2020, crime jumped 30%, which represented the worst one-year hike in history.
And the trend shows no sign of reversing.
Violent crime is up, but mass theft and brazen shoplifting are also up considerably.
And New York-based actor Michael Rapaport recorded a ridiculous shoplifting incident at a Rite Aid pharmacy where someone calmly walked out of the store with two bags full of merchandise.

San Francisco has been particularly hit hard by this kind of theft, but it’s happening in blue cities across the country.
Los Angeles and Seattle are experiencing the same problem.
Within 12 minutes of stepping foot into the Downtown Seattle Target, I saw security confront two shoplifters.
One staff member told me this happens about every ten minutes in the store. The shelves are empty because of the shoplifting.
Seattle is thriving! pic.twitter.com/4SqALiqI29

It’s galling to see thieves stroll out of stores with bags full of merchandise, which makes things worse for everyone else.
Not only are products not on the shelves, but stores are forced to close down.
In many instances, people count on stores like Target and Rite Aid for daily necessities.
Rapaport was a persistent and vulgar critic of Donald Trump during his Presidency, but after the 2020 election, he issued a message shooting down the corporate-controlled press narratives around people who voted for Trump.
Rapaport said, “[I]f you think the simple reason why they’re voting for Donald Trump is because they’re racist, or they support racists, or they’re okay with racism, you’re a dumb f*ck. Stop generalizing people . . .”
Rampant shoplifting like the kind captured on camera by Rapaport is one of many reasons why voters might favor Republicans like Trump in the 2022 Midterms.
