New video shows NYC luxury shop robbed in broad daylight after one regrettable decision

It’s just not safe to live in or do business in large swathes of the Big Apple these days.

There are many reasons for this but much of it has to do with policy decisions by Democrat leaders.

Now a new video shows an NYC luxury shop robbed in broad daylight after one regrettable decision.

Hardly a week goes by without violent criminal activity making national headlines in New York City.

The streets are unsafe for police and the criminals know it and take full advantage.

City cops are retiring in record numbers and replacements are getting harder to come by as prosecutors who won’t prosecute allow criminals right back onto the streets after their arrests.

Another theft by gunpoint in broad daylight in NYC

The popular social media account Libs of TikTok shared a video of an armed robbery at a New York City Gucci store.

The gun-wielding thugs got away with $50,000 in stolen merchandise.

Under normal circumstances, one would say that the business being robbed in a situation like this bears zero responsibility for such brazen criminal activity.

But we live in 2024 America and idiocy in business management and public policy are proving to be less and less the exception to the rule.

All too often these days we find that criminal activity is tolerated if not encouraged by those who ought to know better, and this only sets the stage for more lawlessness.

Virtue-signaling doesn’t help in real life

Gucci, not necessarily this individual store but the company, has a history of tolerating and encouraging bad behavior.

Gucci is owned by Kering and Kering went all-in on the radical social justice leftist movement during the summer of 2020 after the death of George Floyd.

At the time, looters and rioters destroyed multiple cities across the United States.

CNN covered the mayhem using rose-colored “Fiery but mostly peaceful” descriptions for the violent provocateurs who were burning down buildings.

All the while, Kering was doling out cash to the very groups that were responsible for the civil unrest.

In a post on the company’s website dated June 1, 2020, “Kering and its brands (Gucci is prominently listed) stand in solidarity against racism. Words alone are not enough and [we] want to contribute to organizations focused on combating systemic racism and ending police violence towards the Black community in the United States.” 

The post continued, “Today, on behalf of all its brands, Kering is making a donation to Campaign Zero, an organization that aims to reduce police violence in the United States.”

The problem here is that Campaign Zero, the direct recipient of Kering’s dollars, actively works to defund and reduce policing.

That would be the same policing that would have come in handy on the day of the robbery.

Campaign Zero proclaims on its website, “We can live in a world beyond policing.” 

The group aims to “Shrink the Reliance and Power of the Police” and “End Mass Incarceration by “dismantling our criminal legal system.”

In other words, Gucci’s parent company is donating money to groups peddling pure radicalism.

The old saying is that a conservative is what you call a leftist who got mugged.

For the benefit of their employees, hopefully, this incident makes this company and others understand that leftist virtue-signaling has real and negative consequences.
