So-called “smash and grab” robberies are on the rise all across the nation, causing business owners to completely rethink the way they conduct business.
However, a recent smash-and-grab was so heinous that prominent voices from around the world are chiming in.
And rapper 50 Cent just tore Los Angeles to shreds leaving Gavin Newsom furious.
Pro-crime policies and weak D.A.’s have turned California into a warzone
Crime is on the rise all over the nation, but particularly on the rise in Democrat-controlled states and cities.
Los Angeles is one such city, and in recent years violent crime, drug crime, and property crime have overwhelmed the once-great city.
Last Saturday, thieves took things to the next level, after ransacking a Nordstrom at the Topanga Mall in Canoga Park.
Officials estimate that anywhere from 30 to 50 thieves ran into the store, feverishly snagging merchandise from store shelves.
Furthermore, law enforcement officials estimate that
anywhere from $60,000 to $100,000 was stolen in this eye-opening smash-and-grab robbery.
The mass robbery was caught on video and went viral almost immediately after going online.
People across the world are shocked by this bold criminal act, including legendary rapper 50 Cent.
50 Cent shared a screenshot of the chaotic video, commenting “I told you LA was finished.”
He added, “They are gonna have to lock the doors, appointment only. SMH.”
To 50’s point, stores in other California cities have implemented similar measures, with some department stores around the bay area locking up the majority of their merchandise.
In fact, Nordstrom’s flagship store in San Francisco recently announced its closure, following years of similar thefts.
50 Cent has criticized California’s decline in the past, warning officials of the damage their pro-crime policies are doing to citizens and business owners.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has not yet offered any meaningful remarks about the robbery, and many of his critics claim that he appears unbothered by the terrifying mass robbery.
Law-abiding citizens are paying the price for the Democrat’s support of criminals
The sad truth is that many Democrat politicians such as Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass have no desire to lock up criminals.
Smash-and-grab robberies, such as the one that recently occurred at Nordstrom are a symptom of these pro-crimes policies.
As 50 Cent points out, the people who suffer the most from their robberies are law-abiding citizens and business owners.
When stores like Nordstrom close, hundreds of jobs are lost, causing severe financial hardship to the surrounding community.
California’s inability to control crime is creating a financial crisis that could cripple the state for many years.
