Residents are livid as one clueless Governor finally notices thugs have taken over his state

Apparently, someone started reading the news – or at least glanced at a social media news stream for a few seconds.

Now, one Governor says he wants to “make an example” out of thieves.

And people in his state have a good reason to be furious about the Democrat’s announcement.

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom seems to be emerging from a politically correct fog following a nasty few weeks of “mass thefts” in the Golden State.

No doubt, Californians who have been overrun by thieves and thugs for more than a year aren’t impressed it’s taken this long for the Governor to finally get fed up with the total lack of law and order in his state.

California is reeling from non-stop robberies where everything from jewelry stores to cannabis shops have been ransacked.

And retailers ranging from Home Depot to Louis Vuitton and Burberry have been hit by mobs of thieves.

“They’re not just stealing people’s products and impacting their livelihoods, they’re stealing a sense of place and confidence,” Newsom said, finally stating the obvious, recently.

“That’s why you’ve got to get serious about it,” he continued, according to a California CBS station. “I’m not the Mayor of California. But I was a Mayor. And I know when things like this happen, Mayors have to step up. That’s not an indictment. That’s not a cheap shot.”

It may not be a cheap shot, but it comes more than a year late and, no doubt, millions of dollars short.

Democrats who refused to step in during Black Lives Matters riots in 2020 helped build this monster.

In fact, back in August 2020, Chicago Black Lives Matters organizer Ariel Atkins called looting “reparation” and insisted that even calling someone a criminal is “based on racism.”

California leftists helped build the case for opportunistic criminals when Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton told cops they need to consider if looters “need” stolen merchandise before charging them with theft.

The same DA charged a couple who painted over a Black Lives Matter sign with a hate crime.

No wonder far-left billionaire George Soros adores her.

But now that flash mob theft has migrated from poor and middle-class neighborhood convenience and drug stores, it seems a whole lot of left-leaning Democrats are about to have a change of heart regarding exactly what mobs of thieves “need.”

No doubt, “not in my shopping mall” is quickly becoming a focal point for elites who didn’t seem to care what average businesses and shoppers were dealing with until their own luxury purses and coats came under attack.

Newsom’s own San Francisco wine shop, PlumpJack, has been broken into four times this year.

In spite of billing itself as a “cultural, commercial, and financial center,” the city seems to have a local government that’s better at making excuses than actually doing its job.

After Walgreens announced that it will close five stores in the city, the San Francisco Chronicle ran a story critical of the chain’s rationale for closing due to the high shoplifting rate saying that each store had fewer than two recorded shoplifting cases every month since 2018.

The Mayor didn’t seem to think that was a big deal, but a Walgreens spokesman pointed out that over the past several months, “retail theft in San Francisco had escalated to ‘five times our chain average’ at its stores and that as a result the corporation had ramped up investments in security for San Francisco locations ‘to 46 times our chain average.’”

One of the Walgreens stores slated for closure includes one featured in a viral video where a thief sailed out of the store riding a bicycle while gripping garbage bags full of loot.
