Stores are taking matters into their own hands after Democrats’ policies created chaos

Blue states are losing residents in droves.

States like California make operating a business unnecessarily difficult on multiple fronts.

Now stores are taking matters into their own hands after Democrats’ policies created chaos.

Violent crime is rising in big cities across the country.

Areas controlled by Democrats, particularly those with progressive prosecutors, are reverting back to 1990s levels of crime.

Philadelphia sadly hit a high-water mark for murders in 2021, and several west-coast cities have been beset by crime.

Los Angeles residents have experienced over 130 follow-home robberies where criminals tail customers from high-end stores to their residences.

Even leftists in Beverly Hills are arming themselves.

And stores are beginning to take action in order to curb the trend of “flash mob” robberies.

CBS SF BayArea reports:

“​​Having already cut hours because of rampant shoplifting, the Safeway in San Francisco’s Castro District has installed new security measures to deter thieves. Customers tell KPIX 5 they have noticed more security guards inside and outside of the store, and now they’re seeing more security gates and barriers at the entrance. An automatic gate closes after each person to make it harder for thieves to make a run for it. Safeway also added poles to its shopping carts to make them difficult to remove from the store.”

Bay Area resident Chris Meijia told local reporters, “Honestly, I think it’s probably good that they did that cause there was a really bad shoplifting problem almost every single time I came here, there was some type of ruckus happening.”

In California, shoplifting under $950 worth of merchandise is considered a misdemeanor and far-left District Attorneys aren’t prosecuting the cases, so police essentially are not intervening.

The result has been multiple broad-daylight burglaries where criminals brazenly stroll out of stores with hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise.

Several Walgreens pharmacies have left the Bay Area due to persistent burglaries.

Safeway said in a statement:

“Like other local businesses, we are working on ways to curtail escalating theft to ensure the wellbeing of our employees and to foster a welcoming environment for our customers. Their safety remains our top priority. These long-planned security improvements were implemented with those goals in mind.”

Democrats’ pro-crime policies do not work, and local businesses and customers are paying the price.

George Soros-backed leftist DAs care more about coddling criminals than stopping crime.
