Shoplifting in San Francisco keeps getting worse and worse. Many businesses have already shut down. Others have reduced hours and close early. Peak shoplifting hours are in the evening.
“Progressive” chief prosecutors Chesa Boudin of San Francisco County and Jeff Rosen of Santa Clara County are simply refusing to hold anyone accountable. In their radical ideology, shoplifting is a crime of poverty, and prosecuting people would be tantamount to criminalizing the poor.
Earlier this month, a habitual shoplifter sent a San Francisco Walgreens security guard to the hospital. Police say the suspect had been stealing a large amounts of products from various Walgreens and CVS stores every few days for weeks.
