    How sad! I wonder if another reason for this is because there could be more rioting if the police show up. What will people do if they can't get their medications:

    It isn’t petty crime if it closes the store down.

    I hate thiefs, from “petty” crime all the way up to major financial crimes — punishments, especially for repeat offenders need to be ramped up significantly

    What I hate, in addition to what you wrote above, is you often hear that a thief receives just a slap on the wrist because it's a first offense. Wrong, it is not a first offense, it's the first time they have been caught.

    Those shoplifters all seem to share a certain trait. It's uncanny.

    Oh it's not just thieves.

    Democrats don't punish any crime. They put murders and rapists back on the streets. They put people burning down cities back on the streets.

    The entire narrative of BLM is that no matter what crimes are committed, if the police shoot someone of the wrong race, they'll commit vast amounts of crime in response.

    Single party rule by Leftists and this is the result. You should see the state mandated holiday regulations the Democrats released.

    New Mandatory California Christmas/Thanksgiving Gathering Guidelines (Official)

    · No more than 3 households, including your own may gather
    · The host of the gathering must collect all names and addresses of those attending
    · All gatherings must be held outside
    · You can go to the bathroom inside if the bathroom is frequently sanitized
    · You are allowed to gather in an open park (3) households only, but no concurrent gatherings like with people you know in the same park.
    · All seating must be socially distanced
    · All food must be in single serve disposable dishes
    · You must wear a mask at all times, unless you are eating
    · You can only gather for 2 hours maximum
    · Singing is discouraged, but if you must sing, you must wear a mask and sing below a standard speaking voice.

    Don't take my word for it... read it yourself.

    https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CI...ID-19-Transmission-for-Gatherings-10-09.aspx?

    Note: Hospitalizations and deaths in California are at the lowest numbers in 6 months at this time.

    Voting Democrat is the best way to make that not happen.

    I will start voting Republican when they drop evangelical sharia law as a party platform.

    Enjoy your holiday, subjects.

    Stay in your pods, eat your bug paste, and report all rule infractions and deviance from official regulations to the Ministry of Compliance.

    Decreed from on high by his Governorship, Gavin Newsom the Great and Terrible.

    Yeah, because that's still a thing.

    The Republicans purged all that "moral majority" crap out after Reagan.

    While the Democrats are worshipping bums, criminals, and fetus killers more devoutly every day that goes by.

    Stick with that. It'll go great for you.

    The option will go away for you soon enough. Here in California we often only get one party to choose from in the General Election. We had no Republican for Senator last time. Republicans are not allowed into the General Election as Democrats dilute the primaries with tons of fakes and other candidates to ensure it happens. They then push in their party approved candidate and "the people have chosen", just like with Stalin. Vote Harvesting, Non-Requested Mail in Ballots, Illegal Aliens voting, extreme Gerrymandering, it's all here and it's coming to the rest of America soon enough.

    The test case here worked like a charm and the Democrats have all the pieces in place nationwide:
    • Public Unions 100% Democratic Party support and biggest donors
    • Public Education 100% pushing Democratic Party propaganda and views
    • Social Media, MSM, Big Tech all pushing the Democratic Party propaganda and shutting down opposition
    • District Attorneys funded heavily by Soros and pushing anti-Law & Order measures - Freeing Violent Felons
    • Mail In Voting (Unrequested)
    • No Voter ID
    • Gerrymandering
    • Vote Harvesting

    It's an Authoritarians Dream! It's coming and many of you don't get it, but you will soon enough.

    It's nothing to do with Democrats or Republicans or anything you wrote on your post.

    Californians deserve the government they inflict upon themselves.

    The Founding Fathers are probably spinning in their graves at this point in time. Not because the little Stalin wannabe's do what they do, rather that the American people so placidly roll over for it.

    There are about 35%-40% of us that fight it, but more and more of the good people are leaving. The tax base is bailing out and I will have to join them soon. If I didn't have a son that was a Senior and Huntington Beach High School and running a business that needs my presence, I would already be gone. But, I am setting up that move and will leave the destruction the Democrats deliver soon enough.

    Come to Florida, we need red voters. Cost of living is still cheap in the rural areas.

    I am looking into the Pensacola region currently up to Orange Beach, AL. That is a definite consideration.

    You cant go wrong with those northern gulf beachs, white sugar sand, redneck riviera. Though they got hammered this year by the hurricanes. We did just fine here in SW Fl.

    Yes they are all victims, of racism and society.

    I saw a video almost a year ago when they pretty much made shoplifting for essential purposes NOT a crime. People of certain traits were going in to stores with empty backpacks on and filling them up right in front of the clerks, daring them to do something about it.
    California.......... a nightmare coming near you soon..............just elect Joe to speed that up.

    You know you're contradicting yourself when you say (wrongly) that there is a single party ruling and how all these rules are SO restricting and then say how those same things have given you your lowest numbers in 6 months. How do you think you got there? Personal responsibility like here in SD?

    Read about the phenomena of urban "food deserts" that have existed in inner city areas.

    Regular businesses won't open in these areas because of the high crime and super high rate of blatant thefts. So only convenience stores remain in business in these neighborhoods because their high profit margins are enough to offset the cost of theft and risk of crime, and even then half the merchandise is locked up behind a transparent plexiglass barrier.
    Nobody sells fresh fruit or vegetables because it's not a high enough profit margin item.

    I think what's likely to happen is it will result in the smaller corner stores closing, and then people will have to travel farther to the bigger stores, which will have to implement more security measures. These security measures will end up substantially increasing the prices that the consumer has to pay.

    Cameras, a security guard, and the additional cumulative labor cost of having to assist customers in unlocking plexiglass security barriers.
    Not to mention a security gate to cover the wall-to-wall windows after closing hours. The cost of this all adds up.
