Shoplifting and looting becoming more common

Sick people should be put down.

 

A video has gone viral showing a brutal attack that left an elderly Asian store owner "gravely injured" this month in President Biden's home state of Delaware.

The footage depicts the 68-year-old owner of Solid Gold, a jewelry store in Wilmington, Delaware, being pistol-whipped, stomped on the head and then beaten with a hammer, according to a report.

The attack, which took place Sept. 15, happened after a man clad in black went up to the owner and pointed a pistol at his head. The video then shows him grabbing the store owner's throat and whipping him in the head with his pistol.

Steve Suh, the unidentified store owner's son, said the attack dragged on for over 20 minutes. Suh said his father was taken to the ICU with an internal head bleed and a severe concussion.

"He is relearning how to do the most basic things like walk, read and talk," Suh said, who added that anyone "else his age may have easily been killed." At least $100,000 in the store's jewelry was also stolen, Suh wrote.

"My father is 68 and his ‘American Dream’ has come to a crashing halt," said Suh, who also explained that his father's store also suffered extensive looting during the 2020 George Floyd protests and "left him with virtually nothing."

An EMT was stabbed by a maniac on a Queens street Thursday afternoon — in an unprovoked attack that occurred as she went to grab food, authorities said.

Lt. Alison Russo-Elling, a 61-year-old department veteran who was a World Trade Center responder on Sept. 11, 2001, was stabbed more than 20 times by an assailant at 20th Avenue and 41st Street around 2:20 p.m., police said.

The 25-year veteran was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition but could not be saved, police said.

Of course, in the wake of a hurricane, thugs come out looting.

 

Florida sheriff's deputies arrested four suspected burglars who allegedly looted in the wake of Hurricane Ian, while many impacted Floridians struggle to recover from the Category 4 storm.

Omar Mejia Ortiz, 33, and Valerie Celeste Salcedo Mena, 26, were arrested, along with 20-year-olds Brandon Mauricio Araya and Steve Eduardo Sanchez Araya. Lee County sheriff's deputies arrested all four on charges of burglary of an unoccupied structure during a state of emergency, according to online jail records.

The arrests came after Lee County issued a strict curfew and "zero-tolerance" policy for looting. The southwest Florida county was devastated by Hurricane Ian, prompting officials to issue warnings after burglars were spotted ransacking homes in Fort Myers.

"When law enforcement was unable to respond because of weather conditions, there was a break-in on Cleveland Avenue River," Lee County Manager Roger Dejarlais said in a press conference last week.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued his own warnings against looters seeking to plunder abandoned homes and businesses.

"Don’t even think about looting," DeSantis said in a press conference. "Don’t even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation."

"When I say zero tolerance, zero tolerance means we will hunt you down, track you down, and you’re going to jail. If you’re lucky," DeSantis warned.

"Florida is a law and order state," the Republican governor tweeted the following day. "Looting and lawlessness will not be tolerated."

The owner of a wig shop in Los Angeles was stabbed to death as he attempted to prevent shoplifting at his business.

Tommy Lee, who immigrated from South Korea, owned the store in downtown LA for about 20 years before his life was cut short.

The attack happened Saturday afternoon when two 17 year olds approached Lee and tried to rob him. Police said the teens brutally stabbed Lee to death.

San Francisco is struggling with a crime wave, open-air drug use, and public defecation, but it recently welcomed the opening of a new posh restaurant for pets.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported:

Dogue opened last week at 988 Valencia St. with pastries and “dogguccinos” served during the day and a $75, three-course tasting menu on Sundays. Passersby could easily confuse this for San Francisco’s hottest new all-day cafe. A glass case is filled with elegant pastries, like a rose-shaped cake filled with wild venison heart and a doggy petit gâteau modeled after the creations of acclaimed French pastry chef Cédric Grolet. (Dogue’s version swaps butter and sugar for grass-fed cream and braised chicken.) On Sundays, Dogue transitions into Bone Appetit Cafe, where chicken-mushroom soup is poured tableside — and then promptly licked up by the eager diners.

It’s unsurprising that what is likely the country’s first dog restaurant opened in San Francisco, where dogs reportedly recently outnumbered children, and pet owners can join members-only vet clinics with high-end perks like genetic testing.

There no reason not to fiddle while Rome burns, 

I dunno, there’s something about the juxtaposition of the condition of people living in the streets of San Francisco and affluent folks taking their dogs out to a restaurant to eat gourmet dog food. Entrepreneurs have my blessing.

The FBI’s latest crime report shows violent crime dropped in 2021, but there are a few gaps in the data -- like New York and Los Angeles.

Police departments in the nation’s two biggest cities were among those that failed to convert to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s new data collection system, meaning they weren’t able to submit statistics for the report released Wednesday. The FBI and Justice Department instead made estimates for those cities.

According to the new report, the number of murders rose 4.3% in 2021 from 22,000 to 22,900. That compares to a whopping 30% jump between 2019 and 2020. The FBI said violent crimes dropped because a 9% decrease in robberies offset smaller increases in murders and rapes.

Green Versus Purple: The Alien Gang War That Hijacked GTA Online

SmartSelect_20221006-100943_Chrome.thumb.jpg.3a80a037ebfe553a9d69c2879299204b.jpg

The basic premise of the war is that those wearing green alien bodysuits are agents of anarchy, attacking players at random and restricted by just one ‘moral code’: no guns. Those wearing purple alien costumes are out to stop the greens, acting as a sort of vigilante army protecting other players.

Sometimes they do go to prison.

But seems took 1000+ offenses to achieve a four year term. Even after admitting/confessing to hundreds of past offenses.

Oregon... Light on crime. A homeless, and drug addict's, paradise.

That headliine is a lie.   There is nothing woke about smashing windows.   What is wrong with people?   The ones who smash windows because a cop is going to attend an event (was invited to); And the a**hats that claim the mob was "Woke".  What does that even mean?   A right wing divisive term that does not fit more than a few nutters.   Give it up Zebra, this is not the way to report news so maybe you could find a different version of the story than the Daily Mail, which is a rag that works as hard at feeding the divisiveness  as Fox and CNN.

Much better.   6 masked vandals is a much more accurate description without the emotional zombie baggage.   Thanks.

Were you there to ask what party they were registered with?  How do you know they were democrats?   It never mentioned that in the story.

Playing the odds.   The hate of cops in recent years was by mostly democrats.    Would you say the same thing if an abortion clinic was vandalized?   You wouldn't assume it was right wing folks?

I would assume it was destructive idiots who just wanted an excuse to cause damage to something.  Just like I would say the same thing about the 6 masked vandals.  Idiots who just want an excuse to cause damage.   Has no political rationality to it at all, even if that is their excuse, it is not that they are really political minded.   When you decide one or the other side is at fault or responsible you are being a zombie, choosing sides and making everything about politics is zombie brained.    You obviously don't read my posts.

They've brainwashed numbskulls to be their very own Brownshirts.
