Riots and looting have spread across Democrat-run cities for months, and Democrat leaders don’t seem to be making things better.
California cities have been rocked by seemingly endless looting of stores and local businesses.
Believe it or not, leftists are writing articles and books claiming looting is a form of “reparations.”
As if those robbing high-end shoe stores are doing it to feed their families.
Now, a California district attorney has gone a step further:
A California district attorney allegedly issued guidance to law enforcement in her county that required them to consider if looters needed their loot before the police charged them with a crime.
Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton’s guidance reportedly also included consideration of whether “the target business open or closed” at the time of the looting and “what was the manner and means” by which the looter gained entry to the target business.
DA Diana Becton appears to be trying to help looters, by urging law enforcement to “consider” if looters actually need the loot they stole from local businesses.
It seems like this district attorney is trying to turn a blind eye to widespread crime that is putting local businesses out for good.
From most reports, it doesn’t seem looters are robbing grocery stores for eggs and other staples.
Instead, they are targeting large chains and carrying off luxury items and other non-essential goods.
Yet this DA wants cops to look the other way, because these people need this stuff?
Whatever happened to working for a paycheck and buying the things you want or need?
Apparently, Becton doesn’t think that’s good enough of an excuse. She thinks that looters, who are ruining the livelihoods of many people, should be given a pass.
How do you think the police will respond? They risk their lives every day to protect their cities, only for a politically-driven DA to come up with this bogus rule.
Is it really okay to smash up a local business, destroying their property, stealing the goods they had to pay for because you are poor or feel wronged?
Is that the American Dream, these days?
It appears to be, according to Democrats.
- A California DA is urging cops to “consider” why looters are stealing goods.
- This comes as radical leftists call criminal acts of looting “reparations.”
- Numerous blue cities have seen countless businesses destroyed over the Summer.
