San Fransisco loses third Walgreens due to ‘rampant shoplifting’


Lost in the election conversation is a discussion of what liberalism does to the quality of life for the regular Joe and Jane trying to live in these decaying cities.The stores that locals depend on disappear. One would think it would be possible for city dwellers to connect the dots and think about changing the governance of their cities. But no, they continue to vote headlong into continued democrat leadership that only brings them more pain and suffering.

We are focused on the upcoming presidential race. But is is the thousands of other choices for candidates that we have when we get to the polls. State and Local candidates. The candidates that will really effect our living on a day to day basis. Whether it is the local school boards, council men and women, mayors – these are the people that will wind up controlling planning and zoning, Judges who will decide what to do with our criminals.

Not to be forgotten often are the “questions” on the ballots. One only needs to look at States such as California to have a look at what “proposition” questions have done to their fair State.

There can be no better example in what progressivism does to a city than San Fransisco:

The effects of allowing chaos to prevail in liberal run cities across America might not be obvious to liberals now, but when their cities empty out completely, it’s going to become crystal clear.

Such is the case in San Francisco, where the city’s new normal of shoplifting and chaos has driven another Walgreens pharmacy out of the city.

The move to close the Walgreens at Van Ness and Eddy came after “months of seeing its shelves repeatedly cleaned out by brazen shoplifters”, according to the SF Chronicle. The location served “many older people” who lived in the area.

One customer told the paper: “All of us knew it was coming. Whenever we go in there, they always have problems with shoplifters.”

When the Chronicle went to visit the store, they noticed “aisle after aisle of near empty shelves” and said that beauty products seemed to be a favored target. While the Chronicle was in the store, a man with a mask on walked in, emptied two shelves into a bag and walked out the door. 

H/T Zero Hedge


Other than that all is well in the swamp.

    I pity the older people who relied on these Walgreens. Of course, the government of San Francisco doesn’t care one whit — never mind their rhetoric.

    At some point they have to put two and two together and realize what is causing this, don’t they?! But of course their philosophy is these people need these items and cannot afford them so they have to steal them, therefor they should not be prosecuted. Meanwhile stores close, goods cannot be purchased, the price goes up and everybody is worse of because of it.

    Oh, gosh, Bunks. I’m thinking that this situation is a likely consequence of electing monkeys to run the zoo. Walgreen’s will always make a decision that’s best for their bottom line. Maybe when the good citizens of San Francisco can no longer obtain prescription medications, they’ll wake up to the fact that they’ve made some abysmal choices over the past 50 years. Maybe. No, I’m not holding my breath … and I’m only “this far” away from not giving a hoot. Progressivism (as re-defined by the American left) is a cancer. Not even nuclear radiation will cure it.

      We wait for the “awakening” but I see nothing to indicate that the denizens of these hell holes see their way out of their predicament. No, they rather embrace the terror that is their lives. Now, those with the resources flee … only taking their liberal virus to their next destination, infecting their new nests.

        Here in NJ’s affluent northern countries we have a never ending stream of NY liberals, tired of high taxes and crime, moving here and electing the same liberal vermin whose policies are/we’re responsible for reducing the epicenter of world commerce, finance, banking and culture into what is becoming a virtual no mans land. But have no fear Wall Street rolls merrily along with its support of the Harris/Biden ticket along with corporate America. Again, here in Jersey old homes, businesses along with nearly every square foot of empty lots are cleared for thousands upon thousands (not an exaggeration) of condo rental units. With our crumbling infrastructure and unimaginably overburdened roads our newly welcomed liberals should be more than happy to wok from home.

        I completely agree with you. Eastward migrating Californians have poisoned the wells in Colorado. An amazing evolution, for sure.

        In time they will find a way to move those who they find as their “lessers” by condemming their homes to make way for new strip malls and high risers…otherwise known as Eminent Domain.

    SF is the epitome of what the voters, black white brown polka dot, on our democrat run plantations seem not be able to get enough of,
    These lyrics say it all
