    Crime always increases with democrats in charge. They need criminals to fill their prisons that they build the hundreds every year in this country

    If the intent here is to try to say organized theft is a sf thing or blue thing..well then you are an idiot.

    This happens in Texas and everywhere that has stores, meth, people

    It’s combination of things in SF
    Heroin is the choice drug there tho

    It’s all national news now
    https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/theft-plagued-walgreens-closing-san-francisco-stores-80550211


    “Retail theft across our San Francisco stores has continued to increase in the past few months to five times our chain average" despite large increases in security, Walgreens spokesperson Phil Caruso said.

    San Francisco Supervisor Ahsha Safai said he was devastated by the loss of a Mission Street store that “has been a staple for seniors, families and children for decades."

    “This is a sad day for San Francisco,” Safai told SFGATE. “We can’t continue to let these anchor institutions close that so many people rely on.”

    Last year, Walgreens closed one store where the chain said it was losing $1,000 a day to

    My wife has worked in corp oversee of stores and a big part of it is loss prevention issues. At companies like bath body works ,express, Victoria secret they are owned by same group. They would frequently get raided by organized groups to memorial city and portofino woodlands locations. Right here in Texas.

    SF is a great place and as criminal elements get more bold in Texas California etc. the problem will only get worse. You guys are all good people so I can say it here but basically raiding and mass stealing is easy and stores and places don't do anything. At bath and body these big fat women would come and take entire shelf. Sometimes staff would try to play tough ..one girl got decked .
    These chicks are rough. It's almost always chicks..It's really quite scary and bath body and these companies literally will do nothing so the only one endangered is the staff and the staff is told not to intervene so it's open season..

    Not sure what the blue or red solution is here we've been kinda operating on a honor system in general in society.once you decide you will steal what is the stupid little associate going to do? Tackle you? Haha ok

    Well the flea markets in h town sell some cheap knockoffs
    While the ones they busted in San Francisco sold Walgreens, cvs, and target brand stuff
    That’s pretty amazing how they sell name brand stuff at 100% margin there
    I like the colors red and yellow
    The best
    The blue and red with the flying dildo was the worst

    Organized crime shoplifters will clean an entire shelf at bath body works here in Texas ..and they can leave with "thousands" in products yet it's all lotion and costs pennies to produce. Bath and body is playing a numbers game of low costs to produce , hoping for no injury,and look the other way.
    These same lotions will appear in spas and nail salons around town here in Texas.
    People steal in San Fran and in texas..it's a shame

    You say that but employers have the leverage in a lot of situations. If someone is poor and living paycheck to paycheck, a few days without income could be catastrophic. They also have less time to go for interviews, and transportation could be an issue for them.

    North Korea is a country with no private employers
    You don’t have to be poor for the your entire life
    That’s why capitalism works
    Also they didn’t close 5 Walgreens for no reason
    If you don’t work for Walgreens then it shouldn’t matter to you

    I worked in retail mgmt for 23 years (although I left it almost 10 years ago). I could write a book with what I've seen.

    could I buy the book at Walgreens, target or cvs?

    I know I can easily find one of those stores open and operating past 6 pm in any city , except for maybe one city.

    Damn these white supremacist shoplifters. Brandon was right, they’re the most dangerous and irreprehensible group and the biggest threat to America.

    The people who don’t care about the fake politics in that area are the criminals
    They are actually doing something for the homeless drug addicts
    Giving them purpose and letting them have what they want more drugs

    while the stupid politicians throw money at shelters no drug addicts would go to anyway
    And no real estate owner wants to put on their land

    The least racist and politically motivated people in that city are the criminals !
