    I don't know. If I was a business owner of a small business or the CEO of Target and I notice my shrinkage is at an all time high since 2020 due to the theft of merchandise I don't think I will care if its looting, stealing, organized theft or undocumented transfer of goods without cash. I am losing money.

    I look at my insurance premiums go up because X amount of businesses have been vandalized by groups sympathetic to left leaning causes. I can call that by 100 names but the fact is that my insurance rates have gone up and continue to go up because there is no deterrent by local and state government on such crime

    To think we don't have a problem is burying our head in the sand.

    We can't call it "looting" when 50 or more people use hammers to smash department store jewelry counters and steal millions in merchandise. But we can call it "terrorism" when parents get loud at school board meetings.

    Default The shitty progressive idea/bs thread

    If you want to solve a problem, you have to correctly identify it. Looting is a side effect of protests that get violent, themselves side effects of some condition(s). You can prepare for looting and have a plan in place, but ultimately the solution is an end to the protest/unrest or the condition.

    So are these protests? Are they against some issue? It doesn’t seem so. Premeditated thieving rings are different.

    In the Bay Area, Police said, “This isn’t a crime of opportunity, it’s very planned and organized. They are armed.” Rachel Michelin, President and CEO of the California Retailers Association, went on to say, “This was being orchestrated by an organized crime ring. Not retail crime. Organized crime. So when you talk about human trafficking and you talk about drug cartels – that’s the area that we’re in right now and retail theft is funding those really bad crimes happening not only throughout California, but our country.”

    You can make fun of the woke people, they’re ripe for it. But police and retail outlets are making the distinction for a reason. If you want to call it looting, fine, but then you looking for the wrong solution.

    To Michelin’s final point, property crimes in CA are at all time lows. This is a problem in San Francisco and LA, but also Miami, New York, Baltimore, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, according to the National Retail Federation. Concentrating just on CA won’t help either.

    Well I don't give a shit who's the real ringleader. If cops, politicians, and retailers don't care then I don't care.

    I do find it funny that once again it's an American problem. This isn't happening in Canada or the UK.

    Let's just start the 2nd Civil War and get it over already. At some point we're all gonna have enough and start blasting each other.

    I don’t understand what you’re saying here. Cops and retailers DO care, that’s why they are pointing out that this isn’t looting, but organized theft.

    Like, you can keep throwing money at schools saying they’re underfunded, but if the real problem is kids of parents who aren’t interested in their kids’ education are the ones who are unsuccessful, then money to buy every kid an iPad isn’t going to help.

    Also, if organized theft is up but property crime is down, then it’s worth a deeper look as to what is actually happening.

    I think it's already started to a certain degree. It's just more of a Civil Feud right now.

    When will it come to a head...within 5 years...10 years? We will see it and it will be the result of the political sides of our government and news media pitting us against each other.

    You can blame the media or the government all you want. Ultimately, it's no one's fault but our own. Too many fringe extremist idiots driving things right now. They are given too much attention in the media and, for some fucked up reason, people are electing them into positions of authority.

    Having said that, I don't think things will actually come to a head. Call me naive, but I still think that wiser minds will prevail.

    It could get very ugly but ultimately the military would step in.

    Civil War isn't hyperbole. It could happen.

    We shouldn't wish for it to happen or attempt to hasten its arrival. The last time it cost over 700,000 American lives.

    Not sure about a Civil War, but if Trump gets the Republican nomination in 2024, I think we can almost guarantee a Constitutional Crisis and a threat to a peaceful transfer of power.

    Even Bill Maurer is calling for cooler heads on both sides and coexisitence. I do not think the majority of sane Americans wants to see civil war break out even if its guerrilla warfare. That's why when riots break out left or right swift action is needed to squash it asap. Problem is the government does not do that anymore. Tear gas asap, night sticks, water hose, rubber bullets, then mass arrest what happened to that? If you let animals go untrained then the animals will take over.

    CNN gets nuked for deceptively blaming a car for the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre: 'You guys are a joke'

    CNN: "Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others."

    Conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza: "Not a 'black leftist who supports BLM and vilifies white people.' No, this CNN headline insists it was the 'car' that drove through the parade. Now imagine how CNN would frame this if the perpetrator happened to be white."

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
