Maybe if police were not busy oppressing minorities with the Republicans endless war on drugs they would have time to focus on petty theft.
We get it, Mike: You don’t LIKE treating everyone equally and making sure that that equality is at a good level.
For many people, “defunding the police” is a life saver.
Your republigoon masters will be proud of you!
Spot on Mike. Smash and grab looting is happening on a daily basis across the USA along with a drastic increase in violent crimes and deaths. Now, even the idiotic Democrats who defunded the police in their cities are reversing their decision in order to save lives.
Cute but statistics don’t support you. Crime rates in GOP cities are the same as those in Democrat led cities. Crime rates in cities that increased police funding showed increases in crime.
By pushing this false FoxNews-inspired narrative, you ignore the true roots and causes of crime. Typical GOP-posturing.
Even the mayor of San Francisco said yesterday that in order to get their city back on track, they would need more police, and need to revisit dumb ideas like anything stolen that is less than $950 in value would not be prosecuted.
At what point should we punish people who commit criminal acts? Are we just going to ignore mass theft? How can a society operate like that?
Huh? Worst rationalization ever. If it was your family/business/property/livelihood? Yikes.
Most appropriate window signage: “LOOTERS WILL BE SHOT!” (Forget ‘Prosecution’) It’s obvious this is the only solution to the lawlessness across the country. A few looters laying in an invaded store’s aisles will send a message to potential miscreants: STAY OUT!
PS to anti-gun States: Exercise your 2nd Amendment RIGHTS and arm yourselves. Your ‘defund law enforcement’ politicians surely can/will not!
Tell the cowardly “be afraid, be very afraid” and they will vote for the liars. Republican platform!
Flash mobs have become smash mobs. This has been developing for a while. When the gangs show up ready to defend themselves with semi-automatic weapons, we’ll see the fruition of Republican dreams.
Wouldn’t need any police if it weren’t for all the rabble rousers exciting the gullible. Be such a perfect world if we were all like Michael.
I despair that so many of the commenters here rationalize away such blatantly criminal behaviors. I don’t believe most people do. The Democrats / progressives are destroying themselves.
I don’t care which side of politics that you are on, if you think this type of actions are acceptable or excusable, then you are part of the problem.
Is Ramirez doing a bit of ‘fear mongering’ here?
Its not legal to steal several people have been arrested.
If they were ‘woke’ they would not steal
Now let us talk about the unwoke republicans trying to steal the American election.
Now who would want to destroy a “woke” store? Alt-rights, of course…
Gov. DeSantis continues in his efforts to out-Trump Trump with ridiculous new ‘Stop W.O.K.E Act’
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gave a press conference Wednesday with his Lt. Gov. Jeanette Núñez and his Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran, along with a few conservative moms from the activist group Moms For Liberty, and their daughters—all for a good show.
In it, the governor proclaimed he was “taking a stand against critical race theory in Florida schools and in the workplace by enacting his newest piece of legislation called … ‘Stop Wrongs Against Our Kids and Employees Act,’” or the “Stop W.O.K.E. Act.”
“Our legislation will defend any money for K-12 going to CRT consultants,” the governor said. “No taxpayer dollars should be used to teach our kids to hate our country or hate each other.”
The lying racist republicans want you to stay asleep while they stop your vote and steal the elections.
PROPERLY fund for services in addition to police. Stop allowing no-knock warrants. This would save money that is paid out in lawsuits.
Mike continues his word salad of worn out tropes and memes, lacking anything else.
First off, nobody with any sense would rob the “Woke Store” cause those people got nothing. This was just vandalism masquerading as theft. So it was done by Cops, or MAGAts, or MAGAt cops.
Even the WOKE mayor of Frisco has had enough of this stuff.
How is being humane, decent, socially- and culturally-aware, sane and informed a “bad thing”?
I simply cannot grasp this psychotic fear that the right-wing has of people being “Woke”.
How is being socially and morally CATATONIC like these right-wing lunatics are somehow better than actually having your eyes open and your mind tuned into what’s actually going on?
This whole demented fear of people being “Woke” is pure CULT-THINK!
I often wonder if you really don’t understand or if you are as stupid as Trumps cult of morons.
