Video- Tidal Wave of Theft, Shoplifting in San Francisco. When there is no law enforcement and everyone knows it, and you cannot defend your own property forcefully because then you'd be sued, etc, then the psychology of "hey, let's just go and grab anything we want" takes over and grows exponentially. And even gets to be really pointless, like breaking into cars that don't have anything valuable in them. San Francisco is now on the steep downward slope of lawlessness, plus of course massive drug use and rampant homelessness. The effects of all this on business, tourism, and people deciding to move out will be building up. How far will it go? Damifino, but right now there doesn't seem to be anything coming to even slow it down. Maybe next election someone will run on the basis of resoring law&order? What a challenge that will be.
