The thieves - or, more accurately, the people paying the thieves - know nobody working at a chain store is packing heat while on the clock.

Before long we'll all need to be buzzed in and escorted around Dollar Tree.

Why would I want to shoot anyone over stealing at a big box store where I work?  It isn't really "my" stuff and, at a huge million dollar company, insurance covers most of the losses.  It isn't really worth it to chase people down, especially if there's a chance to be shot.

Now, at a smaller, mom & pop store, I can understand making sure you try to recover losses due to it being literally your money on the line.  Chasing people down might make more sense and could understand being armed, but a shoot out over a stolen tv seems a bit dumb.

I mean, sure, you should try to stop people from stealing from your job (that's less merch to sell from paying customers)but it's not worth life and limb either.

Maybe they should be shot?

Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Black Friday planned out. We're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, loot some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

They were checking you in at the Louis store at the good mall in my town for several weeks already.  I was there last week to pick something up and the Santa Kiosk had been burgled the night before.

It's not the police, it's the laws that make what these knuckleheads are doing not a felony. Often times they're not even prosecuted.

Cops can crack all the skulls they want, the catch and release is the problem.

Their Rampart division was so lax they could scarcely be described as law enforcement at all. Except for the snazzy uniforms.

This is what happens when people are not only allowed, but encouraged to wear masks.

That's a load of crap. The people cleaning out a Louis Vuitton are getting far more than the $950 that makes shoplifting a misdemeanor. And in some cases, they're smashing their way into closed stores, which automatically makes it felony burglary.

Given the shiat we've dealt with recently, it's entirely believable that some farked up conservative nutjob is behind this trying to push for gun rights or something.

Stealing from a store isn't on par with breaking into a home and stealing.

One gets you arrested, the other gets you shot.

Learn the difference.

Says the guy that spreads lies about whole city blocks being burned down. That never happened. But he is so afraid of the people living in those blocks that he cowers in fear, clutching his guns like a security blanket.

Well,we used have zero tolerance for this and minimum sentencing for that and next thing we k ew we have the biggest prisoner population ever. So they're trying to figure out where to be lenient amd where not to be, and this is a logical conclusion of them tinkering w the model and getting it wrong.

The pendulum will shift the other way I'd expect as people get sick of this shiat.

I for one would be fine w a few of these kids getting shot tbh and I'm a pretty liberal guy

Actually carolers are the watered down milquetoast version of mobs that used to go around demanding booze and food at Christmas... so we need to get to work on turning these looting sprees into some kind of harmless beloved tradition.

This is what you get when you announce you aren't going to prosecute "low level" theft any more.  Reap what you sow, but hopefully the people are paying attention and know to vote the prosecutor out next time.

Reduced prosecution and bail reform sounds good, until you realize why people were being prosecuted and held on bail.

I'm sure that's part of the risk assessment when picking a target.  The planning and logistics of the sprees will be interesting once it comes out.

No, I got the memo that they stopped carolling cuz they have more important things to do.

The sooner someone gets shot the sooner this crap will stop happening. Since people get shot everyday in the US we can just call it NBD, say they did a FA-FO, and get on with life, right?

You do not believe the actions (conspiracy, armed robbery, reckless endangerment with their getaways) are worthy of a felony and significant prison time?
