Store owners should go over there and shoplift their stuff back since there is zero chance that they will get arrested.

Meanwhile in Japan you could ride your bike to the train station, leave it there unlocked, and no one would steal it. If you asked them why they don't steal, they'll tell you it's unconscionable.

All the retailers should raise prices on each item up $1000 and then have coupons at the register you scan that takes $1000 off each item. Then, if you steal one item, it meets the requirement to prosecute since it was $1000 on the shelf tag.

I feel so sorry for the shop owners. Shutdown your stores and move to a red state and restart your businesses.

I'm shocked that letting criminals back out on the streets isn't working. Just shocked.

Well when you decriminalize shoplifting, what do you expect?

Wow. A tv reporter can figure this out and even find the sellers at a flea market. Yet the whole police force is baffled and can’t catch the slow witted criminals.

This really makes me angry. I work in a supermarket. On nearly daily basis people come in and load up hand baskets, shopping carts and even shopping bags and run out of the store. Our security is one man who is lazy and also spreads his work days among several area stores in our chain, so he can't be in more than one place at a time. Only store security can apprehend anyone. Other personnel can only report what they see. We literally have shoplifters pause at the door and sarcastically say thank you as they run out. A small victory recently: a major repeat shoplifter who was hitting our store and others in the area and who got us for an estimated $25,000 was arrested. He was in a different state and was pulled over for traffic stop and when warrants came up he was arrested.

Hi: If you are from outside of California this story never mentioned Proposition 47. Prop 47 came from George Gascon and San Francisco. It raised the theft limit to $950 before the crime becomes a felony. It eliminated theft with a prior, which means every time a person steals it is the first time, it made possession of stolen property and second degree burglary misdemeanor (cite and release depending on jurisdiction) offenses. While it was sold to the public by academics and journalists as a way for people to get back onto their feet and was meant to relieve the burden-weight of conviction...in reality it's nothing more than turning a blind eye to crime. Yes, retail theft is down. That means they've lost confidence in the criminal justice system and don't want to waste their time waiting for a purposeless report. Mayor Breed knows better but was also convinced the solution to a problem is to do nothing.

Watching the mayor claim they will go after the perpetrators is literally hilarious. The city politicians created this problem. It is obvious the city politicians have no desire to solve the problems they created.

I feel like retail stores need to have the same security as banks. These stupid kids just do whatever they want and walk away without consequences, it’s both sad and angering. I was robbed by a teenager in broad daylight and I honestly felt sorry for him that he’s throwing his life away for petty crime.

100% return on their “investment”. Why wouldn’t criminals steal things? They know they won’t get in trouble. Until something is done about theft this will keep happening.

The second level impact of just letting this happen makes it just plain evil. Whoever has decided to allow this is literally destroying the city. And they know it. And they don't care.

Almost every video that you see of people committing these crimes fit a general profile. Its ashamed that people who do this have no moral conscious and respect for others property than this. I can imagine how they would feel if someone rushed into their homes, grabbed everything and just ran out. The moral decline of this nation is beyond belief.

Just like conventions & tourists; I hope ALL Walgreens, Safeways, and Target stores leave the city. It would be pointless for these stores to stay open under the model of stocking store shelves only to have the items shoplifted. Once these stores pull out, residents will start to pull out too. Let San Francisco become like Detroit. When it comes to the city of San Francisco trying to generate taxable revenue, it wont come from the tourists, conventions, big tech, and retail businesses. It will lead towards a bigger tax hit against the residents who will eventually end up moving out of the city. In the next few years, San Francisco will become a completely failed city and the housing market in SF will plummet.

How can the mayor stand there and say that they will be prosecuting these criminals, when nothing happens when the shoplifters leave the store with trash bags full of loot?
