San Fran mayor’s plan to combat flash mob looting will limit access to stores ahead of holidays

The Democrats running San Fran have made it clear—they will continue to protect criminals and looters.  To do so, they will limit he time stores are open to sell goods for Christmas.  No wonder stores, companies and families are fleeing this home for criminals.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that the city will limit car access to the city’s popular shopping district, Union Square, in response to the mobs of thieves that have ransacked high-end stores in recent days.

“We’re going to be making some changes to Union Square and how cars are able to access,” Breed said at a press conference Saturday. “There will be limited access in terms of when you come to this area.”

Breed’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment for details on the changes. Local media reported it’s unclear when the changes will be implemented, and if they’ll come right as the holiday shopping season is set to pick up following Thanksgiving on Thursday.

Limiting store hours, limiting customer access—all in an ever to collapse what is left of the economy of San Fran.  This is how you create a Third World City—turn it over to the homeless and the criminals.  If you are a parent that has children still living in San Fran, I would suggest that is child abuse.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that the city will limit car access to the city’s popular shopping district, Union Square, in response to the mobs of thieves that have ransacked high-end stores in recent days.

“We’re going to be making some changes to Union Square and how cars are able to access,” Breed said at a press conference Saturday. “There will be limited access in terms of when you come to this area.”

Breed’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment for details on the changes. Local media reported it’s unclear when the changes will be implemented, and if they’ll come right as the holiday shopping season is set to pick up following Thanksgiving on Thursday.

San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott added during the press conference that law enforcement’s presence in the area will be increased “for the foreseeable future.”

San Francisco and the Bay Area were repeatedly hit by mobs of thieves over the weekend, including on Friday night in Union Square. Multiple people broke the windows of a Louis Vuitton in the city and “emptied out” the store of its high-end merchandise. Eight people were arrested in connection to the incident.

San Francisco police said that nearly 12 stores in the city were attacked by a mob of at least 80 people this weekend alone.

In Oakland, about 12 miles from San Francisco, at least two dozen businesses were ransacked over the weekend, according to the city’s police chief.

The rise in the crimes, which has overwhelmingly been described as “organized” by local police, comes after the Bay Area has already been grappling with repeated incidents of looting and smash-and-grab incidents in recent months.

Most notably, the city saw a staggering increase in car break-ins, with the Central District alone reporting a 753% increase in such crimes from May of last year to 2021.

Some police and retailers pointed to California’s Proposition 47 for the increase in crimes, which reduced shoplifting charges regarding the theft of $950 or less from felonies to misdemeanors.

In 2018, state legislators passed a temporary law in response to complaints surrounding the law, which established a new crime of organized retail theft. A California Highway Patrol task force was also created to help assist areas with high instances of such crimes. The law expired at the start of this year, however, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Gov. Gavin Newsom also weighed in on the rampant crimes, calling them “unacceptable. Period, full stop.” He also noted police presence is increasing in affected areas.

  1. I’m about to post a known factual truth and I’m sure that it won’t be politically correct, because this country doesn’t like to face reality with some people and this needs to stop, because if it doesn’t happen (which I doubt it ever will) and that the black who run cities do very poorly and those cities become 3rd world like countries pretty much poor black people living in once nice homes that are now in bad conditions and it continues to be the same in every city managed by black politicians, and instead of facing the truth, it’s responded by oh! you are racist, no I am not blind I can see clearly what is going on and it’s pathetic, and I don’t know if they were chosen because they’re black and, but they are just not equipped to run a city or are there better black candidates and for whatever reason they are not elected, and it’s clear to me now that the white politicians are afraid of black people because they are more disruptive with their protests that are only disguised as stealing and destroying property, I never in my 62 years have ever seen a massive protest of white people stealing and destroying a city, this country is falling to the worst low of all time, and I stopped being a proud American, especially when we have a circus of people running this country into the ground and enjoying doing so, Iand just wait until China decides that it’s time to take over this embarrassing country, which China won’t have too much trouble in doing it, all we have to offer is a country filled with overweight/obese people who don’t have discipline for defending our country.
