BREAKING NEWS – San Francisco, California – San Francisco’s district attorney blasted the “culture” of lawlessness in the city and around the country, during a public safety town hall.
District Attorney Brooke Jenkins acknowledged the crowd’s concerns, and suggested the problem was criminals were not being held accountable in the city.
“Right now, we have a city that’s been lacking in accountability,” Jenkins told residents, who reportedly cheered in agreement. “We have created a culture, not just in San Francisco but quite frankly around the country, that people (believe you can) walk into a store, take what you want and walk out, while the rest of us stand there waiting to pay.”
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a different take on the shoplifting in San Francisco. “The problem isn’t with people stealing in stores, the problem is the people standing in line staring at the thieves, making them feel uncomfortable about what they have stolen which creates low self-esteem. I’ll bet there are lots of shoplifters in therapy, prompted by demeaning glares from insensitive patrons that were paying customers.”
