As “progressive prosecutors” have taken over in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Baltimore and plenty of different one-party cities, retailers have needed to regulate to the truth that their cabinets could be and have been cleaned out by shoplifters and nothing goes to be carried out about it. The info that retail theft remains to be a criminal offense outlined by the legislative department, and within the mixture causes very substantial financial losses, simply don’t register (or don’t depend). There may be additionally the truth that it’s driving companies out of already “under-served” (and nearly at all times minority) neighborhoods, however that too doesn’t depend. When the companies take flight, they go away behind now-unemployed staff and a sometimes deprived buyer base with a skimpy and shrinking collection of options.
Then after all there’s the truth that the indulgence of rampant stealing is the calling card of — how shall I say this? — devolving requirements of decency that mark the decline of a corrupted society. However I wouldn’t wish to be so old school as to bemoan stealing just because it’s dishonest and corrosive to the fundamentals of civic life. As a substitute, being a capitalist, I wish to spotlight how shops have adjusted to the brand new actuality.
