A mob of people ransacked a 7-11 store earlier this week after taking over an intersection. Surveillance footage shows looters screaming, climbing on the counter, destroying the security screen and throwing items at each other.
They emptied the supermarket shelves, taking as many items as possible. The convenience store is located near Figueroa Street and El Segundo Boulevard, and surveillance cameras captured the incident.
Looters seized cigarettes, lottery tickets, bags of crisps, drinks, and emptied shelves of merchandise. According to the Daily Mail, LAPD Detective Ryan Moreno expressed concern: “We really don’t want this to become a new trend.”
But LAPD data shows it’s become a trend. Armed robberies have exploded in Los Angeles, with a 17.2% increase from 2021.
Even Democrats are frustrated with anarchy, California Rep. Rudy Salas introduced a bill that would lower the amount a thief can steal without it being a crime to $400. Anything over that would be a felony, which would be a reversal of Proposition 47. Proposition 47 was passed in 2014, reducing the penalty for certain thefts of property from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Salas said: “Enough is enough, we have to fight back against the criminals who are stealing from our communities. We have seen the unintended consequences of the weakening of our theft laws by Prop 47 and I think California voters are ready to speak up again on this issue.
Californians have left the state in droves, and those who have stayed are asking for help in fighting the lawlessness on the city streets.
