Looters Ransack Stores Across the Country, Former Cop Killed During Thanksgiving Week

California’s Bay Area has led the way with increased criminal activity, particularly robbery. Just last week a terrifying incident occurred at a Nordstrom just outside San Francisco, where witnesses say roughly 50 to 80 looters in facemasks with weapons such as crowbars ransacked the department store. A line of getaway cars waited for the criminals.

A Sunglass Hut at the Del Monte shopping center in Monterey, California was robbed by four individuals on Friday, who stole roughly $30,000 in sunglasses. The same day, “a group of eight between the ages of 15 and 20, stole crowbars, hammers, and other tools from a Lakewood, California, Home Depot, according to Fox 11,” reported Breitbart.

Fox 11 reported the suspects all fled the store in possible as many as 10 getaway cars parked outside. One of the vehicles was a red Mercedes Benz with severe damage to the front, which was later spotted by police officers; the four occupants were taken into custody.

When a KRON4 news production crew was covering a story on Wednesday about an Oakland robbery, the security guard who was protecting them was killed by assailants attempting to steal their camera equipment. The news crew was covering a recent robbery in which 12 thieves wearing masks and hoods raided a clothing store.

The victim was Kevin Nishita, a former policeman who left behind his wife, two children and three grandchildren. A $32,500 was offered for information that leads to an arrest in the homicide.

Similar stories occurred around the country. Minnesota’s metro area experienced “mobs of looters” at multiple Best Buys. According to the Star Tribune, the robberies took place shortly after 8:00 pm Friday. Police say the mob of 20 to 30 people rampaged through a Burnsville Best Buy, while a group of 10 to 12 that included “both juveniles and adults” hit a Maplewood store.

One man was fatally stabbed outside of a Houston Best Buy around 6:05 pm Friday.

Los Angeles and Chicago also experienced tremendous thefts not only on Black Friday but the entire week leading up to it. On Wednesday, a group stole designer handbags from a Los Angeles Nordstrom and made off with an estimated $25,000 in merchandise.

    If stealing less than $1000 worth of merchandise is a minor offense in California, the retailers should mark up all items to $1001.00 then offer a large discount when shown a valid ID to purchase.
