Problems in San Francisco

The security guard made one mistake — in the video it looks like he tied to grab the garbage bag.

if the poor downtrodden oppressed person fell as a result of that, or got his feelings hurt, that would be a huge lawsuit, BLM nationwide protesting in front of all Walgreens with justified mass scale looting.

The corporation would settle for millions.

The poor just-a-hair-above-min-wage security guard would be personally sued to bankruptcy, and would be forever unemployable.

As I told before, in the mid-90s I worked retail in several major chains, and even then it was corporate policy not to do anything about the shoplifters — $100s worth of stolen merchandise vs. 100s $1k of lawsuits and medical bills.

The rot is deeply set in, and spread very far, up and down the chain.

"Nuh uh" is not a thoughtful debate point worth responding to.
Neither was your incredibly weak attempt at the Hooters analogy. But I did respond.

I vaguely recall my last attempt to motorboat a Hooters gal...I think it resulted in a black eye but my memory is a bit vague on that point. :razz:

The Gov should just tax Silicon Valley a few billlion and give the money to WallGreens and CVS to keep the stores open

I dont think he was store security, but rather off-duty TSA, so expecting "law enforcement" from him might be a bit of a stretch.

Walgreens Now Closing Stores In San Francisco Following Retail Theft Spike

“Due to ongoing organized retail crime, we have made the difficult decision to close five stores across San Francisco,” Walgreens announced on Tuesday.

“Organized retail crime continues to be a challenge facing retailers across San Francisco, and we are not immune to that,” said Walgreens spokesman Phil Caruso. “Retail theft across our San Francisco stores has continued to increase in the past few months to five times our chain average. During this time to help combat this issue, we increased our investments in security measures in stores across the city to 46 times our chain average in an effort to provide a safe environment.”

“I am completely devastated by this news – this Walgreens is less than a mile from seven schools and has been a staple for seniors, families and children for decades,” said San Francisco Supervisor Ahsha Safai in a Twitter thread posted Tuesday afternoon. “This closure will significantly impact this community.”
