One San Francisco merchant has called crime “atrocious”, after thieves stole from luxury shops and others in the area. The thefts took place over several days. Gump’s owner John Chachas joined “Fox & Friends” to discuss the crime wave and share his concerns as a business owner. 

“My concern as a business person is you don’t have a functioning environment anymore when you have people outside of the city who are afraid to come to the city because of rampant crime… and grit and filth,” Chachas explained. 

SAN FRANCISCO MAYOR’S PLANS FOR COMBAT FLASH MOB LOOTING WORTHS CONTAINING ACCESS TO STORES AHEAD DURING HOLIDAYS

At least 12 shops were vandalized over the weekend. One of them was the Louis Vuitton store in Union Square. This shop was apparently “emptied out.”

Chachas explained that today you can steal as much as nine hundred ninety-five dollars of goods. It’s also a misdemeanor and those doing the stealing know that the police won’t do anything. 

“If they took action, it is unlikely that the district attorney will prosecute,” he said. “So, until things get back on track to being law-abiding societies, this is just another example of the chaos you invite.”

London Breed, San Francisco’s Mayor, announced in response to weekend chaos that the city would restrict access to certain areas to curb rampant looting. 

San Francisco police lieutenant Tracy McCracy also discussed the crime wave on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, arguing criminals have “no fear” of partaking because of the city’s soft-on-crime approach.

McCray said, “It’s more than just prosecution. It’s also convictions.” You are convicted of any felony if you’re arrested for it, even if the case is pled to a misdemeanor like the D.A. did before… and if you get convicted of a felony, you go to jail.”

McCray noted that thieves who are issued citations get “released immediately,” encouraging criminals to engage in organized mob-looting. 

The police presence in San Francisco will continue to be increased, according to Chief Bill Scott of the San Francisco Police Department.

Chachas stated, “It destroys your business. We’ve been required to board up our store twice in the last twelve months.” “It’s outrageous.”

Chachas said, “We’re open” and that people are welcome to visit. San Francisco is home to us. Gump’s has been in San Francisco for a century and sixty-five years. But, frankly, it seems that the city leadership has lost its way.

Reports indicate that there were at least 80 individuals who participated in mass looting San Francisco’s streets over the weekend. These officials call the event “organized”.
