What do migrant surges and smash-and-grab lootings have in common?

American Thinker:

By Monica Showalter

The sudden appearance of smash-and-grab mass lootings has left a lot of people perplexed. After all, who the hell would do that sort of thing? We know that such people are aware that they won’t be punished, but that isn’t the full story. Most of us wouldn’t do that kind of thing no matter what the incentives. We’re the kind of people who return an extra dollar to a store clerk because honesty is natural and compassion is our way of life — we don’t want the clerk’s drawer to come up short at the end of the day. We live our social capital. 

The people who engage in organized smash-and-grab lootings have an entirely unrecognizable mentality. Sure, they’re likely fatherless. And sure, they’re likely religion-less, with zero exposure to morality. It’s natural to wonder if these people were raised by wolves and kept in some sort of den to come out like vampires now that Chesa Boudin is running the district attorney’s shop in San Francisco. The phenomenon doesn’t add up.

Actually, between basic absence of morality brought on by social chaos, and the knowledge that one will never be punished for one’s crime, there’s an intermediary cause, an activator of this these mobby crimes. more

  1. If I were a Democrat or Nancy Pelosi I’d say Trump.
    But since I’m not, I’ll say
    Democrats,
    Nancy ‘insider trading queen’ Pelosi,
    Gavin ‘magic hands, word salad’ Newsom,
    George ‘zero bail’ Gascón,
    Eric ‘yoga pants’ Garcetti,
    Adam ‘crazy eyes’ Schiff,
    Chuck ‘The Schmuck’ Schumer
    etc.

  2. When 15% of of a nation’s people are amoral savages, once those people get the idea that they CAN get away with it, they’ll do whatever they please…and under today’s “crime? what crime?” Democrat urban regimes, they’ll suffer no consequences whatsoever. All upside — including the thrill of malevolent destruction — and no downside!
