High-End Stores Looted on Ongoing Basis

George Floyd’s likely fentanyl overdose served as a pretext for lawlessness that has become the new normal in localities run by leftists. In New York City, tony stores are targeted on a regular basis by those greedy for what Black Lives Matter activists call “reparations.”

From the New York Post:

Bands of shoplifters are terrorizing Soho’s high-end boutiques, lifting hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of designer merchandise, and in some cases, threatening security guards to keep quiet — or be labeled racist, The Post has learned.

The disturbing pattern began in late May during the riots that rocked the city in the wake of the George Floyd police custody death. High-end Celine was looted of $1.5 million in merchandise then, and the blatant thievery continues “every week” in ritzy stores such as Prada, Moncler, Dior and Balenciaga, one plugged-in local said.

The police have been largely defunded and sidelined by Bill de Blasio. Not that everyone has the guts to call the police anyway. That could get you branded as a “racist.”

“If they [store personnel] stop them and say anything in the store before they’ve left the building then it often gets turned into a racial accusation,” the source said.

“Racists” are targeted by social media campaigns. Their businesses might be firebombed in the name of racial justice. Yelp is happy to help out with this.

NYPD Sgt. Joseph Imperatrice, founder of Blue Lives Matter NYC, told The Post that investigators are aware that “mobs of young, transient groups” have “bulldozed through aisles grabbing as much as their arms can hold.”

The era of Black Lives Matter is a golden age for criminals.

In the latest incident, thieves twice plundered Moncler on Prince Street — which sells down jackets for nearly $2,000…

In the first incident, two individuals grabbed nearly two dozen down jackets… A few hours later, at 6 p.m., thieves snatched “more than $50,000” in merchandise and sped off in a white Jaguar and a black Audi…

According to the MSM’s narrative, these people are impoverished as a result of systemic racism.

In the near future, all stores will resemble ghetto liquor stores, with the goods secured behind bulletproof glass. A society that reveres criminals like George Floyd, Jacob Blake, et al can expect no better.
