Shrug, itís a fact. Why does that bother you?
Another fact: crime happens everywhere. Not a story.

This is the second post of yours today that started 'Shrug'. Do you have a problem with your shoulders or is that your way of admitting you don't understand the point of threads you're reading?

I'm thinking it has to be the latter, but could be both.

San Franisco has alot of issues, I agree with that part. But some people are using it as an attempt to make San Francisco their "whipping boy". I used to work in the city of Atlanta. Alot of crime goes on there. While the murder rate has been dropping, it's still higher than San Francisco. And theft is a rampant problem in Atlanta. I've been a theft victim both in Atlanta proper and the suburbs (on a college campus no less). Atlanta is one of the worst cities in the USA in terms of car theft.

And then we must consider all the murders in that liberal city called El Paso. Oh, wait a second do they count if motivated by Trump?

My first reaction: "Why did you leave $1,000's of dollars of equipment in full view for the thieves to steal when you just had the speaker and the purse stolen out of another car?"

There is only 1 individual responsible for those murders. The individual pulling the trigger. The same as any other gun related crime. By your logic we should be blaming the mayor of Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, SanFrancisco, La, Phili etc for every single act of violence and or crime. It's your logic and that by many on the left.

So when a woman is raped whose fault is it?

When gang bangers do their drive by shootings?

When Father Elmer rapes the choir boy?

Why were they so soft on the brazen idiot who smashed and grabbed??? They should have also had police involved to arrest the idiot once they tracked him down, instead of just interviewing him. That's why these people continue to do stuff like that because they get away with it or get a slap on the wrist.

Especially since it was more like a social experiment rather than a setup for police. If they had, had police involved, I could see them doing something elaborate like they did. But to track them down just to interview them and shame them into returning the stuff was pointless

All this proves is that the crew were either unlucky, or took a significant risk. San Francisco has the 15th highest crime rate in the country and is the number 1 city for property crime. However, California also has some of the safest cities in the country. There are criminals in every state; it all depends on where you go.
