    ...but lately the amount of seemingly ordinary items—soap, ice cream, detergent—locked up in stores—CVS, Best Buy, Home Depot, etc—is increasing. If you don't see this where you live yet, you might soon. Or you might visit parts of America where it has become commonplace....Who’s doing the stealing? “Three categories,” says Lisa LeBruno, senior executive vice president of the Retail Industry Leaders Association. “There’s the opportunistic shoplifter, the persistent habitual offender and then organized retail crime gangs or ORC,” she says. ...“Organized retail crime has definitely been ticking up over the last few years,” says Mike Combs, director of asset protection,...

  • Havoc in Havertown: Police increasing patrols after groups of kids cause "ruckus" in Delaware County

    09/28/2022 5:49:59 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 31 replies
    HAVERTOWN, Pa. (CBS) -- It's not just happening in the city. Groups of kids are causing havoc in Havertown. They're attacking other young people for no apparent reason, and they're creating a panic in the Delaware County town. Police are fed up, saying this will not be tolerated. They're increasing their patrols to track them down. CBS Philadelphia spoke with one parent whose son was attacked. In that incident, it was 10 teens on one, them delivering blows, punches and kicks. Police are working to identify the people responsible and promise arrests will be made. Groups of teens have created...

    With crime on the rise, Republicans are hammering their opponents as Democrats fear "defund the police" policies will turn off voters. Democrats' virtual 180 on the issue of crime — a journey from supporting the "defund the police" movement to espousing tougher law enforcement — has been accentuated by a striking pattern in recent months: prominent liberals being mugged, sometimes quite literally, by the harsh reality of rising crime as victims themselves. The latest liberal to embody this shift is Bill Walton, the 69-year-old basketball legend-turned-garrulous broadcaster, who has a history of stirring controversy and advocating a range of progressive...

    Conflicting timeline reports and identical language used by numerous officers in separate reports raise questions.. A 104-page report issued three months after the events at the Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021, said the Capitol Police’s Civil Disturbance Unit (CDU) was ordered by supervisors not to use “heavier, less-lethal weapons,” like flash bangs. However, video evidence—along with Capitol Police Use of Force Reports obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times—exposes conflicts in timelines, the brutality of the unprovoked attacks against Jan. 6 protesters, and how leadership ordered the deployment of munitions on a peaceful crowd. The Video Evidence.. Victoria White.. According...

    A crew member working for “Law & Order: Organized Crime’’ was fatally gunned down at the TV show’s Brooklyn set early Tuesday — in a shooting that could have been pulled straight out of the script, authorities said. The victim, a 31-year-old married dad of three, was sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle on N Henry Street near Norman Avenue in Greenpoint around 5:15 a.m. when another man suddenly opened the driver’s side door and blasted him, officials said. “It was crazy,’’ said a distraught colleague of the victim, who worked for NBC parking vehicles at the show’s...

    America is reeling again at the news of yet another mass shooting, this time resulting in 10 people dead and 3 injured. In particular, the Black American community is reeling, since they were the particular targets of a depraved White teenager, allegedly a self-professed White-supremacist. How can such a thing happen in this day and age? Innocent Black Americans having their blood spilled by an evil White man? Yet the evil in this young man’s heart goes deeper still. It was not just Black Americans he targeted for murder. He was a Jew-hater as well, actually calling for Gentile Americans...

    "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."Justice in a free country is an important concept. Around the globe, there are countries that still carry-on atrocities to this day – China being one of them with Uyghur concentration camps – and there is no punishment brought down on the ones responsible. In America, when we think about justice, we think about an individual who commits a crime and is later arrested by the authorities. Eventually, they go...

    It’s no shock these days that when liberals and leftists don’t get their way, they ignore facts, shrug off civilized debate, and revel like spoiled children in hyperbole, intimidation, threats of violence, and actual violence. Given how dangerous this stuff is, they’ve ignored history, too. “Men have been barbarians much longer than they have been civilized,” wrote journalist Walter Lippman in The Public Philosophy (1955). “They are only precariously civilized, and with us there is the propensity, persistence as the force of gravity, to revert under stress and strain, under neglect or temptation, to our first natures.” Democrats have butchered...

    A 38,000 trucker convoy is heading to Washington, DC, from Los Angeles to protest pandemic mandates just in time for President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address on March 1. Kyle Sefcik, organizer and leader of the Freedom Convoy USA 2022, told WUSA CBS 9 that he is scheduled to leave Los Angeles on Friday and drive to D.C. The peaceful convoy will be composed of trucks and motorcycles and does not intend to gather at the Capitol. Instead, the convoy will protest near the White House and the National Mall with Christian bands and preachers.

    A month ago, it was a free country. Then, its little Mao felt threatened and, suddenly, the gloves are off and the rule of law is gone. One of the hallmarks of liberty is a reliable legal system. In totalitarian countries, one of the ways you control people is to keep them perpetually off-balance. The law and its application are utterly unpredictable. People become paralyzed and dare not do anything that might offend the regime, lest they get destroyed. And that’s what we’re seeing in Canada, where the newly dictatorial government is making no pretense of abiding by the rule...
  • Trudeau's trucker crackdown begins: Hundreds of cops backed by armored vehicles and horses start arresting Freedom Convoy protesters in Ottawa and towing their big rigs as they use powers granted by Emergencies Act

    A police force of hundreds has descended on the Freedom Convoy truckers in Ottawa, Canada, making arrests and towing away big rigs that have formed a three-week blockade protesting the country's vaccine mandates. Using Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's extraordinary powers under the Emergencies Act, police have established a 'no-go' zone around the demonstration in Ottawa's core, and on Friday morning a massive force of cops and a fleet of tow truck drivers began clearing out the Convoy's final stronghold. Citing the 'exceptional circumstances' of the police action, Canada's Parliament suspended Friday's debate on Trudeau's emergency powers The crackdown came after...

[cut] Members of the press gave the police chief some mild pushback on his claim that his men have acted with restraint, with one asking “with respect, sir, can you explain what appears to be excessive force by police officers when a protestor is arrested; there is multiple videos...

    Recently, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau essentially called Melissa Lantsman, a conservative member of the Canadian Parliament, a swastika-waving Nazi. This wasn't just the usual disgusting and preposterously hysterical hyperbole employed by leftists. This was particularly egregious, as Lantsman is a descendant of Holocaust survivors. But in what passes for the mind of the prime minister, she had to be savaged because she dared to defend the truckers who are protesting his draconian mandates and increasingly brutal police-state actions. Trudeau said of his fellow public servants, "Conservative Party members can stand with people who wave swastikas; they can stand with...
