White House liar Pinocchio Jen Psaki was at it again Thursday when she was asked by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy about the wave of scumbag criminals who are looting stores and causing chaos across the world of retail.
“When a huge group of criminals organizes themselves and they want to go loot a store—a CVS, Nordstorm, a Home Depot—until the shelves are clean, you think that’s because of the pandemic?” Doocy asked Psaki, who then earned her paycheck by lying straight to Americans.
“I think a root cause in a lot of communities is the pandemic. Yes,” she concluded.
It’s no wonder why average Americans are so jaded and sick and tired of politicians and their scumbag appointees who say these things.
Right there on the front page of today’s New York Times is a report on looting of stores and how the problem evolved from what went on after the George Floyd riots and destruction to what we’re seeing now in 2021.
“Looting in general started during civil unrest, and it has now evolved,” said Ben Dugan, president of the Coalition of Law Enforcement and Retail, a trade group focused on crime at retailers. “Criminal organizations saw during civil unrest that they were able to get their hands on millions of dollars of stolen product very quickly.”
Pinnochio Psaki, who knows exactly what’s going on and still wants to play dumb, thinks you’re stupid enough to think that looting gangs are hitting up Walmart for burgers to feed their children.
The lib libs will counter and say that the looting gangs are hitting up stores for big-ticket items to sell and then turn into cash to buy groceries. Again, they think you’re stupid and will fall for such nonsense.
Feeding America has 60,000 food pantries across the United States. In 2020, the charity distributed more than 3.6 billion meals. In Columbus, OH this week, the Mid-Ohio Food Collective told the Dispatch, “We’re not turning families away,” even as supply chain issues persist.
In early November, a man and a woman walked into a Columbus grocery store, smashed a kiosk, and ran out with $5,300 in stolen cellphones. In total, the man stole nine phones. Over a Columbus Kohl’s store, three able-bodied female suspects pulled off a felony theft where they went after men’s and women’s activewear and toddler merchandise.
And in mid-November, the Columbus police warned citizens of a group of teens dubbed the “Game Over” kids who are pulling off robberies and carjackings that number in the “dozens.” The group is credited with 26(!) incidents at the same Kroger location. In a November incident credited to the “Game Over” kids, police say a 13-year-old boy attacked a 76-year-old woman and her daughter who were loading gifts into their SUV. The 13-year-old stole the SUV with the 43-year-old daughter in the SUV, but she was thrown out onto the pavement.
The boy then led police on a 100 mph police chase.
Police say this group has committed 250 crimes and one of the teens is up for 23 felonies.
Yet there are zero mentions of hunger or the pandemic driving the Columbus chaos. There aren’t community leaders shouting on the local news that people just need a meal and that’s why they’re stealing $5,300 in phones. Local youth advocates aren’t screaming at city council meetings defending these teens, saying that the pandemic has driven them to attack old ladies.
What are people doing with the stolen goods? Selling via online marketplaces.
In November, Nashville police arrested a woman for selling stolen Titans jerseys she had ripped off from the team’s official store. Police gave her the option of returning the jerseys to the team store and they would move along. She agreed and then never returned the jerseys.
Cops showed up and arrested her on a felony theft charge. It was her 27th charge in Metro Nashville court since 2016.
