Can you imagine if you were shopping in that store when the mob showed up?

It’s been lawless since they allowed rioting in 2020 with few consequences.  Politics aside, any business that was destroyed by rioting and looting and arson is a victim. Anyone who lost local shopping due to mob violence is a victim. What happened to all those people living in those areas who have no place to shop anymore?  I can’t even imagine what I would do if my local stores were all boarded up.

Not really, but my first gut instinct would be to pick up an item (preferably an inexpensive one) and exit the building with them as the safest retrieve.

Then, once you're outside of the building, proceed directly to the police and return the stolen item. The less expensive the item... the better chances are that the police will believe you because you actually returned it!

Even if you're caught leaving the building... the inexpensive item will work in your favor if you explain that your intent was just getting out of the building unharmed.

FWIW

Why take anything? Why not just leave?

I would hide. How can they be sure they wouldn’t get arrested they are the only ones left in the store when the police arrive?

It’s enough to make innocent people start shopping exclusively online.

It's $950 in California and the store should permanently close. This one hasn't yet, but other companies have closed stores in San Francisco. Until the voters stop voting against their own interests, these and other crimes will increase.

Move, before they were ALL boarded up.
