On 7-18-20 Mr. Stone was shopping the Walgreens at 790 Van Ness Avenue a little before noon, close to City Hall, when the event he describes occurred. He is right about policy. The mayor's policy is that looters will not be arrested. I'm so glad I moved away from my hometown.
I just walked into Walgreens as numerous people were walking out with bags and baskets full of stolen items. I guess you could blame Walgreens because they usually have a security guard and today there was no guard but it sickens me that a guard is needed at all times. Pretty much all the hair products were stolen and some of the thieves were moving onto other aisles. A clerk was yelling at one of the looters and threatening to call the cops but he didn’t care. There is less law and order in this city each day and the fact that no one is concerned about it is more than upsetting! I thought about trying to step in and help but if Walgreens doesn't think security is needed at all times and the cops may not show (because of policy) then I guess I shouldn’t care. May have to start doing my shopping in another city.
