"If I Was the Deep State"

Leftwingers, like Frank Luntz, are shrieking hysterically.

So, another day that ends in -y.

Unrelated: LibsofTikTok dropped by Eric Swallowell's orifice.

I previously wrote about the Walgreen's in San Francisco that had taken to securing its refrigerated displays with chains and padlocks to combat the constant, more-than-12-times-per-day cases of open, brazen theft.

CNN sent a unit there to conduct a half hour interview -- and saw the Walgreen's get robbed three times in just thirty minutes.

Here's that video:

By the way, Walgreen's corporate ordered that store to take down the chains and padlocks -- claiming it sent the "wrong message" about Walgreen's respect for diverse methods of acquiring another's possessions.

It wasn't the company itself that ordered this store to chain up the frozen pizza and ice cream. The reason the chains on the frozen food looked a bit out of place is because the employees came up with that on their own. Once it made the local news last week, corporate told them to take it down because it sent the wrong message. The wrong message in this case is basically the truth about running a retail business in San Francisco.

The chains on those freezers tell a pretty interesting story. Think about it. You've got employees who are sick and tired of having their workplace robbed a dozen or more times a day. They are not allowed to intervene or they'll be fired. They are the ones unpacking boxes full of frozen food and stocking those freezers only to see a platoon of thieves come through each evening and treat it like a Las Vegas buffet. They got so tired of it that, without corporate approval, they put up the chains.

If Walgreens corporate knew this was happening and knew this was the worst store in the entire country for shoplifting, why weren't they proactive? Why did the employees feel they had to act on their own? I think the answer is that big corporations care more about bad PR than they do about the theft which, on a balance sheet for the entire company, is probably just a rounding error.
