Anti-Shoplifting Vigilante Hero Arises in Portland

Video below the fold.

Some recent news out of Portland:

Walmart will close two stores in Portland -- both of their remaining stores -- laying off 580 workers.

I mentioned the other day that the hyperpolitical, now leftwing corporation Walmart refused to admit they were closing their Washington, DC store due to rampant shoplifting. They again refuse to admit that the Portland stores are being closed due to the Democrats' making theft-at-scale effectively legal.

Walmart told state and local officials today in writing it would close two Portland stores, one in Hayden Meadows that employs 201 workers and one at 4200 Southeast 82nd Avenue that employs 379 workers.

Employees were informed of the closures today and were told the stores would close March 24, with all employees terminated June 2.


Walmart did not cite a reason for the closures.

Although Walmart refuses to admit they're closing some of these stores due to Democratic indulgence of mass banditry, back in December 2022, their CEO predicted they might start raising prices and closing stores due to rampant shoplifting.

Walmart stores across the U.S. are grappling with an uptick in shoplifting that could lead to higher prices and closed stores if the problem persists, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said Tuesday.

"Theft is an issue. It's higher than what it has historically been," he told CNBC's "Squawk Box."

"We've got safety measures, security measures that we've put in place by store location. I think local law enforcement being staffed and being a good partner is part of that equation, and that's normally how we approach it," McMillon said.

Nike closes down in Portland, due to Portland Defunding the Police and setting the thieves upon them like locusts upon the fields.

Incredibly, Portland's antifa-loving mayor Ted Wheeler begged Nike to reopen. Nike asked in reply for Portland to finally assign enough police to the store to stop the rampant looting. Nike offered to pay for the extra police.

Ted Wheeler said "No."

No -- he just wants them to reopen, and accept that teams of bandits will be stealing all of their merchandise every week.

In fact, he said that it's up to Nike to stop the shoplifting, not his police.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has asked Nike to reopen its shuttered community store in Northeast Portland "on a limited basis," even though he says the city can't meet the company's request to detail off-duty police officers to provide security.

In his message to company executives, the mayor also revealed two broader strategies he thinks could help the sneaker giant and retailers like it minimize shoplifting...

Second, a plea for Nike and other retailers to do more on their own to prevent and help prosecute retail theft.

Wheeler outlined his proposal in a letter last week, in which he reiterated some of the reasons behind the city's dismal police staffing numbers and challenges clearing a backlog of new recruits who have yet to complete required training.


Wheeler's offers to Nike remain a far cry from what the storied Oregon company said it needs to keep the doors open at its longtime retail outpost in the city's historically Black Albina neighborhood.

Nike had offered to cover the cost of officers that would be assigned to guard its factory store on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, which it says has been riddled with crime and therefore mostly closed to the public for months.


Wheeler, who serves as police commissioner, confirmed in his letter to Nike that no Portland business benefits from the program these days.

"PPB does not currently have the capacity to offer secondary employment to any private business in the city," he wrote.

Wheeler's plan is for Nike to 1, instruct their own private security guards to capture and detain thieves, and then 2, bring charges against them.

Bringing charges against them does nothing, because Portland DAs and judges will just set them free.

So having someone's private guards execute violent arrests accomplishes nothing except opening up Nike to huge lawsuits, which they'll of course lose because Portland is pro-criminal, as well as retributive riots, lootings, and arsons at their store.

Meanwhile, squatters are terrorizing property owners.

A family in Portland is being terrorized by squatters who have set up camp next door and even set their property on fire.

Jacob and Beth Adams live next door to an abandoned home that has been taken over by several homeless people.

The couple has caught the homeless people overdosing and stealing from their backyard - but said the final straw was when the group set their property on fire.

'There are fires that have been happening off and on. Major ones. This recent one actually came and set our property on fire,' Jacob told Fox12.

The Adams' official neighbor, who is a Vietnam veteran, echoed his concern, adding that the squatters have made his living situation worse than his military deployment in Vietnam.

'I felt safer when I was walking around in downtown Saigon when I was in Vietnam than I do here in Portland,' Armand Martens, 83, told the news outlet.

And now, a hero arises.

Very rarely do you see anyone actively stop, or even try to stop, some of these shoplifters.

However, one mystery woman in Portland has quickly gathered a reputation as a shoplifter's worst nightmare. At this time, it's still a mystery what her name is or what craft store she worked at, but her TikTok alias goes under the handle "bworrrd" but lists her name as "B Word."

Her TikTok has only three videos uploaded, but each of them has sailed past one million views, including her first one which has a whopping 8.7 million. In each of them, the hero woman is seen stopping shoplifting women and commanding them to drop their stolen items, sometimes forcefully if need be.

The first video shows a pink-haired woman being confronted for stuffing her canvas bag full of stolen items. Initially, she agrees to give the items back but it's clear that she's intent on walking out with most of the items. "B Word" isn't having it and forcefully grabs the bag. During the scuffle, a woman threatens to call the police on "B Word" to which she replies "call them right now."

For some reason her TikTok account has been suspended.

I'll bet you they're claiming that her videos "glorify violence against marginalized groups." You know -- filthy disgusting thieves.

I could only find this copy of one her videos:
