That low life woman that torched the store people need to find out where she lives and torch her geto house. Why bother trying to catch them when we all nothing will happen. California is a joke…sad times we’re living in This crap is getting OUT OF CONTROL Hope they're happy with stolen candy and cigarettes

jemelehill this you? More ofthose damn MAGA supporters causing all the problems This is the LA the blue “majority” voted for. Defund police, catch and release and schools locked down held hostage by unions. Society needs law and order with consequences for even “petty” crime for a reason. “Progressive” politics at its best here. So sad in my hometown.

Something is seriously wrong with some people.... Losers bums Another mostly peaceful looting 🙄 Shoot them, it's the only language these criminals understand. Unfortunately, it's only legal in many other states😎

Los Angeles flash mob loots, vandalizes 7-Eleven following street takeover, police sayA large mob in Los Angeles was caught on video looting a 7-Eleven store where an employee had food thrown at him, police said. How come none of these looting videos ever have white supremists doing the stealing. Maybe we should consider the real danger to our society. That's all they understand. lol this is so funny. you get what you listen to for information, and who you vote into office. the governor of the state is at fault for this just because he allows it

This looks just like the Capital getting mobbed by all the Trumpers 🤔 Losers. It’s ok 7-Eleven has fake card scanners taking our card info Seems like a certain element is almost 100% responsible for this, but it won't be acknowledged. And it will get worse and worse, it practically compounds daily at this point.

calling traffic barrel, we need assistance on aisle 7 🤣TrafficBarrels There’s not enough punishment for this kind of stuff here in LA. It’s like a free for all. Keep voting left of the left and this will continue What is our world gone to Looter stealing from people that are hard working people . And where are the Police they should have Patty wagons out there are just loading up those people shooting them if they have to what they're doing is breaking the law

The sad part about all this it will GROW, because our economy is putting more people into desperate actions in the future, 35,000 +foreclosures, rent hicks, loss jobs inner city about to erupt, maybe store clerks need GUNS like Schools? prisons are WAY Overcovered and violent !! their lives dont matter. at all.

Close the front door locked them all there and you know the rest ( can’t mention in tweet otherwise I will be band)

Footage shows ‘flash mob’ of looters ransack 7-Eleven in Los AngelesSnacks, drinks, cigarettes, lottery tickets and more were stolen by flash mob that ransacked a 7/11 in Los Angeles. black power So what, the sheriff is in a gang itself and with the laws we have we can't do anything about it, so this is just a thing and the sheriff is probably the cause, or the LAPD Totally fake because VanJones68 always says on CNN: “it’s only white kids getting away with horrible things every day.”

To ABC7 news reporters, abc7marc: Has it occurred to you that crime in LA has skyrocketed due to Progressive Policies? The night before, you covered the Sheriff showdown between Alex Villanueva, LACoSheriff and Robert Luna. 1/2 Wait let me GUESS it got close to y’all EDOMITES in Mid-Wilshire now y’all worried 🤨🤨🤨 notmyneighborhood buddy! 🤓

Is a shame because 7-11 is really the only business that is willing to go into these neighborhoods. The neighbors themselves should be turning these little cretins in or they’ll be no convenience stores left in these communities. We need fix our educational system JennyChachan More disturbing signs of the society disintegrating. End of Times as we know them are coming. It’s already mostly window dressings.

Need to catch who they can & take away anything that they own. Clothes, toys, cars, food and donate it all to boy and Girl Scouts… A bunch of trash right there!!! Sadly this is why most cities go to shit because of this type of lawlessness… Stations like yours pushed for this with defund. Thanks guys! Time to shut down

Remember this when you vote for your next mayor, continued chaos or a change.

Police: American flag set on fire outside South Philadelphia homeAuthorities are searching for someone who they say lit an American flag on fire outside a South Philadelphia home. One things for sure. Brittany Griner has a rock solid alibi.

Shits about to get WILD AF these coming years 🤦🏻‍♂️ I can’t believe LA didn’t recall Gascon- REVIEW ALL REJECTED SIGNATURES White supremacy is out of control!!! Purge day across all America. When. Can you lead with arrest rates this time? Democrats turn everything into shit That's funny... like the media cares about 'catching the looters'. The media is a huge cause of this nonsense!

DanMcCaughan Teach a man that he is entitled because hate whitey, and he'll act entitled for the rest of his freaking life. animals we need Robots in stores & schools to smack dummies in the face to stop this nonsense.

15-year-old boy fatally shot in Little VillageAfter he was shot Wednesday night in Little Village, Benjamin Ortega, 15, rushed himself to the hospital, where he later died.

Someone lifted up a large rock...look what came out from under. Shame on this ppl… had to be of course BACK & HISPANICS. Generación de INEPTOS I don’t know why the cops don’t block in the cars that blocked them from getting there. Then just give huge tickets to everyone there watching. Another looting carnival. Some poor franchise owner just had his life ruined by scum who think they don't need to work for a living. Retail is going to be murdered by looting.

👂🧏‍♂️ Lots of BLM that I can see. Put to armed guards in every 7-11 md allow them to ——- sorry can’t continue because our fascist Twitter overlords will suspend me. Just need to have hand grenades drop from the ceiling in situations like that. Clean up the bodies/body parts when it's all over. There is no economic or social-justice rationale that justifies this sort of criminal activity.

Lawless democrat state,what a shame Trash not great to be back

Bystanders shot by Denver police shocked by body camera videos, disappointed in police responseThree innocent bystanders shot by Denver police while standing outside a LoDo bar last month want the Denver Police Department to publicly apologize for their injuries and announce a plan to make s… How ridiculous. What kind of police department?! I also heard they lied on the police report. KamalaHarris CNN FoxNews BarackObama WFSBnews y’all see this

Wow a bunch of losers, and no surprise the color here. You are doing this to yourself. That’s there own neighborhood, very sad. Black lives matter...most of them are black, some probably Hispanics. This is sickening. What is wrong with people They do the racial profiling to themselves. Thank you California politicians!!

And the punch line: 'the push to catch the looters.' 🔑 🗝 MY REBEÉLLIOUS PEOPLE 🔑 🗝 MI GENTE REBÉLDE. WE AÁLL KNOW WHAT AROUND THE CORNER.. These are simply thugs and we need to place germ in jail…the problem is Gascon - people need to vote these people out of office if they want crime to go down! And franchise police does not allow franchises to have firearms to protect themselves. Duh it’s a free for all.

Black lives matter of course. This gives them a free crime card to avoid any legal liability.. Every one of these animals should be taken out by the police.

We have a drastic shortage of police officers,' said Austin Police Association President Ken Casaday. Shocker Paid for story by the only guy FOX 7 quotes, the Police Union boss? Dirty 6th sucks but the city just needs to rezone it to run off the sleezy establishments and move homeless services out of downtown, not more cops johnnyk20001 Wondering how this happened?

Poverty Man Made, creates Crimes! You wanna go to juve for a Butterfinger? Lmfaooo that foo behind the counter just throwing shit 😂😂 2 Timothy 3:1-5 NIV 1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control,

I look at this neighborhood mob and recall the instinct of healthy animals: They won't 'foul' where they eat. This is now a dogpile, and they want to live where they made it? Man! All that for some free Taki’s? What a bunch of punks! I hope they catch every last one of them….🤬 Double the police force in LA then fill the jails with these animals!

... reverting to type, perhaps? Bunch of animals. All of them!

I like to play 'spot the future criminal' when I pick up my grandson from 4th grade. It is 105° outside and about 30% of the 9 year olds and wearing 'hoodies'. They should just be preemptively locked up. Very difficult indeed Fucking low life THUGS!!! I look at this neighborhood mob and recall the instinct of healthy animals: They won't shyte where they eat. This is now a dogpile, and they want to live where they made it. (?)

A bunch of worthless lotto tickets California is the state of anarchy! Gen Z at its finest Why is it always asian people doing this? But when stores refuse to operate in certain areas they call them 'food deserts.' Where will these 'underprivileged' people shop then? I guess the owner does need a AR-15! 🤨

JennyChachan Diversity, equity, inclusions(DEI) are being taught right now in some public schools they are victims of a racist society and should go full commie. LA deserves this and MSM is responsible it all started with the BLM riots Gosh, Los Angeles, have you learned enough to stop voting Democrat yet? Nah? I hope you wallow in your misery!

Blame Gascon simple as that Reparation for being enslaved even though not one of them was or were ever enslaved except by their own stupidity Animals. This is why certain individuals should not have children. There once were police to control this kind of shit. No more. Anarchy def: “state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority”. This is George Gascon’s vision of ‘progressive’ criminal justice reform. It will get worse.

JennyChachan This must have been very frightening for the clerk. We need serious help! Lowlifes

Defunding the police is not working 🤦‍♂️ welp I don’t want to hear crying when someone son,daughter,brother,or tio/tia ends up shot play stupid games get stupid prizes. Just saying JennyChachan But isn’t the weather FANTASTIC… honestly, id rather see this than gun violence. Atleast nobody was harmed here.

Just shut the store down Economy in decay in full action How's that DemocRat Super Majority taste right now What’s the saying? society is 9 meals away from anarchy. This is a preview of what’s to come when the poor get poorer Omg, this is terrible …What an ugly world we’re living in now … so brazen, no shame at all, think they are entitled to this and that and taking innocent lives on this path of destruction . God help us all 🙏🏼

Wow….kinda reminds me of something! 🤔

Third worlders gonna third world. All blacks and browns. LOL. There are no consequences to crime in CA even if they are caught nothing will happen to them. Residents like it this way that's why they vote for it, their criminal families get away with murder. At some point it'll be too much but not yet GeorgeGascon has blood on his hands!

Lmao how broke you gotta be to steal some backwoods 😂😂 Won’t happen in China This is 100% a MAGA false flag operation to sway the mid-terms and distract from DFT’s pending indictment No need in spreading concern about looters GeorgeGascon has no interest in charging anyone for these crimes. 94_til lets goooo!

When do we the people get to protect our property? This is no fucking good cigs_and_wigs And yet Gascon celebrates, as asthegirlturns shows RedState

They should go after Target. Leave my pizza and hot dogs alone at 7/11! “The push to catch the looters… just to release them again after a couple of hours.” It’s a abhorrent really the absolute worst behavior I’m so embarrassed for our public officials we need some serious changes. 👀 Oh well some of those Pakistani treat people like shit karma is a bitch

The fat guy probably felt like he was Charlie at the Willy wonka factory with all the free candy Get rid of Gascon George Soros activities. This plus-size person couldn’t even balance himself there. 🤣 JennyChachan You can thank the liberals who passed Prop47. Parents must be proud

wth is wrong w people. Next time we need to vote for our “state and local government. remember… they have voted to keep jails at all time low, so crimes like this become misdemeanors. We keep voting for less police presence and get upset because when you call them, they don’t respond. try not to be such losers.

Doesn't seem like a very diverse crowd. Something should be done. 🤔 George Gascon's people. This is what happens when voters elect G.G. This world is going to shit! It’s not safe anywhere these days Ah yes, equity. What would you do for a Klondike bar? Could have walked away with a free hot dog reepermccain

Nothing brings Blacks and Hispanics together like looting

Nice What’s happening to society? If Any of my friends get involved in this nonsense I’m going to snitch on your ass straight. LA such a shit city, nothing but embryo’s Where’s BLM now? Smfh what a disgrace And people in south LA wonder why every outlet closes stores in the area. CaRmEnCiTaH562 Demons in meat suits.

LosAngeles California selfdefense NRA gunrights smallbusinessowners respectful citizens take back your towns. makecitiessafeagain BackTheBlue Get rid of GeorgeGascon and GavinNewsom. Yet the Nachos are still good and big bites

Defunding police 🚨 how is it working out? South California Deplorable Glad GeorgeGascon somehow didn’t get recalled. LA deserves every bit of this. Decades of democrat policies hard at work. 7-11 stole $173M in wage theft and made billions in profit last year. What ever you do, please don't vote in any Republicans. OnePartyState DemocratStrongState!

Turns out not prosecuting criminals gets you more of this .. who knew Once again... Californian=trouble Is this what we have become? Sad we have lost respect, humanity and have become savages!

When entitlement no longer gives you what you want. pure trash. hope they identify all and put them in prison. sorry not sorry..
