Residents of San Francisco Leave Car Trunks Open To Prevent Smash-And-Grabs

How sad is it that residents of one of America’s most iconic cities have to leave their cars unlocked for criminals?

According to the Daily Wire:

In the robbery-infested areas of San Francisco and Oakland, California, some residents are so fearful of having their cars broken into that they are deliberately leaving their car trunks open so robbers won’t shatter the windows.

“We see the aftermath of car break-ins all too often. Windows smashed, glass shattered, but now some people are getting so fed-up they’re leaving their trunks open, hoping that will at least spare them the hefty bill to get it fixed,” ABC 7 reported.

People have even posted signs on their cars begging, “Please use the door,” or “Please Do Not Break Glass!! Nothing Inside!!”

Oakland’s Deputy Interim Police Chief Drennon Lindsey, apprised that people were leaving their trunks open, admitted, “It doesn’t really surprise me.”

The SFPD has reported that 2021 has seen a 32% increase in car break-ins and 25% increase in auto burglaries compared to 2020. In Oakland, 2021 has seen a 27% increase in both categories over 2020.

I don’t know how people can keep living in these cities…

Democrat policies have absolutely ruined them. Yet we’re seeing an influx of Democrats move out of these cities and states. They’re moving to red states that don’t have these issues (like Texas), and they’re going to vote politicians into office that think the kinds of policies that are implemented in California will be good for society.

Just like the idea of socialism, they believe that these policies actually do work, and they just haven’t been done correctly.

Maybe Democrats should start to look at their cities for what they are: a complete and utter failure in policy.

The policies have failed because they simply don’t work (and never will).

Believe it or not, if you don’t have consequences for criminals, then they’re going to continue to engage in criminal activity.
