Interesting their race is mentioned this time by LE I assume…. I don’t care for Dick’s since they abandoned support of the 2nd Amendment but the crime is terrible.

Ricardoh January 23, 2023 - 2:35 PM - 2:35 PM

They have no courage to stop them. What do they expect? I’m sure they hurried right past the guard who probably told them, “Have a good weekend”.

Angry American January 23, 2023 - 6:06 PM - 6:06 PM

agreed. It is up to them to provide security…. O wait a minute… they don’t like guns so security must be mental health counselors.

Chicken Little January 23, 2023 - 6:23 PM - 6:23 PM

Kinda makes you wonder about those 3 juvenile males…

America January 23, 2023 - 6:53 PM - 6:53 PM

Right. They don’t mention the race of the “ jueveniles”

Willis January 24, 2023 - 5:31 PM - 5:31 PM

That’s when you know they’re non-white. Social engineering at it’s best.

Dean January 23, 2023 - 10:35 PM - 10:35 PM

They didn’t mention the juveniles race only the white female very interesting.

Dawg January 23, 2023 - 2:26 PM - 2:26 PM

They get what they vote for….silly liberals.

Jen January 23, 2023 - 6:02 PM - 6:02 PM

You people are just something else, you just can’t provide any real substance it’s always blaming and playing the victim.

TheGOM January 23, 2023 - 10:54 PM - 10:54 PM

we DESPISE liberals.

Rollo Tomasi January 23, 2023 - 11:37 PM - 11:37 PM

@Jen – as opposed to the real substance you’ve offered here?

Angry American January 24, 2023 - 5:01 PM - 5:01 PM

curious what you mean by always blaming and playing the victim? no one her is playing the victim? The general consensuses here is the perpetrators race is not disclosed (should not be necessary in a balanced society). History of late has shown us that if things do not fit a narrative then they are left to subjection. There has been too many news stories with wishful thinking that white MAGA radicals are the sole reason for the ills in this country and when it is not a white MAGA radical the race simply disappears from the headlines. I think this is where the curiosity and implication of race takes place. Oh crap….I may have to dumb it down as I believe I am likely speaking to someone that would rather go outside and eat dirt than admit they were wrong.

The Fearless Spectator January 24, 2023 - 8:35 PM - 8:35 PM

Well put. Although they aren’t eating dirt.
It’s “Earth”, which is a distinct philosophical difference in the mindset of a nut. As an example, when consuming a macrobiotic salad, “earth” is apparently an acceptable ingredient.

Commonsensenor January 23, 2023 - 2:27 PM - 2:27 PM

I haven’t shopped there since they went all “woke” with gun sales. Funny how 2nd amendment states are not “inundated with shoplifting” problems. Someday the blind may stumble into the white elephant in the room and vote out the liberal loons funded by Soros. Or, they just won’t have anywhere to go shopping because all the retailers left for Texas.

Ricardoh January 23, 2023 - 2:37 PM - 2:37 PM

You did notice they did not mention the race of the three juveniles? That’s equity.

Exit 12A January 23, 2023 - 2:40 PM - 2:40 PM

Retail is NOT a victimless crime: prices go up, quality-of-life goes down, criminal acts beget other criminal acts, businesses leave, etc.
Brazen acts of theft is a DIRECT RESULT of lax laws and weak enforcement.
Let’s all thank soft-on-crime State legislators, liberals, and progressives, and the “woke” who voted to reduce the threshold for felony prosecution.

Dr. Jellyfinger January 23, 2023 - 2:44 PM - 2:44 PM

@ DOMO ~ The race of the three juvenile males was not mentioned…. I can’t imagine why not…. but dang! we gotta do something about these “heavy set” white female adults and couples shoplifting too!
But descriptions need to be more specific, clothes, hair style, height, distinguishing marks or characteristics… Race alone does not give enough detail.
Also, I agree with you about Dick’s since they don’t support their shooting sports customers & for that reason I do not shop there for anything.

3 January 23, 2023 - 2:50 PM - 2:50 PM

If a description was given we would have posted. Police did not provide a description.

Cowellian January 23, 2023 - 3:10 PM - 3:10 PM

(1) I don’t shop at Dick’s.
(2) The authorities seem to be hesitant about mentioning certain descriptions but not others.
(3) Stealing is wrong.

WC January 23, 2023 - 2:53 PM - 2:53 PM

My wife and daughter watched some dude walk right out the door with a set of expensive golf clubs years ago, No one did one thing, not even yell at him.

That said, they went woke, and now they can go broke. I haven’t been in Dick’s since they went anti-2A.

Joe January 23, 2023 - 3:20 PM - 3:20 PM

it’s ridiculous, but many companies have a strict policy about stopping thieves. Safeway, I’m told, will actually fire an employee that interferes with a shoplifter. The reason being is that several employees have been killed over the years by interfering. Then the families bring huge lawsuits against Safeway. From a corporate standpoint, it’s cheaper to let them steal. Again, ridiculous. And god forbid a thief gets hurt in the act of stealing, then THEY suddenly become a victim. My god, it’s infuriating.

Ricardoh January 23, 2023 - 7:59 PM - 7:59 PM

Thats funny because two days ago I was leaving Safeway and there was a young armed guard there at the door and I asked him they had shoplifters. He said there were and I asked do you stop them and he said yes. Countrywood.

nytemuvr January 23, 2023 - 8:58 PM - 8:58 PM

@JOE..…Fifty+ years ago I busted a high school girl stealing a pint of liquor, her parents were called and they picked her up from the store. That night going to my car after my shift I got jumped by her brothers with a crowbar. Three stitches inside my mouth and a couple more on my head, from that point on I didn’t care what anybody stole.

Joe January 26, 2023 - 2:05 PM - 2:05 PM

that sucks. It’s crazy, isn’t it?

Original G January 23, 2023 - 3:23 PM - 3:23 PM

Have never set foot in Dick’s. with their woke BS never will.
This is soft on crime CA where if it’s under $950 it’s basically free.
Does DA even pursue misdemeanors ? ? ? ?
If there is no threat of incarceration,
there is no deterrence to criminal behavior

PESFG January 23, 2023 - 6:37 PM - 6:37 PM

Under $950 you say!? Well, from the looks of it, it’s more like $950 is the minimum.

Cordero Michael January 23, 2023 - 3:23 PM - 3:23 PM

Today every store has multiple security cameras. They have cameras that would show these individuals entering the store walking around inside the store and leaving the store with merchandise. Would it be simpler just to post a pictures of the six individuals with close-ups of their faces? I have a feeling nobody wants these crimes solved. The store doesn’t care, and if they don’t care why should the police officers when they know these people will never be prosecuted. And who can blame him why do a lot of hard work when nothing is going to come about it? The store will make a report the police officers will make a report and it will get buried in a file someplace. Meanwhile insurance company will have to pay up driving up the rates for other consumers. I say let’s see the pictures, that dicks has of these crimes.

MikeyV January 23, 2023 - 3:43 PM - 3:43 PM

Yup – Dicks is woke. This is what they want, right?

It’s funny at least.

Anonymous January 23, 2023 - 4:17 PM - 4:17 PM

So, the police give the race if the shoplifter is white, but not if the shoplifter is black. So, one can assume anytime race is not mentioned, the shoplifter is black. See how that works?

PESFG January 23, 2023 - 6:42 PM - 6:42 PM

What makes you think that lack of description automatically means they were Black? They could as well have been Hispanic.

The Fearless Spectator January 23, 2023 - 6:56 PM - 6:56 PM

Perhaps they were Jamaican. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Original G January 23, 2023 - 4:26 PM - 4:26 PM

Wouldn’t it be a hoot if insurance companies refused to write policies for retail businesses in CA ? ?

Silky January 23, 2023 - 7:02 PM - 7:02 PM

Valid point. I suspect that insurers are already applying the appropriate policy adjustments for theft in this area. For those of you wishing new businesses other than Starbucks and discount stores to open in this area, I’m sure theft is a consideration for those businesses and franchises. No Olive Garden for you!

Bayslashers January 23, 2023 - 4:28 PM - 4:28 PM

Instead of hiring adequate security, Dick’s spends their $$ on reimbursing travel expenses of employees that travel out of state for abortions.

The Wizard January 23, 2023 - 5:26 PM - 5:26 PM

It all about the dolar, cheaper to kill the baby now than pay benefits to mom and the baby.

Oh, please January 23, 2023 - 8:15 PM - 8:15 PM

I would rather pay for forced sterilizations for a lot of people…

Chicken Little January 23, 2023 - 4:36 PM - 4:36 PM

I’m sure that’s got to be hard on Dick’s, but I guess you reap what you sow.

nytemuvr January 23, 2023 - 4:48 PM - 4:48 PM

I hate it when Dick’s get hit hard.

liloleme January 23, 2023 - 4:49 PM - 4:49 PM

My son lives in Idaho, working retail. He told me that it now not uncommon for shoplifters to use bear spray on the employees! Very scary, and nothing they can do but hope they don’t get sprayed.

NoMoreFreeRide January 23, 2023 - 5:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Bring the Dome Back!

Why can’t these businesses have an armed security guard checking receipts at the exit, like Costco and Walmart, although the aforementioned 2 places don’t have armed personnel. I remember several years ago, visiting a coin dealer in Reno, where ALL the sales people were openly carrying.

Original G January 23, 2023 - 7:33 PM - 7:33 PM

‘George Soros and his empire of woke DAs: How billionaire has spent $40m helping to elect liberal officials in thrall to loose bail laws and sentencing’

Jasaka January 24, 2023 - 9:44 AM - 9:44 AM

Serious question…

Choosing to not sell guns = “woke”?

Rollo Tomasi January 24, 2023 - 2:07 PM - 2:07 PM

@Jasaka – Dick’s formerly sold long guns and ammunition. They changed their policy for reasons other than low sales totals. So define what you think “woke” is, then decide for yourself.

Ricardoh January 24, 2023 - 9:46 AM - 9:46 AM

The liability laws could be changed to help the merchants. It seems are laws are protecting criminals. Not too long ago you could be hung for stealing a horse. The good old days.

American Citizen January 24, 2023 - 10:43 AM - 10:43 AM

They went woke and abandoned the second amendment. Have not set foot in there since and they reap what they sow. It’s not called “Dick’s for no reason.

Tangent January 24, 2023 - 2:48 PM - 2:48 PM

Here’s a simple reason. A Security guard costs Say $40K per annum.
Dick’s does not care about losing upto that much and more..and they’re covered by insurance.
