California’s Prop 47 is being blamed for a sharp rise in shoplifting and home burglaries. A shocking video shows a team of females on a shoplifter spree at a Walgreens in San Francisco, a Democrat stronghold city.
The video shows two females wearing black hoodies and face masks, emptying store shelves and throwing makeup into black garbage bags as Walgreens employees look on helplessly.
The shoplifters flee when an employee calls 911 to report the robbery in progress. But critics of the law say calling 911 is a waste of time.
Even if cops caught them in the act, they can’t arrest them if the stolen items are worth less than $950. That means criminals can each steal over $300,000 worth of goods annually in California.

Even the homeless are taking advantage of the lax law enforcement in California. They steal beer and anything else that it isn’t locked up behind glass.
A single mom told Fox News that Prop 47 is a godsend for low-income women with children.
“If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it. They aren’t out here arresting people for (shoplifting) and everyone knows it.”
Twitter users expressed their anger and frustration at Democrats and liberal lawmakers who give thieves a license to steal without consequences.
