While I've been busy working a regular job like a sucker
for the past 35 years, these criminals have been upping
their tactics over the last eleven years and making bank.

Going from shoplifting a few pairs through the art of distraction,
to now bum-rushing and smash-and-grabs.

As long as I wear nerd glasses rather than designer frames,
these thugs won't steal them right off my face, right?

Nothing new, the culturally rich and vibrant hit a store en masse. If the store employees intervene, they get pepper sprayed by the thieves for their troubles. Designer eyeglass frames are $$$ and you can steal alot of them.   Thanks to PC policies, many stores won't life a finger or call the Police until after the thieves have left. They just write it off.  Its also a great way to cover employee theft or "shrink" too.  

Elections have consequences.

Maybe it’s me, but if I were the store owner I’d have a couple of very well trained Malinois’ on “duty”…attempt to do a smash and grab…let’s see how fast you can run.

At some point it will get “real” and the store owner will have had enough and take issues into their own hands…will be interesting…
