The Looting Will Stop When Store Owners Can Shoot On Sight
In the upside-down morality of the left, it is perfectly acceptable for criminal gangs to target high-end stores free of consequences. At once ascribing poverty, immoral historical legacies, and contemporary systemic racism, we are supposed to believe that what is happening is actually a form of justice.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
There is no moral or humanitarian justification for the now-daily shoplifting and burglary sprees witnessed time and again in various California cities and across the country. Are the black youths hungry? Are they robbing a grocery store? Are they impoverished, thereby stealing the jewelry to sell? Or, are they simply products of a failed culture that are protected and encouraged by malicious political actors?
It should be as simple as saying that stealing is wrong. If it is not yours, don’t take it. If you want something, earn it.
It is a crime in and of itself that the criminal justice system allows this perverse form of social engagement to continue. As was seen in Waukesha, Milwaukee County’s John Chisholm, while not directly responsible for driving a car through a parade, is still responsible enough for not holding Darryl Brooks to account on decades of societal harm. Soros-funded DAs in San Francisco and Los Angeles – Chesa Boudin and George Gascon, respectively – lead the way in ideologically-driven and mind-numbingly corrupt policies that reward the evildoers and punish the law abiders.
Clearly, expecting our elected leaders to solve a problem they very much created with intentionality and have no interest in solving is a moot and fatalist approach. In any event, we should minimally rely on the government in its best moments.
The solution to rampant, unchecked criminal enterprise is the understanding that no one – regardless of their position in the intersectionality hierarchy – has the right to violate another person’s God-given, natural rights. Among these rights are life, liberty, and property. The logical extension is that all human beings have a right to defend such inherent rights.
And by any means necessary.
