‘Peaceful Shopping?’ Social Media Riled as Public Warned Not to Call California Crime Wave 'Looting

Social media users have mocked “woke” criminal experts for urging the public to steer clear of referring to a spate of Bay Area, California, burglaries as “looting.”

A gang of about 40 robbers were filmed smashing display cases at a Sam's Jewelers in Southland Mall in Hayward on Sunday, while other groups stole looted a drug store. Another gang was seen grabbing garments from a Lululemon store in San Jose, according to KPIX.

However, experts interviewed by a Bay Area news station, including a professor of criminal justice and an ex-cop, said the incidents should to be called “organised smash-and-grabs.”


“This seems like it's an organized smash and grab robbery. This doesn't seem like looting,” Martin Reynolds, co-executive director of the Robert C. Maynard Institute of Journalism Education, stated.

Another expert, ex-police officer Lorenzo Boyd, PhD, professor of Criminal Justice & Community Policing at the University of New Haven, also underscored that the wording mattered.

"Looting is a term that we typically use when people of colour or urban dwellers are doing something. We tend not to use that term for other people when they do the exact same thing," said Boyd....

When I was in Africa, I noticed the difference between the locals and British born black tourists. Like night and day.

Kind of struck me funny....how are black english people considered to be africanized-americans.....probably part of that "man in a dress" turns you into a chick crowd way of thinking.

I don’t know where that came from, because I’ve never heard of it.

Not happened yet. But they’ve enforced existing restrictions. Utter misery.

I thought of jigsaw puzzles.
