Just as with New York, I no longer consider California to be part of the United States.

I’d say it’s unbelievable, but nothing from CA surprises me anymore.

We are the ones ultimately paying for all this. Manufacturers and retailers will simply jack up the prices of their products to cover these losses. So will insurance companies for significant $ home break-in thefts and shippers/expeditors to cover their claims.

They may not be part of the US - but this shit will ultimately impact everyone.

Some of that footage would make for some great mid-term campaign commercials.

And California leftists will still deny there is a problem nationally with their party’s policies and ways of doing business.

If people like wallowing in shit, that's their business. They'll have more of it than they can handle before this decade is out.

And I. Don't. Care.

That is insane. It blows my mind how people in that state can keep blindly plowing ahead with this crazy leftist utopian tripe when the evidence of how disastrous it is, is all around them.

When I worked for BNSF we had to be careful not to stop east bound intermodal trains in West Memphis as thieves would target containers carrying that seasons hottest X-Box or PSwhatevernumber. A train carrying 300 containers and the only one broken into would be the high value one. Think it was an inside job from someone at the port who knew which container to hit?



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

I used to have a sense of pride to know that I was born and raised in CA, the 60's - '70's.

It's such a shame to see what it's become.
But, as the saying goes, you reap what you sow.

Yes. That was just an example of one high-profile theft of 111 guns in transit from Ruger.

The article talks about how it's a frequent occurrence, it's just not usually large amounts of guns that are stolen, and the railroads have little incentive to invest in prevention/deterrence since they're insured.

As with any crime, if there are no consequences to getting caught there is no reason to stop doing it for criminals. It is mind boggling to see our great country rot away. Enjoy your utopia because from this Tennessean it looks like y’all want to recreate Venezuela.

A big part of the problem is they're so concerned with national issues and their own theories of discrimination and 'social justice', that they fail to address, acknowledge or, even deal with the actual problems right under their nose. Any pushback from any corner critiquing or, bringing attention to a situation within their own world, is immediately dog-piled (with media support) as a racist, white-supremest, Trump-supporter, privileged, entitled, etc...

See the latest with San Francisco's mayor, calling out white progressives. In the Overton Window of Leftist hierarchy, she's a moderate but, still Left, those she's speaking about are VERY Left.

IIRC, theft from an interstate shipment is a federal crime. So... where is the FBI?
