Dozens of restaurants and retail businesses across San Francisco are boarding up their storefronts with plywood, lending the normally lively retail corridors a feeling of neighborhoods about to be slammed by a hurricane, rather than one under siege by a pandemic.
“When the times get tough, the tough gets going,” that’s the way Evan Kidera, owner of Señor Sisig describes a video of his restaurant getting vandalized two days ago.

On Monday, the sound of hammering cut through the empty streets as work crews boarded up windows on closed businesses. Luxury retailers like Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Gucci were temporarily outfitted in plywood boards — inspired by fears of vandalism and looting.

Construction companies keep getting calls to board-up more businesses because for many, covering a glass or door is less expensive than losing what’s inside.
“Just close everything, close the doors the windows, and board up everything. We don’t want any accessibility to anybody. People are desperate right now to protect their businesses,” said Edri.
The interesting fact is that the police have not reported any incidents including looters.
But the sad reality is that Pelosi’s San Francisco is sinking every day and the reason is more than obvious, their democratic leadership and the brazen act that come to life 5 years ago!
While our mainstream media is focused on how President Trump is handling the “China” virus, Pelosi’s San Francisco is going down.
The streets of San Francisco look like a scene from a zombie movie.

In San Francisco, this isn’t anything new but with all this hysteria around the Coronavirus, sights of people looting the stores are happening regularly.
For looters in SF, it’s even easier to operate.

The Democrats in San Francisco have also made theft under $950 a misdemeanor & cops won’t even arrest you for the crime.
Not surprisingly, this has had very predictable results.
It turns out if you tell people they won’t get arrested for stealing, it’s like a free pass to go shopping.
The brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from a felony to a misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more “serious” crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.
Over 59 percent of all California voters approved of Proposition 47. San Francisco voters alone voted in favor of it by 80 percent. They brought this upon themselves.
