Foot Locker workers confront flash mob robbers, L.A. plans to crack down on flash mob robberies (Video)


Los Angeles plans to crack down on smash-and-grab robberies that plague the city.

A Foot Locker store on Melrose in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles was the latest scene of a brazen robbery on Wednesday, Aug. 23.

Foot Locker employees chased after a gang of thieves who grabbed boxes of sneakers and clothing and fled to a waiting vehicle.

Cell phone video uploaded to shows Foot Locker workers confronting the thieves in the street outside the store.

Boxes of sneakers were scattered in the roadway as the robbers hopped into a car and fled the scene. One Foot Locker employee nearly fell under the wheels of the getaway vehicle.

Smash-and-grab robberies have become a daily occurrence in Los Angeles and other Democrat cities where criminals are released without paying bail.

Los Angeles Police Protective League spokesperson Tom Saggau told Fox News:

The elimination of cash bail for these types of offenses is really an invitation to these kind of folks who are inclined to break the law and inclined to do it so brazenly.

Last week city officials said they are cracking down on the rampant theft. A new task force is being formed to prosecute anyone participating in organized smash-and-grab robberies.

The task force, consisting of 22 investigators, was formed after the brazen flash mob robbery at a California Nordstrom department store.

Retailers such as Target, Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods stores report a plunge in profits.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. blamed “organized retail crime” for the company’s stock plunging 23% on Tuesday.

One Disqus commenter says the government is encouraging crime to force law-abiding citizens to stay home and shop online.

Government is encouraging the crime in retail stores because government doesn’t want us to gather together for commerce. They want you to stay at home and order online.

In this policy area, the goal of government is for the retail stores to close. It’s on purpose and design. The corporate physical store retailers don’t have enough political power to stop it because Amazon et al has more political power and is winning this battle.
