The crook ended up easily bicycling past the guard — who attempted to snag the bag to no avail — and exiting the store in broad daylight.

Check it out the video:

What are the details?

Lyanne Melendez, a KGO-TV reporter, was shopping in the store on her day off — and she’s the one who recorded the above cellphone clip.

“That’s when he sort of ran into me with his bicycle,” Melendez told her station in the aftermath. KGO said she was not injured.

“It’s hard for me as a journalist to say ‘I won’t be involved, I can’t get involved,’ I have to be sort of neutral, but this is also my city,” Melendez added to her station. “I live in this city, and I see this constantly. Not only Walgreens, but cars, and my garage … has been broken into twice.”

The brazenness of such crimes is common these days, KGO said, and they’re driving retailers out of the city. Indeed, the station said that while three people recorded video of the theft, it didn’t deter the crook — who cruised down the aisle past the guard and got away with his entire haul on a Lyft bike.

TheBlaze reported about a similar theft at a San Francisco Walgreens last year involving a couple filling up backpacks with store items as an employee helplessly watched.

Melendez told KGO that she’s witnessed three out-in-the-open shoplifting sprees at different Walgreens in San Francisco: “At what point do we say, ‘Enough is enough, we want our city back’?”

Stores closing

The station said stores are closing in the wake of such thefts, which drive down profit.

“Seventeen Walgreens over the last five years, almost every Gap retail outlet is gone, CVS is under assault,” San Francisco Supervisor Ahsha Safai told KGO.

The station said Safai held a hearing last month on organized retail theft, and he said District Attorney Chesa Boudin and the police department need a much more coordinated response.

“It might even involve a more aggressive effort when it comes to surveillance cameras, because you see the same individual hitting multiple locations, then you can begin to have deeper conversation about bringing multiple charges, or aggregate charges against that individual and really start to break this up,” he told KGO.

Safai added to the station that he’s seen some success at a Walgreens in his district that uses uniformed off-duty police officers to guard it. He added to KGO that Boudin and the SFPD have until mid-July to respond to his letter of inquiry on organized retail theft.

Anything else?

And if you’re hoping Boudin will respond positively to Safai’s letter, you might want to place your hope elsewhere. The far-left DA came into office in 2019 with a promise not to prosecute things like prostitution and public urination. In fact, just two days into his term, Boudin fired seven tough-on-crime prosecutors in order to get his progressive agenda off the ground.

FBI gun ICE Intelwars New York City Protesters Security Guard watch

VIDEO: Security guard pulls gun on protesting mob that stormed lobby of New York City federal building

A security guard pulled a gun on a mob of protesters that stormed a New York City federal building that houses the FBI and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the
New York Post reported, citing video posted to social media.

Image source: WABC-TV video screenshot

What are the details?

The video, which was recorded Wednesday afternoon inside 26 Federal Plaza, shows a female guard who works for a private firm Paragon Systems pointing a gun at protesters who had breached the lobby, the paper said.

“It got intense,” another guard told the Post on Thursday morning. “We are out here every day putting our lives on the line so that everyone else can be safe.”

Here’s the clip, which was originally posted to Instagram:

The paper said about 100 demonstrators marched for 90 minutes to the federal building — and it all stemmed from a recent whistleblower complaint that immigrant women detained in Georgia received hysterectomies without consent.

Police told WABC-TV that the Abolish ICE demonstrators forced their way into the lobby of the building.

More from the Post:

Protesters — some carrying signs reading “ICE & DHS agents of genocide” — occupied the lobby, clapping and chanting as they squabbled with news photographers, incorrectly claiming that they were not allowed to take their photos without “consent.”

The walkway leading to the building was spray-painted “FREE THEM ALL” and a security booth was tagged “QUIT YOUR JOB!!” as a lone officer sat inside it.

And the doors at its Duane Street entrance were smashed and covered with plywood Thursday.

The paper noted that the incident involving the security guard pulling her gun occurred toward the end of the protest and demonstrators left in about 20 minutes.

The Post said that neither Paragon — which provides security at federal buildings around the country — nor ICE immediately returned messages. But the New York Daily News noted that Federal Protective Service said the incident is under investigation.

So far no arrests have been made in the incident, WABC reported.

Intelwars jerry lewis Madd head Mask Murder Security Guard

Security guard charged with murder after shooting customer who entered store without wearing a mask

A California security guard is facing murder charges after authorities say he fatally shot a customer in the back following an argument about the customer entering a store without wearing a state-mandated face mask.

The victim, Jerry Lewis—a famous 90s rapper known as Madd Head—had reportedly walked into the store while waiting for a tow truck after getting a flat tire.

What are the details?

The Daily Mail reported that security guard Umeir Hawkins, 38, was working security at the Green Farm Market in Gardena, when Lewis, 50, entered the store and was stopped by Hawkins for not wearing a required face covering. The two men became embroiled in an argument that became physical.

Lewis left for a short time and then returned, and another fight broke out between the two. Hawkins’ wife, Sabrina Carter, 50, had been waiting for her husband’s shift to end and became involved in the altercation. She allegedly pointed a handgun at Lewis and other customers in the store, police say.

As Lewis turned to leave again, Hawkins allegedly pulled out a separate firearm and fatally shot Lewis in the back.

According to KCAL-TV, Lewis had stopped into the store while waiting on a tow truck after getting a flat tire on his vehicle.

The outlet noted that “Lewis was also known by his rapper alias ‘Madd Head.’ He gained popularity in the 1990s for one of his songs, ‘Pimp’n Ain’t Ez,’ which was featured on the ‘Beavis and Butthead – Do America’ soundtrack.”

Fox News reported that in addition to Hawkins’ murder charge, he and Carter “were each charged with one count of possession of a handgun by a felon, stemming from a prior conviction in 2013 for assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury.”

Bail for Hawkins was set at $1 million, and he faces a maximum sentence of 50 years to life if convicted. Carter’s bail was set at $35,000, and she faces up to three years incarceration.

Calvin munerlyn Family dollar Intelwars killed Mask Security Guard shot

Michigan security guard shot and killed allegedly over asking customer to wear a face mask

A Michigan security guard was fatally shot on Friday over what prosecutors say was a dispute that was sparked after the victim asked a customer at a Family Dollar store to wear a face mask as required under the state’s coronavirus orders.

What are the details?

The
Associated Press reported that Calvin Munerlyn, a 43-year-old father of eight, was working as a security guard at the Family Dollar in Flint when witnesses say he told a female customer that her daughter — who was not wearing a mask — would need to wear one in order to be in the store. Muerlyn and the woman ended up engaging in a verbal altercation.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton told the press that the woman, later identified as Sharmel Teague, 45, then spit on Munerlyn and was forced to leave.

Teague left the premises, but roughly 20 minutes later, her husband, Larry Teague Jr, 44, and son, Ramonyea Bishop, 23, arrived at the store and confronted Munerlyn. According to Leyton, Larry Teague accused Munerlyn of disrespecting his wife and Bishop then shot the security guard in the head. Munerlyn died at a local hospital.

NBC News reported that Sharmel Teague, Larry Teague, and Bishop have all been charged with first-degree murder and other charges in connection with Munerlyn’s death. Sharmel Teague has been arrested, but Bishop and Larry Teague Jr. remain at large.

On Sunday night, roughly 150 people in the Flint community joined Munerlyn’s grieving family in holding a candlelight vigil in memory of the beloved husband, father, and son.

Tina James, a cousin of Munerlyn’s, told WJRT-TV of the slain security guard, “He will be sadly missed. He will truly be sadly missed. Our parents grew up together and our kids grew up together. This was just senseless—over a mask! Over a mask, I don’t understand it.”
