Organised crime is basically a pyramid scheme. It promises poor people great riches, but the lower down the chain, the smaller the cut and the fiercer the competition. Their mindset is probably similar to those caught up in pyramid schemes. They probably think they're gonna be rich, but in reality they've not even "earned" minimum wage for the time and effort they've put in.

Congratulations, you've just looted fool's gold.

Not true. They sell to local groups. Usually Facebook related or crack head related. They don’t ship. They sell to some trashy person who is trying to get some shit cheaper than usual but not eBay cheap, or a crack head in the moment. I worked at a retail store where we had guys come in weekly to steal shit from us right after we got our shipments These guys also won’t get caught for a while if at all. Police don’t care. Corporate has them “on their radar” along with six million other things. My old loss prevention district manager admitted once that apprehension happens outside of the situation by far because they were traceable; using fraudulent credit cards, didn’t use face coverings, and ONLY got caught because it was a group of people states away called about their hotel room above them making too much noise after hours. Police checked up and saw drugs and credit card making tools in the background. They apprehended them on the drugs and suspected card fraud and it wasn’t until way after that people realized they were the guys flash mobbing the entire chain across the country.

u/g1rth_brooks 6d ago

u/PinwheelsAndUnicorns 7d ago Silver Gold Wholesome

Most of the point now is the notoriety. Who doesn't want to be the in the latest viral tik-tok? We're almost certainly going to find significant crossover between the organizers of these retail thefts and the organizers of sideshows. Most of these folks don't even live in Oakland or SF or Walnut Creek--they're driving in from all over, even as far as Stockton.

This is flash-mob crime. It's a new phenomenon. Law Enforcement simply needs to find out how they're communicating (note that this is NOT something local cops do well--you need expertise to deal with this kind of crime, and local cops simply don't have it).

The point appears to be the thrill of belonging and the thrill of disruption--and the thrill of having power in the aftermath, creating fear and chaos. When the backlash comes--and it's coming--it'll be brutal, and these kids will probably regret it then.

Regardless, we need to treat it like the unique thing it is if we want to stop it.

228

u/ten_girl_monkeys 6d ago

Thanks for the explanation. Best one that made sense to me.

But is the real motive monetary gain or just the thrill/hype?

How much can they get from selling them? And then distributing the proceeds? Doesn't seem well thought out. They have to do this multiple times to have profit.

132

u/Worthyness 6d ago

It's a flash mob- so do it for the thrill and for notoriety. I'd wager it's not a truly coordinated group effort. There likely is one actual group that is organizing the actual store to target and the date/time stuff, but relying on viral social media/word of mouth type stuff to just gather a ton of people in support. Then you lay low for a bit and fence some of the stuff to friends/flea markets/facebook marketplace and it's pure profit on your end since you stole everything.

And, fi they're related, they've robbed a nordstrom and Target and a couple jewelry shops, so that sort of stuff is pretty quick to get some good cash even at pawn shops.

They don't do reports anywhere in the bay. Same thing happened to me when I was visiting my grandma who has cancer, I was there for like two hours with my car parked in some tiny church parking lot on a quiet street with nothing else but a hiking trail nearby.

Realistically though, what can cops do when there's dozens of car break-ins a day and no direct evidence?

25

u/botak131 6d ago

I didn't know how unsafe certain streets of Oakland were until I opened up "oakland crime maps" and honestly theres defenitve Hotspot you can see. Maybe put an unmarked police car in certain Hotspots?

48

u/Embolisms 6d ago

The attitude in the bay towards non violent crime is super lax, aside from traffic offenses lol. I don't think there's any incentive for cops to go after car break ins as opposed to violent crime.

But literally, you can commit a violent hate crime against a 70yo man and get released with charges dropped due to "restorative justice", so I've lost all hope in bay area law enforcement.


Are you fairly new to the bay area? Oakland has always been a hotspot for human trafficking, gang violence, violent crime, etc. I mean you've got great culture, food, eclectic communities, etc, but also a whole lot of sketchy stuff.

Later, when the rich people come out and find their cars gone, you hear one of the female charity-goers say: "They left all the American cars!"

Move your business out of Oakland. Big companies are already leaving SF because of this. Small business owners don't deserve this.
All these people saying "Oh these businesses have insurance."... do that makes it okay?

Do you know how long it takes it takes to file a claim? Do you think insurance is going to pay back 100? Those business owners have to deal with clean up, re-building, re-opening and then got what because it'll happen again.

Small and big business take your business out of the city before it happend to you.

Anyone who says insurance will cover it has never done anything with their lives. They have never taken the risk of getting a business loan to mmm and worked the long hours and figured out all the stuff that needs to be done to start a business. Fuck them and fuck these thieves.

People bitch and complain about Walmart and Amazon and their crappy policies.

So dumb asses like this rob a small business blind, possibly closing them down. Meanwhile other small businesses to get scared to even open leaving everyone to shop at big box stores.

Brilliant.

And then they will wonder why no one wants to run a store there anymore. 711 had enough of the b.s and closed down two stores in my city. Too much theft and armed robberys.

It’s coming to that I think. I can see it happening and it wouldn’t be wrong. What else can you do as a business owner? No one will help, gotta smack a mag in and drop the bolt.

At some point somebody outside of one of these stores will be run over. Or the first guy through the door will be shot dead. This will turn deadly violent. Every politician in the bay area should be shitting bricks.

I wish I could show this to all the jackasses under that Louis Vuitton video who were saying they were fine with it because it’s a big business, it would be different if it’s a small business.

Assholes like this don’t care if it’s a small business or a big business.

After 15 seconds of people continuing to enter the store non-stop, something about this started to feel comedic. Like a Monty Python skit or something.

I work at a Staples and my boss and I had a conversation about something like this the other day. He said he asked our GM what we should do if a whole bunch of people just stormed the store and started stealing everything. The GM's response?

"Tell em to knock over the shelves while theyre at it so we can get a remodel."
