Brazen thieves have been hitting the same Upper East Side Rite Aid for months, forcing it to close - and now, numerous small businesses in the upscale Manhattan neighborhood, where residents say they are on high alert because of rising crime, are worried they will soon suffer the same fate after a string of thefts.Shelves are already bare in the Rite Aid store, located at the corner of 80th Street and 2nd Avenue because it will shut its doors for good on February 15, the manager told, a day after a thief was caught on video boldly sauntering out with shopping bags full of stolen goods.

You'd be brazen too if you knew you would be released without bail, and not prosecuted by a criminal-friendly DA.

And they expected something different with a DA telling them crooks can do anything, commit any crime and not suffer any consequences? This is just the beginning. We’re headed to full anarchy in NYC. I think that’s what it’ll take to wake up the rest of the country.

Since we have no comments from Joe Biden on all that law breaking there must not be any “White Supremacists” in sight!

Okay, I get that law enforcement has been told to ignore this crime for the most part. However, why does no one question the morals of these thieves? Where does personal responsibility come into play? Stealing is wrong. Period. We all know it. No one has the right to steal something regardless of their race or ethnicity. Your skin color does not give you a pass when it comes to right and wrong. This behavior is why people look at some in the black community and wonder why so many of them have abandoned right and wrong. It is culture rot and it is not helping their cause. They are marginalizing themselves.

I think this is by design. IF retailers leave, and they can get the small businesses to cease, the Gov't will fill the space and open subsidized retailers. Sending a message "See how good communism can be?" We can provide as long as you give us everything you own... Support Small Businesses before its too late.

The balancing act between a wrongful death lawsuit ("he was such a nice boy"), paid security and bullets on one side, and insurance and high prices passed on to customers on the other leads to no profit (as customers go elsewhere). It's a Catch 22 with the store owner losing either way. What was it Shakespeare said about lawyers?

What is Clarence Thomas? An amazingly thoughtful and intelligent Supreme Court justice? A hero of sorts that overcame the disadvantages of his upbringing, the prejudices of his time, and the damage done to his career by affirmative action and ended up at the very top of the legal system? Well, yes, those are both correct answers. But the jabbering parrots on “the View” didn’t arrive at that answer. No, according to those bitter, cackling hens, Clarence Thomas is a “race traitor.” Yes, they really said that. Oh, and they implied that Amy Coney Barrett is a traitor to women.

Washington—Republicans’ faith in science is falling as Democrats rely on it even more, with a trust gap in science and medicine widening substantially during the COVID-19 pandemic, new survey data shows. It’s the largest gap in nearly five decades of polling by the General Social Survey, a widely respected trend survey conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago that has been measuring confidence in institutions since 1972. That is unsurprising to more than a dozen scientists reached for comment by The Associated Press, but it concerns many of them. Science used to be something all Americans would get behind, Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley said.
