When I watched the looting going on during some of the riots that has been going on these recent months, the thought came into my head: what would I loot for if I were the type that went out looting?
You see, I am the type of person that tries to buy with the prospect of need in mind before want whenever possible. I will let things run until the wheels fall off if new wheels aren’t needed.
For example, if I WERE the type of person to loot, I would probably buy a new copier and desk for my office. I need a bigger desk. Anyway, that would be a pretty hard thing to loot.
My point is, most people are not like that and don’t go looting for things they need. They go after things they want.
Democrat District Attorney Diane Becton from Contra Costa, California ordered attorneys to consider the looter’s needs before filing charges against looters in their community.
Becton was funded by George Soros groups by the tune of $275,000 in her race for District Attorney.
According to FOX News:
The new mandate, set forth by Contra Costa County District Attorney Diane Becton, makes it tougher to prosecute looting cases in the county, which sits just outside San Francisco.
Investigators must now consider “was this theft offense substantially motivated by the state of emergency, or simply a theft offense which occurred contemporaneously to the declared state of emergency?,” according to the policy reported by local outlet East County Today.
In making that determination, they must also consider five other factors, including “was the theft committed for financial gain or personal need?”
Isn’t there a Commandment against this?
Don’t civil societies understand the significance of this Commandment?
