Most of these stores will wind up having to shut down rather than be under constant risk of robbery. Then people will be complaining about lack of service and lack of jobs.

Bad neighborhoods already have few businesses to serve them for this reason. Even grocery store chains avoid them.

Can you blame them? CVS took a gamble in Baltimore and the nigglets burnt it down and stole the drugs.

I remember reading some time ago that big chain stores ruined cities. Later, all the chain stores disappeared. Guess what? Then everyone who cried foul about chain stores all of a sudden were in shock that small mom and pop stores were more expensive! huh! Go figure.

Why would you put up a store where 60% of your stock will just disappear.

Poof, Gone.

Not just robbery. It is unreal the amount of shoplifting that goes on. A town in Illinois of about 80,000 that has very ghetto parts but also very nice parts had a Jewel Osco that had to shut down because they were losing an average of $800/day from shoplifting. That's $5,600 a week! Congratulations, you now don't have a grocery store and your local community has fewer low skilled jobs.

That's the point. They are weaponizing poverty. More poor people = more ammo.
