California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Thursday visited a rail theft cleanup site after organized gangs stole thousands of Amazon and UPS boxes from trains.
Gangs of thieves in California have stolen thousands of boxes from trains.
As freight trains slow down or come to a stop, the thieves jump onto the trains and use bolt cutters to open the containers and steal merchandise, Inside Edition reported.
After the criminals are caught and arrested, charges are reduced to a misdemeanor and the thieves are back on the streets in less than 24 hours to steal again!
This is what happens when criminality is ignored and often justified by the left. And they say they care about earth!

Governor Newsom apologized for saying “gangs” during his visit to a rail theft cleanup site in downtown Los Angeles.
“This is not one off. This is organized theft. These are organized gangs of people that are — forgive me for saying gangs, I know that’s not a pejorative – they’re organized groups of folks,” Newsom said.
He doesn’t want to offend the gang members.
