    Spray water on the floor, then toss in a live wire. Drop fishing nets on them , take them to the bay and throw them into the dark murky waters.

    If the local mayors don't do a thing the stores will move out, or locals will begin protecting the businesses.

    Shouldn’t this go in the “how horrible Portland is” thread?

    Give it time, everything happens in California first, then trickles down to more insignificant areas later.

    They are hitting upscale malls in OC now too. Robbing diners as they eat.

    Anyone who wants to look at me doing some nude sunbathing better be forewarned. It's not a pretty sight.

    i do think this is a good idea but not the only answer. A mask on and a change of clothes after ducking under a cover, and nothing can be proven.

    The mask and change of clothes doesn't change anything. This doesn't typically have high enough resolution to identify a person, but it allows you to track a target to a location. Then once you have suspects you can do police work to eliminate them from consideration.

    It's not a replacement for police work, just a supplement. This has been used many times and has lead to many convictions.

    And they could up the resolution as necessary.

    In this time of violence and political discourse its really heart warming to see everyone come together and brainstorm ways to make sure massive corporations don't suffer product losses. I'm particularly fond of the increased surveillance, vigilante justice and heavy handed authoritarian approachs.

    This is not the way to get money from large corporations. We all pay for this via increased pricing and insurance.

    The correct way is to change laws regarding tax, incentives, and benefits to make sure corporations pay people better.

    I'm actually on the fence about the eye in the sky solution. I could support it being used in high crime areas.

    But the short of that, just arm the stores and when it starts happening fire a warning shot in the air. They'll clear fast. Otherwise, if people start getting shot they'll think about it a bit harder before pulling this.

    It sucks, but... Fixing the roof is probably cheaper than what's going on here.

    So the person working at the store for a minimum wage, that doesn't even come close to giving them a liveable wage, now requires that they handle firearms and make life and death decisions. Great idea. Let's force more work requirements and danger on criminally underpaid and overworked retail workers. Great idea.
