Jan 19 - LA Freight Train Looting Out Of Control
 

 
The scene in Southern California resembles a disaster movie — only it's not.

Thousands of boxes littering Union Pacific (UNP) train tracks in downtown Los Angeles attest to a wave of rail thefts that have taken place in recent months — worsening supply chain bottlenecks and creating endless delays for consumers and merchants that likely cost millions, if not more.


With retailers seeing a wave of "smash and grab" thefts, rail heists are now taking center stage in the latest problem dogging the industry. Over the weekend, Yahoo Finance saw several scavengers picking through the sea trash, hoping to find valuable goods like electronics, clothes or whatever items thieves left behind.

Thieves have been raiding cargo containers, taking packages that belong to people from all over the country from retailers like Amazon (AMZN), Target (TGT), Macy’s (M), Skechers, and others, leading to viral images on social media. Data from the National Retail Federation found that the average loss from organized crime topped $700,000 per $1 billion in sales in 2020.

Some of the refuse left behind included pills, dermatology products, home decor which robbers didn’t want, or simply didn't believe were valuable enough to take.

On Saturday, Yahoo Finance found several packages, and upon entering the tracking number information found they were marked as “on the way – delay.”

say thanks to "progressive" DA instead of criticizing LAPD

Union Pacific said in its letter that in the last three months of the year it made over 100 arrests of "active criminals vandalizing our trains" in partnership with the LA police department and Los Angeles Sherriff department. After being arrested individuals are released from custody within 24 hours, it said.

The company claims that a December 2020 special directive issued by District Attorney George Gascón that changed how low-level offenses are prosecuted has contributed to the uptick.

Gascon has to do with LAPD patrolling? Your job is to police even if they keep coming back.

fu*k The Police

But I would think this is a situation that the private companies have to deal with. The private companies would have to hire security.

Dont think the LAPD does security for freight trains

Right but Police don't handle private security.

If you own a store the police aint gonna sit outside of your sh*t all day making sure no one robs you. Its your responsibility as the business owner to have security.

From my understanding these are private cargo trains..So if the situation is that bad then they need to hire armed security.

Dont really want my tax dollars going towards the police guarding Amazon packages with some tampons.

I was there not too long ago, feels like the only time I saw any cops was at the airport, or the beach maybe...

Crazy how such a beautiful place can be so wild at the same time.

Things fall apart
