When your DA feels organized retail theft is a low-priority, cite-and-release crime, you embolden criminals and end up with a shocking increase in cases like this. As your next DA, I will lead a task force with local law enforcement to prosecute these cases to the full extent of the law.

A large group of juveniles stole around $12,000 worth of products from a Nike store in a flash mob raid that was captured on video Sunday evening, authorities said.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the call regarding the retail theft came in shortly before 6 p.m. at the Nike Community Store located in the 9800 block of South Alameda Street.
Initial reports indicated that ten to 15 youths had entered the business and taken multiple products, but that number was later increased to 17, LAPD confirmed.
