Gutfeld: In this new world, you'd be stupid not to steal

But whenever goods are stolen, a Democrat will say it’s because the people steal and can’t afford to buy them, even though the thieves sell the stolen crap immediately after it’s grabbed. 

Remember when the looting took off after the bail reforms with people stealing baby formula and diapers? AOC was saying it’s because the poor needed this stuff. But if anybody needs a diaper, it’s her. Because she’s so full of crap – see, I’m growing up.

GUTFELD: THE WHITE HOUSE WANTS TO POLICE PEOPLE’S OPINIONS

Of course, most poor people do not steal. How much money you have has nothing to do with how honest you are. The problem here in New York is clear. Stealing is simply incentivized, so the already criminalized simply get more criminally. And I invented that word “criminally.” 

It’s not like poor, decent people just embarked on a life of crime because Walgreens got lazy. No, our liberal DAs just made recidivism acceptable for the riff-raff. Take New York’s infamous serial thief who led the league in shoplifting busts with 46 arrests – four more, and he gets a free toaster, which is weird because he already stole seven. 

Now, was it his poverty that drove him? Now, I’m guessing he drove himself probably in a stolen Lexus. But did he use the products he stole, like every Democrat claimed these impoverished souls would? No, he’d pilfer drugstores, then flip the booty for cash. I know this for a fact because I bought 12 men in Speed Sticks off him. What can I say if you ever dipped them in ranch dressing? They’re delicious. 

The New York Post, owned by our parent company Life Alert, interviewed the guy – that was a joke – and he said everything that you knew to be true. He kept robbing only because he could keep robbing thanks to the soft-on-crime prosecutors. He robbed Walgreens so often he’d bring in his own reusable bag. 

I don’t blame him. If he actually did pay for the goods, imagine the length of his receipts. I don’t understand it, either.

GREG GUTFELD: THE LEFT HAS TURNED INTO EVERYTHING THEY HATED

Isaac Rodriguez robbed one Walgreens at least 37 times last year. This guy was on camera more than [Brian] Kilmeade has been in the last two years. He’ll be actually subbing for Kilmeade on “Fox & Friends” weekends. 

But he stole everything from protein drinks to body lotion, which when you mix together, makes a delicious yogurt. He also stole toothpaste, soap and tampons. Yes, tampons. Now, this might have tipped some off that this wasn’t for Isaac’s personal use, but then again, men can now have babies, so why not periods? They then sell the stolen stuff on the street or in pawnshops for cash. 

And he kept going, not because he had to feed a family. It was due to the revolving door justice system that kept him in business while putting stores out of business. Remember, this new craze was brought to you by reforms that got rid of pretrial detention, cash bail for misdemeanors, and nonviolent felonies, which include grand larceny.
