I would have done the same thing if I had been in charge of that store.
Its not as if shoplifting isn’t a major problem in retail stores. Its not as if its unusual for gangs of school kids to be involved. This had nothing to do with race. The event was a result of the behaviour of the kids concerned, and they would have been thrown out if they were black white or purple with green spots.
However, so what if they were from Somalia or Sudan?
The police statistics show the rate of offending among the Sudanese community is 7109.1 per 100,000, while for Somali people it is 6141.8 per 100,000. The figure for the wider community is 1301.0 per 100,000.
Mr Scott, headmaster of the school the boys attend, said it was not the first time his students, who were at the mall dressed in school uniform, were treated in such a manner.
“They were just six kids standing around a table looking at phones,” Mr Scott told Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper.
Six kids in a group and of an ethnicity know for high crime standing around/ looking at phones in one of the poorest and most multicultural suburbs in Melbourne is enough to make any retailer nervous.
I’d like to ask these kids how many of them have actually made purchases in the mall during their frequent visits. My instincts tell me there’s something going on here, and it would not surprise me one but if these kids weren’t out looking for trouble, and an excuse to scream racism.
I am firmly on the side of the store staff. I think there is more to this story than we are being told and the MSM are running with it because its yet another example that fits their usual Critical Theory narrative, “Western society is no good in so many ways and one of them is because it is racist.”
And I say this when I don’t like Apple.
And here’s why I don’t like Apple. Listen to the Marxist language of the Apple CEO as he cravenly apologises.
“We want every person who joins our team, every customer visiting our stores or calling for support to feel welcome. We believe in equality for everyone, regardless of race, age, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.”
Marxist garbage straight from the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory, and this dumbarsed crony capitalist has no idea of the origin of the words he is parroting. The implication of these words is thus-
“we subscribe to the enlightened religion of Progressivism, and if we did not share this faith, we would fall victim to the bigotry and ignorance that the unenlightened sector of society would foist upon us.”
This issue is a typical MSM race baiting beat up, but really, it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving bunch of Marxist twits. Apple. Microsoft. Google. Starbucks. I despise them all for their spineless surrender to the left, and their associated failure to defend Western culture. Let them all eat each other.
