An Afghan immigrant describes crime ridden San Francisco as worse than Afghanistan

| June 4, 2023

A San Francisco store, Cigarettes R Cheaper, suffered a robbery. One of the owners for the store is someone who immigrated from Afghanistan in the 1980s. He contrasted similar actions in Afghanistan with those of these robbers/thieves. He argued that committing theft would result in your hands getting cut off in Afghanistan. In San Francisco, the thieves act with impunity as they know that they could get away with the theft.

From Fox News:

A San Francisco store owner who immigrated to the United States from Afghanistan says he is at his wits end with crime in the city after a gang of thieves stole over $100,000 in merchandise from his tobacco shop.

“The politicians need to get a grip on this because It’s worse than Afghanistan or Iraq,” Zaid, co-owner of Cigarettes R Cheaper in San Francisco’s Richmond District, told Fox News Digital. He was referring to crime in the city following a robbery Tuesday night, when a half dozen thieves smashed his windows and made off with about $80,000 in merchandise and $20,000 in cash.

“At least in Afghanistan the Taliban will cut your hand off and people are afraid to commit such a crime,” Zaid said, adding that he sees people stealing from nearby stores every day.

“They know the police won’t do anything,” Zaid explained, adding that the thieves were in his store for 18 to 20 minutes and had plenty of time to “ransack” the place. Zaid added that police have told him that they are short-handed.

The San Francisco Police Department, which is facing a crisis-level staffing shortage, confirmed to Fox News Digital that officers arrived on the scene at 2:44 a.m. on Wednesday and “observed the window to the business shattered and items from the business strewn about the scene.”

He isn’t wrong.

One major difference, between LA and Afghanistan. Near universal gun ownership of fully automatic rifles.

But… but… California is the example for the rest of the nation! The seventh largest economy in the world run by the smartest and brightest proggie minds the world has ever known! Surely things are no worse than they’ve ever been, the media is just talking it up to get you riled up…

Fuck California. I feel for this man and hope he can get back at least some of what he’s lost, including his dignity, but man… seriously… fuck California, that failed shithole.


Maybe crime will go down when the homeless illegals start collecting their $300 per week in “unemployment.”


“But… but… California is the example for the rest of the nation!” It absolutely is. Put it on display next to Portland as examples of what not to do. Remember, boys and girls: Elections have consequences!


California is a total shithole and will be as the current administration does not care. I do not even buy Commiefornia wines or anything from the west coast.


May St. John Moses Browning bestow bounteous blessings upon them. May Brother Maynard be with them in their hour of need. Amen.

But WAIT, owning an unlicensed full auto weapon is illegal, so why did the goblins have it?


I agree with him.

Where is that fucking loser and fraud “Turd” Bolling of Ambassador Worldwide Protection Agency (both National and International) when you need him?

“Turd” could sit with his thumb up his ass while playing a real cop and a Navy SEAL.

With “Turd” Bolling patrolling, anything could be a going….


L.A. is worse than Asscrackistan.

Maybe he should relocate to someplace in Texas?

At least California doesn’t have roadside IED’s and landmines, at least for now.

The PDRK, (peepuls demokratic repugnant of kaliphornya) is a shining example of the demokratik utopia where everyone is free to enjoy the conditions of said utopia. They voted for the morons who engineered the stupidity then applauded when the engineers proposed even more stupidity by defunding the Police. Now they are surprised when criminals do what they want because the elected DA won’t prosecute “victimless property crimes” just as he / she said during the campaign. The citizens there have no one to blame but themselves. Enjoy the results of your decisions.

Oh and do not even think about moving somewhere else and starting that feces again there. Stay put and fix your own damn mess.
