The San Francisco Bay Area is under siege by hammer-wielding mobs taking advantage of lax misdemeanor laws.

On Saturday, in Walnut Creek, a group of about 80 people carrying crowbars swarmed into a Nordstrom and left a minute later carrying expensive merchandise. They piled into about 25 cars and sped off.
 

“We probably saw 80 people in ski masks crowbars a bunch of weapons. They were looting the Nordstrom’s right here,” local PF Chang’s manager Brett Barrette told KGO.

Walnut Creek Police said that one employee was pepper sprayed and two others were kicked and punched.

A day earlier, a smaller group of masked men ran into a San Francisco Union Square Louis Vuitton and emptied the entire store or merchandise.

 
Police were there quickly to apprehend a few of the thieves who are probably back on the streets due to the Bay Area’s lax bail reform laws.

A pharmacy in Oakland was also hit by a mob of looters on Saturday.

On Sunday, a group of about 40-50 teenagers carrying hammers stormed into a Macy’s and other stores in the Southland Mall.

They smashed glass cases and stole jewelry from Sam’s jewelry store. About an hour later, in San Jose, another group entered a Lululemon store in the outdoor mall at Santana Row and stole merchandise before fleeing the scene.

All of the smash-and-grab robberies were over in less than a minute.

Residents blame Democratic lawmakers who downgraded the theft of property less than $950 in value from a felony to a misdemeanor charge.

The same lawmakers also enacted bail reform laws making it easier for criminals to hit the streets following arrests.

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin faces a recall election amid soaring crime rates.
