New guidance from Diana Becton, first-term Costa County (California) District Attorney, states that law-enforcement officers must consider if looters “needed” the merchandise they stole before charging them.
California law, under Penal Code 463, defines “looting” as taking advantage of a state of emergency to commit burglary, grand theft or petty theft, and those engaged in the act can be charged with a felony and serve up to three years in jail. But Becton, who is one of many radical district attorneys financially supported by George Soros, is attempting to circumvent the law by proposing preposterous charging guidelines for the crime. Becton says that when considering charging looters, law enforcement types should ask, “Was the theft committed for financial gain or personal need.” (Emphasis mine.)
“Pardon me, did you need the big screen television, those Louis Vuitton handbags, and those bottles of Wild Turkey?”
Becton believes stealing is perfectly acceptable if one needs what one takes from someone else. Or if a shop is closed at the time. Or if one was motivated by the “state of emergency” rather than greed, and couldn’t stop oneself from stealing as a result.
