On Friday, CNN Senior National Correspondent Kyung Lah's rental car was robbed in San Francisco, and it took the thieves less than 4 seconds to smash the vehicle's rear window and run off with one of her bags as well as one of CNN Producer Jason Kravarik's bags.
Lah tweeted that she "Got robbed. Again" despite having hired private security to watch the vehicle. She added, "Security stopped the jerks from stealing other bags. But seriously- this is ridiculous."
"Our hired security guard tried to grab the crooks (I'm glad he didn't get hurt!) but he got this picture of the getaway car. To the jerks who stole our stuff— I hope someone on this site sees your plate and you get caught," Lah added.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who held a 36 percent approval rating in October of last year but is the highest paid mayor in the country, led the "defund the police" charge in 2021. Since then violent crime has spiked, such as an increase in rapes by 9.5 percent and assault is up 12 percent and overall crime has increased 7.4 percent in San Francisco compared to 2021.
"So maybe having police & arresting criminals wasn’t such a bad idea after all," Elon Musk responded.
Last year, San Francisco ranked highest on a list of Democrat led metropolises that have become barren of human activity.
Lah said the city was "beautiful" but "if you do visit this city, know that even with hired security watching your car, it is not enough."
Lah later reported via Twitter that she was in "San Francisco doing a story about voter discontent bc of rampant street crime #irony."
Lah and Kravarik's bags were later recovered.
Homelessness has skyrocketed in San Francisco, a city with a $1.7 billion deficit and nearly 8,000 homeless population.
