Schiff Greeted With San Francisco Burglary Upon Arrival

( – The San Francisco Police Department’s current data shows that crime is down in the city. While burglary showed a decrease of 17.2% year-over-year, that didn’t save one Democratic politician who had just arrived in San Francisco to attend a formal dinner.

On April 25, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) drove into the city and parked his car in a downtown parking garage. Unfortunately, someone broke into his vehicle and swiped his luggage with his clothes for a formal dinner. The lawmaker told the San Francisco Chronicle that someone had stolen his bags, but he didn’t want to concentrate on that during his visit. Instead, he wanted to focus on what brought him to the city — a fundraising event. Schiff traveled to specifically thank Attorney Joe Crochett for supporting him in his effort to fill the late Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) seat in November.

The California lawmaker seemed unphased by the incident, shrugging off the burglary and the fact that he had to wear fairly casual clothes to the formal event. Crochet’s spokesperson, Lee Houkeeper, joked that it was a “Welcome to San Francisco.” The attorney himself simply said Schiff “showed himself” that evening, said he would “change the Senate” and make a “great senator.” Likewise, no one involved in the event seemed bothered by the theft.

But people on the internet weren’t so kind. One person blamed the theft on the Left, proclaiming that Democrats “reap what [they] sow.” Another indicated that all crime “could stop” if Democrats “wanted law & order,” adding they didn’t feel sorry for Schiff at all. Several others continued roasting the lawmaker, San Francisco, and California in general.

Still, the commenters were likely unaware of crime statistics in the city, which were down year-over-year across the board — not just burglary. Similar crimes like larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft were down 37.8% and 13.7%, respectively. Crime overall, including violent incidents, decreased by 29.7%.
