Santa Ana Police: Robberies Soar 50% as Suspects Exploit Mask Recommendation

Santa Ana, California, is experiencing a surge in crime as suspects exploit a national recommendation to wear masks to prevent the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

The Santa Ana Police Department told CBS News Los Angeles that the city has seen a 50 percent spike in robberies since California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced a sweeping stay-at-home order in March. Speaking to the news outlet, one gas station clerk recounted how he was held up at gunpoint by a masked thief last Friday at 2 a.m. The clerk said the suspect didn’t arouse suspicion because mask coverings are now the norm, allowing the thief to catch him off guard when he pulled a gun on him and took his cash before getting away in a silver Nissan Altima.

Pre-assaultive behavior is now mandatory in many jurisdictions.

Not disagreeing with anything that has been said, but just presenting an equally bad counterpoint. In VA and some other states, during normal times, it is a felony to wear a mask in public that conceals your identity, even if it is a medical mask or a cold weather mask, etc. and this law has been known to be enforced, albeit arbitrarily. There are exceptions for holiday celebrations, like Halloween, and occupational safety applications. But to wear a medical mask, you have to have a note from your doctor. To wear a dust mask on a construction crew, it has to be required by OSHA.

You might assume the law was created to curb the kind of criminal activity described in this thread. But oh no, it was created back in the 50's to curb the activities of the KKK. But irony of ironies, the only person to make the news recently wearing a KKK mask was in a picture with our Democratic governor.
