posted by Hannity Staff - 12.29.21

The City by the Bay canceled its annual fireworks display intended to bring-in the New Year Wednesday; saying the show above San Francisco cannot go forward because of the rise of COVID and the Omicron variant.

“While we are all understandably eager to ring in a new year with San Francisco’s customary New Year’s Eve fireworks show, we must remain vigilant in doing all we can to stop the spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant,” Mayor London Breed said in a statement. “Thanks to our employee vaccine mandate, our public safety workers are well-protected against COVID, but they still must take all precautions to help limit the spread.

“By canceling the New Year’s Eve fireworks show we are reducing everyone’s exposure to COVID-19, while ensuring continuity of citywide public safety operations,” she added.

The “annual fireworks show at the Embarcadero requires increased deployments for critical public safety staff like police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, and 9-1-1 dispatchers,” officials also claimed.

Other festivities are being scaled down across the country, including New York City’s Time Square celebration. To attend, all party-goers must be fully vaccinated, wear face masks, and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Dozens of luxury stores in San Francisco were targeted by looters this week as violent mobs stole hundreds of thousands of dollars of merchandise with little police presence to stop the “smash and grab” operation.

“The mobs of thieves hit a handful of pharmacies and marijuana dispensaries in Oakland, including the Wellspring pharmacy that released surveillance video of the scene to the media. Police added that the mobs in Oakland fired 175 shots during the incidents, forcing officers to pull back to safe locations, The Mercury News reported,” reports Fox News.

“At least two dozen businesses were impacted,” Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong told CBS SF. “Roving caravans of vehicles, targeting cannabis operations, retail shops, pharmacies, throughout the city of Oakland.”

“People need to be alert,” San Jose police Sgt. Christian Camarillo told The Mercury News. “We’re coming into the busy holiday shopping season. We can’t be everywhere at the same time. We do need citizens’ help; when they see suspicious activity occurring, please let us know, especially at the malls.”

“I think what happens now is there’s no accountability for it anymore, and the liability for the stores if they try to apprehend these guys. They just stand by and watch,” Steve Reed, a retired police officer added.
