Owner Returns To Looted Store (must see video)
My Fox Philly ^

Posted on 12/18/2011 3:36:58 PM PST by Red in Blue PA

PHILADELPHIA - A North Philadelphia shop owner said he had no words to describe his emotions upon returning from India, where he had attended his mother’s funeral, to discover his store had been looted and vandalized.

Bhupinder Cheema had operated a small convenience store near Germantown Avenue and West Cumberland Street, and had invested thousands of dollars into the business. Over the course of trip to Indian, which lasted several weeks, word spread through the neighborhood that the store had been left unattended.

Oh, I see; I’ve been through there, and it seems much cleaner than NJ. In fact, in driving across the country, it ALL seems cleaner than NJ.

It’s a shame that these entrepreneurs from other countries don’t have the geographical awareness or understanding of the urban $hitholes where they are risking their investment capital and their lives.


I am not accusing this gentleman of anything and don’t know anything about his specific store but you would be SHOCKED if you knew how much welfare fraud with the food stamp program takes place at these little inner city mom and pop’s. They find ways to sell cigarettes, beer, and anything else using EBT cards if they are not paying out 50 cents on the dollar and there is very little investigation done by the agencies that oversee the programs.

This was horrible but ask yourself why so many of these stores flourish in the inner city.

Now you know why there are no chain supermarkets in inner cities like this.

They get robbed blind by visitors and employees.

I feel sorry for this guy. Perhaps, he will move to a non-criminal section of the country and succeed.

Germantown Ave. at E. Cumberland is not even close to Germantown. It’s closer to the Badlands. This is the anus of North Philly we’re talking about. It is another planet.

Tell ‘em’’ Kearny’’. My older brother managed the Shop-Rite in our old home down right across the Passaic River from Newark for years and the stories he told me. Carloads of blacks loading up, some paid, some shop-lifted most always bitchin’ about having to travel so far and always putting it down to ‘;’whitey don’t want to come to Newark’’.

Finally, a concrete example of what community organizers do.

I also managed to never set foot in LA

A few years back, my wife and I were in Las Vegas, I noticed a sign saying, California only so many miles, 40 or so? I had never been there but my wife had, so we drove into Californian, took the very first exit and made a turn around. I entered the on ramp to go back to Nevada and there was no trafic to speak of so I pulled over while still on the ramp, opened my door and stepped my left foot on the ground. Now I can say, I have stepped foot in California.

I used to go there often, before I truly appreciated the 2A.

Now I avoid it (and all places which disallow self-defense) like the plague. (NJ is on that list)

That’s too funny; one of my in-laws was a manager in Basics. (Remember when that was down there?)

His descriptions of the Kearny PD dealing with the Newark residents were absolutely hysterical, though depressing in hindsight.

I was in Philly for a few days for my job; we were in a hotel by the Liberty Bell, and I have to tell you I thought it was pretty decent. At night we went north to some Colombian restaurant, and saw parts of the city that were not so decent.

They get robbed blind by visitors and employees.

In a city near where I live, about 30 years ago, the south side of the city had no big super markets. Finally, one opened, they had to hire armed security guards for every hour they were opened and in Illinois that generally means off duty cops and they don't come cheap.

The store was struggling and people were complaining about high prices but they had to cover the costs of those security guards, plural because they always had two on duty, plus they had to cover the cost of losses due to shop lifting and employee theft.

The final straw that made them close was when one of the guards was killed by armed robbers. The owners told the local newspaper that they couldn't stay open because their liability insurance premiums had sky rocketed and they could no longer even find enough security guards to work there.

There's still no larger grocery store in the entire section of that city, one of Mooshele's "food desert areas".

Funny, that was my thought, too.

There is a reason that stores don’t open in those areas. And a reason that the stores that DO open in those areas charge appropriately high prices for their goods.
