Authorities in Illinois say 14 thieves hit a high-end store at once in broad daylight.

In a press release, the Oak Brook Police Department says the suspects robbed a Louis Vuitton store at the Oak Brook Center on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.

"Once they entered the store, they pulled out the garbage bags from their coats and started filling them with [the] merchandise," said Police Chief James Kruger.

After robbing the store, the suspects drove away in three vehicles, police say.
On Friday, police say they recovered one of the vehicles, a stolen Dodge Charger, which was stolen out of Chicago in October.
The department said the suspects reportedly got away with $120,000 worth of merchandise.


Pretty soon all these stores will be virtual, perhaps on the metaverse, or within guarded walls of HOA communities.
I think Florida is half way there with massive HOA's.

When there are no pharmacies, grocery stores, or shopping malls left in the public realm who is to blame?

I think you pretty much nailed this. It is a seemingly inevitable part of our very near future. And a person will at some point have to sell their soul to even participate in the metaverse.

I was actually a bit floored when Zuckerberg announced the Facebook name change and plans right before Halloween. He was raised as a Jew and surely knows the meaning of Meta.

I will do all I can to keep my kids out of this. They are not spellbound or indoctrinated so they have a good grip on where things are heading.

As a kid I use to dream about virtual reality games and an awesome future cyber world. This is all a great lesson about careful what you wish for.

The metaverse.

Anyone who joins that, have fun in your dystopia Hell. Not touching it with a 5000ft pole.

The beast system is not for me.

Go look at ipetgoat2 again..... its not even funny how creepy this all is. Zuckerberg knows what 'meta' means.

Also all the WORST people in the world are fully invested in this - they call it the great narrative - they want to be God. All it will take is for one man to rise and take control of this and ALL of Biblical prophecy is go time.

You have NO idea how close we are!

Hehe.. forgive me im in a silly mood.

When I was a kid. If I left on a light in my room unattended. Either my mother or mamaw would take the lightbulb out of the lamp or ceiling, thus leaving me at night in the dark. I was very afraid of the dark.

By her doing this "repeatedly", and I highly disagree on her stance on how much I did this.

Over time, I got more and more into the habit of turning the lights off. I learned that by her taking away something of great importance to me.... I learned to behave and respect what she and others have provided for me.

If it isn't yours, don't touch.


I had the best childhood. But don't think for a second one of my parents didn't give me a swat on the
Butt. 😒



Start with even basic parenting.

No. That would be more like the advent of antichrist.

I have always believed that the antichrist spirit would most manifest itself in the form of a "god" that mankind would create then worship. Thar is what civilizations have done for millennia - fabricate gods according to their own desires then set thiñose created gods up as objects is worship.

This is what AI will become, I believe.

The Antichrist/Beast will be a man. I am a bible believer (I highly prefer KJV) and according to scripture the Beast and his image will be worshipped. I definitely think his image will involve high tech ai. It could be hard to tell the man from the ai but that probably will not make any difference. The end result will be the same.

Not sure I understood your question correctly but maybe this helps.

Here is the problem. Even online sellers are getting scammed/robbed by people. It can get bad depending on what you sell so much so that people started posting how to avoid scammers on Ebay and other platforms videos on You Tube. There are people who have stopped selling online because it got so bad for them.

If stores go from selling in public to selling online, and they are still being ripped off, where are they going to go to sell next? There is no space where someone can safely sell without someone trying to eventually rob or scam the seller.

I'm sure Amazon is hurting with their easy return policy. I heard over half the time they don't even check the returns. A person can order a new item, and return their used/broken item. The used item can end up back in circulation as a new item. If you buy from a non-FBA seller (they do not have prime because they never shipped the product to an Amazon warehouse for Amazon fullfilment) those sellers more often than not check their returns. I sure Walmart and other large retailers get slammed one way or another also.

As far as the theift, Louis Vuitton will more than likely take a claim out with their insurance for the items that have been stolen, and any damage done to the store.

I absolutely love Dr. Gene Kim and his lesson for today could not be more relevant to this thread.

It is awesome how often this happens.

yes, but how soon does such insurance stop, or premiums to go sky high and affordable? i can see insurance companies in areas that suffer or are possibly to have these riots and looting doing this since they loose money. or at the very least no longer covering damage or losses from "civil unrest".

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (AP) — About 80 people, some wearing ski masks and wielding crowbars, ransacked a high-end department store in the San Francisco Bay Area, assaulting employees and stealing merchandise before fleeing in cars waiting outside, police and witnesses said.
