What can be done to help these unfortunate citizens?

Search FLASH MOB THEFT on the www... you'll find many video examples of this same demography, committing the same ritual. There was no violence against anyone. People are taking what they need to make ends meet...

Can we fund a program with Trump's China Tarrifs to help pay merchants for product taken? Since this is the same demography that rioted at local malls and Sumerfest (search the web, documentation is readily available), the program should include malls, food stores, and gas stations, as well.

There should be no limits. Store owners should document and apply for reimbursement, similar to a farmer requesting payment for a cow killed by wolves. Store owners should get a 25% premium over full retail pricing to encourage locating stores closer to this demography.

Store owners will welcome a Flash Mob, as it becomes profitable. For society, It is less expensive than sending people to prison.

It's a great use of the Chinese Tariffs.
