50 Cent, known offstage as Curtis Jackson, has once again voiced his concerns about the law and order situation in Los Angeles, following a recent smash-and-grab heist. Authorities have estimated the theft to be up to $300,000 worth of merchandise.

After the recent robbery at a Nordstrom department store where dozens of hooded suspects ransacked and stole goods, Jackson posted a screenshot with the caption:

“I told you LA was finished. They are gonna have to lock the doors, appointment only. SMH [Shake My Head].”

Further, he posted a video on social media showing thieves stealing an entire rack of clothes in the Bay Area, expressing his shock at the audacity of the crime.

This comes on the heels of his comments last month regarding bail policies in Los Angeles County, where he lamented:

“LA is finished. Watch how bad it gets out there.”

The rapper even questioned the manner in which media outlets have reported his opinions, emphatically stating his rebirth as a born-again Christian.

His concerns are backed by recent news of a court reinstating a zero-bail policy for several non-violent crimes in L.A. County, leading Deputy District Attorney John McKinney to state:

“The Sheriff’s Department will no longer detain people for crimes such as theft, shoplifting, drug use, vandalism, battery, and a whole host of other non-serious, non-violent crimes that affect the quality of life of people here in Los Angeles County.”
