So it looks like the organizer for this GoFundMe was able to raise the $17,000 target for the business that was looted in La Mesa.

If you made a donation, thanks for helping out.

Donations are still being accepted above the fund raising goal, so if you so feel compelled to help a local business , the GoFundMe is still open.

The used sporting good store model I can't understand. The one in PB is in a large prime spot and gets a lot of browsers but not a ton of people at the cash register. The one in OB I've been to a few times and usually I am the only customer inside.

I'm not complaining, I've accumulated a large set of nice dumbbells from the PB location, their prices are 30% less than new, and it isn't like a metal dumbbell gets a lot of wear and tear.

The fundraiser is up to $84,672 Monday afternoon ($50,000 goal).

There was an interesting comment that was made:

As he was pulling his merchandise from looter’s hands Saturday night, he noticed all of them were young — perhaps not even 18 years old. When he took his things back, he said some of the teenagers looked shell-shocked and expressed regret.

“They said, ‘I’m sorry, man, I didn’t realize,’” Buxton said, noting an apparent disconnect between the looters’ actions and their repercussions.

I have noticed that there is a common disconnect within a group of youth in America these days. They are shell shocked because they can't conceive that what they are doing is wrong and that there are counter-actions and counter-effects for everything they do. They have not learned consequences.

I put that at the feet of their parents.
