Amid a period of nationwide unrest, looters targeted a pharmacy in San Jose, California on Sunday that has been serving the community during the coronavirus pandemic, according to reports.

Garcia Pharmacy was robbed just before 9:00 p.m. Sunday, and most of the pharmacy’s medications were stolen, damaged or contaminated. Surveillance footage shows someone throwing an object and smashing the pharmacy’s window, with people then running inside to steal.

The pharmacy’s owner, James Wong, is telling some of his clients that their medication is not available due to the looting. He is also worried that these missing drugs could lead to even more damage.

“We’ve been helping the community for so long and it’s a slap in the face to go through this experience,” Wong told KTVU.

The thieves wore masks and filled their backpacks with prescription pill bottles. Wong told KTVU that they stole hundreds of patients’ medications, among them drugs to treat diabetes, epilepsy and blood pressure. He also told the television station that the looters came back a few times before driving off once he started sharing their license plate combinations to police.

“This is the first time I ever felt scared in San Jose,” said Wong. “I’ve been born and raised here. It was just a weird experience to go through.”

Wong added that he doesn’t know “if they opened some of the bottles and switched medications. We don’t know if they spit in them.”

He adds that he’s had to destroy most of his inventory. Even though the looters did not steal opioids or morphine, they took anti-psychotic medication.

“It’s really dangerous when medications get out to the general public,” Wong told KTVU. “They are not used correctly especially when there’s not supervision.”

He estimates $50,000 worth of drugs was stolen, with hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage done from the break-in.

“I have to say something,” Wong said. “This is getting completely out of hand now.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
