CNN Reporter Goes to San Francisco for Story on Crime, Gets Robbed in Broad Daylight

CNN reporter Kyung Lah visited San Francisco for a story about voter discontent because of “rampant street crime.”

Lah hired private security as a precaution due to the city’s red-hot crime rates and thought she was safe.

She was not.

“Got robbed. Again,” she said.

“@jasonkCNN & I were at city hall in San Francisco to do an interview for @CNN.

“We had security to watch our rental car + crew car.

“Thieves did this in under 4 seconds.

“Security stopped the jerks from stealing other bags.

“But seriously- this is ridiculous.

“Our hired security guard tried to grab the crooks (I’m glad he didn’t get hurt!) but he got this picture of the getaway car.

“To the jerks who stole our stuff— I hope someone on this site sees your plate and you get caught.

“San Francisco is a beautiful city.

“This is our 3rd day here and I’ve loved my time here.

“But if you do visit this city, know that even with hired security watching your car, it is not enough.

“Now I’m about to try and get a Southwest Air flight back to Los Angeles without ID or passport since they were both stolen.

“I’ll let you know how that goes.”

She later posted an update to reveal that the city is so used to the rampant crime that the airport already has protocols in place for when people get passports stolen.

“Because so many people get their cars broken into and their bags stolen, Southwest Air was very used to my lack-of-ID problem and smoothly gave me my ticket after a brief security check.

“Off to TSA now.

“OMG!!! My bag was recovered! (@jasonkCNN’s still missing).

“Perla w/@OCEIA_SF found my bag/biz cards & just rang me.

“Happy to report SF residents are fighting for their city, like @OCEIA_SF.

“They’re a community safety patrol program, speaking 17 languages, run by residents.

“Restaurant staff told @jasonkCNN that they are angry with San Francisco crime and saw Jason’s ‘whole life’ was in his bag.

“They had to search for his number and finally found a business card.

“SF is filled w/good, frustrated people who deserve better.”

One Twitter user had little sympathy for the CNN reporter, however, saying:

“You get the government you vote for.”
