In South Africa, they can't just print money and hand it out the way we can. When they get looted, they lose their livelihoods. Compare the response below to the emasculated security guard in the SanFran Walgreens who just let the shoplifter ride his bike out of the store.
Sadly for them, the looters are taking South Africa back to the 8th Century. Check out this Twitter thread with its videos of destruction. Unreal.
