January 1, Woman Sets Target on Fire in Plot to Steal Baby Formula



In an alarming sign of the times, a woman took desperate measures in a local Target store, not for high-end electronics or luxury items, but for something as fundamental as baby formula.

This underscores a troubling commentary on our current society’s state of affairs, particularly for those yearning for the traditional values and security once considered the bedrock of this nation.

“A woman who ignited a fire inside of a Target store reportedly did so in an attempt to steal baby formula,” as per the statement from the Buena Park Police Department.

On the evening of September 5th, the local Target on 7530 Orangethorpe Avenue became the scene of this daring act. The responsible party, Cynthia Torres, 40, has since been apprehended. It’s indeed unsettling to ponder what could push someone to such lengths. For our readers, it might harken back to a time when respect for law and order and moral fabric was paramount.

Eyewitness accounts depict a horrifying scenario, with flames ravaging the children’s attire section, reaching perilous heights, “even reaching the store’s ceiling.” The brave staff of Target swiftly intervened, managing to suppress much of the inferno before the arrival of the first responders.

The resulting aftermath is grim. “The fire caused around $500,000 worth of structural damage and around $1 million in retail loss,” with the bulk of this loss attributed to the after-effects of smoke and water.

Though material losses can be quantified, the trauma experienced by unsuspecting shoppers, who were caught in a haze of “heavy smoke throughout the building,” might not be as easily measured.

In what can only be described as a bizarre twist, authorities have confirmed the fire’s intent: to serve as a smokescreen so that Torres “could steal baby formula.”

Currently, Ms. Torres awaits her fate from within the confines of the Orange County jail, her bail set at a hefty “$250,000,” according to official jail records.

Bottom Line

The gravity of this incident reminds us of the changing times and the palpable shift in societal values. The real question remains: In a country once heralded for its prosperity and moral standing, what has led us to a juncture where individuals are resorting to such drastic measures for the most basic of necessities?

    Target should send the fire bill to Joe Biden. He doesn’t care about businesses and people. He likes people suffering. A evil man who likes criminals and traitors. Just look at Maui, $ 700 to these people but illegals get $ 2,240 A month. Seniors get about $ 1400 A month. The shaft to the American people from the worst president in America.

    When you have a President with a vacuum where his brain
    is supposed to be and who is willing to destroy what was
    the greatest country on earth to appease every fringe
    group he can find and his elite puppet masters and sacrifice
    everything and everybody else, it creates desperation and
    desperate people will do desperate things.
    This kind of act that took place in Target cannot be justified
    but probably is just the beginning of things to come.
    I fear much worse lies ahead.

    The core of a lot of problems today is drugs. Having dealt with it professionally, and with close persons, it doesn’t take long to realize drug addicts will do any immoral act to get their next fix; lying, stealing, violence are all part of the mix. And, putting themselves above their children,spouses, and immediate family is par for the course.

    I hope the recklessly irresponsible arsonist loses custody of her child, or children, and receives a well-deserved punishment of spending a long, long, long time in prison. When violent criminals commit acts of destruction against businesses that communities rely on for their food, their health and their well-being, after a certain point, the business owners take a look at their profit and loss statements, decide that it’s time to close down their business in that location, at which point that community, at a minimum, turns into a food desert, and the community becomes more of a ghetto community, as a result.

    Many years ago the government took Jesus out of schools. Now we’re seeing the results.
