Michael Rapaport filmed the moment a brazen thief sauntered out of a Rite Aid in the Upper East side of New York City with two shopping bags full of stolen goods, calling it 'pathetic' that brazen crime continues to spiral in the Big Apple because of soft-on-crime policies. The actor and comedian, who posted footage of the incident on Instagram, told DailyMail.com that he was ‘disgusted’ and ‘surprised’ when he saw the thief stocking up on items from three different sections of the pharmacy before deciding he was satisfied. 'These criminals know there are no ramifications. We have to put more of these mfers in jail,' he said. The Rite Aid in the video, on 81st Street and 1st Avenue, is hit with thefts of the same nature on an almost daily basis, a security guard told Rapaport. The location will be closing on February 15, along with 63 other locations to close in the coming months with thefts a major reason, the pharmacy chain announced late December. ‘You see all these videos on Instagram of people shoplifting like they’re going for a walk in the park, Rapaport added. ‘It’s pathetic that this is happening in the greatest city in the world.'

Inside San Francisco's open air drug market that proves why city's woke effort to connect homeless addicts to rehab is NOT working - as users shoot up, pass out and scatter their needles
A new 'linkage center' aimed at connecting homeless street addicts with drug rehab facilities opened in San Francisco last week - but distressing images show an open air illicit drug consumption site that is now littered with needles and crowded with addicts shooting up in broad daylight. Images taken by DailyMail.com show slumped over in a wheelchair, her pants down around her ankles, preparing to inject a needle into her thigh. The woman sitting on the ground next to her has a needle to her neck. Many others are sitting on the ground among trash, empty food containers and dirty blankets, as they fumble in with drug paraphernalia in the cold weather. The center, which opened on January 18, is part of the San Francisco Mayor London Breed's Tenderloin Emergency Intervention plan introduced last year. The linkage center is located at 1172 Market Street, in the United Nations Plaza, the city's largest open air drug market. The supervised drug consumption area is an outdoor fenced section of the linkage center. A month earlier, Breed declared a state of emergency in Tenderloin and announced a sweeping crackdown on open air drug use and drug dealing in the downtown neighborhood - one of the city's poorest and most drug-infested areas. The Tenderloin has long been an epicenter of homelessness and drug use, but city officials said the problem has worsened as the national opioid crisis escalated over the course of the pandemic.

A load of hot air: Experts say Biden's offer to replace Europe's gas supplies if Putin turns off the taps 'is just not physically possible' - because 'there's not enough gas out there'
Experts are concerned that President Joe Biden's plan to shore up Europe's supply of natural gas if Vladimir Putin cuts off supplies won't work because other nations can't make up the shortfall. 'If Russia were to completely turn off the taps we can't make that up,' Samantha Gross, the Director of Energy Security and Climate Initiative at the Brookings Institution, told DailyMail.com. 'Other suppliers can make that up. It's just not physically possible.' The Biden administration is preparing contingency plans in case Russia cuts off its energy supplies - a scenario European allies fear will come to pass if Moscow invades the Ukraine.
It's minus 8C on the front line. All that stands between me and 127,000 Russian troops is a six-foot moat and razor wire: IAN BIRRELL reports from Ukraine's border as Vladimir Putin's soldiers look poised to move in
IAN BIRRELL: As Lieutenant-Colonel Yuriy Trubachiov crunched thr-ough the thick snow, he pointed out to me the camera tower, the anti-tank moat, the mounds of shovelled earth and the razor-wire fences separating Ukraine from Russia. 'We're our country's first line of defence,' he told me. 'We're getting ready for all sorts of scenarios to ensure that we protect our borders.' This might seem a daunting task with huge numbers of Russian troops massing beyond the fields and forests in the distance and amid rapidly escalating talk of invasion - but the veteran border officer said his men are ready to repel Vladimir Putin's forces.

Mariana Zhaglo is far from a typical Ukrainian soldier, but the 52-year-old marketing researcher has said she is willing to do whatever it takes to defend her country. 'As a mother I do not want my children to inherit Ukraine's problems, or have these threats passed on to them. It is better that I deal with this now,' Zhaglo said, showing off her new rifle (left). The marketing research is just one of thousands of Ukrainians who recently joined the nation's Territorial Defence Forces (TDF) (training pictured right) - a voluntary section of the army which has seen its numbers swell amid rising tensions on the Russian border. It comes as French President Emmanuel Macron today became the latest Western leader to promise a 'retaliation' should Russia proceed with an invasion of its neighbour (Russian President Vladimir Putin inset)

A wife of a gravely ill father-of-two slammed a Boston hospital for taking her husband off the heart transplant list because he's unvaccinated, stating they have been pushed into a 'corner' and 'pressured' to 'choose a shot that could kill him.'
