The death of an Oakland security guard who was shot while trying to stop a thug from robbing a local news station reporter has reignited anger against the left-wing elitists who continue to downplay crime and its effect on working class communities.
Kevin Nishita, a security guard with the Star Protection Agency, was providing security last Wednesday as a local news station KRON reporter was reporting on the recent hash of flash mob robberies in the area when they themselves became the latest victims.
“At 12:20 p.m. Wednesday, an assailant attempted to steal KRON4’s camera equipment. … The armed guard [Nishita] was shot in the lower abdomen. The reporter was not physically injured,” KRON reported.
“The guard was rushed to Highland Hospital Wednesday afternoon in critical condition before undergoing surgery. A Berkeley man standing nearby was hit by bullet shrapnel, Oakland police said. He was treated at a hospital and listed in stable condition.”
Nishita died three days later, leaving behind a wife, two children and three grandchildren.
We mourn the loss of retired police officer Kevin Nishita who honorably served our Bay Area Community. He was protecting/guarding a local news crew when he was senselessly murdered. Today, we escorted his body from the hospital with full law enforcement honors. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/ZbKRn7J732

His death provoked an outpouring of grief, horror and sadness from his colleagues both in the news industry and the law enforcement community.
Here’s a small sample of that:
My heart is broken. I’m scared for me. I’m scared for my colleagues. Friends from all stations are talking to each other-our own support group. And then woke up to heartbreak. He was my friend. He was our friend and now he is gone @kron4news

Not the news any of us wanted to share this morning. My heart breaks for our security guard’s family, and our entire KRON4 news family. This is so senseless. Reward now $32,500 https://t.co/Ks7uOYHthi

Kevin was genuine, humble and always did the job with a smile on his face.
He was our private security guard that kept our team and numerous other Bay Area reporters safe while our in the field.
Kevin will be missed. https://t.co/j3KyaTBWn4

But his death also provoked anger at the liberal elitists who’ve sought to downplay the recent hash of robberies and thuggery occurring in California.
Elitists like Hollywood liberal Seth Rogen, who last week mocked a YouTube influencer for complaining about the crime specifically in Los Angeles.
The influencer, Casey Neistat, complained in a tweet posted last Wednesday morning — the same day that Nishkin was shot — that his family’s “cars got robbed this morning because Los Angeles is a crime riddled 3rd world shithole.”
Rogen responded by calling him crazy, describing Los Angeles as “lovely” and suggesting that dealing with robberies is part and parcel of “living in a big city.”
He added that he feels there’s no point to getting angry over being robbed.
“You can be mad but I guess I don’t personally view my car as an extension of myself and I’ve never really felt violated any of the 15 or so times my car was broken in to. Once a guy accidentally left a cool knife in my car so if it keeps happening you might get a little treat,” he wrote.
Note that Rogen is worth an estimated $80 million.

His flippant dismissal of crime triggered widespread backlash, prompting him to double down by posting a nasty tweet mocking his critics.
Look (*Language warning):
A lot of people come at me and talk shit on Twitter hoping I’ll engage with them publicly and give them attention, but instead I DM them and tell them to go fuck themselves privately. It’s a lot more fun.

Following Nishita’s tragic death, the number and ferocity of his critics grew by leaps and bounds, with some attributing the nationwide uptick in crime on the normalization of criminals by the likes of him and other left-wing elitists. *Caution: Adult Language.
Fuck you!!!! Are you happy now? You normalize criminals. A security guard is dead. Roll with it. Karma will get back at you like a bitch.

@Sethrogen hey want to tell everyone that we are all overreacting and we shouldn’t look at the security guard as an extension of ourselves?

Look, just because @Sethrogen thinks being robbed, raped, beaten and killed is just “one of those things” you just have to deal with in LA, doesn’t mean he doesn’t care. It means he just doesn’t care when it happens to anyone except him.

i don’t give a fuck if you talk to me or not. meanwhile in the shithole SF to the north of shithole LA, a security guard was shot and killed in a mass looting event, the same kind of crap going on in shithole LA. maybe u can take 2 seconds out to tweet something about it.

Note how the latter user urged Rogen to at least “take 2 seconds out to tweet something” about the robbery and killing in Oakland.
But no, Rogen hasn’t tweeted anything about it. Nor has he tweeted anything about the Waukesha rampage that left six people, including a child, dead.
The only “victims” he appears to care about are the ones like the three criminals — one a convicted child molester, the other a known woman beater — whom Kyle Rittenhouse shot during the Kenosha riots in 2020 in self-defense:
As for Nishita, as for 11-year-old Jessalyn Torres and as for the countless other everyday Americans who have suffered because of the criminals he routinely defends, he doesn’t seem to care …
