    Ya know I understand that its a bad situation down there on the Gulf but there is no excuse for all the looting that is going on. Why is it that they have to take advantage of such a situation? I guess I shouldnt be suprised that these low lifes have no respect or care for others.... Looking at this picture makes me wanna go down there and string these people by the necks..... [​IMG]

    This should be a "caption this";

    "Dang, can you believe they don't have these shoes in size 8? Pft, this is the last time I loot this place!"


    I wonder how the law is for the store owner. I'm sure he'll get some insurance money if his insurance company is still in business after this, but I wonder if he'd be within his legal sphere if he just perched on the counter and shot anyone that entered...

    I heard on news radio tonight that the mayor directed all police and local law enforcement to put their efforts toward stopping the looting and leave the rescuing to the national guard. I'm sure that will be great... Weren't the police doing some looting?

    This reminds me of the Rodney King days. I wonder how the Black community will make an excuse for this one :wink1:

    Thier homes are flooded, so where are they taking all the stuff they've been looting ??? Think any of them have figured out that with no power, there are no alarms at the banks. Hummm, welding shop for cutting torch, hit the banks. Oh don't forget the big ol'duffle bag too carry all the money from the banks.

    Yea we were complaining at work today that all the looting videos were racist.....They didn't show any white people :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

    I think they shoud evacuate the city by the weekend and then put some AH-1T's and a few AAV's and LAV's on security duty :D

    Their homes are probably in other city's. But I'd guess they're not actually thinking that far ahead. I'd bet people that commit a crime openly enough to have their faces caught on camera by a passer-by rarely think much further ahead than "How much can I carry?"

    That actually occurred to me. I was thinking the reallly smart looters are doing that and making sure they don't get caught.
    But then again, I'm sure the banks have the foresight and budget to send armed guards to the area...

    Earlier today on Fox news, there were talking about people walking around with AK-47's. I'm telling you, if I worked as security in a bank down there, I wouldn't show up for work.

    yeah, it's pretty sickening.

    I don't think any of us would care if someone was just getting something to eat for their family.. being in that situation.. but the blatant theft of stuff they don't need here and now is .. well it just makes you want to puke.

    Such obtuse morality fed by a false need for things instilled by dubious sources....

    Jesus

    I don't think anyone is looting for basic t shirts and utitilitarian items. Screw that, let's get the shiny stuff

    I guess they want to look their best at the Saints home opener :rolleyes:
    A real human being would be trying to help rescue people or get to safer ground.

    Everything around you is gone, you have no home, no job, no power, no food. You are knee deep in rancid water and there is not a drop to drink. The first thing you acomplish is getting some free jersey's and designer shoes? I have a blind spot for stealing bread and canned food, but the places that get looted do no good for the current.
