Looters in N.O. Should be hobbled
    #4605880 - 08/31/05 11:15 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

It's one thing if you really are out of food in a situation like that and you take basic foodstuffs from an abandoned grocery store. Were I in that position, I'd return later and offer to pay for what I took. People stealing CASES of liquor, guns, cigarettes, TV's, DVD players, I think that they should be shot in the ankle and left there.

I honestly don't see what the big deal is. Who is getting hurt? The store owners? It's covered by insurance. The insurance agencies? They pay either way.

It may not be the most dignified thing to do, but in the circumstances it's very .. cold to look down on the people taking things.

I'd steal a case of liquor myself. Several, at that. I guess I'm just a thieving lib fag.

Unless it is food or other necessities, there is no excuse for looting. They are only trying to profit off of a horrible catastrophe.

It's funny that they're getting drunk in broken houses located in a city being flooded after a devastating hurricane. Alcohol would probably be the last thing on my mind, at least for a few hours.

That must be an experience to remember.

Ok, what if you consider their psychological needs? They can't buy comforts to ease them back into normal-mode, so how else are they supposed to get them?

Sorry. It was too great a picture. A balding black man so overloaded with Heineken he has a bottle stashed in his back pocket. I thought only honkeys drank Heineken.

"Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco said she was "just furious" about the lawlessness.

"We'll do what it takes to bring law and order to our region," she said at a news conference.

Nagin ordered most of the city's police to halt their rescue efforts and concentrate instead on stopping looters who have grown more aggressive, the AP reported.

Some of the looting was taking place in front of police, with little response. Along Canal Street, the city's main thoroughfare, police allowed people to take shoes out of stores as long as the shoes fit.

nature goes in my 'shit happens' category. they set up shop right near a hurricane zone and overpopulated the motherfucker. just because its in america and something bad happens to it does not qualify it as a horrible catastrophe. $.02

I have money. The only reason that I'd be looting would be because the stores aren't open to accept my money and leaving it there would be stupid.

So if you could steal something and get away with it, if you were 100% sure not to be found out, you are saying that you'd do that without reservation?

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

They should shoot anyone who is taking anything other than food or necessary supplies.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis
