The looters warrant no sympathy or consideration from me and should be shot. This is pure and repugnant opportunism.

They end up punishing themselves because once this is all over its THEIR community that is destroyed and they will end up having to pay heavily inflated prices for everything that will then be in short supply and widely unavailable within their own community as they have to drive elsewhere to obtain the most basic goods. It's a terribly ignorant and short sited thing and when its all over the very mourns who have destroyed their own community are going to try to scapegoat someone else to avoid their own responsibility.

If this story is accurate I have no sympathy for looters and arsonists who are taking advantage of a tragedy for personal material gains.

no but it certainly is a predictable response from a disenfranchised and poorly educated populace that for the most part has little experience or reason for long term planning
