Shoot the Looters

With looting now getting started by the scum bags that stayed behind just for that reason in the hurrican torn south, we need to start addressing it. I feel that anyone that is caught with things that are not for sustinance such as food and water should be shot on sight no questions asked.


yeah, of course.. murder is nothing compared to stealing.

Looters should be shot....They were shot after hurricane Andrew, they will be shot now.Anybody who willingly lives below sea level ON THE COAST even, deserves thier slow hungry death.NO has been warned for years! that this would happen.I dont feel sorry at all for anyone there.It's like people who live on a fault line....they are asking for it.

Nice attitude. No recognition of the fact that the majority of people who are now stuck in NO wanted to get out and couldn't. They live in poverty, they had no transportation, and now they have NOTHING! If only the resources to get them out and somewhere had been available ahead of time....

Even now I bet the good majority of them are just waiting there hopelessly, with no past, present or future, wondering where is the government and why is it taking so long. They are trapped with no options and probably scared to death. I wonder how many would have been thrilled to be in an internment camp now, at least they would be being fed, and have basic human needs being met.

Oh, and yes, the NWO would really be be making headway in their grand scheme with that.

Some people have been noticing what seems to be racial bias when it comes to captions for the pictures on Yahoo!. Blacks are being frequently portrayed as looters whereas the whites are not. Nevermind that the Governor herself has excused many of these so called "looters" who are people trapped in the city, without supplies.

To illustrate what I'm talking about...






What's the difference between what those people are doing? So the ones on the top "found" groceries in a store, the kid on the bottom looted them.

Answer to your question. NOT A DAMNED THING!

And THANK YOU for bringing this to light. What a crock of crap.

if i was stuck in the same situation i wouldnt think twice about borrowing some food or supplies that i need


...just to be shot by some looney from the roof of his house?

and BTW anything found on the sea can be claimed by the one who found it...since the whole city is underwater, i guess its a fair game anyway

The award for most creative New Orleans citizen goes to this guy, IMO. A block of styrofoam, an umbrella and a pole is all he needed...

Ha. When I see that picture I can't help but think of those guys who push the boats around in Venice.

Regarding the so-called looting... The problem with shooting people is that you have no way of differentiating between those who are stealing and those who are taking what they need so they don't starve to death. I think it's safe to say that if someone's hauling away a big-screen TV, they're probably up to no good. Food? That's different.

This comment miffed me somewhat:




Biloxi Mayor AJ Holloway described the hurricane as "our tsunami".

"We are still in the search and rescue mode," Mr Holloway told the Biloxi Sun Herald newspaper.

This is nothing like on the scale of the Tsunami. Whilst I appreciate the damage is extensive, it pales in comparison to the destruction caused by the Tsunami.

Seems like the old "We're number 1!" thing crops up again....

Your comment has `miffed` me - disregarding life

uk.news.yahoo.com...


In the Mississippi coastal city of Biloxi, hundreds may have been killed after being trapped in their homes when a 30-foot (9 metre) storm surge came ashore, a city spokesman said.


the asian tsunami was a 10 meter wave

so with a wave just 1 meter smaller , its not a disaster? most of Biloxi has been washed away

Well, I guess if you're hell-bent on reading a negative attitude into it you could manage to squeeze that out of it. In that man's world, this is his people's tsunami. He never once implied that the "scale" is as great, but that the destruction in his area is "their tsunami". I'm sure he genuinely feels that way right now and I personally don't have the least urge to read arrogance into his statement.

I just heard on the morning news that the police are now caring automatic weapons, for some reason this makes me nervous about things to come.

My stance on the looters is fairly clear. Supplies needed for survival should be looted freely, if I were a shop owner I think I'd be able to put my greed aside and give what needs to be given. However stealing unnessesary stuff, like TV's is just flat out greed and needs to be handled with force.

From what I understand, all the weapons from the looted Super Wal-Mart in Jefferson Parish have been stolen and I guess guns are a hot commodity for looters right now. Supposedly there are "gangs of armed men roaming the streets in the city" (according to one source) so maybe that is why the cops have automatics, but who knows what is propaganda and what isn't. I know there were reports of one policeman who was shot in the head by a looter but he is expected to recover.

Maybe with this forced complete evacuation they are calling for now, it will diffuse some of the tension. With the heat and humidity that is typical for this time of year, the situation has got to be simply intolerable there.

Personally, if I was a shop owner, I'd find me a small powerboat and get the hell out of there, go to someplace dry (a few towns to the East), and visit an ATM and get some money out of an account with a nation-wide bank, and get a decent hotel room to safely fill out my insurance forms, but that's just me....
I damn sure wouldn't be wading around in waist deep water with a shotgun like some hillbilly on a front porch, waiting for a looter to plug me with a stolen Wal-Mart shotgun, just to protect a few groceries....

Are the cases of looting real or is it more of an over reaction to some small thefts ? If it is as bad as it seems here, then - is it not safe to assume that the US doesn't have to go across the ocean for terrorists, you have them here living beside you...

Sad, that when the going gets tough it seems that some people would rather act like the classless, animals they apparently are.

This whole situation is a mess. If I lived in N.O. I would surely find food and water. Considering everything is under water the only choice is to find provisions until rescued or die! Im not going to just starve or go without water in a situation like that because of some question of morality. But im also not going to go on a shopping spree with two or three carts full of food..Overboard!.. As far as stealing TV’s and such, the people that are doing this are the lowest of lowlifes. And yes there is a difference between surviving until you get rescued and acting like a wild animal. Besides ... where are these retards going to take these TV’s and DVD players and stolen goods??? They are not going anywhere. Are they going to speedboat the stolen loot out of the city? My guess is they will retrieve all the jewelry and stolen items when they evacuate and rescue everyone. And most of the stolen electronics will meet the same fate as if they would have been left in the storefront. Once these professional retards realize they have no house to put this stuff in then they are going to ditch the loot in order to get rescued. I can picture it now... "Jamal was rescued with a bag full of gold necklaces a pistol, fine china and a 40oz and promptly arrested".
