after katrina, i wouldn't call taking food,medical supplies and things that be might need to survive looting.
it was needed, and i'm sure the people who lost this kind of stuff to victims, although hurt, understood the need.
what i do call looting are the one who took 50pairs of nike's, or washing machnes, dryers, tv's and stereo's, jewelery, clothes that are extremly
expensive and inappropriate for wearing in the situation they were in.
i mean what you gonna do with it, it's gonna be month's before power is back on, and you ain't gonna go to any party's. people whole took these kind
of things are nothing but plain out thieves.
now as far as the japaneses go, there old way of life back before cook sailed in, was based a lot on honor, and they took pride in the way they lived.
i believe that a lot of them still hold on to that tradition and thats why you don't see it there.
also japan is pretty well emergency ready , and they respond to thing pdq. but in some thing as big as this no country can be 100% prepared.
