All looters are dying of starvation.
All abortions are because of rape.
All illegal immigrants are asylum seekers.
All Republicans are Hitler.
No gays are Pedos.
No blacks are racist.
All women are victims. Except Tara Reade.

I don’t know what is so hard to understand about any of this.

No of course not, but the reverse is also not 100%

1. In a real, "government of the people, by the people". "You loot, we shoot",.... That is actually a "codified"/"law", ...in The U.S.A.

2. "Civilization/civilians",...must protect themselves, from "Barbarians". Being "barbarian" or "civilized", depends on "social standards"

3. "Civilization/civilians" can not depend, on "the hired help" to do it for them. .... That's just a historical fact.

4. That brings us to. ... Regarding "democracy". No "civil people/civilization", wants a majority of barbarians.

5. Which brings us back to #1 and why The U S.A., is a "Constitutional Republic" and not a "democracy". Because if you loot, we shoot. Doesn't matter who you are, civilian or "government". ... Being civil, ain't rocket science and doesn't require much "education".

Good for Florida, nobody should be allowed to come and take what it does not belong to them, Shoot ask question later, the law of the land in Florida.

Looting from homes of people who had to evacuate or had their homes destroyed is the epitome of callousness.


That's not really looting. That's burglary. Looting is always done during some kind of mass hysteria, usually after a natural disaster or during a riot.

Kyle Rittenhouse won his case through self-defense. It would have been illegal for him to have killed those people in defense of property.


Different state... Different laws... In WA where I live, a cop friend told me no matter what just say I was in fear of my life...end of story...




There was a video of looters stealing TV in a reply post above yours.


Stealing from a box store or stealing in a home/car invasion are two totally different events.

You have no idea do you?

Looting is the act of stealing, or the taking of goods by force, typically in the midst of a military, political, or other social crisis, such as war,[1] natural disasters (where law and civil enforcement are temporarily ineffective),[2] or rioting.[3] The proceeds of all these activities can be described as booty, loot, plunder, spoils, or pillage.[4][5]
link The very fact it occurs during a natural disaster makes it Looting!

Contextually this is a different circumstance than just run of the mill stealing.

Imagine trying to get your life together after a huge natural disaster while law enforcement is stretched thin and some people are acting as if it’s a free for all.

If someone has the capacity to prey on people trying to get their lives back in order, best not to make assumptions on what else they’re capable of.


Well we also need to understand you better not be "wandering" in an area you do not live in. First it is typically illegal to do that after a disaster, and second if you are a stranger there the locals might not take too kindly to you.

Some fellow Americans, our country folk, have lost, just about everything, other than their life. Picking up what is left of their history, and property. Then sustaining them , till they can stand again. Should be the/our priority.
Doesn't matter the color of skin, or genetic heritage. They're our people! Americans!

The heathen, barbaric, scum,... that want to take advantage of their own people's misfortune, need to be properly "educated". (That means sent away, off the planet).
I have no feelings/emotions, for what happens to scum bags, that'll kick/steal from a fellow American. Especially when they're already down.

Give them a one way ticket to the Lord. ...He knows what to do with them kind.

Is always those opportunistic maggots that will feed of the misery of hard-working Americans, it is despicable, but it happens, also is gangs that will come from other states to just create mayhem too.

Soo I am glad that DeSantis is taking care of Floridians first and give them the tools to defend themselves and their property.

My son lives in St. Pete and he is a homeowner, I am glad he can defend his home and his property from the maggots.

Here's the way I see it. Scoping out a house that has been evacuated, but is otherwise intact, is breaking and entering and burglary. Stealing from a home that's been destroyed, due to war or a natural disaster, is looting. Stealing from a big box store in the midst of a melee, like we've seen teen gangs do at various stores, and during natural disasters, is looting.

Also, stealing food, water and medical supplies in retail stores, in the aftermath of a disaster, is also looting.

Agreed that taking advantage of a disaster, to steal and damage the property of others, is despicable.
It's not predatory behavior : but more parasitic, or scavenger-like.

It's sad to me, that it's even a thing with humans : but similar things do happen throughout nature.
From penguins, other birds, some kinds of fish robbing nesting materials, to things like seagulls turning on a weak member of the flock, and pecking them to death.

Thousands and thousands of people out there, planning long and hard, how to scam honest people out-of their stuff.
Blows my mind sometimes, to contemplate what humanity could have achieved, if our Masters™ weren't such parasites, that they have turned 90% of us into ponies hauling carts, chasing carrots.

Imagine if all of those criminal minds, along with all of the brilliant folks working in Marketing™ and Advertising™ : would dedicate their efforts to helping others, in a Star-Trek type of society ?

So yeah : we're still animalistic, but we can also see how far we could go, if we weren't constantly being corralled into a materialistic lifestyle.

My view of looters includes all of that : they're just acting on dumb animalistic instincts ;
while also brainwashed into BS Materialism™.

I have a feeling we’re not actually going to hear too many stories of people getting shot there though.

I think it’s probably a hyperbolic reminder that the state allows stand your ground to deter people from looting.

And I’d assume most citizens down there wouldn’t be quick to pull the trigger. More likely to say scram or I will shoot. Most people don’t want to take the life of another.

Taking something that doesn't belong to you, or that you didn't work for, or pay for, or earn, .... Is exactly what "stealing" is!

You think the "box store" owner , doesn't have a "debt" to pay?

Trust me, the "insurance company", you think/believe, will recoup the loss of the "box store" owner.

That insurance company, will stay in business. You know how? Because "the insurance company" cost,... will be spread around to other clients/customers...that by "law", have to have "insurance", to make a living.
You dip #s, you pay the price. You get "socialism" wether voted for it, or not..

You worthless MFker! What a shame.

Stealing", is stealing! Doesn't matter who it is from.

If it doesn't belong to you, and you "found" it?.. Your "duty" is to find the owner, or put it back down and forget about it.
If you can't handle,...
the. "responsibilities" of "duty"/"obligation", or "personal honor".

The way you two think? Don't touch #, that doesn't belong to you! ...Would be my best advice.

I hail from Oregon. I can honestly say, I was of the first,
of my fellow Americans on the ground, after Katrina hit Louisiana. .. I am proud and honored, that I can say, I was there to help in anyway that I could.

The big "question ", when we hit ground? Was "weapons"? What do we do? (I was in an MP Unit that had never had to enforce "military law" let alone, "civil/civilian" law).
And I was just the "Motor Sergeant". But that didn't matter to me.

I took an oath to defend the C.O.T.U.S., ...just like any other American Soldier.
No self respecting American, Civilian or Soldier, would disarm a fellow American, unless they are asking for It.

All That Gov. DeSantis is doing? Is reminding the heathen people, that a "free people", are "armed".

But? If I was "The Governor"?
I would've went a step farther, and activated "the state militia".

Then any heathen violating "The Law"? Is under "State Courts Martial Code", not civil code. (Penalty, is higher).
Governor's have a lot of authority/power by law.
If they have the guts to use it, and buck the Feds.

It absolutely is "predatory behavior"!
How do you figure it is not?
Anything, person or animal, that is intelligent enough to attack/assault, at any sign or advantage of weakness? Is intelligent enough to be classified as a predator and be held accountable as such.

Ticks are parasitic. Wolves are predators. Wolves will attack and eat you. A lot of things in "nature" will, and they have ticks. But, ...
you don't kill a wolf when it attacks you, because it has ticks.

You have weird logic and reasoning.

After being flooded several times in NJ, we know first-hand what it's like to be robbed -
After Hurricane Irene, it was mandatory evacuation, they came and took everyone out in boats.
And local police did not watch the area - when we went back, everyone had been robbed.
Desantis for President!!

Sounds like you have never been through it -
When you are evacuated and the lowlifes and thieves have robbed you, then you'll know what it's like.
And believe me, you will never look at it the same.
