    How about the two stealing the telephone pole... Do you think they ate that or sat on it?

    Not all of these looters are in dire straights. I remember that some arrested during Katrina were correction officers and there were a couple of police.

    Predatory opportunism knows no class.

    People who steal should be arrested. They committed a crime. Suggesting that they get a death sentence is barbaric. Obviously, there are crimes, and then there are crimes. Each one has to be evaluated individually, and dealt with appropriately.

    Stealing Nikes has to be considered a crime. Stealing telephone poles? Well, I don't know what the word is for that. But stealing food if you are in the middle of a natural disaster and you have a hungry family does begin to sound like Les Miz.

    In Florida... if that telephone pole is worth more than $300 it's GRAND Larceny..

    I agree. Besides which, times are probably hard for the store owner, too.

    And I bet it's worth a whole lot more than that. I think looting (not talking about Jean Valjean's loaf of bread) is despicable. It takes advantage of the misfortune of others.

    For sure! Can you imagine some homeowner in Texas or Florida returning home for the first time in days, only to find some scumbag going through the debris, looking for something of value? That kind of low life deserves to find out what the business end of a shotgun feels like.
    Things get better with age....I'm approaching Magnificent.

    Don, I agreed with you until you got to the "business end of a shotgun" part. That's what the police and the judicial system are for, not some lunatic running around trying to act out some scenario from the old days of the "Wild West." Vigilante justice is never a good idea. Once we start relying on that, civilization goes out the window.

    Everybody has a cell phone. You see looters? Call the police!

    Again... I know it feels good to talk that way Don... BUT in reality theft is not punishable by death.
