Not gonna click on it (cause I'd just get irritated)

Said it before & will say it again: In 1977 when Johnstown was devastated by a flood (77 dead); the mayor issued a public edict, "looters will be shot on sight" and ya know what? there wasn't much looting after that.

Sad part is, the looters will trun people off from helping those genuinely in need...

"can I borrow your car?" -looter. What a dumbshit.

youd likely be more than irritated. its beyond what you would even be able to consider unreasonable.

...just wait till someone ODs on looted drugs and the family sues because no effort was made to secure such things.

What do you do?

You are at your home......you are tired and scared. Almost everything you own is gone, the little you have left is being taken by a gang of looters.

There is no 911 and the Police and National Guard that are around are too busy or do not care.

The looters are coming for your food and water................and they are prepared to go through you to get it.

If you fire to protect yourself, the police will THEN COME (heard the shot) and take YOU away, then your family and home are left defenseless.

A no win situation....................

Police commandeer pharmacy
At a drug store on Canal Street just outside the French Quarter, two police officers with pump shotguns stood guard as workers from the Ritz-Carlton Hotel across the street loaded large laundry bins full of medications, snack foods and bottled water.

“This is for the sick,” Officer Jeff Jacob said. “We can commandeer whatever we see fit, whatever is necessary to maintain law.”


Another officer, D.J. Butler, told the crowd standing around that they would be out of the way as soon as they got the necessities.

“I’m not saying you’re welcome to it,” the officer said. “This is the situation we’re in. We have to make the best of it.”

The looting was taking place in full view of passing National Guard trucks and police cruisers.



How about that angle?

ETA: That is starting to really burn me. When I do it for me or mine it's looting. When uncle suger does it in force that's all fine and dandy.

No I think he's right. He coudl have handled it better though, like stating how the state will probably re-emburse the store owner for whatever was taken. (At least they better)
There's a big difference in stealing jeans for your homies and taking medication to help sick and injured. The officer could have been a little more diplomatic about it, but he was in the right.

Nope.
Sorry - .gov can take ANYTHING you have if they deem it neccessary for the re-building effort, common good, etc.
In addition they can "draft" you to serve as labor in the rebuilding effort.
Aren't executive orders fun?
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 12:59:33 PM EDT
So I guess the lesson ehre is that if I can roll up to a drugstore with enough firepower, I can commandeer as I see fit too?

As for the looters - all I can say is that alligators, disease, and storeowners' bullets don't know that you're "oppressed," and don't care.

Looters are "oppressed" suppressed people


Or at least they would be if they showed up at my door. As in under suppressive fire. . . .

But those cops are no better than the looters. Stealing is stealing. Just because you have a badge doesnt make it right.

Some in the crowd splashed into the waist-deep water like giddy children at the beach.




Do you think that these folks are smart enough to figure out that the water is full of nasty stuff like sewage??? There are going to be some very very sick people in the next couple of days.

Did you actually read the post? Two cops were standing by as employees of the Rits-Carlton loaded up the medicines. Would you rather some drug addict/looters came and took it? You jump to a big conclusion that they are stealing it for thier own profit. Although that is possible, it is just as likely or more likely they were doing it for good.

Cop bashers crack me up sometimes at how fast they will jump to a negative opinion of Law Enforcement.

Being too lazy to get an education or a job, collecting welfare all your life, and receiving free housing does not make you "opressed" and grant you free pass to be a dirty thieving POS.

That is all.

The cops' rationalization for looting doesn't matter in the least. Theft is theft. If they plan to compensate the store owner, then it's an entirely different matter, but the article makes no mention of that. So we're left to conclude that the cops were aiding and abetting thieves.

I GUESS ADVOCATING THE MURDER OF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS IS NOT A CoC VIOLATION

You ask where will it stop? Who knows. All I know is I came to ARFCOM in 2002. Back then, things were great. Now, it's full of asshats crapping out this LEO hate.

Ok, I'll bite

They (leo) are not "enforcing a law" if they are looting, they are looters.

That being said, if a stockpile of resources is being "utilized" then that is what will happen for the common good (hopefully)

But if joe citizen has a house/business/cash of defended supplies, and is being assaulted....well you know the drill.
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 10:34:44 PM EDT
I think it's funny how the cop they interviewed said that they "can comandeer anything they want to maintain law."

Strictly speaking, conspiring with looters is a violation of the law.

Now, to maintain order? sure, thats plausible. But the law? Sounds to me the cop they interviewed seems to think that the Law is whatever he decides it is.
