How would you know if there had been? The old paradigm about us having a free and open press is no longer valid. I read a number of personal reports about looting and violence in many areas during and after the storm. Without fair and objective reporting, these widespread acts remain nothing but isolated incidents. It should come as no surprise that the liberal news media was so corruptly biased for Obama that they wouldn't dare report these events so close to the election. It did not and still does not fit their narrative about the re-coronation of their candidate.
I’m at the Jersey Shore. While the devastation is amazing to me - and ongoing - there has been little looting.
I live in the heart of the hardest hit area of New Jersey. I know the worst affected areas well. There was no looting. In fact, there was less property crime than normal.
