VIDEO AT LINK

A Houston mother with her two young children in a vehicle was fatally wounded after being involved in a car crash Wednesday afternoon, but it’s what happened after that stunned onlookers.

Eyewitnesses told police that people were spotted stealing groceries out of the front seat of the dead woman’s Toyota 4-Runner, KTRK-TV reported.

“You see the person dead. How do you feel taking the person’s groceries?” onlooker Sheila Katoo told the local ABC affiliate.

“It’s unbelievable, I have never heard of such a thing,” another witness said.

It seems to be happening everywhere, like a collective loss of any sense of right and wrong.

November 6, 2012 proved that theory beyond a shadow of doubt.

I’ve seen some Civil War era photos of dead soldiers. No boots, pockets turned inside out.

When I travel and I’m alone, I put a waterproof note saying where I’m staying and how to contact my next of kin inside one sock and in a pocket that contains nothing else. I figure the one I keep in my wallet will be lost to the first person who finds me or whoever did me in.

Coupled with “no sense of right and wrong” is the sense of entitlement. Who are the people teaching entitlement? Government bureaucrats - almost all of them.

Does not seem look like a terribly bad crash. I can’t figure out why people do not wear their seat belts.

The local news broadcast I saw here in Houston said that there were conflicting stories among witnesses as to whether people were stealing the groceries.

Miracle Max: “Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there’s usually only one thing you can do.”

“It seems to be happening everywhere, like a collective loss of any sense of right and wrong.”

This isn’t even new; decades ago people were trampled to death at a rap concert and people stole their pocketbooks. You could see it clearly on the security cameras. I think the underclass that knew it had no role in the twentieth century certainly knows it is even further marginalized in the twenty first, and for decades has been content to simply be comfortable and enjoy themselves (completely without morality).

The minimum wage hike laws seem designed to counter this; they are springing up in the cities that have the most comfortable standard of living for worthless POSes that will never work, and are probably designed to prevent 100% of the population from taking a similar attitude.

It’s my understanding that’s how it was in the Old West. If you came upon a corpse, it wasn’t uncommon for it to be searched for anything that could prove useful: boots, hat, bullets.

Having said that, as Obama and the feds make an effort to destroy the economy to create a compliant and desperate population, these types of stories will probably become more common.

Didn’t this already post on FR yesterday? Oliver Darcy is such a ripoff artist. But it makes Glenn richer, so it must be ok. I don’t think even 5% of TheBlaze is original content, compared to serious sites like Breitbart or TheDC.

Appears to have occurred in an Amish neighborhood. Amish people have utterly no civility, no normalcy, and lack the ability to have a civilization whatsoever.

The Amish should be repatriated back to the forests of Germany where they can hoot and holler and swing from the trees, and wield their rakes and their hoes and scream at anyone who comes near.

The Amish and other civilizations cannot coexist.

Not surprised. In 1997 my father had a massive coronary event while sitting at the kitchen table, paying bills. While he was being loaded into the ambulance and his hysterical wife of 55 years was with him, an EMT stole the checkbook.

Back in 1983 my dad lived next to a bar in Phoenix,AZ. He lived in a crappy little travel trailer. He would walk to the bar and drink and then back to the trailer to sleep it off. One night he died in his sleep. The regular bar flies checked on him one day and found him. They went through his pockets and stole his wallet as he lay dead. These are the same guys my dad would cal his “drinking buddies.” Some ending for a father of four WW2 Vet.

The wife of a guy I used to work with found a corpse out in the boonies. She went to town and reported it. He got mad at her for not checking the pockets for cash.

A nation that turns its back on God will have people stealing groceries from the dead and 12 yr olds killing a “friend” to appease some demonic made up character in the forest.

I think, during the Civil War, boots wore out and there were no replacements, and boys outgrew their boots.

I doubt the dead begrudged their boots to their comrades, although a pocket watch should have been sent home to the family.

I know a fellow biker who crashed his cycle.

People stopped when they saw him in the ditch. And took his bike and left him.

(He lived.)

Seat belts have about a 50% chance to save you, and a 50% chance to kill you, damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

However, it’s still law to wear them.

I am so sorry that is the legacy that your father left you with. But, he was still your father, he gave you life. My guess is that you are a great man/woman who has always been there for their children, if you have them.

My dad was part of "The Greatest Generation" that fought WW2. Hard drinking and hard fighting. I am the youngest of four brothers. Our father abandoned us after our mother died. We were in and out of foster homes and lived with this relative and that relative. I suppose they done what they could at the time. My dad chose the life he lived and I have no resentment towards him. I raised two beautiful daughters who never knew what is was like to be hungry. I have a 16 month old blue eyed,red haired grand daughter who will hear lots of stories about her great grandfather.

Years ago we drove from Kansas to the west coast of Mexico. Went through an area of really bad roads and came upon an overturned truck whose cargo of fresh fruit was strewn everywhere. Lots of people with baskets coming down out of the hills to pick up and carry the fruit away, some of them even had to step over the bodies of three people who appeared to have been ejected from the truck.

Took us a while to get around the scene and we never once saw anyone checking on the truck’s occupants.

“A Houston mother ....was fatally wounded after being involved in a car crash”........

That headline sounded like the woman had been shot first and then in a car crash.

The remainder of the story did not surprise me at all. A nation of animals has emerged.

To this type of mindset, how is taking groceries out of a dead person's car any different from this?

I was racing my motorcycle in a stupid place in a stupid way. I was going so fast I ran right off the road and landed 10 feet away on my back in a ditch.

As I lay there, a guy came by and asked if he could help. I said, yes, please, I'd like to get my (wrecked) bike to the ferry dock.

Guess what happened ? When I showed up at the ferry dock, the fella had brought my bike there, and another friend took it on the ferry to the other side. My bike was waiting for me there.

Never saw that man before, and never saw him again. Most people are not like the scum in this article.

The card in that person’s hand is an EBT card which is the politically correct of saying ‘food stamps’. By brandishing that card, the holder is displaying their specialized classification of one who is entitled to free food that has been paid for by someone else. Thus to such a person, groceries hold no value in the sense of how much labor was required to trade for them. Instead, groceries have become an entitlement. In other words, the people who ‘took’ the groceries out of this car view groceries as something they are entitled to without having to exchange any personal labor for them.
