Prepare For A Wave Of Looting After Hurricane Sandy
October 29, 2012
It's all anecdotal at this point, but if crime reports following hurricanes Katrina and Irene are any indication, the East Coast is in for a crime wave, post-Sandy.
No reports of looting or Hurricane Sandy-related crimes have been reported yet but that doesn't mean we won't see some soon.
Following Hurricane Katrina, the most devastating hurricane in modern memory, New Orleans was besieged with reports of looting, rape, and murder, causing delayed troop deployments, delayed medical evacuations, and police department mutiny, The New York Times reported in 2005.
From the Times:
"Beyond doubt, the sense of menace had been ignited by genuine disorder and violence. Looting varied from basic thievery to foraging for the necessities of life. Police officers said that at least one person fired for nights on end at a police station on the edge of the French Quarter. The manager of a hotel on Bourbon Street said he saw people running through the streets with guns.
At least one person was killed by a gunshot at the convention center, and a second at the Superdome. A police officer was shot in the Algiers neighborhood, across the river from downtown, during a confrontation with a looter."
Same can be said for Hurricane Irene, albeit on a less dramatic scale.
Looting of evacuated homes was so widespread TruTV compiled all the security images into one crime-filled slideshow.
In New York City alone, about 30 arrests were reported for crimes that happened as the hurricane pummeled the city, The New York Times reported last year.

Media footage of the looters probably won’t help Obama.
Then you can bet the Media won’t show any footage.
The MSM will only report on the Tea Party looters. (ahem)
The spectre of that would absolutely cinch the election for Romney.
They’ll probably find a guy with red hair and blue eyes and lead the 6 o’clock news with film of him carrying a TV.
Where be Looter Dude??
Looter Guy in a NY Yankees cap and shirt would be perfect!
I be lootin' and shootin' Lootin' my hood! I be drinkin' dat Colt .45 lootin. I be on Oxy now so I be lootin dat drug down the block! Good lootin' to you bro!
... if you live in a deep blue cesspool Democrat city...
Here is what we will see from the lame-stream media. We will see how quickly things are returning to normal. All because of the Obama Administration grabbing the bull by the horns and getting things done. We will hear all good reports on aid, housing, military support, rescue operations, equipment, personnel, food, medical supplies, etc. It will be reported as a “God Send” that someone like Obama was in charge when this tragedy occurred. They will go on to tell us how changing “teams” during this crisis would be a tragic mistake.
Prepare For A Second Wave Of Looting After Obama Loses Election
And now Obama will be seen as useless in the aftermath of this disaster. Tens of millions of pissed-off voters will either not go to the polls or will vote for Romney. The final nail in his campaign’s coffin.
The only occasion when Obama’s people get to treat themselves to Heineken.
If there are any looters roaming around - they will be described as “people looking for work”.
If all the Federal agencies remain closed: Washington DC’s looters will be ‘working’ from home. Tax-payers don’t get a break.
Washington Politicians loot American tax payers 24/7 365 days a year.
Shirley, you jest!!!
Stupidity on parade. What could Bounty make, 8 knots? Criminal.
Ball ammunition; lock and load!!
There are already many cases of people ignoring mandatory evacuation orders in NYC/NJ; people know that law enforcement isn’t allowed to enforce laws when minorities are involved, so they don’t want to leave their homes and possessions.
That's 30 people out of 8.2 million -- .00036 percent of the population -- and 29 of the 30 people would have been arrested for something regardless of Hurricane Irene.
The real problem is the triple whammy that is about to hit Detroit: Tigers lose the World Series; the annual "Arson Fest" on the night before Holloween; and power outages from Hurricane Sandy.
Love the golf club!
Ah..........we can only hope!
LOOTING - The perfect supplement to Food Stamps and Welfare. Don’t be the last one in the ‘hood to score a big screen TV or electronic games. Fo’ shizzle, this is the prime “redistribute the wealth” time. Be game or be shamed.
Where be Looter Dude??
Are you looking for this guy?
I remember when FR did not want to be identified as racist in any way. I thought it was a site dedicated to conservative principles. Now some posts look like they could have been copied from Stormfront.com.
They're already starting to pop up. There was a report earlier of a guy that was nailed by the cops carrying a flat screen TV through an evacuated neighborhood near the Jersey shore.
“I remember when FR did not want to be identified as racist in any way. I thought it was a site dedicated to conservative principles. Now some posts look like they could have been copied from Stormfront.com.”
I can’t dispute what you wrote above.
But the changes we see here reflect changes in the real world outside — to wit, changing “racial realities” in America that can no longer be denied or swept under the rug.
I expect things to get worse before they get better....
