As New York City spent a second night plunged in darkness shameless criminals got to work looting abandoned stores and homes across the metropolis. At least 13 suspected thieves have been arrested since Hurricane Sandy struck the city around 6.30pm on Monday evening. Thousands of police and National Guard troops are patrolling the city and keeping guard in the worst-hit areas in a bid to deter any opportunistic crooks. As hundreds of thousands of the city's residents were left without power, some wily criminals posed as Con Edison energy workers to dupe their victims, reported the New York Post

(shoot on sight)
Another reason why some refuse to leave until the last moment, if at all!
Go to Drudge and read ‘Looters display stolen articles on Twitter’.
Absolutely amazing. Surreal- that this trash is posting this and getting away with it.
There's the problem in one short sentence. If the sentence had read at least 13 suspected looters have been shot so far the problem would be a lot less serious.
Can you Tweet from an Obamaphone?
I’m a firm believer in shooting looters on sight.
When I was hit by a hurricane, and was the only person left in the neighborhood as everyone else had evacuated, I was certainly packing. And I was totally prepared to shoot to kill.
I wanna be your neighbor.
We can take turns.
Do not be surprised if these twitters will be traced and reported by the much more law abiding twitters. Their pictures are simply an outright give away.
Yes! They are posting pics of loot and what they plan on doing tonight.
Boasting of getting weapons, plans to loot, rape white women. See Drudge article, ‘Shamless looters post pics.’
Rt hand side
They’re not looters dammit! They are dedicated Obama voting redistributing warriors.
"You know, some people are stealing and they're making a big deal out of it. Oh, they're stealing 20 pair of jeans or they're stealing television sets. Who cares? They're not going to go too far with it. Maybe those people are so poor, some of the people who do that they're so poor they've never touched anything in their lives. Let them touch those things for once." Celine Dion following Katrina.
"Let them touch those things for once."
We need to hit our knees and pray for this country and that “leaders” step forward. The old media will die shortly after this election if their king loses. The new media is rising fast so true leaders no longer need to fear the media bubble that all of us loathe. They willingly assist in putting people in jail for made up crimes so long as they are real Americans. All the while protecting the socialist criminals in government and these cretin scum who freely post their crimes on the internet.
1st and second ammendment. God save our country.
Shoot them on-sight. No arrests; shoot them.
Here's a link to that article.
Duh, any of these folks also members of the OWS?
Maybe the Occupy Wall Street counterculture has morphed into Loot Any Street?
Depending upon the neighborhood "looting" back then was not looting.. it was part of the common practice of those days, before credit cards were so common, called lay-away.
Thus what might be looting (see photo) in New York City would part of retail sales in Los Angeles. The customers were there to retrieve their goods paid for by outrageous high prices charged to the racist white retailers in the neighborhood.
I did not make that up.. some MSM employees back then actually reported lootings as such.
Hey looters, go to the 200 block of South Beach Rd., Jupiter Island, Fl. to touch some of Celine’s TVs and jeans.
Some LEO, like Huggy Bear, knows who these disgusting thugs are.
it should say
"Thus what might be looting (see photo) in New York City would be considered part of retail sales in Los Angeles. The customers were there to retrieve their goods paid for by outrageous high prices charged by the racist white retailers in the neighborhood."
Those scum bags probably think they are entitled to loot as a form of reparations. They are not immoral people, they are amoral.
“Shoot them on-sight. No arrests; shoot them.”
I hope no police officers shoot them or the FR police haters will be out in force calling them thugs who should be charged.
They could just illegally download some of her songs.
This should be between us (homeowners/business owners) and the looters; the police should stay out of it. SSS.
Should have read " ...at least 13 suspected looters have been shot so far and their heads prominently displayed on pikes."
“police should stay out of it. SSS.”
So an 80 year old woman like me who knows nothing about guns should just say “Help yourself” rather than calling the police?

Then see photos here:
Top Mack loots Americans, why shouldn’t the rest of his tribe?
An well-armed neighbor is her best friend.
Back in the 1880s, just after the Johnstown Flood, looters were shot on sight. If captured, they were immediately shot.
It was standard policy to shoot looters everywhere at that time before lib lawyers and judges got into the act.
This is what we can expect at the beginning of a collapse of our economic system or any other event when there isn't enough law enforcement to control this criminal element. If power is out, the darkness is also theirs.
They will own the streets until they die from thirst or hunger or being killed from their own kind or our kind.
Someone living in lower Manhattan said today everyone goes about their business in the day time and when darkness gets there, everyone goes inside their houses. Normal people do not own their night right now. If they ran out of supplies, what would they do?
Maybe what is happening will add more preppers to the population.
They think they’re getting a head start on b0nehead’s redistribution. Stinkin’ animals.
As much as looting may tick us off, property and things are not worth a human life, nor are they worth opening up the possibilities to idiots to simply shoot on sight any "trespassers". I want bad things for the looters too, but I think it's a bad idea to open up that little drawer of Pandora's Box.
WE pay for those phones with a surcharge added to our cell phone bills... Seems only fair to take the free phones away from people convicted of a crime...

Years ago, I knew some missionaries to Haiti under the rule of Papa Doc. One day they were walking through a market place and someone stole something and took off running. Almost immediately the Ton-Ton-Macutes were on him and beat the man half to death.
The missionaries were horrified at what they saw when a merchant took them aside and told them that this had to be. If they let one get away with it, everyone would do it and they would have everything stolen from them and there could be no market at all.
I traced all their identities back to some white liberal high school aged kids from New Jersey who were probably just being bone headed. One of the kids (who seemed to be an instigator) had actually impersonated a gangster / looter before during the london riots. I don’t know yet if there is an OWS angle here or just some wannabe Anonymous type.
“We hang horse thieves, not in order that men shall be hanged, but in order that horses shall not be stolen.”

GREAT Re-Search! WOW!
The FReeper Media is alive and well with you on the job! Thanks!
No white kids in these photos; check ‘em out:
Then shoot shovel and shut up!
