Colorado Springs Residents Return Home to Destruction, Looters (24 homes looted)

Colorado Springs residents, many of whom have been away from their homes for several days, were allowed to return to what remained of their houses on Sunday.

The wildfires, which are being called the most destructive of its kind in Colorado history, forced thousands of people to evacuate the city as it blazed a 17,659 acre trail across the state. At last count, 346 homes and communities were laid to waste as a result.

Sadly, sifting through the rubble might be the least of their concerns at the moment. Bears and other wildlife have been spotted in these deserted neighborhoods searching for food.

Unfortunately, opportunistic burglars have been seen in the area as well; two houses were recently looted, bringing the total number to 24.

In order to keep these bandits off the streets and out of people’s homes, the National Guard has been brought in to police the wreckage.

Although some people were allowed to remain in their homes — a large number of which are still without power — the vast majority of folks were only permitted to view their property in order to survey the damage. Once visiting hours were over, they were asked to leave the premises.

I dont know what kind of history you have tied with the poster but I live here and he / she is correct to say that this time they did a kick ass job so yeah they got my props this time . I saw it .

I’m sure there are 100 diffenert ways to call a thief a thief but my world is simple . You jacked my stuff , my kin , my woman , my dog ... shame on ya . Yes it seems odd to say when the homes were stolen from the cops did well but this time they did considering the size and scope of the project at hand .

I dont know how this white trash got in behind the lines . It would be easy to do in the woods , sparse roads , yet I know if I had larceny in my heart it would be a done deal . 5th Grp . taught me how to live .

I assure you the last people in my heart are the FedGov and there useful idiots and even now we have the magic negro here and his bulldyke from Arizona buying votes . I’m with you on that but the locals here and the civil servants did the right thing .
