Hurricane Sandy brought out the worst yesterday in some sleazy New Yorkers, who looted stores and homes across the city.
Some posed as Con Ed workers to dupe their victims.
Police arrested more than a dozen looters in the Rockaways and Coney Island, which had been evacuated, and stood guard outside ravaged stores at the South Street Seaport. “This morning when they told us the water receded, I walked back to the house to feed [my pets],” said Eric Martine, 33, a cabby who lives in Brooklyn’s Gerritsen Beach. “Guys were looting, pretending they were Con Ed and holding people up. It was sick.” Residents said police warned them to beware of crooks pretending to be utility workers...

A disaster always brings out the worst of human nature. People begin looting and stealing!
This is what happens when societal norms rapidly break down.
The shot gun remedy should have been very evident. The first load of No. 8 bird shot across the legs with a second of buck shot in case the first was not pursuasive enough.
The Rats surface.
Why wasn’t President on the ground there during the hurricane? BECAUSE HE DOESN’T LIKE NEW YORKERS!!! HE WANTED THEM TO DIE!!!!
Not so here in Japan after a natural disaster 100x that of Hurricane Sandy, just 19 months ago here: 19,000 killed, 500+ of them children, 230,000 vehicles destroyed, 45,000 building destroyed and $300Billion in damages. Hardly a loaf a bread touched, nor a box of cup ramen noodles.
These people (look who I am calling people) should be shot on the spot period!
My, my....I guess the TV networks have more fun standing in the water and reporting old news than telling storm victims that marauders are out stealing from the victims. Disgusting.
In Houston after Hurricane Ike, looters were told they would be shot on sight by order of Gov. Perry. There was no looting.
The Obama-butt kissing media in Florida isn’t reporting any of this...they are ONLY reporting how WONDERFUL Obama is doing.
A lttle 2nd amendment, castle doctrine, throw in some stand your ground laws and this problem goes away pretty quickly.
True, that. Watch for this story to be covered up. CNN, BSNBC, etc. won’t be out there filming this crazyness. Not six days before election day for you know now. It might take courageous citizen reporters risking their lives to get this on tape and to the alternative media.
Get a load of this: one of the Miami TV stations is reporting that “Bloomberg and Obama AGREED that a visit to the city by BO wasn’t optimal....
Of course, the REALITY is that Bloomberg told Obama to stay away.
Well, when you disarm the citizens you can kind of expect this kind of BS.
Remember the Korean merchants during the R King Olympics?
After pleas for help were either ignored or denied, they took matters in their own hands.
Don’t think they really shot (killed) all that many BUT once they armed themselves etc the ‘revelers’ found other UNARMED targets.
When the animals leave the confines of their own neighborhoods is when the ‘bloodbaths’ will start, but when they get that stupid, the rest of the sheeples will be ‘dumbed’ down enough to do nothing.
There are no shortage of guns in that area. A lot of cops call that area home.
Why aren’t armed citizens blowing away the looters?
Oh, it’s liberal New York. Never mind.
Hey, you stealing the lamp. Don’t forget the shade. Want a beer to drink on the drive home?
Now I wonder what political persuasion all the rioters endorse...
