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...

These people (look who I am calling people) should be shot on the spot period!

Sanity left the country a long time ago.

You are right, these are not merely looters, these folks can actually be defined as terrorists in a manner since they are using means and ways far beyond the normal definition of looting.

I can just imagine vigilantes having firefights with armed faked firemen or utility workers, surely primetime cinema drama even thinking of the situation.

Talk about nightmares.

Here in Louisiana, the governor issued a soot to kill order after Katrina.

"But I have a feeling that if Obama tries to run this machine he’s going to find a lot of cogs that are too bent out of shape to go along with it."

No need to suspend the constitution or impose martial law. Fabian he is. "Early voting" was permitted, and nobody said a word. So now, Obama will simply issue an executive order permitting "late voting," and his coupe d'etat will be complete.

You know how to keep looters out of your store?

Leave one hanging at the front door.

“We will not tolerate these scumbags looting. We will arrest them on sight,” said a police source.

“Arrest them on site....” I thouyght the rule was “...Looters will be shot on site ...”

Sanity left the country a long time ago.

Sanity left the country northeast a long time ago - in the late 1800s near as I can tell, and the last vestiges left in 1920.

There are no shortage of guns in that area. A lot of cops call that area home.

Oh, the NY "some are more equal than others" crowd...

I don’t think extending the voting would help him. There are records regarding Benghazi that will need to be coming out, and he can’t suppress that story for long.

The looters have likely been emboldened over the past 3.5 years to feel entitled to free stuff from an evil profiteering store merchant. Imagine what 4 more years will do to American society, what’s left of it.

Most campaign signs are stolen at night, so here is an easy remedy to the problem.

Put a couple signs up facing the street. Liberally smear some roofing tar ( or dog crap if handy ) on the back of the sign near the top.

When they run up and grab the sign it will get all over their hands, which they will immediately rub on their pants, not knowing what it was.

One treatment cures most sign thieves for life, especially when they have to get back in their car covered with tar or dog crap!

You are correct. “Extending” the voting won’t help him. Deferring the final vote tally will. DNC lawyers are already circling in the skies over federal court buildings across the U.S. Remember 2000. Given the prolonged spittle flinging shrieks that will issue forth over “late voting,” Benghazi will be long forgotten. Sadly, it’s already been removed from further reporting by a mere Cat. 1 weather event.

Farmers and orchard owners used to use rock salt. I can attest that it is a very painful and effective deterent.

Yeah, take away anything worth stealing from the law abiding citizens. ;-)

If you haven’t seen this yet, here you go.

Holder’s People reacting to the storm aftermath.

Pay close attention to the looters dressed as electric company workers. Anytime there is a major storm event, you’ll see convoys of linemen from other states coming in like gypsies. Easy cover for gangbangers to infiltrate the storm zones.

Makes me feel uncomfortable to even having to consider who is legitimate and who is fake.
No wonder they want to take away the guns, so the looters masquerading as utility repairmen can get the “fair share” without any direct threats of injury.

The Washington Post had an editorial about Benghazi. Reported everything wrong but did say that there were questions that deserved answers. Benghazi is not gone. Not by a long shot.

Most importantly, not gone in the minds of our military people, who all know the excuses made are garbage and that their leadership at every level threw them under the bus. Those guys know what it means if nobody’s got their back. That commitment to each other is all they’ve got when the chips are down. Whoever takes that away destroys the US military by “radical transformation”.

If the military rank-and-file had any questions about Obama being an enemy combatant, those doubts should be wiped out by now.
