Looters Prey On Sandy's Hardest Hit

The New York Daily News caught up with an alleged looter on Tuesday, who defended his actions, saying, "Look, they've been looting our wallets for too long,"as he took a TV from a Rent-A-Center in Coney Island. "It's about time we start taking this sh—back," he added.

Witnesses of looting near Coney Island told The Wall Street Journal that it was occurring in plain sight, and that police officers did little to stop it.

"When I came out at about 8:30 a.m. this morning, there were people coming out of all these stores, guys carrying Hefty bags," Roger McKinon, 40 years old, who lives in Coney Island told the Wall Street Journal. "The crazy thing was, there were cops around but all they were saying is get out of here, go home."

This is the warm-up for next week’s Riots and Looting.

So. . . .stock up on ammo now, it’ll be what the military calls a “target-rich environment”. . .

I predicted before the water showed up, that indeed, the cops and NG, would provide cover for the looters, and pretty much stand there, and protect, the looters...

Worse yet, should they decide to beat to death, and loot, that isn’t going to change a thing...

Anyone have an idea how bad the looting is? Doesn’t seem to be like Katrina, right?

Coming soon. All across America. If you can't defend it, you don't own it.

From the article: “Another young woman was arrested in Coney Island for criminal possession of a firearm, when “the safe she was caring from a store was found to contain a firearm,” according to Browne.

The looters and other assorted, sordid, Urban Ferals can loot because the cops won’t shoot a looter - they be special folks, ‘Holder’s People’.

Those who disarm themselves, deserve what happens to them.

If anyone had looted a large pop, then they would have been in trouble!

Shoot to kill.
There should be NO legal ramifications for shooting scum like this.

Looters should be, as the saying goes, “shot on sight”.

Sure. The underclass rising up and doing a little redistribution of wealth on their own, and the politicians giving them their blessings.

“Sure. The underclass rising up and doing a little redistribution of wealth on their own, and the politicians giving them their blessings.”

Looters are just cutting out the government middle man in the redistribution process. Who says the underclass has no initiative?

Looters Prey On Sandy's Hardest Hit

Too bad Bloomberg and the other dictators in New Yawk have nullified the 2nd Amendment. Down South we have a saying - "You Loot, We Shoot"

When is Bloomberg leaving? I realize who ever takes his place won’t be any better but I can’t stand his demeanor.

Some of the looters, in their hoodies, look like they could be Obama’s son.

What's funny is the ow IQs of the looters.

What are you going to do with a water logged HDTV?

There's no power to turn it on, and when you do, it will probably short out.

Does anyone remember the Rodney King riots? Some guy was seen looting 2 beanbag chairs.

At least in New Orleans, looters had "priorities", like beer.

That’s what happens when the Second Amendment ends at the Hudson.

When Alabama was hit by the tornadoes 2 years ago, I can remember driving through areas that had signs up that looters will be shot, no questions asked. There was one case where a looter went into a gas station to steal and the owner shot and killed him. The owner was not prosecuted. There were not many problems with it, because it is common knowledge that it is not tolerated.

“and that police officers did little to stop it.”

These are the same Rambos that some Freepers think will be going door to door and demanding people surrender their weapons. It’s more likely we’ll be going to their armories and taking their weapons.

There must have been witnesses and the owner was an honest man. The way things seem to in NY I wouldn't be surprised if SSS goes into effect.

After this is over I’m predicting a huge surge in gun sales.
