Katrina and the looters..

it breaks my heart to hear and see all the damage and deaths..but then to see the looters ..it makes me crazy. How can a person be that fucked up to loot a store or a home during such a horrible time in everyone's life in that part of the country? How could they be that screwed up? It's beyond me..i can not figure out how they can rationalize this type of action. People have no food, water, housing or electricity and yet there are individuals that are looting.... i am never ever going to be able to grasp the callousness of people.

And looting Iraq of its oil is...?

Sorry, I'm on the peace warpath. This disaster should never have happened to the extent it did, and the necessary infrastructure C&C resources were over making Dick & Co. rich.

grr...

the instinct of scavanging relates us to animals.

I am sorry but looting tv's is NOT scavaging..its stealing and robbing.

Bruce said...

I'm sorry, col. dr., but WTF does Iraq have to do with looting in the aftermath of Katrina?
And Dusty, you're dead on; it's not scavanging. Why is it that these things bring out the worst in people?

It's that victim mentality. They think the whole !@#$%^& world owes them something so they have no guilt stealing.

It irritates me to learn that firemen and police participated in the looting -- and this only days after Ann Coulter called New Yorkers cowardly.

I saw video on msnbc showing either a police officer or a firefighter looting the walmart..very disgusting..
