    Just to clarify though not applicable to the looting scenarios above.

    Disaster victims who are out of food and who then take that food such as canned, jarred, pouched, goods etc. are not looters because once such items like canned goods and other food items come in contact with contaminated flood waters - those goods cannot ever be restocked onto store shelves and resold to consumers.

    15 looters in a city of 8.6 million...ain't nothin' to worry about.

    now, if power stays out for another week, and stores have no food for another week, then we got a problem.

    Hopefully the police will show little mercy to those scum perpetrating such attrocities.

    Anyone who is hungry during times of disaster can be given a pass when they take food. Especially, as you point out, the food will be thrown away anyway.

    I consider looting to be stealing items not needed for survival. Canned goods, yes...flat screen TV's...no.

    I'm sure we can all argue semantics and the letter of the law but we all know stealing tv's, cell phones, clothes etc. is looting.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    I agree with Jeanlouise. You don't need a flat screen to survive.

    Yeah, but I bet she didn't rush the broken door at Best Buy and run out with it on her back.

    You only need food, water and shelter technically.

    nothing wrong with stealing food during a crisis, if you are hungry.

    hell, folks should give it away.

    There will be plenty of charities plus the feds providing meals to those in need. The Red Cross and Salvation Army always step up. Despite all of the political rhetoric no one goes hungry in this country after a natural disaster. That's part of what makes us a great country - helping those who need help.

    I may even add blankets & clothes in the category of "needs" in a SHTF situation. But, making off with arm fulls of "designer" brand clothes is most likely looting.

    Well, this is definatly a SHTF event, and the looting started when the lights went out..... if not before. These punks have, and will continue, to take advantage of the situation for their own gain. We're not going to hear most of the stories in the news. Shoot, the atrocities that occured during Katrina haven't really been talked about. From what I gather though the Northeast is handling this better than N.O. handled Katrina....... maybe we actually learned a few things???
