I have quiet a few friends down in this part of the country and have been trying to get in touch with some of them to no avail. I finally talked to a neighbor that is feeding one of the guys fish and getting his mail. He said a group of about ten of them headed down right after Katrina hit to help. These guys all run together and work together building water tanks all over the US. If we end up in the same proximity because of a job, they get in touch so we can see each other. I just wanted to say something about that part of the country having GOOD people. They are all not stupid, uneducated, looters.

Incidents seem to bring the idiots out into the open though.

I don't see anything wrong with stealing food from the grocery store (when it's impossible to buy food), but I hope as many of those people stealing remote control cars and shit get arrested as possible.

I hope that the cops get arrested and fired from their job for that. It shows real problems with american society when things like this happen (I'm sure we're not the only ones though).

I did laugh my ass off when I saw those cops, you'd think they could atleast change out of their uniforms first!

I wouldn't, unless it was a matter of survival. But then again I have moral integrity.

ditto to mingan. in the middle of a deserted, flooded, powerless city what would be the point in breaking into best buy? any sensible person would have far higher priorities than filling their house with all the shit they could never afford. thats what insurance claims are for -- well after you arent in immediate and perpetual risk of dying.

I find I agree with Surt, I'd go looting not just for the hell of it, but because I could get some fairly good stuff for free *Shrugs*

Yeah, I'd loot. I'd probably hit up the retail stores and take off with the most kickass computer i could find. I seriously fantasized about being there, finding a best buy and making 3 ultra-end PC's out of components, taking the best home theatre equipment and shit and stuffing it all into my car, removing all traces of the store from them, and take off.

You think this attitude toward looting might be the reason some of the people who are above water in the French Quarter refuse to be forced out. They dont have windows, electricity or running water but they want to stay!

I donít mess with other peoples stuff. Their girlfriends, cars, wallets etc. I do on occasion mess with them but only if it is warranted. But if I was starving a super chain like wall-mart could kiss my butt. I would take their water and food. But I donít see me cruising the electronics isle or the pharmacy.

How about the cops sit at the door with instructions written on the wall. "If this is a must have item take it! If not we will shoot your before you can get it put back"

NNY has a good point. I would get me a bottle and a shotgun. Guard what I owned and up the death toll which is now believed to be grossly overrated.

Drive off straight into the 5 foot flood waters? Good plan. Well thought out. Maybe you should loot a canoe first.

Sure I'd loot. I'd be grabbing food and loads of diabetic supplies - I'd grab as much of that as I could.

If it were an option I would have gotten the fuck out so I didn't have to loot anything anyways.

I would loot in a group though, so maybe the other asshole would get shot first.

A good idea would be to loot a Kevlar vest!!! Sams use to have them and definitely in a group. It is hard to see over 5 cases of beer to know where the bullets are coming from!

I thought you had to go through special channels to buy a bullet proof vest. I know when my stepdad ordered his good vest (the kind that's one step up from the military's, with ceramic plates to take a rifle round point blank) he had to jump through a whole bunch of hoops.

I dont know their quality. But I went to Sams one time and that was the first thing on display. You know how they put new stuff right when you walk in. They were expensive too. I wondered who would buy a kevlar vest from Sams????? That has been awhile ago. I bet we would have seen some good stuff on MTV's jackass if you could still get them.

I seem to remember Johnny Knoxville getting shot in one of the episodes anyway, I thought he was wearing one.

Celebrities can probably get those vests a little easier, with all the psychos out there.

Also, what with all of their expendable cash.
That's about when I met nelly, she was the village belle.
I was just a panderer, but I loved that girl like hell.

Then along came a city slicker, all finely dressed and gay.
Before I knew it, the son of a bitch stole my nelly away.

So I'm just resting my bones a while, and then I'll be on my way.

i'd hope that if i was in the situation, i wouldn't loot. it's less that i care about the very likely ruined property of people who might not be back for months, it's that it's a really dumbass waste of energy when food is scarce.

What would be the pint of this if the only way out and back to your home involved over 10 feet of water? I mean do you really hink your going to find the time to dissasemble it and put it in ziplock baggies? And if so I dont think I trust Ziplock baggies to do that sort of thing. Oh well if it gets fucked at least you didnt loose any money.

I wouldn't, unless it was a matter of survival. But then again I have moral integrity.


If that were true, you wouldn't sit there and lie to us like that.

Did you guys see the last real time with Bill Mahr? Where they have the picture of a black guy wading through the water with a bag full of food and a case of sodas and the caption uses the words "after looting a convinient store" and then they have a picture with two white people in the exact same position and the caption says "after finding some food."

That was pretty crazy. I don't like to pull the race card but there has been some pretty blatant discrimination here, I think.

First, I don't understand how your little story is any sort of argument against my case.

If you do wish to know however, I am white. That means I would be finding big screen televisions and stereo equipment.
