    Just saw a video my wife showed of Looters pulling up several nice vehicles to the emergency exit at a mall in Miami and several people running out with trash bags and arms full of shoes from a Foot Locker.

    Watching more videos of looters, one thing is for sure...everybody is getting new kicks for Christmas!

    Not looting groceries or clothing stores, but man if there is a place selling Jordans or Nike they are all over it.

    The timing of this could cost lives and resources needed elsewhere just compounds it. I hope a stiff sentence follows

    It's amazing to think that people would take advantage of the sad weather emergency they're having in Florida. People like that don't care for anything, not even themselves. They think the whole world owes them something for nothing.

    It's funny you didn't see much of this in Texas when Harvey hit.

    It's hard to loot in 10 feet of water.

    There were reports last night of people posing as Duke Energy and TECO repair personnel. They would come to the door of a residence without power and when the home owner would open the door, they would rob them at gun point.

    There are people posing as FEMA representatives and insurance claim adjusters. These guys are stealing identities.
