Incorrect.

Looting is all about opportunity. Nothing more. Those people broke into the store and took stuff out of the store because they could.

Tell that to the looters. Anarchy would lead banditry, vigilantism, and worse.

Hard to tell the looters that when they're dead from lead poisoning.

loved the reporter. I love it when someone calls these thugs out on their actions. These looters are the same people who think they're entitled to steal a purse or daypack or wallet from commuters everyday downtown in my city. We see it often from the usual suspect. We need to stop making excuses for lazy self-entitled people like this, but that's another thread.

Well, I only hope that the owners of that Family Dollar store closes down that business and leave that area for good.

Sorry, if the locals don't care about being decent humans, then screw them... My only concerns would be for the elderly that still live there who now will have to suffer because a group of losers desired to break the law.

As for the people that are in there teens, twenties amend thirties, I hope the enjoy their walk to a better part of town... Since they're on welfare, free time shouldn't be a problem.

You can't let these losers loot cuz it we spred to other areas and the. Turn into a riot... The police have to stop it before it becomes a bigger problem.

True dat. Had it been CNN, the interview would have started with the reporter asking, Tell me Sir, what long series of cruel, inhumane, racist, misogynistic, soul-killing injustices brought you to finally, righteously seek justice?

No you don’t.

If the looters were white people, this would be a different thread.

He posted this because the looters were black people.

I do agree we should stop making excuses for people who steal.

Find a report/news story/video where white people are looting. It's not about race, looting by anyone is a crime, but the vast majority of looting is done by black people.

WRONG!!! This is why the morals of people in this country have gone down the tube. Ransacking and stealing from a store has to do with "people's needs being met?????" Do you realize how twisted and evil you sound?

What about the needs of whoever owned the store????? What about knowingly breaking the law and stealing? It's no wonder people are committing crimes like this in this country when people are giving them subliminal messages that it's ok because it's about "peoples [sic] needs being met."
