Pentagon is sending 30,000 more National Guard to Texas and yes, they should be shooting those looters instead of putting them in jail. The good news is looting may give them a life sentence per State Law.

Looting food under extreme circumstances I get...but these people are looting electronics, cell phones, etc. Stuff that has nothing to do with survival.

FYI
Pentagon offerrrd 30K active duty military
Abbott mobilized all 12K TX NG but cant get in to be effectivr and dont have means ( like small bosts) to get in flooded areas

There can be martial law imposed and looters shot in the act

You make lot of assumptions about who those looters are
Shows bias on your part since I have read nothing to imply they are not from Houston
Houston had crime before Harvey, before Katrina
Didnt need imported "bad guys"...

But I also read on FB page re Harvey disaster info webpage some Gulf Coast people started that someone was posting for people to help him scavenge damaged areas for stuff
He was reported many times
Have no way of knowing if same person involved in Houston crimes
