Comment: According to the leftist media looters don’t exist and never loot after an earthquake.
A security guard at the South Street Seaport observed approximately one dozen looters early this morning at the Brookstone on Fulton Street. Security guard Maurice Alinton tells us that when the flood water began receding around 3:45 a.m., he started making his rounds around the desolate shopping area, parts of which were still submerged. At that time, according to Alinton, the water was waist deep inside the Brookstone, and looters inside the store were busy wading through it, grabbing headphones and other high-end gadgets.
There are also unconfirmed reports of looting in Queens, specifically in the Rockaways, and State Senator Malcolm Smith told NY1 he has received reports of looting in Queens. He also told NY1, “There is no more Rockaways on the water. It’s just an unbelievable amount of devastation.”
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Nine people have been arrested for allegedly stealing from businesses near the Rockaways in Queens during and after Superstorm Sandy.
Rescuers in Philadelphia pulled a man from the wreckage of a collapsed building on Monday – and then promptly arrested him for looting.
The abandoned three-storey building in the north of the city had been reduced to rubble after Superstorm Sandy battered the east coast of the United States.
Firefighters working to make the building safe didn’t think anyone was inside, until they heard someone crawling out of the rubble.
After helping him to safety, police officers arrested him for disorderly conduct on the suspicion that he had crawled in to the building, located on Cumberland Street, looking for things to loot.
