And the police said management (Family Dollar Store) told them not to do anything.................they deserve what they get with an attitude like that and it only encourages more looting.

    They have all kinds of assistance like medical/food/water/shelter available free to them....me thunks they are just looting to get free stuff they don't need to survive because they think they are owed it and can get away with it.........................dregs of humanity.

    The dregs are growing in numbers & it is because the dregs in suits are helping with that. Years ago it was a hard but simple life . Don't work ....don't eat. Steal & get dead. You can't fix people by giving  them something for nothing.

    Looters are really going downhill when you target the Dollar Store🙄

    The real problem is the un-necessary deversion of LEOs to deal with petty theft during a community crisis. Sentence those caught to mandatory community service assisting the hard labor of clean up.

    Great idea, but by the time they get to court cleanup will be all but finished.

    I would like to think that the stores management told police to not do anything now because they are insured and police were needed elsewhere to protect and save lives.

    That looting going on and the cops standing around playing 'pocket pool' is the reason a lot of folks don't evacuate in a situation like this. They KNOW the cops won't do anything and they feel they need to stay to protect what they have from thieves.

    Simple solution to it since the cops are 'busy doing something else' is to declare all looters targets of opportunity and load them down with all the lead they can tote away. Won't ever stop the looting, but it would sure stop repeat offenders.

    I saw a meme with pictures.  In all of that chaos and looting not a single pair of work boots was stolen.  I think if you shoot a few it would stop them.  Remember the Korean business owners during the L.A. riots?  Of course I don't know if I would defend a Dollar General or Family Dollar for $7.00 hour.
