Actually, they should shoot the looters.


In a different setting, we would have protests for cops shooting someone instead of trying to apprehend them for stealing said iPad. Killed for stealing something worth $100.

national guard has been called out and will shoot looters.

I doubt it. As a past member of the armed forces, I doubt that I could pull the trigger to murder someone for stealing a tv. I neither think I would be in the minority nor do I think those asked to issue such orders would feel much different than I.

Would you murder someone for stealing an iPad if you were a member of the NG? If not, then perhaps you should identify why you may think less of those that serve.
