Now there’s been some looting in Japan — UPDATE

with 6 comments

Folks, I knew that the lack of looting in Japan couldn’t go on forever . . . with so many people (over 400,000) lacking homes, 1.3 million with no water, hundreds of thousands without power . . . well, it was only a matter of time.

Ed Schultz reported tonight during his TV show at MSNBC that while there hasn’t been a lot of looting, there has actually been some.  He showed some video tape that hasn’t yet been posted as far as I can tell . . . I’m not the world’s most tech-savvy person, so if someone else has found it, please give me a shout-out and I’ll add it to this post . . . that definitely shows some Japanese people looting a store in a coastal area.

Granted, it’s been very, very little looting by the standards of Chile or, more graphically, Hurricane Katrina in the USA.  But there now has been some.
