    The local press is reporting flooded homes being looted by scumbags, as if these poor people don't have enough to cope with already, words fail me.

    Shoot the bastards.
    But then again they might come from broken homes.
    So even if they catch them they wont even get charged just a caution.

    Agree with all preceding posts, but particularly Mel's solution.
    Scumbags indeed.

    shoot them, no court fees, and they will float away so no burial costs.
    and this is not in jest, so no smiley from me .

    Who on earth are these people, well sadly they represent a strata of society that we do not wish to identify with. Do we really need the army to police empty homes?
    I was in Sri Lanka after the tsunami and discovered that even the homes of the poorest people were ransacked while the owners searched for their loved ones.

    Seconded. Where are these people recruited and who gives them the parameters they work to? Sadly I'm sure someone will be along to attempt to justify this ridiculous action. Britain 21st century, at a time when the country is displaying it's best traits corporate stupidity makes me weep.

    Whoever did that is pure scum, and should be sacked on the spot.

    they looted the corpses at Lockerbie , some people i guess are driven by forces that most of us do not understand ,when you are hungry and have little or nothing to loose , social responsibility does not exist . But as for the parking warden !!!! , is walking the plank now illegal ?

    I'm not so sure hunger comes into it. Most theft is driven by drug use. And just a low-life mentality of " I come first, what I want, I have"

    I was reading this morning that many motorcycle clubs are patrolling the areas at night, with the agreement of police, to prevent this happening.

    It doesn't help that insurance companies are stating that unless they see the damaged/ruined goods they won't pay out , so all white/electrical goods being dumped outside are at risk due to scrap value .

    Theas incidents are bad enough with out thieving scum looting the property's.
    When we had the floods two years ago there was a certain section of the community steeling from homes that had ben flooded.
    Theas people have no conscience at any time they will steel anything that isn't chained down from your garden.
    they are the scourge of the earth and should be disposed of like the vermin they are

    I heard the story about looters in Hebden on Monday and jumped in the car to sit outside my store.
    On approach the town was in black out with no electricity, very eerie indeed. I turned into the square where my shop is to be greeted by street lighting and the Christmas tree lights on, most bizarre sight in a week of bizarre sights. I checked my electricity and it was still off so sat down for a long night.
    Within minutes a guy walked past the shop, stopped and shone a touch through the window then went to the next window and did the same. By this time I am heading across the Square toward him wondering what the hell I am going to do next.
    Comically it turned out to be the guy who lives in the flat above the shop checking on what damage had been done!!
    We had a walk round the town together using his touch, really the difference between street lighting (something we all take for granted) and no lighting whatsoever is incredible. He even offered to power our store through dangling an extension lead from his window, and re-assured me that any noise from below would be reported to the police.
    I went home totally re-assured.
    Later a group of bikers from Bradford offered to patrol the town through the night to keep everything safe, which they did. Yes it was terrible that someone thought they were entitled to thieve, but the good people in this community far outweighs them.

    Until I see proof of homes being broken into and possessions being stolen, then to me it resembles a gassing thread..
