      1. Hmmm…let’s see, price gouging, while deplorable, only works if people willingly pay the price being asked. And no, I’m NOT down with price gouging but, under Common Law, I don’t see it as a crime. Unless I’m now going to be told that I have to freely give what I have for some else’s benefit. That sounds more like socialism to me.

        Looting on the other hand, is flat out STEALING! and that IS a crime.

        1. LMAO but Charlie, stealing either way is a crime and in Texas, it is illegal to price gouge according to the attorney general. Brother, theft is theft no matter how you look at it especially in a situation like this. They all need to be jailed

          1. Ad where in the Constitution does it say and when did all the BoR loving people decide that it’s a-ok for govt to interfere in commerce?

            Let me ask you a simple question…I own a home. i want to sell it, you are interested in buying it. I want $500,000 you say it’s only worth 100,000. I’m not willing to accept less than 500K so, since I want 5 times what someone else says it’s worth, I am now guilty of “price-gouging” and I should be jailed?

            If that’s the Common Law and the BoR then how is that different from what we currently have?

            Whom did the person, who *allegedly* wanted $99 for a case of water, steal from? Unless he was one of the looters and stole case of water, he hasn’t committed theft.

            And ANYONE who lives in a hurricane zone, or a blizzard zone, or any place else prone natural disasters, who doesn’t have 5-10 cases of water stuck away in a closet or corner, deserves to pay 100 dollars for a case of water. It’s not like it goes bad.

          2. And don’t misunderstand what I’m saying…charging exorbitant prices just because you can take advantage of a bad situation is pretty damned low down.
            However that something that should be left to Karma or one’s maker.

            What goes around DOES come around.

  1. Funny how the cop is more upset at the looters as opposed to the price gouchers. They’re all criminals and should all be treated the same. …JAIL THEM ALL.

    1. And now we know why trump calls it fake news. …because they’re always trying to hype up their lies. In this instance, people were without food and other provisions. Plus there is the double standards : when black people take from stores in instances like this, they are called looters, yet when whites do it, it’s called survival instinct. They play us against each other and it’s the hardcore, racist who always crawl from under their rocks to denigrate blacks for doing the same thing whites do. But hey, I’m not supposed to point that out or speak on it cause it’s only my opinion and not considered the truth.
