What are they asking them? “Are you a looter?” No? Ok go on then. FUCKING IDIOTS QUIT HARASSING PEOPLE AND RUN AWAY FROM THE FIRE.

You mean an area of the country known for being a haven for paranoid anti-social militia members and sympathizers would suddenly turn on their fellow citizens during a crisis? Well color me shocked Pikachu. Wonder how many of these people stoping others at gunpoint constantly spend most of their time complaining about *their* rights being violated.

These people want a police state so bad they DIY’d one.

Seriously starting to believe that certain people in this country just want any excuse to kill another person. Edit: This has always been a concern of mine, but I held onto those childhood fantasies of most people just being genuinely good humans until this year.
