Looters after disasters are vultures, scavengers

Along with others, I’m watching the news regarding the hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. I feel so angry and helpless watching the losers come out of the woodwork, looting and taking advantage during these catastrophic times. They look like vultures on a scavenger hunt.

I look at the good folks who have stepped up and helped others by putting themselves in danger. Why don’t you losers step up like decent human beings and help them instead of helping yourselves to things that don’t belong to you.

Hope you enjoy watching your cowardly acts on TV. Just curious, have you figured out how to watch TV and use other stolen goods without the amazing invention we call electricity? Fine example you’ll set for the next generation. Another double duh!
