Nothing worse than a COMMON LOOTER during disaster times. Can you imagine what they would have done in his country "if" they caught him pulling this nonsense? I'm happy that the Patch published this picture and the story. Shameful that these "low life's" walk amongst us.

Really? This guy is going to walk around the corner and break into a neighbors' car before 9PM during a storm when he knows everyone is home? Either there is alot more to this story....or he is just the dumbest jerk on the planet. Which is it?
