It is not bad enough that those people have had their houses destroyed. Now they have some bottom feeding lowlifes looting their homes. When I see looting on television, whether it be during a riot or a natural disaster I think that looters should be shot. I know if someone were doing that to MY business or home they would get a face full of buckshot or a hole that was small going in and huge coming out the other side.
The Mayor of Whitesboro has been on TV news three times already asking that gawkers and looters please stay away. The National Guard is now there and I am sure will be a huge help controlling the curious and the bargain shoppers.
Maybe I should ask the mayor of Whitesboro if I can come into town to patronize local businesses, which I do frequently. Or use the library on Main St which I also visit because it's closer for me then Utica's. The damn roads are open & i ain't gawking. I don't blame him for sounding off on looters but lay off the rest of us who are just passing thru. A lot of communities have been affected by these floods & he's the only one accusing people of gawking at what's happened. It's b.s. imho.
