Hurricane Sandy: Coney Island wreckage: Looting. A level one mobilization was called in Coney Island in regards to looting.

Cops responded to reports of looting on Coney Island Wednesday.

A wave a looters followed the Sandy storm surge in Coney Island, creating a double-whammy for business owners trying to pick up the obliterated pieces.
The thieves started down Mermaid Avenue Tuesday morning as the chest-high water receded, turning the seaside community known for its hotdogs and tourist attractions into a lawless free-for-all.

"People were running in and out of Rent-A-Center carrying these big flat screens. They were holding on tight," said witness Aisha John, 20. "I couldn't understand how someone could steal a big TV in broad
daylight, but no one cared.”

She said people were running out of a nearby Rite Aid with bags of diapers and wipes.

"Look, they've been looting our wallets for too long," said a young male who claimed he helped himself to a TV at the Rent-A-Center.

“It's about time we start taking this sh—back," the youth, who identified himself as Jesse James, told the Daily News.

"It was complete lawlessness,” said Ron Troyano, owner of Joann’s Discount Wine and Liquors on Mermaid Ave.

He said looters used tools to bust through his steel security gates around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The thieves then shattered his storefront and helped themselves to thousands of dollars worth of top shelf liquor, he said.

"They pried open the gate, broke the glass and went straight for the Hennessy and Grey Goose,” he said.

Police got a measure of control around 4 p.m. Tuesday, but two cops positioned outside Joann’s into the night failed to stop more looters from sneaking in through the roof, Troyano told The News.

"They broke right in through the roof while the cops were standing outside. It's unbelievable. They were passing bottles down to each other from the roof," he said.

Troyano said between the flooding and the plundering, his losses were too high to easily calculate. He said he’s not sure when he’ll reopen.

"We are supposed to come together as a community during times of crisis, not pick at each other like vultures," he said. "Next time I'm getting a gun."

Looters also hit The Fresh Market five blocks down.

"They destroyed everything. They stole anything they could get their hands on. Someone even ran off with the cash register," said employee Fernando Mendoza as he picked up pieces of broken glass Wednesday.

"It was a mob of people. Fifty to a hundred. They were just running down the street grabbing anything that wasn't nailed down," he said.

"They were literally walking out with shopping carts full of merchandise. They didn't even look worried,” a Rite Aid employee who declined to give her name told The News.

They looked like they were casually shopping," she said. "They looked almost happy. I saw an elderly lady walking away with batteries and a bag of Kit Kats.”

If there really was a SHTF event they would not be looking to steal items like TVs for resale. It would get ugly real fast.

Why do you all hate Obama? wtf2.gif Anyway, I think people in neighbourhoods should all get together, sort of like neighbourhood watch. If TSHTF really does happen, we will all need to work together to survive.

I don't hate Obama, any more than I feel contempt for any of these so-called leaders we have, worldwide.
Romney will be no better.
I have chosen to live outside the system. Look up "grey man", there's some good points to being white noise in the background.

All older people become 'white noise' - the unseen (ignored) in society. I think I like it.

Now that I've stopped laughing, I can reply.
Grey man is the person who appears unremarkable, if ten people saw him/her there would be ten different descriptions.
Vanity plates on a vehicle would be anathema to grey man. Flashy, stylish clothes are not what they wear.
Nothing about grey man is memorable. Age has no bearing.
