11. When the bulldozers come they are going to scoop the dry goods and food and perhaps the owner of
a store will get to save some goods - however look at the photos of tent cities - it appears they need some tarp for privacy and protection from sun and rain. If the store ownere can't be there to sell their products, If you can't get tarp, fabric will do. It will also do to cover a dead body or wrap a dead body in it.

But, getting arrested for food? Inhumane.

We are happy when we hear they are organizing and taking charge for themselves, but do we really want them to milk a cat?

Where is the line?

We keep hearing that no one is telling them what to do. But then the police move in?

A bank, yes. Protect it. A tv - don't let them steal it. But, now is the time to think of basics of life if supplies are not getting through. Did anyone study the map showing all the roads that are closed?

If they take the food and water, they should get back to the owner and help them get re-established when the land is cleared. It appears there is an unofficial brotherly exchange. Some of this is plain survival of their kids and themselves.

I am afraid of the soldiers. They are psychologically equipped to fight enemies, those people are not the enemy unless they are going after the bank or luxuries. But luxuries that can be sold equal food,

We really don't know what we would do.
