The Supermarket survivors - will they be arrested for looting?
Seriously if you have to be trapped, being trapped with food and drink can't be the worse situation on the planet.
Three survivors were pulled out this morning and one said she was in an air pocket and had food.
Now will they arrest them for looting?

2. It's obvious
Why should anyone looking for food after such a catastrophe be arrested for looting? What separates those trapped in the supermarket from others looking for food to survive?
Think on these things.

9. Thanks--it kind of turned into a monster
It was sort of an off-the-cuff rant, and then it just blew up!

16. Idiotic! Looters steal the cash registers and electronic toys from grocery stores
Hungry victims take food to feed there families. Do you think the authorities in Haiti are completely stupid

6. You May Just Have Written Monday's Rushbo Show...
You know he's been sitting in front of his big screen...eating bon bons, popping oxy and thumbing through his copy of "Boys Life" and scheming up some kind of racist spin for Monday.

14. Just wait for the spin - Rush will claim that Bush
was "embarrassed and bullied" into helping with the fundraising efforts by Obama & Clinton! Mark my words...after everything that fucker said last week, it's impossible to put anything past him as far as boundaries he's unwilling to cross!
