Looters beware

Seems like every press conference McMaster jumps right in on looting, then safety.

1. Par for the course: Fear-based Decision Making.

In Conservative minds, property is always more important than life.

2. Looting does cause a lot of problems for authorities trying to evacuate people.

The fear of losing property to looters causes a lot of people to stay home when they should flee to safety.

5. It depends. Many storms don't leave lawless zones.

A friend who rushed back to the Keys (he had disaster relief credentials) after Irma did encounter them and was able to scare them away from his home. His home fared well, but a few neighbors houses were totally destroyed by the storm. One house that had been built to survive anything mother nature could throw at it was destroyed when the roof of another house came free and landed on it. He's completely shaken and plans to leave the Keys.
