43. Exactly right. This isn't rioting now, it's just straight up

looting. Grabbing merchandise and running, loading the car then coming back for more. These are opportunists. Rioting implies an emotional reaction to injustice, but this is just opportunistic looting.



The looting takes away from the protestors. It loses the message and enhances the police image.
