What exactly is the police policy for people 'looting' things like food and water? Doesn't make any sense too shoot them, which I certainly don't hope is the case.
The police cheif and local officials have basically said that they aren't going to mess with people stealing foor and water. But there's not much of trhat left at this point anyway, it's mostly being giving out by people who have brought it into the city.
