I heard a news story on a station owned by the Bott radio network that one sheriff in a small town deputized over 100 people; gave each a rifle and six boxes of ammo. Their orders are to shoot anybody seen looting. This is interesting and maybe these extreme measures might deter the looters. I wonder how this will be viewed by the courts when things get closer to normal. I know Israel uses a shoot first and ask questions later to crime and their crime rate is much lower than ours. Their primary reason for this is not only to lower the crime rate, but also to stop terrorism, especially suicide bombers. What say you?
