Any disaster will feature some low-down opportunistic looters:
Acevedo also said officers are focused on protecting the city from looters as floodwater recede.
“We’ve already arrested a handful of looters. We’ve made it real clear to our community we’re going to do whatever it takes to protect their homes and their businesses,” Acevedo said. “And when people come from the outside to Houston, Texas, know we’re going to be out in the city, we’re not going to rest as a police department or law enforcement community until people restore their lives.”
But for every thief and thug, there’s still a real man in America: enter the Cajun Navy:
One year after the Cajun Navy fleet deployed to pluck stranded families from the flood waters that overwhelmed southeast Louisiana, the volunteer rescuers have mobilized again to help in the Houston area after heavy flooding from Tropical Storm Harvey.
A second wave of volunteers with the group gathered in Baton Rouge on Monday to head to the Houston area to provide additional support.
Never underestimate good guys with jon boats.
