All you have to do is look at any disaster here in the United States. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, etc. There is always looting going on from hitting businesses to individual residences. Look at the idiots that didn't have enough sense to get on a bus and get out of Louisiana during a major hurricane, but there are thousands of pictures of looters stealing everything from beer to TVs (which were basically worthless) and anything else they could float or carry.
You didn't see that crap going on in Japan with a tsunami and a nuclear disaster going on at the same time!
