"Predatory behaviour". Interesting. I'd love to have the chance to catch one trying to prey on me. I hope the pawn shops will do the right thing

Prob is that selling sites on Facebook have circumnavigated pawn shops.

Shoplift it today, have it sold on fb almost instantly.
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

Another sad reality is that looters won't face much jail time, fines or punishments.

Yes you're correct. It boils down to "balance"

How can "we" (the courts) nail a looter to the wall when a drunk driver, 3 times the limit, kills an on duty RCMP, mother of two and gets 4 years (out in 2½ years) or a mother kills 6 babies (found in a storage locker) and gets 8 years (out in 5 1/3) and those are just two from yesterday.

I guess it boils down to that "age old doctrine" two wrongs don't make a right, but 3 do. Urrrrg.....

But we can look at the US, they have more people in jail per capita than any other Western progressive country and it hasn't fixed a thing, in fact, I think it's made it worse.

Did I just use "progressive" and "US" in the same sentence ? I'm going back to bed.

Looks like the penalties are now more than just theft. Check out this loser that made the special trip from Chilliwack to practice his craft of being a loser...

Sorry I have to disagree with you. ;)
The *bleep* is useful for something, unlike one of the lowest forms of life....looters.

Now seriously.
I feel that shaming would not work, nor would time in jail.
In the 1st place, they felt no shame when thinking about going in and take what is not theirs.
Besides, they would likely just get a slap on the wrist and told, "Don't do that again!"
I am sure that message is like wind going thru an open space. In one side and out the other.

Definitely should get jail time taking advantage of people already going thru enough distress as it is. You can't get much lower than that. More especially on such a large scale.

if he travelled from Chilliwack to rob people evacuated he should get some extra special jail time from the courts its incredibly low to do that in the first place but to travel that far out of your way is disturbing

The Government should increase the penalty for looting, and then "throw the book" at the ones they catch.
