— Some residents of a New York City neighborhood that suffered fire and flooding during Superstorm Sandy said thieves looted their damaged houses over Thanksgiving.

The New York Post reported that thieves struck at least three homes in the Breezy Point section of Queens.

One couple lost a $25,000 coin collection along with jewelry and watches.

The break-ins occurred Wednesday or Thursday when many residents were away for the holiday.

Robert Bainbridge said looters took $400 in two change jars. He said he’s trying to repair his flooded home and the theft “adds insult to injury.”

The Post reported that there were 14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18. There were none during the same period last year.

It is a shame that there are low life folks out there who would loot the homes of people who have already been through hell. What is a bigger shame is that there is some low life in Arkansas who felt a need to ad insult to injury with such a stupid comment on the news story. I think the comment lets us know what kind of books bookreader can comprehend.

It's a dog eat dog world and no matter how politically correct you are, that will never change. You might not like bookreader's message, but I don't think his comprehension is flawed.
