Did WLTX even care to call Kershaw County Sheriff's office to see if they had any reports of looting? That's because there aren't any. Sheriff McCaskill has had deputies out there 24/7 since Saturday night. They were even there during the height of the storm. They are doing a great job protecting the properties.
The word is out now that the residents are armed, so I doubt there will be any reports. They will move on to other areas that are unprotected. They may be doing a great job of protecting the property (and maybe if our National Guard troops were actually home where they belong instead of being overseas doing the job that the full-time military needs to be doing), they would be at home to protect their friends and neighbors.

And, Tina...

Just be sure to make it a kill shot. Don't want to leave any witnesses to tell their stories to a bleeding-heart Liberal jury.

If it were up to most of these people, only the criminals would have guns.

From what I was told, there were never any reports of looting. Even before the residents took up arms.

All looters should be shot, stuffed and placed in the front yard of the shooter as a warning to the others.

<quoted text>i agree, Stacey. Elgin is my home too and I would be very happy to know i had neighbors that would protect my home and property if i wasn't home.
for all the people using this as an excuse to make jokes or smart comments, just wait til a tornado visits your neighborhood and tell me then if you think it's funny to lose your home.
it won't matter if it's a mobile home or a mansion. people work hard to pay for what they can afford, and it contains their possessions and life's memories. homeless is homeless.
i was very lucky with minimal damage. but some of my neighbors weren't so lucky. all you jokesters and smarta$$es should have taken a ride up here the day after. maybe you wouldn't think it's so funny.
you rock, Tina.
Well said shovelhead .. BRAVO !.... MAN.... BRAVO!!!

Sure you can. In fact them folks in Elgin are so friendly that when they see you filling up your truck with free stuff they will be so kind as to fill you up with free lead.

Are you really that stupid? bringing a handgun to an assault rifle fight.

Why don't you just bring a pocket full of rocks. Oh, that's right. I forgot. The rocks are in your head.

I could care less about what you have to say. Why don't you take some concrete blocks, tie them to your feet and drown yourself in the nearest lake or river.
