"F*ck Off, Snitch": Reporter Blasted for Notifying Cops of Hurricane Harvey Looting

"F*ck Off, Snitch": Reporter Blasted for Notifying Cops of Hurricane Harvey Looting

History is repeating itself, this time with slightly different targets.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina tore through New Orleans, leaving many homeless as 800,000 housing units were destroyed and streets were flooded. While the disaster prompted worldwide relief efforts and brought out the best of people, it also brought out some of the worst:

Looters quickly took to the streets; chaos and lawlessness set in as residents were assaulted and raped. It quickly became a priority for police and first responders to re-establish order to affected areas.

Incredibly, leftists stepped up to label the natural disaster an issue of "black pain," brazenly shoehorning in their political narrative as thousands suffered. Suddenly, criminal thugs that were looting were merely survivors 'finding' supplies — anyone that disagreed were racists. We find it hard to believe that basketball shoes and flat-screen TVs are necessary for survival.

Twelve years later in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, once again we see the best of people and the worst of people.

From Yahoo News:

ABC News chief national correspondent Tom Llamas suffered a massive Twitter backlash on Tuesday after he notified Houston police about “looting” during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

“We informed police of the looting and Coast Guard is flying overhead. Multiple officers now on the scene,” Llamas said in a tweet he sent and later deleted.

Many on social media accused Llamas of snitching on people in need, arguing that there is a difference between “looting” and grabbing food and supplies to survive a devastating emergency.

One user simply replied, “F— off, snitch.”

Llamas later clarified: “Let me clear this up- we were w/ police who had discovered a dead body & mentioned we saw ppl w/ faces covered going into a supermarket nearby.”

It appears that Llamas didn’t call police, he simply notified authorities with whom he was already interacting. That detail didn’t stop the backlash. The second tweet — also deleted — received a thousand replies within 40 minutes, most of them negative.

ABC News declined to comment.

History is repeating itself and our country has become more divided than ever.

Somehow, we find it hard to believe that survivors are scavenging for flat-screen TVs and weaves for survival.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
