Snopes chimes in. Make of it what you will...<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Jack Stokes, AP's director of media relations, confirmed today that [photographer Dave] Martin says he witnessed the people in his images looting a grocery store. "He saw the person go into the shop and take the goods," Stokes said, "and that's why he wrote 'looting' in the caption."<br><br>Regarding the AFP/Getty "finding" photo by [photographer Chris] Graythen, Getty spokeswoman Bridget Russel said, "This is obviously a big tragedy down there, so we're being careful with how we credit these photos." Russel said that Graythen had discussed the image in question with his editor and that if Graythen didn't witness the two people in the image in the act of looting, then he couldn't say they were looting.<br><p><hr></blockquote><p>
Dead wrong to call people taking Pampers and food and water in this crisis looters. This was a very stupid issue regarding the photo captions.<br><br>The Walmart security police caught stealing carts of Nike's is definitely looting. The guy caught on camera stealing a big screen TV and wading up to his chest to go nowhere with it is something else entirely.<br><br><br><br>
I have to agree. (A rare event...don't get used to it. )<br><br>A guy walks into Kroger and gets a jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread to feed his family...I can't call that looting. <br><br>Jerome and 3 of his friends bust into Circuit City and steal 3 Playstations and a Plasma TV...that would be looting. <br><br>
In a last ditch effort to save the Playstations, Jerome used the Plasma TV as a raft. After that, he picked up his friend Ray Ray on the roof at the end of the street to go knock over Toys R Us to see if they had Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. <br><br>
