When Is It Looting?

Postby UnderDude » Fri Nov 08, 2013 1:47 am

At what point does it become "Finders Keepers" or "Only The Strong Survive"?
We will leave the starvation of one's family out of this particular thread, so if you already have some food, water, or basic equipment when is it OK to take more?

I think it quits being called looting when all law and order has been broken down and society no longer exists. If no commercial or private enterprises exist how can you loot from them?

It is only looting when it involves loot. Otherwise it is referred to as "commandeering".

Once normal law and order is no longer enforceable it stops being looting and becomes scavenging.

When there is no longer anyone who has a personal investment in the place you are looting or commandeering (i.e. the owner), then it becomes okay to collect supplies from the place of business or home. Of course, law enforcement must also be non-existent. I'd hate to survive the onset of a ZPAW only to find myself locked behind bars with nothing for company but a few hungry rats.

As long as it isn't like the charge of the light brigade.

Most officers just carry OC spray and maybe a PR24...
The Tower guards are armed with Mini14s and 870s.
The Tac Teams have UMP-40's and G22s
That's what the Oregon DOC has anyway, can't much speak to other states...
