ABC News anchor reports on Houston flood survivors stealing food, directly to police
The situation in Houston remains dire, as dams begin overflowing with rains that have already wrought catastrophic damage and swept away thousands of homes, leaving the city's residents trapped with limited recourse for shelter and no hope for evacuation. Fortunately, a brave journalist like ABC World News Tonight anchor Tom Llamas is entrenched right there on the scene, bearing witness to the many desperate people who are reduced to stealing food from supermarkets, and ensuring their stories get told directly to the cops.
Llamas, who has previously won awards for his coverage of Hurricanes Sandy and Irene, is clearly no stranger to the devastation they can cause or the frenzy they can set off in those who are just struggling to survive within them. But then, he's also not about to let some people just make off with bread or whatever before it can become waterlogged garbage-not without making a purchase. So when Llamas tweeted he was "witnessing looting right now at a large supermarket in the NE part of Houston," adding that police were on the scene after having "just discovered a body nearby," he did his civic duty and immediately informed the police of another dying thing that needed their attention: the public's respect for corporate property.
