    Katrina Photos and Video Show Police Looting Wal-Mart

    Katrina Photos and Video Show Police Looting Wal-Mart

    By Cris Bergman
    Sep 3, 2005

    At least two police officers in a Louisiana Wal-Mart were caught by an
    NBC news crew apparently stealing several items from the store. The
    news crew shows several different people grabbing different items from
    the store and the reporter notes that the police say that it is okay
    to steal.

    "And we actually saw the police," veteran NBC reporter Martin Savidge
    says. "They're in aisle three."

    The camera crew then catches two uniformed female police officers
    pushing a cart full of loot while perusing the store.

    "Hi--what are you doing here," a person off camera asks one female
    police officer. "I'm doing my job," the officer says. "What taking
    shoes?" the reporter asks.

    "No--looking for looters."

    The officer then implies a threat to the reporter and his crew, and
    walks away. The video then shows the other officer pushing the
    shopping cart casually through the store.

    Savidge wraps up the segment by saying that you can only laugh, even
    though stealing is "grossly against the law."

    "When you have the police in there looting, that is a problem,"
    Savidge concludes.

    The video first aired on MSNBC on Tuesday night.

    The video is here or here.

    One note: Some outlets have identified the uniformed officers as
    "security guards." But the reporter on the scene clearly calls them
    "police."

    Do security guards usually have holstered guns?

    I think police do.
