Amid the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, bands of looters are going house to house in flooded Texas counties holding residents at gunpoint and stealing their possessions.
Texas residents are acting as snipers on rooftops and in some cases shooting the looters, according to a witness in Refugio County, where “the wind leveled our towns.”
“Every town has looting,” Texan Pete Petropoulos told Big League Politics.
“One of my neighbors had them hold a gun on him for three hours until the sheriff came,” Petropoulos said.
“Back in the day, if you stole a horse you got hurt. We’ve got a bunch of people shot but nobody’s reported on it,” Petropoulos said. “I had some friends, people broke into their house and they shot them.” In one case, one group of residents chased down a car containing murder suspects and the police caught them.
“I think all the bodies were washed away or found already. I think they’re going to find more bodies as far as looters out in the countryside. The ranchers will probably just shoot them and drag them off into the brush. Everybody here is armed.”
“They’re looking at what’s abandoned,” Petropoulos said. “We have no lights here. We won’t have electricity for between one month to six months.”
Petropoulos noted that President Donald Trump visited his area two days ago.
The divisions defy racial lines. The Texans defending their property with guns come from all races, and so do the looters.
Steve Mnuchin Secures Commitment Towards Trumpbux 2.0 $1,200 in Stimulus Negotiations
The Democrats are holding it up.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has received a commitment from House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi on a second $1,200 stimulus payment towards American taxpayers, contingent on a broader deal with the Democratic majority in the House.
Oh boy twitter. Mnuchin just now on talks with Pelosi: "We have reached an agreement that if there is a deal there will be direct payments" — meaning the $1,200 stimulus checks. Still need the deal tho!

With an agreement on direct payments to taxpayers reached, Democrats are now holding up a second TrumpBux payment in an attempt to secure bailout pork for encumbered state and city governments. Republicans have already proposed two different stimulus packages, but the Democrats have shot down both, insisting upon a whopping $3.4 trillion package. Republicans upped the ante to a $1.4 trillion package after their first plan was rejected, but it’s still not enough for the Democrats.
The priority should be payments to taxpayers and relief for real community small businesses that are struggling to compete with digital corporate monopolies in the atomized post-coronavirus world. Somewhere along the line, Democrats decided to make bankrupt municipalities the priority. Payroll support for the struggling airline industry is also a matter of contention in the negotiations.
A vote on a tentative stimulus package was planned in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, but it appears that plan has been postponed as Mnuchin and Pelosi continue to negotiate over the substance of the legislation. The size of the total package will most likely range between $2.2 trillion and $1.5 trillion, the proposals set forth by Democrats and Republicans respectively.
