Japanese people are setting the example

When crises and national disasters have happened across the world and in the United States, there are usually reports of violence and looting as people scramble to survive or even just take advantage of the situation for personal gain. Remember the images from Katrina when people were stealing TV’s and other electronics? For some reason, Japan has proven to be an exception.

“Let’s talk about something positive,” Glenn said. “The amazing story of the Japanese people. As the darkness grows, so does the light. And the Japanese people, there’s still no looting.”

“ There’s always going to some element of, you know, human nature that takes over for some people and that stuff happens. Not, seemingly not so far in Japan, though,” Stu said.

As the radio guys point out, the stories across the Internet focus on the unusual phenomena of no looting, as if chaos and looting should be the norm in this situation.
