That's right folks - instead of offering assistance tho those who were injured or maimed these folks are more concerned about their "victory jacket" and felt it was more important for them to have one of these in stead of helping those in need.

Another example of the "I want it all and I want it now" society - wonder what the age group of those folks are - Pathetic for sure.

If this is what was going on - looting Marathon Jackets in the wake of bombings with the injured feet away - despicable but not really surprised. Seems that Massachusetts is being overrun with these types lately - Real Estate here is very valuable and many from Wall Street have been moving in to invest spreading their WS Pottersville mentality with them - Mass has the highest wealth gap in the nation and the self-champion me me me, I deserve more than you, "play it to win" mentality is thick (CAPITALIZING on others pain and misfortune is quite familiar to these types just like they do on Wall Street) All we can hope is that the contrast of the good people who helped will come shining through and outweigh this selfish mentality that was displayed so openly without a hint of shame. Maybe it's time to start shaming greed - but us emotional compassionate types - we are too nice for that (we don't want to sink ourselves down to their level.) Greed is not good. Greed makes you ugly. Unfortunately people like this only care when they are shamed into pretending to care.

So tell me what does "wealth gap" have to do with people doing shit like this? They are the ones who like to blame wall street for all their greed but I see the same comparison -

The people in the video looked like mid to upper class to me ...At any rate this "got to get mine quick before someone else does" even if at the expense of the victims or those hurt or by failing to realize there are people in front of them suffering ,is easily akin to the same mentality that has caused the wealth gap here

poor people don't take days off to travel to boston to run a marathon

Actually they might poor people do run in marathons , but tthe looters did not run in the marathon they may have even been reporters or just watching and were dressed in regular clothes iregardless it's this frenzy of greed that is obviously infectious and can infect anyone of any class ..wallstreet acts like this everyday we just don't see it on video and yet they have convinced us all it is ok to capitalize irregardless of the victims laying about or the indignity of their actions the citizenry has been infected with it with careful help from media and marketers id say whoever those terrorisare are suffering from the same ailment our society is sick and the causes are easy to see. In a compassionate society where people are taught empathy and to care about others rather than about having more or stomping on others to get what they want you would not see so much violence befalling us without empathy our society will get even worse everyone attacking eachother for ego or for personal gain or ignoring suffering if it means you come out on top... very sad not a world I want for my children or future generations to have to live in

Did you even watch teh video?

Those were the slowest, oldest "thieves" I have ever seen.

And like I always say when you bash the youth for violence- nice job raising them boomers.

ha ha ha rich boomers stealing jackets while others die another typical act of the me generation.

How about you enlarging the video so you can get a really good look at who's not giving a shit but about themselves.

And if the youth hasen't finally realized what their problem is then screw them - I don't feel sorry for them.

I just found out that a relative of mine found her son dead in a closet - apparently he shot himself - he didn't give a shit about his mother and the suffering she is going to be going through did he.

We have a bunch of sorry ass losers in this country and it's pathetic to think what's going to happen to this country when they get their turn to be in charge.

Go ahead and defend them - you are probably part of that generation - and they are the ones talking about "greedy wall street" - they are just as bad.

Well that is afuck it can't do attitude on your part since we know what's wrong why don't we try to fix it. there is a lot of beauty in this world it would be sad if we let the greed take over everything that is good like the people that were helping the victims if wedont we may as well go and end it like yourfriend if only he could have seen how much good there could be if we can get beyond the bad stuff he was not a loser he just could not find hope andprobably convinced himself his family wasbetter off without him we can't let the world do that to us...all of us are important and should have a space in this world if we want it we each serve a purpose and deserve dignity we can't let ourselves be convinced that we have no part or place here
