Even as heroic rescue efforts continue throughout the coastal cities in Texas and Louisiana there are human vultures showing up to steal from people who have already lost too much. It is being reported in Houston for example, that individuals posing as firefighters or homeland security agents are ordering people to leave their homes that are then looted.
Other homeowners are being forced from their homes at gun point by looters. Texas has enhanced penalties that kick in for looting in this type of situation and people convicted can face sentences up to life in prison.
