In the ugly aftermath of Hurricane Ian, Sheriff Grady Judd of Polk County, Florida, offered some blunt advice to anyone who is at home when a looter comes in to sack the place.
“I would highly suggest that if a looter breaks into your home, comes into your home while you’re there to steal stuff, that you take your gun and you shoot him,” He said on “Fox & Friends” last week. “You shoot him so that he looks like grated cheese, because you know what? That’s one looter that won’t break into anyone else’s home and take advantage of them when they’re the most vulnerable and the most weak.”
Sheriff Judd has surveyed his county and found that there was much evidence of criminals taking advantage of the chaos in the wake of the wind and flood devastation, both in businesses and homes.
“I was down there…this weekend, and it’s total devastation,” he said. “People have a right to be safe in their homes. They have a right for their property to be safe even when part of their home may be torn away. And these looters, that’s unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable.”
Governor Ron DeSantis has also issued warnings of his own.
“Don’t even think about looting… We’re a second-amendment state.”

Sheriff Judd is something of a hero to 2nd-Amendment advocates. Back in May, he spoke about the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. He said that barricade situations can be averted by arming and training teachers or other staff members on campus.
“I can tell you this,” he said plainly. “I want them to shoot them, shoot them so much that you can read the local newspaper through them. Neutralize the threat.”
“At the end of the day, as simple as it may sound, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” Judd asserted. “There needs to be multiple people on that campus in advance, well-trained, that’s prepared to and can go in and stop the threat.”
Governor DeSantis said that 3 of 4 looters nabbed in a burglary arrest in Lee County last week were in the U.S. illegally, according to Daily Mail.
“These are people that are foreigners, they’re illegally in our country, but not only that, they try to loot and ransack in the aftermath of a natural disaster,” he said. “They should be prosecuted, but they need to be sent back to their home country. They should not be here at all.”
On the Left, people are making moronic comparisons, saying that DeSantis hypocritically speaks out against looting, having “looted” taxpayers by using $12 million of the state’s budget to ship illegals to Martha’s Vineyard.
Here’s an example:
Tell us about the $12 million dollars you used to send legal asylum seekers to Massachusetts.
You’ve been looting Florida since the day you took office.

MANBC’s Joy Reid, on the other hand, criticized him for a reason one might never guess. She called him… drumroll, please… a racist.
In a reminder of President Joe Biden’s “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids” gaffe, Reid said that DeSantis, in speaking out against looters, could be compared to a segregationist. Not just a racist. A segregationist. But in making that claim, she seems to have accidentally implied that looters are, in general, black.
In fairness, many of the recent videos we’ve seen of looters do, in fact, feature black criminals. Joy Reid is all-to-ready to defend them, ‘cuz, you know, they black.
