    the store does look closed to me. Only saying i wouldn't rely on that as the pillar of your arguement.

    •  The 'NOW OPEN' signs and (none)
      automatic doors opening for customers are a dead giveaway that the store is, in fact, open. It does not look closed AT ALL.

        And doors can be forced. All i'm saying is that, aside from th signs, it doesn't really look as if the store is, in fact, open for business. Whether those people are taking things without paying is none of my concern (aside for the general concern for their safety, that is).

        If you want to argue about this that's fine with me. I think you have a good point. But i recommend you don't shout 'conspiracy' and that that store is open. To me, it looks dark.

    •  does not matter (none)
      This was just a tangential comment. It does not matter if the store is in fact open or not.

      Let's say the black woman is in fact taking stuff without paying. OK. So, in this picture, she is "looting", and in the other picture, the white folks are "finding". Both pictures from the same agency, AFP.

      That's all one needs for the argument.
