(NaturalNews) It's not even nightfall and the looting after superstorm Sandy has already begun. One person in Philadelphia has already been arrested on suspicion of looting, and residents throughout Philly and NYC widely expect a wave of looting to kick off tonight as darkness falls.

The New York State Police Department has formed an anti-looting patrol in anticipation of the looting, reports RT News. "People usually don't loot in the middle of a hurricane -- they wait until the end," said SeanMichael Pagano, an investigator with the New York State Police Department who has been placed on the anti-looting patrol.

And yes, absurdly, the mainstream media as well as a large number of netizens remain in a state of total denial about the looting that's about to take place. Publications such as The Atlantic Wire accuse Matt Drudge of "stirring up a panic" by reporting the news that Twitter users are actively recruiting "looting gangs" to exploit the post-storm situation! Yep, it's all Drudge's fault for actually reporting the news. How dare journalists tell the truth about looters! That story, by the way, was originally posted at InfoWars.com, an alternative news organization that's routinely attacked for reporting the truth.

How dare we report the truth! In fact, how dare weathermen report the approaching hurricane at all! That's too negative! All the weather reports should be positive! Tomorrow's forecast is sunny with no clouds, and that's the official forecast every day from here forward, okay?

Residents of Philly, NYC beg National Guard to arrive and stop the expected wave of looters

Natural News has heard from a resident of Philadelphia about how locals are calling 911 and begging authorities to send National Guard troops to their neighborhoods! And why? To stop the wave of looting that's widely expected to take place tonight, of course.

As we were told, exactly:

"Everyone here is aware that looting will be happening here either by tonight or sooner. Everyone is unarmed in my building to my knowledge, and my neighbors have actually been calling 911 just to ask when the National Guard is coming. Multiple buildings in this area have collapsed and we're already fully aware of looting... they use boats. There was also a man on a jet ski being chased by cops who used cars."

Police everywhere are being alerted to looting risk

Rest assured that every active-duty cop in New York City is being told today to be on the alert for looters tonight. This isn't some conspiracy theory, it's a simple fact of criminology: Criminals exploit weaknesses in policing to steal, loot, pillage and even rape.

I have no idea why so many people choose to live in a state of delusional denial about all this. It's almost as if they psychologically can't deal with reality, so it's just easier for them to deny it. The "stop being negative" crowd is also the same crowd that refuses to prepare, refuses to evacuate, and thereby creates emergencies for everybody else who is forced to rescue them from imminent danger.

Make no mistake: Looting prime time begins tonight and will last for many days. With the power expected to be out for 7 - 10 days in many areas, as already announced by Con Ed, this provides a very large "window of opportunity" for looters to engage in low-risk looting. No power means no surveillance cameras, no street lights and almost certainly no police, since the police will be busy answering all the other urgent calls. As Mayor Bloomberg announced today, NYC 911 was receiving 10,000 calls every 30 minutes during the storm. That number continues to be elevated today, and police will have no time whatsoever to respond to property theft incidents.

Denial is not a defense against looters

For the record, denial is not a strategic defense against looters. They really don't care if you "think positive" or even if you live in a state of denial. They're coming to steal your jewelry, your cash, your electronics and anything else they can get their hands on. Whatever you happen to believe about the world is of no consequence to their plans.

"Thinking positive" does not make the lock on your front door any stronger. It does not prevent your windows from being smashed in. Thinking positive is a wonderful strategy for day-to-day living, but it cannot replace actual physical preparedness against determined criminals. For that, you need to take decisive action to prepare yourself and your property.

If thinking positive, all by itself, stopped criminals then we wouldn't even need local police. We could just roll out "Think Positive Squads" and let them stop all the crime by wishing it away.

Heck, we wouldn't need fire stations, either. Instead, cities could just hire crews of "positive thinkers" to sit around and wish for no fires. Problem solved!

In fact, why not just eliminate all ambulances and hospitals while we're at it, too, through "positive thinking?" Let's all just wish there were no medical emergencies. No heart attacks. No strokes or even construction accidents. Roll out the wishing brigade and all of society's problems disappear, right?

Of course not.

Wishing didn't stop superstorm Sandy. It didn't stop the power grid from failing. It didn't stop the 33 fatalities that have already been reported. It didn't stop the generator failures at hospitals. It didn't stop the water from rushing in and flooding the NYC subway system.

And it's not going to stop looters.

So to all those who live in a state of total denial about the looting we're going to see this week: Get a grip on reality. Stop kidding yourself about the criminals that exist in society and what they're capable of doing if presented with a window of opportunity.

Maybe the average citizen just doesn't get this because they've never spent time with local peace officers. I have, and I get it. Ask any cop -- ANY cop you can find -- about whether looting is likely to happen following this storm, and virtually 100% of them will tell you, "Of course!" They know the truth about human behavior. Cops see the worst of humanity day in and day out, and they know that grid-down situations routinely bring out the looters once darkness falls.

Hence the entire reason why they are already forming anti-looting patrols.

Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
