"Not a cop, but a year ago South Africa was hit by political unrest and riots. A lot of stores were looted, and people were walking off with multiple tvs, appliances etc.
Some citizen journalist was out on the streets, stopping looters, and interviewing them. It's winter, it's dark, and suddenly this little kid appears, holding a single bag. All alone. Couldn't have been more than 8. The citizen journalist stops him, and demands to see what's in the bag. He opens it up. One t-shirt. One jersey. One pair of pants. One pair of shoes. A three pack of underwear. This little kid had followed a group of adults into a chaotic situation and taken what he needed, and only what he needed."
