As New York City recovers from the effects of Hurricane Sandy there have been mounting reports of looting in areas where there are power outages and abandoned buildings.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said those found to be looting during this difficult time for New York should except exceptionally harsh punishment. Speaking in Coney Island on Thursday she asked people to do the right thing.
â€śThey really shouldnâ€™t prey on their neighbors in these worst of times and anyone who is caught looting during this storm should have the book thrown at them in a way that is extreme.
