As pictures of looters in Baltimore started coming in, we noticed something surprising: People weren’t stealing expensive items. They were running off with basic necessities like toilet paper, feminine products and diapers.
What does this say about the state of the country’s poorest neighborhoods?
The man above took toilet paper and diapers, and other items, from CVS.
He also managed to subtly give the photographer the middle finger.
She took paper products: Toilet paper, Bounty napkins and paper towels.
He took two cans of Pringles, Arizona sweet tea, and feminine products– presumably for a lady in his life.
This guy took two armfuls of toilet paper. And perhaps a photo.
The guy on the far left took toilet paper and individual servings of cheese dip and mini breadsticks.
The guy on the far right snatched mouthwash and children’s toys, among other things.
