“No available cars,” the police dispatcher tells a police unit attempting to deal with [another outbreak of] looters. Sam’s Meat Market, a K Mart, a Taco Bell, a self storage facility and other buildings are burning to the ground without any fire department intervention (as is the protocol during a riot). There are reports of a gunman in the bed of a pickup truck firing off rounds and “gunmen in the hot zone with assault rifles.” Store owners are calling police as cars mass for attacks of looting. Police at the sharp end are calling a Code 5000: “personnel in serious situation,” asking for more officers. It’s only a question of time before the National Guard are deployed. One hopes.
