First of all, we know that not all of the people you see on this video shot Monday after the Boston Marathon explosions are looting race jackets. Yes, there are runners grabbing a jacket. They earned that jacket by finishing the marathon.
But there’s one fat, bald blob smoking a cigarette and taking more than one jacket. There’s also some black dude, who already has a jacket in his left arm, grabbing another handful of jackets on his way through.
Maybe all of these people coach marathon teams and were taking jackets back to help people displaced by the explosions.
One can only hope.
