Boutique Looter

Re: “Ezra Levant: Mob rules in attack on Vancouver rioters,” June 21, 2011:
Camille Cacnio was filmed during the Vancouver riot outside a smashed and looted boutique. She’d taken a designer handbag and told the reporter this was because she had “liked” it. She seemed oddly composed, considering all the mayhem; absent was any sense of wrongdoing on her part. In this, she was like most others in the streets: smug, clueless; feeling entitled. It was as if they were all refugees from Superman’s Bizarro World, where logic is inverted and surreal outcomes pass for normal. Some, no doubt, will still inhabit their Bizarro World, even en route to jail.
