Stealing from the Salvation Army? Really?
You know, these are the people you need to watch out for if the Civilization Light is ever turned off, no matter how briefly, due to turbulence. These are the footsoldiers of the Free S#!t Army; the future members of the Golden Horde; proto Mutant Zombie Bikers.
If they will drive up (in a newish Cadillac, in one case!) and loot the donation trailer for the Salvation Army in broad daylight on a sunny summer Sunday afternoon, imagine what they will do with a foot of water in the streets and the cops on the other side of town? Or after dark with a couple of city blocks aflame?
When someone has no sense of ethics other than "You Owe Me My Fair Share", the only thing keeping them in line is the fear of getting caught, because there is obviously no internal compunction keeping them in check, nor will they face any community opprobrium for their actions.
