Thanks for the link. Why the hell did they demolish it? Shouldn't they have contacted the owner of it? He seems pretty pissed off about it.

This is (was) the bar from Gateway Marina in Brooklyn. We have been trying to find out its location and can't believe it has been demolished. We have sustained many damages at our business and have had no power, television coverage, phone or internet as have many businesses and people in this devastated community. One of our customers sent this link to us. We are devastated that we were not given the opportunity to recover it. Our liquor license was posted inside the bar with our address. We are not even a mile or so from this location. This is NOT the Sugar Bowl from Breezy Point.

Flotsam, which is the wreckage or cargo of a ship that washes ashore. Jetsam is the unwanted crap a sip jettisons.

Once it detached, it became an oceangoing vessel of commerce and the wreckage was salvage. If the bar didn't have marine insurance, fark 'em.

You bet your ass that if some brown people would have found the bar, the article would use looting instead of finding.

katerbug72: Thanks for the link. Why the hell did they demolish it? Shouldn't they have contacted the owner of it? He seems pretty pissed off about it.


I can understand his frustration but would wager the structure would not be usable as a whole. Even if he or his insurance company would pay the transportation costs, getting a certificate of occupancy for the thing would be tough.
Thousands worth in floatation add-ons? If piece was a complete loss from an insurance perspective, the owner would sure like to make use of salvageable materials.
 
2012-11-07 03:47:26 PM  
Call it salvage not looting. The authoritarians wouldn't have let the original owners sell it, and the cops would have seized it as "evidence."

JackieRabbit: KarmicDisaster: So, was that looting or scavenging?

I think that if it had wound up on someone's lawn then it becomes their property, it's fair game for the property owner to salvage it. If it wound up on the street and can't be easily moved then it's simply debris. In either case, it's fair game. Now if it came to rest on the same property that it originated and people who did not own the property raided it, then that would be looting.

That's a little more complicated because a vehicle has a title. I think that if that person failed to remove the vehicle in a timely manner, then you could consider it abandoned, and get a new title issued and claim it.

Total BS, and it was theft of property, pure and simple. Just because Mother Nature moves something that belongs to you, it isn't any less yours.

Imagine this: You park your car on the driveway and don't apply the parking brake tightly enough. There's a minor tremor, just enough to get your car to roll off your driveway, across the road, and into your neighbor's driveway without damaging anything. Does your car now belong to your neighbor? Of course not.

This is no different. By these own people's admission, this bar's property was largely salvageable, until they took everything of value for themselves and sprayed graffiti on anything they couldn't move. Assuming insurance doesn't cover it, the bar owner is now out for the stock of alcohol and anything else that was taken or intentionally damaged by a bunch of entitled assholes.

It would be one thing to take it if it were a life and death matter and they were starving and parched, but they weren't. They went "Ooo, free alcohol".

That's just wrong. It's not quite looting because it's debatable whether they were on somebody else's property or not, but it is certainly theft.

But if you just immediately took it as your own without giving them an opportunity to find and claim it, it would be theft. And it would still be theft even if it didn't have a title.

Take my example just now, and switch "riding lawnmower" for "car". Minor earthquake, your riding mower rolls across the road and onto your neighbor's driveway. Is the mower now instantly his property? Of course not.
