Now, I sort of wonder why this happened. Something in me wants to believe that somehow people think (wrongly IMHO) that without an obvious massive authority, we'll all devolve into savages. But that explanation really isn't very satisfying. Were people reporting massive violence in order to get attention from authorities in the hopes they'd hand out water or food? And the media picked it up and ran with it because it was sensational?
I don't know. Hmmm...
