Buenos Aires: Pigs Slaughtered In Street After Truck Overturns As Police Stand By

After a cage truck carrying live pigs overturned in barrio Manantiales in the Buenos Aires locality of Pilar, the wreck was swarmed with looters. After attempts to steal the live pigs met with difficulty, the looters turned to butchering them in the street and carting off the meat. Police attended the traffic interruption as strictly passive observers of the larceny without making any intervention to secure the pork.

    This happens pretty much every time there's an accident with a truck transporting anything that can be eaten or easily sold (cigarettes, foodstuff, livestock). The police couldn't possibly do anything because that would violate the irrenounceable social conquests of the people! As long as they didn't attack the truck and it just accidented by itself, pillaging the load is fair game. If they did attack the vehicle or cause the accident then it counts as piratería del asfalto and maybe something will be done, at least condemning the act in word.
