Bill Melugin, KTTV-TV reporter, interviewed the the unidentified man as he was sitting on the sidewalk in handcuffs, waiting for transportation to jail.
“Alright man, we saw you at the New Balance store. Why are you out here?” Asked Melugin.
“Uh, man, period, point blank. Just like all my real ones tryna do, just tryna get some monies,” the looter replied. “There ain’t no explanation. That’s it.”
The looter admitted what he was doing had nothing to do with George Floyd to the reporter. “I mean, a little bit to do with that, too, you feel me? But not really. I am out here for the dough.”
