How to use loot in a sentence?

  1. President Barack Obama on Tuesday:

    There's no excuse for the kind of violence that we saw yesterday. It is counterproductive, when individuals get crowbars and start prying open doors to loot, they're not protesting. They're not making a statement. They're stealing. When they burn down a building, they're committing arson. And they're destroying and undermining businesses and opportunities in their own communities. That robs jobs and opportunity from people in that area.

  2. President Obama:

    There's no excuse for the kind of violence that we saw yesterday, when individuals get crowbars and start prying open doors to loot, they're not protesting. They're not making a statement. They're stealing.
