Police estimate 200 looters stole $116,000, or $580 each.

Does anybody remember the grocery store looting TV game show that debuted after the Watts Riots of 1965? You ran through the store loading your shopping cart for 90 seconds and the crew that grabbed the most dollar value of loot won.

Supermarket Sweep it was called. It premiered in December 1965.
