Houston authorities imposed an overnight curfew Tuesday, incensed that criminals impersonating law enforcement officers in the wake of Hurricane Harvey were victimizing the city's hardest-hit residents. With the police department strained to the limit after the historic storm, thousands of people are on their own, and as the mayor said, "the reality is there are some people who might be inclined to take advantage of this situation." The Harris County District Attorney's Office said 14 people have been arrested on suspicion of looting, but the Police Chief said there had been scores of other reports of even worse behavior. Specifically, people were wearing T-shirts claiming to represent Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Homeland Security Department's Investigations division. He said real agents of both agencies don't wear T-shirts, so Houstonians should demand to see ID or call 911 before they open their doors.
