How Do You Stop a Blonde From Looting?

No, not a joke.  Really, how do you stop two blonde Serbs from looting in Belgrade?  The soon-to-be-next-YouTube hit:

The cameraman needs some sort of award for this:

A persistent amateur cameraman followed the women as they loaded up with chocolates at a corner shop, came out giggling, then went after designer bags, shoes and clothes at Belgrade’s swankiest stores in its vandalized main shopping street.
“Get lost, stop filming,” one of them shouted, so laden down with booty that clothes and bags dripped to the ground amid the broken glass below emptied storefronts.
“But you are the heroines of this protest for me,” the cameraman replied sarcastically above the din of burglar alarms.
Looters seized their chance as rioters attacked Western embassies during a mass rally to protest at U.S. and European support for Kosovo’s independence.
The second woman covered her face with a pair of looted shoes when she saw she was being filmed.
“Have you found your size yet?” asked the cameraman.
