The rain may have stopped, but a 200 foot break in the 17th St. Levee is flooding New Orleans. This isn't over by a long shot. 80% of the city is experiencing flooding, some of it 20 or more feet deep. The National Guard is on hand to deter looting, but sporadic reports are trickling in. Read any of the links on the right hand side of the page - all have many more story links than we could ever hope to gather.

Seems like it would be really, really hard to tell if someone is just trying to quiet a rumbing stomach. Or find clean water.

Hate to say it, but when the apocalypse comes to Chicago I ain't exactly worrying about who is breaking into who's car.

OTOH, shoot to kill for violence, arson or other heightened forms of CDTP. And probably a host of other public-safety/borderline terrorist possibilities.

What... Me WORRY ?

Aug. 30, 2005- For immediate release: from the Office of the Press Secretary to the President of the United States- "President Commemorates 60th Anniversary of V-J Day" in Sunny San Diego, California!

It's just nice to know our go-to-guy is all over this incredible disaster; Thank God we're all safe with him steering our ship over these "troubled waters"...

"I'll be right over to the State of New Orleans (uhhh- or... make that back in D.C. for some serious stratemegizing...) ...right after this quick little quality photo-op jaunt out here on the "Left Coast" to "reassure" you fine citizens by tying my dirty war in Iraq to the vets of that "Good War" we all know and love... (gotta get the propaganda out! Heh-heh!)"

Go WEST My Pet Goat! Go WEST!

With all the blame on police for racial profiling lately... let me ask you this....

Watching the live coverage of the hurricane I noticed this so clearly...


All the looting are blacks....

All the people who ignored the evacution orders and now are sitting on the roofs of their houses are black.....

All these service men from the Reserves and Coast Guards risking thier lives plucking these stupid people who refused to leave when ordered off these roofs is just amazing!

In a real world I would charge these people the cost to rescue them. It would be one thing if there was no warning of this hurricane but not only was there a warning but a luwful order given to evacuate.

Funny how the white first responders are so racial when confronted on the street by these same people... but they are now their savior when plucking them off their roofs....

Maybe they should stay on their roof and tell the first responders we don't want whitey helping us. We'll wait for some black rescuers!

For a population that makes up less than 13 percent of the US population, they surely screw up more things than 13 percent in this country!

always so many excuses for the blacks...

thats right... Whitey's fault again!

If they were offered free pro basket ball
tickets 200 miles away I bet they would of
found a way to get there.


I dont care how poor I am... you tell me
a Cat 5 hurricane is coming I am getting my family out of there...


Save the bullshit for the liberals


If there is so many poor WHITES also in this area why arent we seeing the WHITES looting and sitting on roof tops!


Give me a fucking break!


The whole reason most of these people are poor and in the shape they are is because people like you who have handed them everything in life and not making them get off the crack pipe and work!


Once again they are the VICTIMS!

Looting???

Wait a minute.

If television footage of "looting" in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is accurate, I submit that most of the so-called looters are merely attempting to SURVIVE a natural catastrophe of epic proportions.

At this point, you can NOT compare the tragedy of New Orleans with rioting, looting, sniping, arson and the civil unrest Chicagoans experienced years ago. TV footage shows that most of the the "proceeds" of the "looting" are food, groceries, uncontaminated bottled water and beverages.

Power and communications are out indefinitely. If you didn't have the wherewithal to get out of town to safety, what would YOU do?

When mobs start carting off plasma TV units, appliances, clothes and other non-essentials, THAT is LOOTING. I have no doubt that actual looting has occurred. Martial law is necessary.

However, if I was NOPD and people were carting off essentials from a grocery market, I would take no action.

With breached levees and deeper flooding certain, let's keep our priorities intact.

This will only get much worse, not just in terms of loss of lives.

Right now, these folks need our prayers. May God help them!

Roll that video back- I'm saying I spotted an ASIAN person (bi-racial at least) looting one of the stores! (or was he the owner's son who ran out out of ammo and decided "if ya can't beat `em..." ;-> )

When they are looting gym shoes, tvs, sterios and other such items... its not to survive asshole. I wouldnt blame anyone from looting food....

So relax mr. liberal....

Once again they are victims...


By the way....

2 male blacks open fire tonight on a New Orleans police station with AK-47s as reported by the 24 hr. cable channels...

You think that they were just check the ammo to hunt for food too? And thats ok too?

What does taking groceries and bottled water from supermarkets have to do with the two AK-47 #%&*@#s at the district station on Rampart Street?

Since you will never make detective.. let me explain what it has to do with each other....

First of all we were talking about looters stealing tv's, radios, vcr's and other non-essential items by the blacks...

Second.. to just open fire on a police station during a national emergency shows the true mentally of these sick animals.

So when you combine the facts of blacks looting for anything of value, staying there when they were told there was a mandatory evacuation order and then opening fire on a police station...

Shows they aren't just "victims" of the storm....

Oh by the way... with all the poisons in the waters....and diseases...the great thing is most of these jerks will be critically ill or dead soon, as the news is reporting.


Its a good needed cleansing!

I knew this was coming before it was reported:

New Orleans police related that a M/B looter was robbed of the property that he had worked so so so hard to loot.

The subjected demanded a police report.


New Orleans police complied. And wrote up an Arrest Report for him.

Looks like all that looting is not going to do em any good once the all the roads close up due to the water rising, those people won't be able to get out.

One of the problkems with CPD today is the level of covert racism expressed by (admittedly) a few of its officers. It gives the impression that the same views are held by all of the others because they usually refuse to condemn the attitudes of that small minority who are racist. To speak more on topic, there are looters in N.O. most of the ones shown are M/1. That doesn't mean that they represent everyone M/1's or looters. Some are stealing to eat or find something to drink, but to use this as an escuse to spew your racial hatred on all blacks shows your ignorance. To do it anonymously shows your cowardace.

Obviously, the rage management sessions have been an abysmal failure. I had hoped that your paranoia was borderline. I'm sorry.

Take five of your 200 mg THORAZINE tablets NOW! Call me for an appointment first thing tomorrow morning.

If your symptoms persist this evening, don't hesitate. Check into the ER or call the suicide hotline.
