Where is the help that N.O. needs?

We are faster at helping others than we are at helping our own!!! This link is what Mayor Ray Nagin is saying.

I agree that not enough is being done - however, I don't see why the locals weren't doing something before the others could get there. It seems like everyone was waiting on everyone else to do something. The whole thing is being handled disgracefully. Of course the people who could get out and didn't, the ones who decided to loot and general trouble makers have done everything they could to slow things down. The shootings are completely stupid and I think the ones shooting should be shot on the spot. They aren't up to any good cause and only complicating an already horrible condition while endangering anyone trying to help. I know I wouldn't be going in there if thugs, rapists and gangs with ak47's were what I would be up against. A completely terrible situation all the way around. May God have mercy on all.

some of the military stationed here were called out today to deal with those trouble makers. They were also given orders to shoot to kill.I don't know if that is needed, but, I just hope that it doesn't get out of hand and someone get a little gun happy on the wrong people.

BTW, any admins that feel this is getting political, just delete it. I don't want to break any rules.

If America doesn't change, we are looking at the future of America.

The fall will terribly great.

I'm not a HUGE Star Wars freak, but this reminds me of a line (I think from one of the video games)

"To fall is such a quiet thing. Much more horrible is admitting it"

Of course, it probably is worth noting that the 90,000 square mile area that was basically destroyed by the storm is about the same size as the United Kingdom...

Not that I mind them commenting on things, but how well would they have dealt with it?
