We need To pray for these people!

I wish Put Trader was here.  I'm sure he'd have some kind things
to say about all those dark-skinned looters in New Ohrleahns.

Thats uncalled for. I do not think any of this is a laughing matter!

indytwo,


Unfortunately you haven't been here long enough to understand the mentality of certain folks on this forum.


The good thing is that they tend to reveal themselves (as you can see).

Hey, who's down in New Ohrleahns shooting at rescue helicopters?







They are shooting at the people coming to help them. 

Sep 1, 2005 5:28 pm

Not only are they shooting at rescue helicopters, they're shooting at hospital workers!



http://www.cnn.com/2005/WEATHER/09/01/katrina.impact/index .html



New Orleans' Charity Hospital halted efforts to evacuate its patients
after it came under sniper fire, according to Dr. Tyler Curiel, who
witnessed the incidents.



"We were coming in from a parking deck at Tulane Medical Center, and
a guy in a white shirt started firing at us," Curiel said. "The
National Guard (troops), wearing flak jackets, tried to get a bead on
this guy. "


The incident happened around 11:30 a.m. (12:30 p.m.
ET). About an hour later, another gunman opened fire at the back of
Charity Hospital.


Evacuations by boat were halted after armed looters threatened medics, and overturned one of their boats.


The sniper attacks were the latest incidents of violence that have disrupted efforts to help people in the flooded city.



I guess every few minutes you can hear gunfire in New Orleans.  And in Mississippi?  The same thing!


I'm sure Put would have some choice, and hillarious, things to say about this!

I am sure that you know all of the names and races of those that are shooting...right?


Or at least you THINK you do...

Yeah...Put was loved, admired, and respected for his intelligence and sense of humor.  Just like you.

 Wow! Your are a real stand up guy laughing at this situation! 

Sep 1, 2005 6:02 pm

You know, many of these people did'nt have a lot,.....and now they have nothing....I saw one woman on the news carrying her infant in a car seat, with 2-3 other kids behind her, crossing a bridge - in 100 + degree temp. to hopefuly find......something...better.


Be thankful.

I'm not laughing at the situation.  A horrible tragedy.  I
am, however, laughing at the idiocy and stupidity of the utter morons
who are sabotaging the relief efforts to help them!



They're shooting at the rescuers!



Come on--if you were a member of the National Guard or a private
citizen, would you want to be shot at?  Would you want to be
randomly attacked for NO REASON?



This looks just like Africa.  Just like it. 



My goodness, some of those women have 4 or 5 babies.

They didn't have a lot because they were welfare parasites.  They didn't work!


Being an average, middle-class american is NOT difficult.

I'm thankful all right.



Maybe those lazy welfare bastards should get jobs and maybe save some money for a car so they can get out of town next time.



Why would they build a city on a swamp below sea level anyway?

Unfortunately you are too ignorant to understand the context of the shots.  Most of the shots fired are done to get the attention of the rescuers that routinely bypass those in need...not to harm them.  Kind of like warning shots...only these are signal shots.


You are the type of dumbass that wouldn't understand the purpose of wildfire firefighters setting a back fire.


Perhaps you should think a little bit more before you post.  How about a 24 hour delay before you post something that comes into your teeny little head.

Regardless of the color of your skin, it doesn't get much lower in the evolutionary chain than looting TV sets out of stores when the owner's been chased away by the worst natural disaster ever to hit your town...and frankly, I believe there are plenty of scum actually sabotaging rescue efforts in the hurricane region.  Shame on those idiots...they don't deserve your defense.  I'm all for helping those who are truly in need, but I have no sympathy for those who are obviously taking advantage of the situation.  I'm also having a hard time finding a plausible defense for those shooting at and harrassing rescuers.


Obviously we should feel for those who are suffering as a result of this tragedy, but it's becoming more apparent that there are criminals and thugs taking advantage of the situation and doing what comes naturally.  For those folks, it's just a shame they weren't the ones swept away.

I agree that those who are causing the problem are 100% thugs! They should be caught and hung in my eyes.  My point is that you shouldnt bring color into this.  If this would have happend in a poor white area do you really think the results wouldnt be the same! 


I also dont understand why you think this is funny.  There is nothing funny about whats happening there.  People are dieing because of these actions!  Man that is not funny!
