Sobering Reading regarding hurricane

This Hurricane Blog is sobering reading. It is the most updated thing I've seen. Its a news channel blog and collects information. Example:

11:40 - (AP) Roving bands of looters are breaking into stores in Carrollton area to get food and supplies. They've also stolen guns and armed themselves.

I don't remember if it was Monday or Tuesday...the days are running together, but I saw a TV report that showed people looting within the first hours of the storm passing over New Orleans. It both saddens and sickens me to see people doing this. I could understand stealing food or water or blankets, but these assholes were stealing TVs, DVDs, beer, and pretty much anything of value that wasn't nailed down.

Looters should be tasered and hogtied to lamp posts until the water goes down and they can be incarcerated. I wonder if the majority of the looters are among the 25% of the population that are below poverty level, or if they are simply opportunistic bastards. Howard is right though, what the f$@# good are dvds, tvs, etc. when there is no power? Food is going to go bad anyways by the time everthing gets back to normal.

The guns thing really makes me worry, ever seen "Escape from New York?", perhaps soon they will make a movie "Escape from The Big Easy". Sad.

It reads like one of Dan's apocalyptic novels. :-(

But this time it isn't just a story.
