Re: The New Orleans Police State
What else consitutes New Orlean's as a police state?
Certainly, it cannot only be one incident of police brutality.
And, obviously this isn't the only story. Where are the others?
On another note, there were many cases of reported rapes of very young teenagers (13/14), as stated by a social worker who was intereviewed on television the other night.
Engineers studying the levee believe that the water didn't breach the 17th street, but that the force of the storm surge uprooted it from the bottom.
It still blows my mind that it was only built to withstand a Category 3. I mean, raising the bar two more notches wouldn't be a monumental task, would it? It's not like the scale goes from 1 to 100.
Anyway, when Betsy hit NO, wasn't she a Category 3 or more?
And, if so, it just makes no sense to rebuild the levee to withstand the same strength or even less if she was a four.
Sorry, I'm wandering here.
Seems all the distraction lately has taken away from the faces of the 2,000 plus missing children after the storm.
Isn't that the way it goes.
