From Real Time with Bill Maher October 14 2005:
"FORMER U.S. SENATOR MAX CLELAND: Yeah. [laughter] Hazardous duty. But I think New Orleans has a real challenge on its hands, not just in recovering from the disaster, the natural disaster, but what has happened to the police department there and what has happened in the wake of lawlessness breaking out after the hurricane came through. I understand that about half of the New Orleans Police Department evaporated as the hurricane came through; that about 25% of that police department went on a rampage and looting.

What of the men on the bridge that were shot dead? There were a lot of stories floating around. Check out the Rude Pundit essays at his blog or read the latest New Yorker articles on the breakdown of the NOPD during and after Katrina. I think Eddie Compass, former NOPD chief, is a real villain, cruising around in his stolen Caddy from Sewell Cadillac and doing absolutely nothing!
Very interesting, ie. the bodies that turned up. I've wondered why no more info has surfaced on those Corp engineers who were "mistakenly" shot as they were investigating the failed levee.Post a Comment
Also reports on former IDF serving as private security with complete autonomy and FEMA authority, on the ground in NOLA. So much stinks here literally!
