Reports are coming in that the Superdome evacuation had to be stopped because looters are shooting at the rescue helicopters.
New Orleans has always had a terrible crime problem. It’s gotten marginally better over the last five years, but all semblance of law and order has completely broken down now. The only people left in the city, give or take a few relief workers and toughing-it-out property owners, are the most ruthless of the predators and the weakest of prey.
This isn’t street crime any more. This is barbarism. Enough playing nice. Send in the troops, with orders to shoot looters on sight. This has to end. Today.
