A lot of people still don't know where to evacuate. A lot of people were so scared of looting that they kept their presence hidden and are just now being discovered.

Correct me if I'm wrong. There are approx 500,000 people still left in New Orleans that still haven't been evacuated.

I never thought i would have to say this and this isnt a racist comment, but why is it when you look at the tv at night all you see is african americans commiting looting, i have not seen that many white people on t.v commiting crimes, actually ive seen more white people trying to help one another than steal tv, shoes and things they dont need? what the hell do you need a t.v for with no house or power to watch it? and whats the deal with them shooting at the police, there there to help you dur, i know that there is the biggest disaster in history but really raping a little girl and killing a little boy, that just goes to show you there mentalaty down there, im far from racist but im tired of saying im sorry for the obivoius facts that are presented to me !

And by the way, why all of a sudden is it gangs doing all the looting and violance? Just curious. Did you hear that on TV?
I couldn't agree more...so somebody tell me please how does a soldier tell the difference between a "looter" and a frightened, starving desperate soul? And by the way hasn't anyone noticed the captions that denote black people with food, diapers and the like leaving a store described as looters and white people as having scavenged or found the same supplies in abandoned stores. Where are those standing up and protesting the implicit bigotry of those captions? # protecting consumer goods, protect people damnit. That's the pisser about the hard right conservative republican stance of the oh so much moral than thou's, when push comes to shove, they don't give a damn about real people but don't you dare touch their hummer. What would Jesus be doing...waste deep in # filled water giving the shirt off his back regardless of their skin color or economic status of the recipent and he wouldn't be screaming kill em.
