It's called Dereliction of Duty and cops can be charged with it, too. It's called "reasonble standard of care" and "negligence". One of which
the government, and thus its organs, owes you and the other is the crime they are charged with when they fail to provide it.
they had a certian amount of time, but keep in mind the numbers they would have to evaccuate under the little help they had. think about the
massive amount of people outside that you tell "yea well its too late go home because we cant evvacuate anymore of you in time,
Hello Superdome. "Sorry, that was the last bus to leave. The rest of you will have to take shelter in the Superdome, WHERE I WILL BE JOINING YOU,
where we have food, water and medical personnel
. Not to mention Family Services..."
Are you reading what I post?
its getting too bad out now" think about how angry they would be at the moment you said that.
now say you move them
to the bunker (which in fact was the superdome) where do you plan to get this sudden amount of large supplies when the stores have locked up and left?
Hello playbook. Do you know what Forward Planning is? How many days warning do you have when a Hurricane flattens Cuba?
Mayor: "Hmm, what are the possibilities that it might hit us?"
Lackey: "I don't know, boss. Let me call the storm centre."
Mayor: "What are our precautions?"
Lackey: "Let me call the police chief, the fire chief and the CMO and check the playbook and get back to you."
What it appears happened:
Mayor: "Is my private jet fuelled and ready to go?"
no one is coming in to give them to you.
Why haven't you already got them?
and you cant get them from 99% of the stores. you definately dont have the supplies now.
So the US has no compulsory requisition policy?
after that i find a pretty similar story to what actually happened, minus the people they evaccuated. and those that werent evaccuated would
try to file some sort of lawsuit because some were evaccuated while others had to stay, they would want to know why they werent all
I realise Americans are fundamentally stupid and ungrateful people, but some of them might be thankful you saved and LOOKED AFTER them.
if they knew everyone couldnt get out in time why risk lives by bringing them all out there when they could be relatively safe in their home
with supplies they might have already had.
But they weren't relatively safe in their homes, were they?
And, in case you haven't noticed, not all US residents own homes, let alone live in one.
And every evacuation guide tells you what to carry. So you give a list of what people should bring to the Superdome. Like toilet paper, tinned milk,
bottled water and biscuits. and a couple of blankets if you can.
Then you have the Fire Departemnt bring in its barbecues and emergency lighting and you lighten the load a little for those sheltering. Provide a few
acoustic guitars and soon you'll have choruses of Kum-by-ah distracting the people from the howling winds outside.
If you live in a Hurricane zone why does the city not a have an emergency management department of its own? One whose job it is to co-ordinate this
kind of stuff?
All I saw was blame being shifted around after the horse had bolted.
Four people were involved here, everybody, anybody, somebody and nobody.
Everybody was responsible, anybody could have taken responsibility, if somebody had taken responsibility nobody would have had to resign.
But NOBODY took responsibility.
