Again ....they made it through the hurricane ..it was the FLOODING afterwards that caused the real problems ..Did anyone warn the residents that there
would be severe levy failures after the Hurricaine >?
What I hold the Gov accountable for is their lack of concern by waiting not just a few days after to come to their aid ..but SEVERAL DAYS >.And
turning people away in boats ,planes etc who were trying to get help to them .....and blocking roads where no one could get out during that flooding
....(There are numerous accounts of that happening ...I also saw this on TV on CNN I believe while it was happening ...Sheriffs parked in the middle
of the road saying GO BACK you cannot come here )>....I will see if I can find that video ...
Seriously do you really believe that was right to turn a blinds eye to anyone under those kinds or circumstances ?No matter whether they left or didnt
leave .>We all had to sit here and watch PEOPLE DIE ON AMERICAN TV ...for NO REASON ....Even one small helicopter dropping even a few gallons of water
out would have made me feel better about the whole thing ..
But no not even one helicopter drop ...nowhere ....
Sorry but no one deserved what those people went through ..
And no matter what .......I believe our GOV aided in alot of those people dieing in NO ..
For not dropping food and water down to those people in the streets.
Red tape or not ..that would have been the HUMANITARIAN thing to do .
