Lol, so you sit there and bitch about the government not coming soon enough then go on to say they told you to stay there. Duh, maybe you should not rely on the government anymore.
Humans have lost touch with their survival instincs and have become fat, lazy, greedy slobs. You have 5 days to get away from a hurrican, go buy a $10.00 tent at walmart and start walking north or inland, dont listen to the governement when they tell you everything is fine, you will be safe with us, thats the time to take your life in your own hands.

About the looting.....I agree that there were some that just looted for the heck of it. But why are you just pointing out the ones that did it in NO? What about Hurricane Andrew of '92. (this is the one that hit Miami). I remember watching the news and seeing all the people looting there as well.

The looting was THE LEAST OF IT! They were shooting at helicopters trying to pick up near dead patients at the hospitals. Was that happening in Miami?
[On August 28, the Louisiana National Guard delivered three truckloads of water and seven truckloads of MREs (meals ready to eat), enough to supply 15,000 people for three days. There was no water purification equipment on site, no chemical toilets, no antibiotics and no anti-diarrheals stored for a crisis. There were no designated medical staff at work in the evacuation center. There was no established sick bay within the Superdome, and there were very few cots available that hadn't been brought in by evacuees. The mayor of New Orleans had, in fact, stated that as a "refuge of last resort," only limited food, water, and supplies would be provided. Residents who evacuated to the Superdome were warned to bring their own supplies.
When the flooding began on August 30, the Superdome began to slowly fill with water, though it remained confined to the field level. Later that day, Governor Blanco ordered New Orleans completely evacuated. On August 31, it was announced that the Superdome refugees would move to the Reliant Astrodome in Houston, Texas. With no power and no water, sanitary conditions within the Superdome had rapidly deteriorated. As of August 31, there had been three deaths in the Superdome: two elderly medical patients and a man who is believed to have committed suicide by
So there were 20,000 people in the Superdome.
Three died, but lets up that to twenty.
1/1000 deaths at the superdome.
500% less than those outside of the superdome and 1000% less than Greensburg Kansas.
Or 0.001% died in the Superdome.
