This is conditioning, right before our very eyes.
IMO, TPTB are getting ready for a total police state, this is just more evidence.
Regardless of the outcome of this hurricane, all of these lives have been deemed worthless...why not just execute them all now
Katrina showed us what FEMA and those in control are really all about.

I don't think so.
I say get the ones that are awaiting trial out of there (innocent before proven guilty), the rest of them should be on their own and may god have mercy on their souls.

I understand that people on Rikers are not even convicted of crimes, they are waiting for a trial.
Remember the concept of the presumption of innocence.
In light of what occurred to the inmates in prisons in the Katrina disaster it is very strange they didn’t do anything for these prisoners on Rikers. This to me is another proof that elements of this whole Irene thing is questionable, and has spy-op written all over it.
We carefully reviewed Rikers Island, as we have done with the entire city, and no section [original emphasis] of Rikers Island facilities are in Zone A.
Rikers Island facilies are not in low-lying areas, it's not a coastal location and, like nearby small islands Roosevelt Island and City Island, it does not need to be evacuated. We focused on the areas where real dangers exist.
A full Corrections Department staff will remain on Rikers Island and the facility is a fully self-sustaining entity, prepared to operate and care for inmates in extended emergency conditions."
