Governor Says In Effect "Shoot The Bastards" : NOLA Indymedia

Governor Says In Effect "Shoot The Bastards" : NOLA Indymedia
by Captain America Friday, Sep. 02, 2005 at 6:49 AM

"They have M-16s and they're locked and loaded," Governor Kathleen Blanco said of 300 National Guard troops who landed in New Orleans fresh from duty in Iraq. "These troops know how to shoot and kill, and they are more than willing to do so, and I expect they will." As desperate people without food or water scavenge to feed their families, the clueless governor issues a threat.

The Army Corps of Engineers did a computer simulation study last year of the effect of a category 3 hurricane, with winds of 130 MPH, on New Orleans.

It showed a similar level of deaths, devastation and levee breaches. So, officials knew what was looming, sooner or later.

Katrina hit land as a category 4, with 140 MPH winds.

When you don't have any WATER or food, for 3 days, you get desperate. You simply must have safe drinking water. Since your government has failed to take any meaningful action towards your particular situation, you scavenge to feed and hydrate your family.

You are now a "looter". A criminal. Add that to your woes.

And the governor wants you shot on sight, should you scavenge again, by troops fresh back from Iraq, troops who, in the governors own words, "know how to shoot and kill, and they are more than willing to do so, and I expect they will."

Who elected this bitch? Doe she play with a full deck?

There are military posts and bases all around. Where are the military MRE's (Meals Ready To Eat) warehoused and why were they not shipped to the effected areas within 24 hours?

We wage war much better than we save our citizens lives.
