Tradegy and Looters

The cataclysm that is now the coastal gulf south is unimaginable!

That said, looting is absolutely unacceptable. I am reminded of a time in the '60's when Los Angeles and other cites around the country were "burning" as a result of the race riots.

A couple of blocks in urban Chicago were torched. Mayor Daley went on live T.V. and radio--and it was headlined in newspapers--that he had instructed his police officers to "SHOOT TO KILL!"

The looting and burning stopped. IMMEDIATELY!! Chicago was not burned because Daley was tough, and everyone knew he'd do what he said he would.

Time to get serious in New Orleans, Biloxi, and other places. SHOOT THE BASTARDS and the looting will stop. Believe me. They may be moral cretins, but they are not so stupid as to risk death for what they can steal. Assured that they WILL die, it'll be all over, and the inadequate police protection will suddenly become sufficiently adequate that the police can do what they ought to be doing . . . saving lives of the deserving.
