Anyone on the streets is in immediate danger of being robbed & killed. 

Mebbe check out this LiveJournal being updated from New Orleans. Up high in a New Orleans building with only their internet access and an effing huge three-quarter of a million watt diesel generator to keep them company.

Security has become a major concern now, because the NOPD is ineffective and the looters terrorists are roaming the streets. Word is now that they're lighting buildings on fire, but I can't confirm that. Anyway, we have to run guard shifts and patrol and it limits our downtime.

It is a zoo out there though, make no mistake. It's the wild kingdom. It's Lord of the Flies. That doesn't mean there's murder on every street corner. But what it does mean is that the rule of law has collapsed, that there is no order, and that property rights cannot and are not being enforced. Anyone who is on the streets is in immediate danger of being robbed and killed. It's that bad.

New Orleans WebCam Here:


Flickr user dustin3000 uploaded two similar news photos;
each of a flood victim in New Orleans wading in chest high water with boxes and bags.

Caption 1 under the very dark skinned person:
"A young man walks through chest deep flood water after looting a grocery store in New Orleans"

Caption 2under the light skinned person:
"Two residents wade through chest-deep water after finding bread and soda from a local grocery store..."
