While we are busy wondering why black rappers love the gangsterism that is doing more harm than good to the public image and the reputation of African-Americans, many other blacks were also busy looting shops and homes in New Orleans instead of helping their fellow humans as they were suffering and dying in the catastrophe of hurricane Katrina. And I saw one of them even shamelessly laughing when the CNN reporter was telling him that looting was wrong. I mean this gangling black guy with dreadlocks was not even feeling any guilt as he was stealing from those who were victims of the worst hurricane that the people of New Orleans have ever seen. It was like hell broke loose and the demons descended on New Orleans in the mayhem of the horrific hurricane Katrina. But, governor Kathleen Blanco of Louisiana has now wiped the smiles off the ugly faces of the looters as she ordered that looters should be shot.

Shoot-and-kill order in New Orleans

Baton Rouge, Reuters/uni, pti:

Former presidents Clinton and Bush Sr are going to lead a campaign to raise funds for relief and rehabilitation of hurricane victims.

Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco has warned rioters and looters in New Orleans that National Guard troops are under her orders to “shoot and kill” to end the rampant violence in the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Announcing the arrival of 300 Arkansas National Guard troops in New Orleans fresh from service in Iraq on Thursday, Ms Blanco said, “these troops are battle-tested. They have M-16s and are locked and loaded.”

“These troops know how to shoot and kill and I expect they will,” she said.

Before the troops headed toward the region, a mighty explosion rattled the outskirts of New Orleans and the ruined city’s frayed nerves on Friday.

US Rep Charlie Melancon, a Democrat, said 100 people in his district southeast of New Orleans have died as a by-product of the violence that has gripped the city after Katrina slammed into the region on Monday, causing massive flooding.

Those who died, Melancon said, had been waiting at a warehouse pier along the Mississippi River in Chalmette, Louisiana, to be picked up for evacuation. They had received little food and no water since Monday or Tuesday.

“They were afraid they would have to go through New Orleans (to deliver the supplies),” Melancon said.

Some people are not ashamed, neither do they have human feelings. Why should someone take advantage of the misfortunes of others? This is a very odd world. If shooting them will deter the looters, then so be it.

What happened was terrible. Many criminals in New Orleans saw the opportunity to rob and rape in the chaos of the catastrophe of hurricane Katrina. But, we thank God that the situation is under control as at present.
