"Escape from New Orleans"
    #4607757 - 09/01/05 12:57 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Rescuers: Boat operation suspended

Thousands still stranded in New Orleans

Thursday, September 1, 2005; Posted: 12:28 p.m. EDT (16:28 GMT)

Shots reported as Superdome evacuated (3:13)


(CNN) -- As police and National Guard troops struggled to restore order Thursday in New Orleans, emergency teams suspended boat rescue operations because conditions in the flooded city were too dangerous, rescuers said.


"The head of Acadian Ambulance Service, Richard Zuschlag, said Wednesday that a generator was stolen from his command center and an ambulance was tipped over as his workers tried to evacuate hospitals."

"The instructions to stand down came during a meeting with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. "

"Widespread looting and random gunfire have been reported across the city. Police told CNN that groups of armed men roamed the streets overnight."


CNN said it was too dangerous because of people being shot at while attempting to rescue people.

the title of this thread is funny because last night i had a dream that new orleans was quarantined and left to rot and that it turned into a venice style haven for crime. It was sort of like the same kind of city from escape from new york.

Thats what I keep seeing up the road when I am awake. I've mentioned that movie 20 times today to people. It's weird because I am traditionally a huge optimist. For me to say things like that.....

i wonder if it could ever come to that? i don't think it's very likely cuz if anyone actually stays there they'd probably eventually die from disease.

:rofl:

Racial stereotypes (black and white) are hilarious.

I have a weird view on race.  I will give anybody an equal chance to prove that they are a good person.  It doesn't matter what color their skin is.

BUT....I am not afraid to admit that there are a lot of problems in practically every black community in America (drugs, crime, low academic achievement, etc...).  Because of this, if I were to ever have a family, I would not want my children growing up in a black neighborhood or going to a predominately black school.  Conversely, I would not want my child to be in a white neighborhood that had drugs and violence.

I also think that a lot of the problems in the black community are from their own doing.  Black people are the ones dealing drugs and shooting people in their neighborhoods, not white people.  And, I am not going to be a guilty white liberal and kiss ass to black people just because they are black.

Black people don't need liberals kissing their asses or racists slagging them.  They can make it on their own and do everything that white people can....if only they would do it instead of playing the victim all of the time.

This disaster is a teacher. Try to see what hes showing you. Try to be open for the new information that comes from it. Learn from it, that nothing in this universe is forever, and less, if its human-made.

Although this is true, it would be a mistake to blame skin color. There are plenty of white communities in America that are no different. Culture, not skin color, is the key.

What about the thousands of people still trapped in their homes and in hospitals? How are NGs with itchy trigger fingers going to differentiate between "looters" and people just trying to get out of the city? :frown:
