Storm Survivors Told To 'Expose Themselves' Tuesday September 6, 03:28 PM


A group of female hurricane survivors were told to show their breasts if they wanted to be rescued, a British holidaymaker has revealed.Ged Scott watched as American rescuers turned their boat around and sped off when the the women refused.

The account was just another example of the horror stories emerging from the hurricane disaster zone.

Mr Scott, 36, of Liverpool, was with his wife and seven-year-old daughter in the Ramada Hotel when the flood waters started rising.

"At one
point, there were a load of girls on the roof of the hotel saying 'Can you help us?' and the policemen said 'Show us what you've got' and made signs for them to lift their T-shirts," he told the Liverpool Evening Echo.

"When the girls refused, they said `Fine' and motored off down the road in their boat."

At one point he had to wade through filthy water to barricade the hotel doors against looters.

He said the experience made him want to vomit.

Mr Scott also slated the rescue operation, saying police were more interested in taking snapshots of the devastation rather than rescuing the victims.

"I could not have a lower opinion of the authorities, from the police officers on the street right up to George Bush," he said.

"I couldn't describe how bad the authorities were. Just little things like taking photographs of us, as we are standing on the roof waving for help, for their own little snapshot albums"

He added: "The American people saved us. I wish I could say the same for the American authorities."

Mike Brocken, of Chester, said he feared his wife Christine and 18-year-old daughter Stephanie would be raped when they went into the Louisiana Superdome.

The family were also racially abused by other refugees in the stadium.

Mr Brocken, a BBC Radio Merseyside presenter and music lecturer, told the station: "We were going to go inside the Superdome.

"I approached two members of the National Guard and they said to stay outside because they knew it was hell in there.

"One female office basically said under no circumstances take the women in there, because she knew what it was like.

"We were so frightened and we stayed alongside the National Guard for some kind of protection.

"It was at that stage that they started to take us under their wing and eventually managed to get us into the basketball stadium."

He added: "Everyone talks about the National Guard in rather derogatory ways historically, but I've got to say that, but for them, and one man in particular, I may well have lost my family."

No words can describe how disgusted I am right now.

Sometimes we let the preoccupations of this cruel world get the best of us and we lose track of the things that really matter.

If you don't risk anything, you risk even more.

When Bush said he wanted to "shock and awe" the enemy, I didn't realize the American people were the enemy...fuck man I'm shocked and awed right now (definitely not in a good way)

Maybe the cops should've told the girls they'd get free beads? I wouldn't flash anyone if I didn't know about the beads either.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

"not a single tourist caught in the tsunami was mugged. Now with all this happening in the United States we can easily see where the civilized part of the world's population is." sajeewa Chinthaka, a 36 year old Sri Lankan man, on the looting and crime in new orleans after the hurricane.

It does say something about moral standards some people have, now doesn't it?

Funny, I didn't know that seeing the future was possible, as we are currently the 9th of September.

I'm floating in the sea of stars,
I'm drifting away from the shore
I will be lost in the dream when the dark days come
But I will make the time run backwards and
I'll make the stars shine again

showing tits in New Orleans is mandatory for anything. Breasts are the currency of New Orleans. No different than a cop refusing to rescue someone because they didnt give them 50 dollars.
