Do as we say, not as we do ?

'Times-Picayune' Announces New Home--in Houma--and Reports Looting by Cops and Firemen

I really don't know what to say about this story. It's shameful.

While other 1st responders were dealing with the death, destruction, and rescue efforts, these cops were probably using their patrol cars to carry off their stolen loot.

And even if it's just a tiny fraction of the total police force, it's sick. Plus it gives folks who probably don't need much of an excuse a reason to join in.

Like the woman quoted at the end of the article said, "It must be legal," she said. "The police are here taking stuff, too."

And to think, some were worried that there would be a problem [again] at the Superdome with violence and theft. I guess the police and the National Guard shouldn't have been looking solely at "civillians" breaking the law.
