New Orleans Police Chief -Exaggerated Katrina Crime - no kidding
NO Police Chief Compass now says he unnecessarily
heightened fears during Katrina w/unsubstantiated reports
of widespread crime.
No duh idiot.
Rape, rape of his own daughter maybe, burglary,
attacks, crying and wailing on tv about how horrible
it was all around NO and in the Dome, and how no one
was sending help (aka Bush wasn't sending in the
Marines ASAP).....and, well, now, he says, yeah, I
kind of, sort of, exaggerated.
That's what you did.
In our one year return to NO, we find they elected the
same man who screwed up as Mayor to fix the City, which
was a very broken City to begin with, and has been for years.
They have a police chief who lied over & over again on tv to
hype himself, bash Bush, and beg for criticism about recovery
He went on Oprah and laid down a bombshell on the NO
disaster, feeding what Oprah wanted to hear, and it turns out
a lot of it was a lie, bologna, not sustantiated, and he knew
it to be unverified in any way, yet he said it. Over & over.
Like so much of what supposedly happend in New Orleans for a
few days - exaggerated, overdone, and some of it downright
false. Never mind though, the legend and lore is laid down -
poor black people were left to die.
Never mind more white people died in NO during Katrina, the
Coast Guard made record number of saves for days, FEMA
mistakes and all was set up in record numbers over several
states for the Katrina eye - which missed NO, and billions,
with a huge B have been sent to the states and cities in
question. Local authorities are holding up more work than the
feds, they can't make decisions in NO and Louisiana to fix
NO is open for business, and has been for months. Did Oprah
show that part? The part where hundreds of thousands of
black people made it out safely, and securely, by following
the directions given out days ahead of the storm?
The Police Chief should be fired.
But, being NO, he'll probably get a promotion.
