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.

Lied.

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
efforts.

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
things faster.

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?

Not really.

The Police Chief should be fired.
But, being NO, he'll probably get a promotion.

It should be about time for the drive-by media to start showing footage again. I wonder which democrat will bring it up first... :scratch:

Why don't you all go down there and have a look at the place and offer your assistance. Some things are too tragic to become mere policital or racial issues. It's been done and over done. No sense in having an argument about how may white people died versus ho wmany black, or which poitical party did this or that. Think of the human factor, that at this time is more important.

what is this new thing of people posting rumor as fact and not so surprisingly without articles or back up sources? this is like fifth topic in 2 days do that. and like the 3rd one in a month from the thread starter. its kind of annoying. i have mentioned that in the other topics i saw in the past few days to do that, but they just keep coming.

Sadly, his recent comments, confessions, will receive
1/1,000th of the coverage his Katrina Over The Top/
Largely Made Up Comments received.

From that point on, we've seen the 'news' media jump
on all kinds of stories over & over, and find out later
on they didn't report the truth, or the whole truth, or
heck, just made some things up. We have seen in
Lebanon again these past few weeks, how far too many
'outrageous' stories were simply false or made up or
exaggerated. The hysteria and made up stories are
what annoyed me then, and now.


I am always amazed when we were told by our always
truthful media - be prepared for 50,000 dead - what was
it? A little over 1,000 over multiple states, with the eye
of the storm hitting Mississippi, not New Orleans. Amazing
outcome - millions got out, were helped out, and they
were of every color and background. The rescue teams
from the feds to the local did a great job in almost every
instance. Only to be part of the groups attacked for
not helping certain people by celebrities.

Hey, Celine - let them go and touch your stuff.


We had nearly 1,000 people die in California in three weeks
due to obscene heat, even with message after message of
free cooling centers, call numbers for help, check on friends
and neighbors, etc. Most of them were older people. They
weren't in third world conditions, they weren't stupid, they
didn't get help, or in many cases, didn't want it. Figured
they could deal with 105 degree heat for 2 weeks. Sadly,
some couldn't. Do we blame the govt.?

Fact is that govt. can never help every single person
who needs or wants it.


Yeah, I know FEMA made a lot of mistakes. Considering how
big this was - 5 or 8 states, tens of millions of people, does
anyone think it could go off w/o big mistakes? Of course not.
We should investigate and get made at bad mistakes and errors.
But, the truth is a lot of people did great work, risked their lives
for weeks, and were given no credit for it. From the Coast Guard
to local police and fire to rescue teams and local and county and
state and fed. govt. people, - most did a fantastic job in a terrible
situation. Will anyone ever cover that? No.

Most of the police did good work, and always do. This police chief
was wrong to say what he did at the time, he's wrong to not be
taken to task for what he's saying now. New Orleans major problems
began and ended with their own elected officials, and still do.

Will this be reported breathlessly by our 'one year anniversary'
endless reports on Katrina and New Orleans.

As it appears Katrina only hit New Orleans, and not the
other 5 or 6 states and thousands of cities in the Gulf area.
From coverage anyway.


I doubt the police chiefs lies and rumors will get coverage
now. Not interesting enough.

1,400 people died in California in the recent heatwave.
A lot more than usual. 2 weeks of 105 heat. Most were
seniors, lower income, and often minority. Did Arnold
kill them? Did the state fail? Did the feds fail? Did FEMA
fail? That number almost equals what happened in New
Orleans in 2 weeks last year.



What was that, nearly 25,000 died in Europe during heatwaves
a few years ago, while the govt.'s were mostly on official
vacation. Over 15,000 in France alone. Chirac was on holiday.
Where's the CNN special on that?
