Why didn’t some people evacuate New Orleans despite a massive hurricane and evacuation order? Apparently, so they could loot (also known as stealing.)
The pictures of wild, chaotic, out of control looting will undoubtedly cost hurricane and flood victims millions in private contributions. Not exactly a heart rendering scene in a heart rendering situation.
There have been plenty of stories mentioning experts predicting a cataclysmic scenario for New Orleans if levees broke from a hurricane. However, there have not been any stories saying what the government did to prevent this disaster. After September 11th, this should have been a high priority. Katrina has given the terrorists of blueprint of what happens when levees are hit. Katrina could have many waves in the future.
