If we've learned one thing from 9/11/01, it's that most americans prefer safety over liberty.

Hmmmmmmm...

Where did I miss english?

If it helps, I could add that we are talking about curfew for American citizens, with certain "super-citizens" specifically excluded from the restrictions.  Would that help make the link more palatable?

Or the explanation that the first post in the link, while out of line totally with grammar and useage standards, was made by a pissed off Libertarian via text message in a brief moment of inactivity amidst a sea of work?

That is disgusting and sad. It appears that the so-called leadership in your city has complete disdain for the constitution and no respect whatsoever for the citizens. Good luck in getting this remedied.

Probably stole the idea from Washington D.C.
IIRC they were (or still are) shutting down entire neighborhoods....
For the children, of course.

Gee, what a surprise.  The superintendent wouldn't be the other guy holding AR-15 in the picture with Nagin aiming his at his subordinate with his finger in the trigger guard, would it?  

If this is true, will the press pick it up?  How come they haven't already?

The people of New Orleans should have Major Negligent Nagin taken out of office for allowing criminals to persist to the point that he considers curfews for law abiding citizens the only answer.

Yeah, he seems to be seeing just how many rights he can violate.

I don't like the idea of them at all.

I like curfews like a hole in the head. (my head).

He is.


The local press does not seem to care.  (Curfew does not apply to them either.)

FUCKING BULLSHIT!  THROW NAGIN'S ASS IN PRISON!  Maybe that's one reason why so much of the press is left leaning, they feel that a left leaning government that fucks everyone over will spare them and even give them preferential treatment.

Curfews are imposed through legislation covering states of emergency.  As you may have noticed I am not from LA so I don't have them but someone with more time may look them up.

I am not opposed to them in principal since in a major emergency order needs to be restored.  However, imposing them for even a day longer than necessary is a definate problem and needs to be rectified.

Removing the ability to use them isn't the correct answer.  Removing the bonehead who doesn't know how or isn't inclined to use them correctly is.

Here is ours.

EMERGENCY POWERS OF GOVERNOR (EXCERPT)
Act 302 of 1945


10.31 Proclamation of state of emergency; promulgation of orders, rules, and regulations; seizure of firearms, ammunition, or other weapons.

Sec. 1.

(1) During times of great public crisis, disaster, rioting, catastrophe, or similar public emergency within the state, or reasonable apprehension of immediate danger of a public emergency of that kind, when public safety is imperiled, either upon application of the mayor of a city, sheriff of a county, or the commissioner of the Michigan state police or upon his or her own volition, the governor may proclaim a state of emergency and designate the area involved. After making the proclamation or declaration, the governor may promulgate reasonable orders, rules, and regulations as he or she considers necessary to protect life and property or to bring the emergency situation within the affected area under control. Those orders, rules, and regulations may include, but are not limited to, providing for the control of traffic, including public and private transportation, within the area or any section of the area; designation of specific zones within the area in which occupancy and use of buildings and ingress and egress of persons and vehicles may be prohibited or regulated; control of places of amusement and assembly and of persons on public streets and thoroughfares; establishment of a curfew; control of the sale, transportation, and use of alcoholic beverages and liquors; and control of the storage, use, and transportation of explosives or inflammable materials or liquids deemed to be dangerous to public safety.

(2) The orders, rules, and regulations promulgated under subsection (1) are effective from the date and in the manner prescribed in the orders, rules, and regulations and shall be made public as provided in the orders, rules, and regulations. The orders, rules, and regulations may be amended, modified, or rescinded, in the manner in which they were promulgated, from time to time by the governor during the pendency of the emergency, but shall cease to be in effect upon declaration by the governor that the emergency no longer exists.

(3) Subsection (1) does not authorize the seizure, taking, or confiscation of lawfully possessed firearms, ammunition, or other weapons.
