City Security
The city is starting to feel more secure now. Much larger military and Homeland Security presence and many fewer civilians left. Of course with this added security comes additional dangers like hyper-suspicious, armed authorities. If you watch the cam or walk the streets, you see that almost every civilian is approached, evaluated for threat potential, then either patted down or left alone. The disconcerting thing is that these authorities always have their guns at the ready and look like they're enjoying intimidating the people. Two of us have already had guns aimed at us by police -- Brian by the Federal Cops guarding the Boggs Federal building while we were waiting for the resupply, and me when we were delivering the router to City Hall.

Don't get me wrong, some guys are more professional than others. You can tell the ones who took the job because they wanted to bullies and who took the job to protect and serve. That's one thing a catastrophic situation does -- it sifts people's true personalities out.

Nevertheless, aside from the arson, I think that generally it's much safer today than yesterday.

First, people bitched because they weren't there. Now they are bitching because they ARE there. How long until we hear people bitching about an exit strategy?

I have, and I won't say what conclusions I've drawn about the post itself.




The Federal Police are your friend

Either we want order restored or we don't.

Let's not complain about the men trying to quell the disorder and mayhem...unless they themselves contribute to it.

The bottom line!

Actually, other than being a little whiny once or twice, the writer doesn’t strike me as being that critical of the LEO’s (not that I’d care if he was).

Getting NOLA under control is going to take more than touchy-feely social workers and Wal-Mart greeters.

I'd guess later this morning, on the Sunday morning talk shows.
