What makes me mad about the Katrina situation is that the cops are just making the situation worse. The deputy at the Shell station is just slowing down people trying to get out. The "New Orleans Police Sgt. Kevin Guillot, Deputy Mike Thommes and Deputy Donald Rindal, both from the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department in St. Paul, Minnesota" are wasting time stealing people's property.
