Looting continues in New Orleans

09:19 AM CDT on Wednesday, August 31, 2005
Associated Press

Looting broke out in some New Orleans neighborhoods today, prompting authorities to send more than 70 additional officers and an armed personnel carrier into the city.

Police say one officer was shot in the head by a looter yesterday, but is expected to recover.

The Times-Picayune reports today that a Wal-Mart in the Lower Garden District was looted, and the entire gun collection was taken.

Terry Ebbert, New Orleans Homeland security chief, says there are gangs of armed men moving around the city. Also, the governor's office reports looters tried to break into Children's Hospital.

On New Orleans' Canal Street, dozens of looters ripped open the steel gates on clothing and jewelry stores and grabbed merchandise. In Biloxi, Mississippi, people picked through casino slot machines for coins and ransacked other businesses.

In some cases, the looting was in full view of police and National Guardsmen.

Maybe the posters in other threads won't be so skeptical about the attacks on LEOs. I guess now that AP reported it - it must be true.

The man who talked to his LEO daughter who was bring being sniped in the jewelry district wasn't enough for the apologists.
