Been wondering why people didn't leave NO on foot?

The answer is shocking. The refugees were trapped in their sinking city by police from the surrounding communities. Why? So those communities "assets" would be protected from the crazed refugee marauders. Gretna sheriffs blocked more than 800 refugees on Highway 90, firing their guns over the heads of the crowd to turn them back.
In an interview with UPI, Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson confirmed that his department shut down the bridge to pedestrians: "If we had opened the bridge, our city would have looked like New Orleans does now: looted, burned and pillaged."

Was race possibly a factor? YA THINK??

And has anyone thought to compare the network TV coverage of 9/11 with the coverage of Katrina? There was very little standard programming for weeks after 9/11, and yet now in the face of a far deadlier, costlier, and more far-reaching catastrophe, the boob toob was business as usual after about three days. Gee.. I wonder why that would be.
