In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, looting, violence and other criminal activity became serious problems. With most of the attention of the authorities focused on rescue efforts, public security in New Orleans degraded quickly. By August 30, looting had spread throughout the city, often in broad daylight and in the presence of police officers.
"The looting is out of control. The French Quarter has been attacked," City Councilwoman Jackie Clarkson said. "We're using exhausted, scarce police to control looting when they should be used for search and rescue while we still have people on rooftops."
Incapacitated by the breakdown of transportation and communication, as well as overwhelmed numerically, police officers could do little to stop crime, and shopkeepers who remained behind were left to defend their property alone.
Looters included gangs of gunmen, and gunfire was heard in parts of the city. Along with violent, armed robbery of non-essential valuable goods, many incidents were of residents simply taking food, water, and other commodities from unstaffed grocery stores.
There were also reports of some police officers looting. Significant looting continued in areas of the city with few, if any permanent residents, such as the Lakeview, Gentilly, and the Midcity regions.
"Sniper fire" was also reported throughout the city, targeted at rescue helicopters, relief workers, and police officers.
Looting and "mayhem" was also hampering efforts to evacuate the Tulane Medical Center, as well. "If we do not have the federal presence in New Orleans tonight at dark, it will no longer be safe to be there, hospital or no hospital," Acadian Ambulance Services C.E.O. Richard Zuschlag told CNN on August 31. Several news sources reported instances of fighting, drug use, theft, rape, and murder in the Superdome and other refuge centers.
Do what a deputy sheriff friend of mine did: he taught his family(some as young as four years old)to shoot an SKS. He himself had an AR15A2; budgetary complaints(chronically sick toddler for four months)prevented arming said family with his choice of a rifle.
When word got out, that anybody menacing said family would shot at by everybody in the home; that ended both the death threats and menacing behaviours(Like people stopping a shouting obscenities from cars).
Like it or not, outlaws WILL kill/injure/take hostage children; this is to break the will of the family to resist.
Active Shooters - Final Solution
Since the killings in Connecticut, we have heard all manner of proposed solutions to these problems. Most of the solutions proposed smack of stupidity and cowardice...and a few other things. In this article I will state why I think these events occur, and how to best stop them.
I begin with the assumption that man is evil and selfish - and dark. If left in the wilds, to his own devices,to live as an animal, man becomes a predator with nothing to curtail the drives to eat, rest, and procreate...by force. It is only civilization, and with it, morality, or the sense of right and wrong, that elevates man from a self-serving animal, to the status of human being.
In our western civilization, right and wrong is defined in the book that has defined our culture from the first century - the Bible. If we remove the Bible, and its Author, from our society, we immediately lose the authority to define what is right and what is wrong. And in modern America's idiotic desire to "never offend anyone", we have sacrificed the definition of what is right and what is wrong, for some sense of approval by those who are wrong.
Americans do not care if they are called, but do not call them intolerant. God is who defines good and evil, and right and wrong. But Americans don't want to hear about that...it might offend someone.
The problem is that without the light of good that our biblical culture brings, there is nothing holding back the darkness. And when nothing holds that back, the forces of evil grow stronger, and you see them flex their muscles in Columbine, Aurora, and in Connecticut.
Want to stop that from happening again? Really stop it? Invite the light of good back, and the Source of that light and see how society changes.
Now that will not happen overnight, and it will never happen in the most left-leaning regions of
So what to do in the interim?
Why does the left hate self-defense?

A man in South Africa, Aldred Tissong, may face murder charges for shooting two armed men who broke into his house. According to news reports:
If the Director of Public Prosecutions found that neither Tissong nor his wife were in mortal danger, Tissong could be charged with murder.
“The best that the accused can do is to get himself a lawyer as soon as possible, so that he does not say something that can be used against him at a later stage.”
When two armed men break into an occupied home, they forfeit their right to leave alive, in my view. Government can’t expect law-abiding homeowners to be able to assess the intention of thugs and criminals who invade their homes. The invasion alone should be a right to shoot to kill. As the headline on the story says, he was trying to protect his family.
It’s pretty black-and-white, but the anti-gun zealots see only shades of gray, and they project their wimpish dislike of self-defense on everyone else:
Judy Bassingthwaighte, national director of Gun Free South Africa, said a firearm usually complicated matters even more.
“There’s also the emotional suffering that Tissong will be going through because he presumably took a life.
“It’s dangerous to own a firearm and we must ask ourselves if it’s worth it.”
Well, Mr. Tissong’s family is safe and alive. His only peril right now is from the state, which is not sure he should have been allowed to protect his hearth, home and family.
Actually one of the most legitimate forms of usage for guns is not violence but the threat of violence. In other words a large about of general non-violent people leads to protection for gun owners and everyone else. If many good men own guns they have little need of them, if few they always have need of them. Over all a larger part of the population owning guns means less death...
Your love of guns and racist hearts are an abomination to the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a sin to believe you can save yourself by killing.
Someone show that limey b*astard Piers Morgan this! Shut him up.
Kill yourself, you racist p*rick.
