The Crescent City is under martial law; thousands of National Guard who could be helping are fighting in Iraq
With an estimated 80% of the city under water the Third World population of New Orleans has lived up to expectation, greeting the passing of Hurricane Katrina with a wave of looting across the city which police officials have declared "out of control." Martial law -- which is only declared in times of war and emergency when the government is unable to maintain order -- was declared. Under martial law, the rights of civilians are suspended and National Guard is used to help restore order. The looting is also hampering life-rescue efforts elsewhere in the devastated area. "The looting is out of control. The French Quarter has been attacked," 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." According to WWLTV, "Some six-thousand National Guard personnel from Louisiana and Mississippi who would otherwise be available to help deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina are in Iraq."
New Orleans had expected the looting behavior, with the state passing a tough new law mandating three years in prison for looters in the runup to the hurricane.
According to Matt Drudge, at one grocery store Blacks smashed open ATMs, sacked the pharmacy, and ran off with merchandise while leaving the premises in shambles. Another report details the plundering of a pharmacy, with a Black screaming "86! 86!" (local Ebonics for "police") when over-extended cops arrived. Another shouted "that's EVERYBODY'S store" as he fled with stolen clothes. One person compared the situation to other Third World sites: "It's downtown Baghdad. It's insane...I thought this was a sophisticated city. I guess not."
A graphic video showing Blacks sacking a supermarket has shocked the nation.
Meanwhile, the hordes of Black refugees sheltered in the city's football stadium have reportedly reduced the inside of the Superdome to a wreck. 500 National Guardsmen under the command of a General had been forced to pat down at least 10,000 Blacks for weapons and drugs as they entered. According to an unconfirmed report received by National Vanguard, "Black street gangs inside the New Orleans Superdome are making life miserable for others and National Guard units are being [forced] inside the Superdome to keep Blacks from preying on other Blacks." Sadly, reports also indicate that some inside the Superdome may be White tourists stranded by the storm. New Orleans City Council President Oliver Thomas said, “People are leaving the Superdome to go to Canal Street to loot. Some people broke into drug stores and stole the drugs off the shelves. It is looting times five. I'm telling you, it's like Sodom and Gomorrah.”
News of the looting and martial law declaration hit the markets mid-morning, leading to serious concern, with the Dow immediately losing support at 10,400 and the blue chip index down a full 88 points since the open. The insurance cost of the storm alone is expected to be around $26 billion, assuring steep insurance premium hikes for White Middle Americans. Oil prices are also expected to surge, already hitting $70.85 a barrel, a record.
