Interesting comment from one person witnessing (participating in?) the widespread looting in New Orleans-
“To be honest with you, people who are oppressed all their lives, man, it’s an opportunity to get back at society” (As a Floridian for the first 32 years of my life, I thought it was just a hurricane)
Why do I think the 20% who elected to stay behind and not evacuate are the ones most likely to behave badly? Nothing like a good ol’ natural disaster to pull a community together. Eventually I expect to hear/read some evangelical religious zealot(s) proclaim New Orleans is being punished for its sinful and wicked ways.
