A reminder that there is a difference between SHTF and TEOTWAWKI. Relevant to several threads and posters' plans

Indeed. Waaaay too many people think a SHTF event means arcade-style shooting. When order returns (and it will) a reckoning will be made, just as these police discovered.

Pretty small reckoning, considering the homicide rate at the New Orleans coroners office was running around 25 per cent on the recovered bodies until they were told to stop classifying them.

Yep. One of my favorite lines is that historically, no matter which one we're talking about, all shtf situations have one thing in common. Whether we're talking about Katrina, an ice storm, the LA riots, or even World War 2, they all share one common trait. They all ended.

And at that point, you're stuck with the aftermath of your actions; whether that aftermath is legal consequences, forever-alienated neighbors, or just having to face the guy in the mirror.

They should have gotten the same sentence as their victims.

I hope TEOTW doesn't mean arcade-style shooting either...

I hope so too, but given the statements of some of the people in this forum...

The people who enforce the law are never above the law. The people who make the law, or who pay the people to make the law, are frequently above it.

Ok - but what, according to the article was the "misconduct" in the Rodney King beating? Police didn't do anything I wouldn't have if A-hole came barreling through my community at 100mph all drunk and high.

Rodney deserved every wack he got.

I was hoping this was talking about those that seized guns illegally...

And don't forget those, "you loot, we shoot" signs in SEVERAL front yards. Seems like a good idea at the time but not a few years later in court.

Those guys?

Its as simple as "you do the crime you do the time!" The police are no better than you and I! Actually they should know better than to abuse their power of authority. Listen I'm pro police, I was an MP for 22 years. I see the police in my area and 1 in 5 are actually professionals. They have attitudes and the God syndrome. I blame a lot of it on their leadership.

Morally don't disagree with you, but legally the cops (we cops) aren't allowed to do that. Much like a rapist deserves a bullet in the forehead, you can't put one there legally after the fact.

Rodney King was definitely an A-hole and his actions put others in danger. But once he was in custody, that's over. As frustrating as that is at times, I actually prefer it that way.

Don't know the details of the NOLA case here, but to wonder why we aren't seeing the female cops who were looting in uniform arrested..?

Hurricane Katrina - Police Loot Video by Ðavid Michæl £ewis - Myspace Video


Caught on video filling a cart, but only got a short suspension for 'neglect of duty' for not stopping the other looters.
