More chilling news about looters in New Orleans
courtesy of WDSU's live broadcast.
Baptist Memorial Hospital in New Orleans has been taken over by armed looters.
They are apparently looting the hospital supplies.
The news is reporting several other instances of gang violence writ large.
Disgusting. Things like this are EXACTLY why I support the right of private citizens to bear arms. Relying upon the government to protect you from criminals in times of emergency is a fool's game.
UPDATE:WDSU is now waffling a bit, stating that it is based on a few emails from within New Orleans and has not been confirmed by officials. I'll keep an eye on this and update as necessary.
