13. I saw this last night
(that's night here in Europe...):

This is one reason I don't believe in incompetence theory. Granted, a lot of people in decision-making positions *were* incompetent or unwilling to make the decisions they are paid to make. But there must also have been specific orders about not letting people leave N.O.

And what about that sherriff who TOOK WATER AND FOOD AWAY from the group of survivors?! What the FUCK was up with that? And they called a copter to come down and break apart their makeshift cots and loos and whatever they scrambled together. They were forcing people to disperse right as people were coming together and helping each other survive. Come on! Not every uniformed person is evil. They had to have orders. They treated these folks like inmates during a mutiny, not like survivors.
