6. The way I heard it was that they supposedly dynamited a hole
Edited on Mon Sep-12-05 03:53 PM by Totally Committed
in the concrete wall part of the levy to allow the poorer parts of the city to flood, while the nicer homes and the businesses were saved far more, and this also gave the people with cars (read: not poor, not Black) more time to evacuate than if the levy had broken on the earthen part of the levy.

So, basically, they victimized the poor (read: Black) people by sacrificing them and their homes for the homes and businesses of the more affluent.

In light of the days-long lack of response, and the murders and the deaths and the crimes committed, and knowing that dynamiting is pretty intentional, one is left wondering what they hoped would happen to these people.

Seems to me, if you are going to intentioanlly flood a part of town to save another, you'd get as many people as you could out BEFORE you blow the levy... am I right?

Anyone got a link confirming this? I've only heard it spoken about.
