17. that isn't new orleans
before linking to a story it's always well to actually read it

that occurred in kenner, louisiana (jefferson parish)

not in new orleans

looting is and should be a felony offense in any case, people who take advantage of natural disaster to enrich themselves should all be shot on sight as far as i'm concerned

as far as the bush advisor, it sounds like felony shoplifting to me (same as winona ryder) because of the amount of the fraud, but i would never believe that any shoplifting/refund fraud should get the same jail time as LOOTING
