8. This is the sort of repulsive shit that shouldn't be going on. My fears were right.
This is the sort of repulsive shit that shouldn't be going on. My fears were right.

** No visible Western relief aid presence.

** Relief workers obviously sticking to vehicles in accessible areas due to "security concerns"

** Emphasis on "looting" instead of scavenging.

** Emphasis on letting people "do their own thing" instead of organizing the survivors like Honore said.

** Then shooting at them when they attempt to scavenge for blankets, food, etc. Life of survivors not valued

** "looters" / scavengers percieved as a security threat.

** Bodies dumped haphazardly outside the morgue by people with no respect for the dead

** The fact that most people viewing these images will be repulsed by the way the
bodies were treated, and then say "oh well, it's a major disaster in a third world country,
be thankful they would never treat bodies like that here" and go back to eating their dinners.

** "Scientists focus on areas with high seismic standards while ignoring poorer regions, one expert says."

I guess I will be attacked now for being a negative nelly.
