Superdome Horror

The situation in the Louisiana Superdome is getting, well, horrifying: A 2-year-old girl slept in a pool of urine. Crack vials littered a restroom. Blood stained the walls next to vending machines smashed by teenagers. [...] At least two people, including a child, have been raped. At least three people have died, including one man who jumped 50 feet to his death, saying he had nothing left to live for. And there is no escape. One man tried to escape Wednesday by leaping a barricade and racing toward the streets. The man was desperate, National Guard Sgt. Caleb Wells said. Everything he was able to bring to the Superdome had been stolen. His house had probably been destroyed, his relatives killed. "We had to chase him down," Wells said. "He said he just wanted to get out, to go somewhere. We took him to the terrace and said: 'Look.' "Below, floodwaters were continuing to rise, submerging cars."He didn't realize how bad things are out there," Wells said. "He just broke down. He started bawling. We took him back inside." Please go here and Donate.

Who was this guy that said all of this?? You know, the ironic part is that I am hearing so many stories about this superdome horror. Alot which do not make any sense at all. Which tells me there are a few people out there exploiting the situation. Feed a juicy gossip chain of BS, that they know poeple will feed into. And the world always seems to be quick to believe stories about the black race. 20 white Brits tell of how they heard stories of rape and murder and lil girls getting thier heads cut off. The funny part about this is, the last week I have kept my eyes glued to the TV screen. I have not seen one white.Now all of the sudden I am seeing stories from atleast 100 of them. One story even tells of how he had to smuggled out of town on a vegetable truck,LOL, a vegetable truck?? What was vegetable truck doing riding through a Hurricane struck region?? Let me guess....taking vegetables to a grocery store somewhere in southern new orleans, where the water was 20 feet deep in some places. And another thing that I saw to be BS about alot of these stories. They speak of wild rampant animals doing whatever they please whil in the dome for those days. Now, water has been scarce and food to a brae minimum. People were said to be starving and dehydrated. Now without water, and in a city where the heat is in the mid 90's. Which means it was in the upper 90's to early 100's inside the dome. And they say that had no water, which I do believe. The point is, from the stories that I am hearing ,these so called animals inside the dome must have had alot of energy do be doing all this damage. Days without water and food, and they have the energy to go around beating people night and day?? Think about all that.
