Law enforcement efforts to contain the emergency left by Katrina slipped into chaos in parts of New Orleans Tuesday with some police officers and firefighters joining looters in picking stores clean.
At the Wal-Mart on Tchoupitoulas Street, an initial effort to hand out provisions to stranded citizens quickly disintegrated into mass looting. Authorities at the scene said bedlam erupted after the giveaway was announced over the radio.

Open season on looters!!!
The police got all the best stuff. Theyre crookeder than us, one man
* That's amazing.
The poor people are so hungry, thirsty and scared. That's why they're using their two arms to carry off television sets, as opposed to food and water. LOL.
That's insulting to animals everywhere.
Whatever happened to the old rule about looters being shot on sight?
That would be the definition of anarchy I would think.
It must be legal, she said. The police are here taking stuff, too.
(chuckle)...sorry! You're not a PETA spy are you? ;-)
To be expected when the message goes from 'looters shot on sight' to 'OK to loot clothes & groceries, but not TVs & jewelry'. This society had better find its moral footing fast, not to mention its b*lls.
Let this stand as a lesson to all lefty moonbats that this is precisely why we have the SECOND AMENDMENT....because the police can break the law too.
I would to be a honest LEO there right now.
You know it realy doesn't matter one way or another, waiting for 2-3 months for the power to come back on there will not be anything to come back to.
NOt in New Orleans, haven't you heard of how they were killing folks down there?
I mean on national t.v. they had a cop talking of killing some folks, and it wasn't an isolated thing.
If this account is accurate (police officers, in uniform, looting a store), I'm not sure that anarchy is a strong enough word, though I don't know what the mot juste would be.
One can only hope that the story was, ah, distorted by the folks who actuall were looting the store.
I'll bet all the XXL sizes were gone first. I have never seen more obese people in one place. A majority of the residents of NO could stand to skip every other meal.
Haley Barber over in Miss implied just that last night. I bet you will not the the rampant looting in Miss as you see in NO.
