Troops find grisly scenes in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Troops scouring New Orleans for survivors and victims reported finding at least 40 mutilated bodies in the Convention Center refugee center.
Arkansas National Guardsman Mikel Brooks told the New Orleans Times Picayune many of the dead were elderly, or showed signs of trauma.
"There's another one in the freezer, a 7-year-old with her throat cut," he said.
As the searches became more organized since the Aug. 29 onslaught of Hurricane Katrina, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said repair crews had patched the ruptured levee along the 17th Street Canal and had begun pumping out water.
The failure of the levee system after the storm left about 80 percent of the city flooded up to 20 feet deep, and Corps officials said it would take nearly three months to drain some neighborhoods, CNN reported.
Deputy Police Chief Warren Riley told reporters that thousands of people -- many of them with pets -- are insisting on staying in what he called "a hazard."
"We advise people that this city has been destroyed. It has been completely destroyed," Riley said.
tip of the iceberg
is this Bush's fault too? I wonder how many of the dead will turn out to be murder victims.
Well, those in the convention center didn't slit their own throats. Most in the city probably drowned though.
I thought the disturbances at the convention center were isolated incidents by frustrated people
Just doing what they otherwise would not do...............
I think this was already posted
I wonder if they were put there after they were found dead or if it happened to them while staying there.
I guess don't understand what "mutilated bodies" means.
Apparently, there were many, many animals in the Superdome. 40 bodies? One that of a 7-year-old? Will those perps ever be caught? Is the New Orleans Police Department capable of locating the devils who did these crimes? God, what a nightmare.
How horrible. I have been thinking and hoping that the reports were exaggerated. They still might be, but this is not a good sign.
Someone on another thread said this was all rumor mongering and totally unsubstantiated. I guess this is proof of the horror we heard from those inside the convention center.
As the guy on Rush said today, "Republicans just want to see black people die. That's just more people who can't vote against the Republicans."
Some people simply do not deserve their existence.
Time was, you would be safe BECAUSE you were a child or a woman... Now, children and women are prey
Animals....I think they were savages....preying on the innocent...and children for crying out loud!
Still some lingering confusion - just to make it clear - the SuperDome and the Convention Center are two different places. SuperDome was a horrible vision of Hell on Earth. Convention Center was worse.
All 40 of them 'mutilated'?
Don't be gullible folks. This is BS.
Karl Rove's fault, obviously.
According to Fox News about an hour ago, 30% of the New Orleans police force has not been heard from in about a week. I wonder how many indictments and prosecutions there will be for crimes committed during the chaos. Heck, even BEFORE the hurricane was a blip on the radar screen, 42% of all serious crime in New Orleans was never prosecuted.
Close the city for good. Build refineries...make it a sea port...no neighborhoods no apartments..nothing. Make it for business ports and oil only.
The city of N.O. is and always will be a total cess pool of sin and disease. This article proves it.
If they want to keep the French Quarter for historical purposes then find the means. But don't build hotels all over the place for visitors. Ridiculous to throw some of the numbers I have heard at it.
$1 trillion was a number I heard last night on ABC News.
I'd rather spend that on border control.
Not-so-isolated incidents committed by chronically angry people without a shred of conscience.
This is from UPI?? Didn't they go out of biz years ago? At any rate, the quality of the "newswriting" does not seem up to par.
Coming soon to a city near you......who knows how many of these animals were evacuated with everyone else...
Possibly by rats and other small animals forced up to higher ground and hungry.
Local authorities KNEW there would be problems with crime in the refuge centers. That's why they made everyone line up and get searched.
Did it ever occur to the Mayor or the Chief of Police that armed police should be stationed there to keep order?
The Mayor has recently complained that the NO police lacked ammunition. Did it ever occur to him or the Chief of Police that the police should have ammunition issued to them before this crisis came to a head? There was plenty of time to do it, and it would seem to be a fairly routine precaution to take.
a 7-year-old with her throat cut,
My G-d! And the good people of Texas might have accepted a monster into their midst.
The perps were most likely Kerry voters
This is Blanko's fault. We need to start the mantra. Blanko cried people died.
Mutilated means they didn't die of natural causes, but rather from brutal, body-maiming treatment.
These people are dumber than I thought. Its like the mind control has completely taken over. To me, it is very plainly clear that the mayor was a complete incompetent and the prime idiot in this whole mess. And he is what ??????
And the cycle of stupidity, dependency, welfarism, victimology, and utter ignorance continues.
I'm afraid the GROUP-THINK is not behind you on this. It would be politically incorrect to suggest anything other than making NO bigger and better than it was right now.
I expect the race pimps and arsonists to start trying to cover up what actually happened in NO after the lights went out. It's hard to directly blame the fate of these terribly mutilated children and elderly on Bush. Damage control and hush ups are already ongoing on leftist web sites. If the emerging scenery will we bad enough, the media will also abruptly drop the whole subject.
With 40,000 potential suspects??, though there are some stories of the people turning on the perps and killing them with a mob action (at the other location not the dome)
More proof of the failure of liberalism.
Well thank GOD I am not a socialist or a communist or I would be scared! lol. I could care less what others think of my opinion on the city and its future.
Seriously - can we throw the voodoo factor into the mix?
Don't be gullible folks. This is BS.
Exactly. The direct quote doesn't say that. It says many were elderly, etc.
By the way, UPI is no longer a trustworthy news wire. They pick up rumor from everywhere. They're the ones who ran the bogus story a few months ago about a supposedly Muslim marine claiming in a Saudi Arabian newspaper that the Saddam capture story was a hoax.
I'm taking this with a grain of salt. I would also assume bodies that have been sitting around for days in these conditions might appear rather "mutilated".
It's also been called "the most European city in the United States"!
Mantras are for liberals and others who have to repeat something over and over in order for people to believe lies. The facts are all we need to put out - consistently and without rancor - and the liberal mantras will seem more and more shrill and empty.
I agree, it will be shocking. I really believe someone is going to have to go to jail for this.
So the murders from the convention center and superdome have now been deciminated throughout the country. Great, ruthless, depraved murders, allowed to do their worst in New Orleans have now most probably been sent out to other unsuspecting areas of the nation.
The scam's painfully obvious.
I would rather focus on the individuals and culture which resulted in these mutilations. There was a report on a group of Vietnamese immigrants who were a "sea of tranquility" among the chaos at the Convention Center. They also refused to accept help from the rescuers before others were taken care of.
