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.
