SHAME ON CEDRIC and everyone that assisted him in his quest to obtain items that did not belong to him and were no intended for him.

Cedric Floyd in the gentleman in the center. I guess he's a thief and not a looter.

Geez! I did a word search on this Floyd character and only got an unrelated hit fom several weeks ago.
I'm surprised the moderator didn't pull the thread if it was a dupe.

P.S. You can't fire me! I quit!

No, no. It wasn't just his home, it was a warehouse. Yeah, that's the ticket, he was just storing these things for people who had no place to put them...

It is important to remember that with all of the corruption going on, there are still the good people, as well as those who need our help.

Here are some examples...

Gee you'd think that he didn't belong to a political party!"

But AP did tell us many of the city officials, or official city folks were victims themselves.

They belong to the party in question because 1) birds of a feather do flock together, 2) they are the only birds who can get elected. which is a party effort.

So, party on you wild and crazy guys who steal eveything from elections to goods given for charity.

This is one of the two reasons why I didn't give anything for this relief effort.

"Gentleman?" LE and the media use that term too loosely. Crooks are crooks, perps are perps, and dirtbags are dirtbags.

The lowest of all scum. Stealing from the people. Get him out of there. He doesn't deserve to be in a position of authority or power.

"Philip Ramon, chief of staff to Kenner Mayor Philip Capitano, has said city officials were investigating the alleged pilfering but added that many employees were themselves hurricane victims."

Huh?

SO WHAT. What does that have to do with T-H-E-F-T.

This is why we gave through our church. We took the goods down to MS and gave it out ourselves.

Theft? There ain't no theft here. Just putting it aside to make sure it gets to the (reliable) people out there. Those in need (with a demonstrated record of political support) will get the stuff when they get back...
