  •  cops cleaning the bathrooms? (none)
    Personally, I'd rather see cops trying to keep order, so that people could be protected from being raped or murdered.  But that's just me.

    Anyway, if it had been a simple thing to clean the bathrooms, I'm sure someone would have figured it out and done it.

      IS one way of "keeping order".  The dangers weren't all (or even, mostly) from violence among the survivors. That's the thing about disasters, even the smallest normal activities cn be part of keeping order.
