  •  This is not an excuse. (4.00)
    And your reasonable tone is unjustified. These were people drowning, being held off the bank of the river by armed guards, basically.

    •  People drowning? (none)
      Were people drowning because of this blockade? I hadn't heard about that.

        from thirst.  Pretty clear it was property over people in this case -- my understanding was that all of Gretna had already basically evacuated and what the sheriff's office was protecting was just empty property -- probably mostly insured property at that.
