  •  highway robbery by sherrif's (none)
    of black hurricane victims. I am afraid that we will not see justice served on those who "liberated" the food and water from Katrina's victims.

    I will relate a story from hurricane Andrew. The Miami-Dade sheriff was renound for his wolf units which racially targetted potential durg dealers along the highway.

    After Andrew lumber was very expensive in Miami so one family pooled their cash together and sent one mother to buy it cheaper up north. She was stopped and her cash was confiscated. They said it was probably drug money because it was in a duffle bag. Then more information came out about the woman- how she was a regular church goer, pillar of the community etc. The sheriff's office even admited that they no longer thought is was drug money, but they still wouldn't return it to her. They had her over a barrel so they cut a deal with her. They would let her have some of it back "now" or she could spend time and money to litigate.

    The sheriff was NEVER disciplined. I hope the bastards who stole water will be though.
