    Does anyone know the percentage of police officials that abandoned their post when Katrina hit? NO ONE could have felt like them unless they were there. Did some abuse their authority, I'm thinking yes. A TRUE person comes out of their shell at a time of crisis.

    If you were law enforcement during that time and in that place, feel free to judge the actions of those men and women who attempted to keep a city in chaos safe. If you weren't, keep your uninformed and judgmental comments to yourself. My family and friends were working New Orleans after Katrina and it still haunts them. As a counselor, the stories I heard from survivors still haunt me. It's easy to sit in judgement from far away or in a news media outlet if you weren't there, didn't hear the stories, and didn't deal with the aftermath of that disaster. If you understood the truth, you would be less likely to question and more likely to find another perceived liberal wrong to make yourselves feel good about righting at CNN.

    Its hard to say whether it was or not since we weren't there. But you have to understand the state of New Orleans during that time. The police HAD to crack down to try to stop looting and worse. Unfortunately, nothing they did mattered.
