I wasn't there. I don't know what went on. I DO believe these people were stranded far too long. It is hard to tell what a person would do when faced with such deplorable conditions. Not unlike any wartime situation where troops are cut off from their batallion, I cannot say with any certainty what I would have done in the same situation.
I think this is a smoke screen to cover up the gross neglect that the victims of Katrina suffered at the hands of both the Louisiana and Federal government for such inept handling.
Sorry, but "truth hurts".
