It's Time, People

It's time to take of the fucking gloves.

Maybe it's a little extreme to expect the police to shoot all looters on sight, given that SOME of them are merely taking food and water in order to survive. For these people it comes down to "I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six". Without food and water, they will die.

But, we're well past looter status. Were dealing with domestic terrorism now.

NEW ORLEANS --The evacuation of the Superdome was suspended Thursday after shots were reported fired at a military helicopter and arson fires broke out outside the arena. No immediate injuries were reported.

Fuck 'em. Gloves off. Game on.

These "people" are the lowest form of amoral scum walking the earth. IF what they're reporting is true, and armed thugs are firing on US military personnel, they need to be eradicated.

The restoration of order is the top priority for our police and military in that region. If we don't take the gloves off now, it will only get worse. And more innocent lives will be lost.

SHOOT ON SIGHT - it's not just for cynical bloggers anymore.

And, please, spare me this whole "but they've been oppressed by the man" argument. I've been watching as much news coverage over the last couple of days as the next guy. What I've seen is that most of the people trapped in New Orleans, the poorest of the poor, have been banding together to help their neighbors get through this horrifying ordeal - people working together to save the lives of total strangers. These are people who have literally NOTHING but the clothes on their back, yet they remain focused on helping their brothers and sisters to survive.

This is not a black vs. white issue.

This is not a rich vs. poor issue.

This is simply a matter of decent, law-abiding people who have no choice but to share this planet with walking piles of amoral, subhuman filth.
