    I commented on this yesterday w/o having seen it. I opined that the officers wer probably doing their jobs by commandeering clothing for the victims. Sadly, I was wrong.

    These officers were shopping for sizes. They were looting. They should be charged with the LA equivalent of Official Misconduct.

    Again, I was wrong.

    Sick and wrong. That is just sad that these officer are even wasting their time breaking the law when they could be out searching for some of the thousands missing and dead, or protecting our fellow firefighters who are getting shot at while trying to actually do their job. Is it to much to ask them to do their job. Sickening.

    lets hope that this is not overlooked in the weeks and months to come, and that these officers get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Don't get me wrong I have real good relations with police and law enforcement, but to me those so called officers depected in the video are scum and deserve prosecution.

    Let's hope their brass sees this!

My dream and I hope you don't find this too crazy is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    "We were filling a cart up with some much needed supplies for some sick/injured/cold/starving babies who were left w/o a family."
    Some bull-plop statement like that will be what not only allows those two pieces of crap to avoid prosecution, but to keep their jobs as well.
    Human garbage wearing a badge. Sickening.

    I couldn't find it to post here, but I saw another story where there was a photo of a NOPD officer in full uniform coming out of a store with a handful of DVDs. Disgusting but like the pictures of the civilian looters, for everyone that is doing these things there are many more that are simply struggling to survive and helping their fellow man. For proof, just read dmleblanc's thread about people stranded at the convention center bagging trash because they didn't want their town to look so bad when the rescuers arrived.

    Just like our FF arsonists, these looting cops deserve the strongest possible punishment but I'm pretty certain they're a very small minority.

    I wasnt going to comment on this. AT first I was upset, but then I had to watch it again and as the anchor man said you cant help but laugh.

    What makes it sad is people are out there dieing and the police (in that video) are not even taking things that could be useful to help the citizens. There taking what they want and need. As HFRH28 said, hope the brass sees the video, but at this point unfortunatley what can they do. The city is unable to collect tax dollars, and these officers are nto going to get paid anytime soon so they dont care.
    You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

    Some times I wounder if I grew up in the same world as these people!

    I can understand getting water and food... but this is just so wrong. To see cops in uniform doing this.... do they thing that a single person in NO is going to respect the police force after this is all over?

    I can't even begin to explain how mad I am right now

    Exclamation The Mayor needs a police force!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just think! The mayor was ****ed at the response to the city.He should be asking his police chief!why just one day after the storm the city is out of control?I hope the New Orleans Mayor has new socks to cover the foot thats in his mouth.I believe once the smoke clears the main failure falls on the city shoulders.One report has 50 % of the police force walked off the job!I hope they can locate those officers .If so, maybe he can purchase some walmart socks cheap to cover that foot in his mouth.
    Always a day late and a dollar short!

    No need to purchase anything. Apparently it's free. (See above video.)

    Sounds as if the NOPD has lots of problems. They just reported on MSNBC that approx. 2/3 of the force quit or weren't there doing their job. They left.

    Sadly New Orleans Police have a long standing reputation for being one of the most corrupt police forces in the counry. Some are worse than the people they arrest. I saw it first hand on a past visit to the city. No big surprise that in a time of disaster their true colors are coming out...

    Thumbs down Looting Video

    Yes anyone caught looting should be brought to justice. We can all armchair quarterback, but I wonder if we lost everything, chaos and anarchy all around what would we do? Some of complain if we have to do work that is out of our job description, our tours are too long and that we are underpaid. We are still able to go off shift and then complain at home about how bad we have it. There are three types of people: Those that make things happen; Those that watch things happen; Those that wonder what happened. i.e. GWB P.S. Be careful what you ask for you may get it

    Angry The fat and the lazy...

    When you have an organization as large (and as, often is the case, corrupt) as the NOPD, not everyone will live up to the ideal standards that we usually hold police officers to. The saying goes that there are bad apples in every bunch, and these two ladies obviously fall into that category.

    What makes this so bad is that they have brothers and sisters on the force who are actually out there doing the job -- saving and protecting lives. The latest reports say that at least two NOPD officers have committed suicide. So while some officers have experienced so much that they have to take their own lives... these lazy ladies go shopping. What a disgrace.
