      I'm guessing that he meant "NO" (New Orleans) and also "martial law," rather than "marshall law."

        I wonder how the overseas deployment of the National Guard is impacting the ability of the Governor to enforce martial law and provide disaster relief. I also wonder if they will deploy active duty units there like they did after Andrew.

          I got into the LEO business quite late in life ( in my 50s) and was quite perturbed to hear "the citizens" referred to as dirtbags, scum and much worse. It kinda surprised me to think that "they" ( now me) thought of "us"
          ( now them) that way.
          However, that soon changed.
          They ( now "we" ) were right..........whats wrong with these people? Is it that we have created a culture of no responsibility? Everything is an excuse.
          "Oh, I looted because.........." " I shot the officer because........."( insert excuse of the day)

            This answers one of my questions:

            By LOLITA C. BALDOR, Associated Press Writer


            WASHINGTON - From Navy ships and Army helicopters to the USNS Comfort hospital ship, the Pentagon is mobilizing possibly an unprecedented rescue-and-relief mission for areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

            Largely coordinated by the U.S. Northern Command, all of the military services are participating in what many say is the largest domestic disaster relief effort in years. The military is mainly providing search and rescue, medical help and supplies in support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Gulf Coast states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

                Rumours will be flying, I assure you. Have yet to hear any confirmation and with all the coverage you would think someone would have brought it up.

                      While I absolutely DO NOT support officers joining in with the looting, I think it's easy for us to sit in our DRY homes, in the air conditioning, sipping a cold drink, and passing judgement on brother and sister officers. We all know how the media works, and what they will show. N.O. has at least a couple thousand officers, and if four of them are looting while the rest are trying to do their jobs in unimaginable circumstances, what do you think ol' CNN is gonna put on TV???

                      C'mon folks, a little support for your family in blue is in order. Your house isn't flooded, you will be getting a paycheck on payday, you know where your family is, and you aren't worried about whether you will get to eat tonight.

                      They are woefully outnumbered by people who likely had questionable ethics to begin with, who now see this as a free for all opportunity to take whatevr they want. You can't lock them up...where are you gonna put them? You can shoot a few, but you'll run out of ammo long before you run out of turds.

                      I think now is the time for prayers and support, not comments on how they are dealing with something that we don't have to go through right now.
                      Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.

                        The shooting of a NOPD officer in the head is confirmed, but he is going to be okay. STORY

                        Gunmen And Looters

                        The top Homeland Security official in New Orleans said bands of gunmen are roaming through the city.

                        Terry Ebbert said looters have been breaking into stores all over town to steal guns. The Times-Picayune newspaper reported that the gun section at a new Wal-Mart has been cleaned out. And the thieves are apparently using their new guns, with shots heard through the night.

                        Guns aren't the only things drawing the thieves. People commandeered a forklift in high ground to lift storm shutters and break the glass of a Rite-Aid pharmacy. A crowd stormed the store, carrying away ice, water and food.

                        A spokeswoman for Lousiana's governor said workers at Children's Hospital huddled with sick kids and waited for help to arrive as looters tried to break in. Help never arrived.

                        A city councilwoman said, "The French Quarter has been attacked." She said "exhausted, scarce police" have to be diverted from search and rescue to try to control the looters.

                        What police presence there is in New Orleans and Biloxi, Miss., isn't slowing down looters.

                        A police spokesman in New Orleans said a police officer was shot in the head by a looter, but he's expected to recover.

                        Dozens of looters on historic Canal Street have ripped open steel gates to stores. Some filled plastic garbage cans to carry or float stolen goods.

                        In Biloxi, looters picked through slot machines of damaged casinos to see if they still had coins inside.

                        One motel owner said people are just "filling up garbage bags and walking off like they're Santa Claus."
                        In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.

                        In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.

                        Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.

                        I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

                          With law officers and National Guardsmen focused on saving lives, looters around the city spent another day brazenly ransacking stores for food, clothing, appliances

                            New Orleans Police Station Attacked As Looters Rampage

                            The areas hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina are unfortunately also those hardest hit by looters while the police trying to stop them in New Orleans came under attack when two men with AK-47s opened fire on their police station.

                            Fox News reporter Jeff Goldblatt said two men with automatic weapons opened fire on a downtown New Orleans police station late Tuesday in an apparent retaliation against an officer who tried to stop looters earlier in the day from carting off clothes and jewelry from stores in the area.

                            As conditions deteriorated on the Gulf Coast, with no electricity, no water, and rising flood waters, looters were running wild in the streets, first looting grocery stores and later pharmacies, clothing and jewelry stores.

                            "It's downtown Baghdad," a tourist in downtown New Orleans said. "It's insane. I've wanted to come here for 10 years. I thought this was a sophisticated city. I guess not."

                            Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour said looting would not be tolerated in his state and that looters would be dealt with "ruthlessly," but with no electricity in the areas hardest hit and communication systems down, police and National Guard units were hampered in their efforts to stop the lawlessness.

                            A Matter of Survival

                            But some of the "looting" was a matter of survival. One report said a manager of a Wal-Mart opened the doors of his store and told residents to take anything they needed.

                            At a drug store near the French Quarter in New Orleans, two police officers with shotguns stood guard as workers from the Ritz-Carlton Hotel across the street loaded large laundry bins full of medications, snack foods and bottled water.

                            "This is for the sick," Officer Jeff Jacob said. "We can commandeer whatever we see fit, whatever is necessary to maintain law." Officer D.J. Butler told the crowd standing around that they would leave as soon as they got the necessities. "I'm not saying you're welcome to it," the officer said. "This is the situation we're in. We have to make the best of it."

                              from what i understand, NOPD officers were gathering basic supplies like medicine, food and clothing to give to people. in a case like this, i think their justified in taking those things in order to preserve lives.
