Children, the elderly, the mentally ill, and in-patients at hospitals could do very little to save themselves. They are not to blame. They DO have my sympathy, and should be the first treated and evacuated.
Those IDIOTS that said, "We're going to ride out the storm"? I'm sorry to say, they had it coming. Survival of the fittest.
As much as I believe they had it coming, never-the-less, they are not to blame.
Mother Nature is to blame. People, this was one hell of a storm. It was not under anyone's control.
Even if the city's hurricane defenses had been upgraded to Level 5, there's NEVER any guarantee than what man has built will stand up to the fury of Mother Nature.
As for those who are off taking pot-shots at the cops and the rescuers, I think we SHOULD shoot to kill.
