(Article Inside) BEWARE... it's not nice
This Article I Found A Little While Ago

Watching news coverage of
the refugees trying to enter the Louisiana Superdome in New
Orleans for safety from the approaching force-five Hurricane
Katrina, I was incredulous how the people attempting to enter
the stadium were being treated by the National Guard troops
and local police. The people were made to stand for hours
outside in the awful Louisiana climate while they were
admitted one or two adults at a time so they could be searched
"for firearms and alcohol."
The frail elderly, many
grasping walkers and others in wheelchairs seemed to be near
collapse. They, along with hundreds of small children needing
water and rest-room relief, were forced to wait as long as
four hours to get to safety. It was often repeated during the
video reports that the last time the Superdome was used as a
hurricane shelter, a few of the temporary occupants removed
some furniture. But this time, they had a large security force
on hand, so that was NOT going to happen again, no-siree-bob.
During coverage by Geraldo Rivera Sunday night, FOX
NEWS' video cameras zoomed inside the foyer deck of the
Superdome and viewers could see a national guard person going
through a powder compact from of a woman's purse that was way
too small to hold a liquor bottle or a gun. It was obvious
that they were looking for PLURPLURPLURPLURPLUR in warrantless
searches. They instructed all the refugees far back in the
seemingly endless lines to have their
prescription-PLURPLURPLURPLUR bottles out when approaching the
security checkpoint and also a photo ID to prove that they
belonged with the prescription.
There were THOUSANDS
of poor, mostly black citizens of the lower Louisiana area,
many of them little children and sickly elderly, being forced
to stand for hours while the government violated their civil
rights with forced searches that were patently
unconstitutional, unjust and unreasonable under the dire
circumstances. "Don't want to be searched? That's okay...now
turn around, go outside and die!" Big choice.
imagine New Orleans' wealthy elite meekly submitting to such
microscopic searches of their persons and property for
PLURPLURPLURPLURPLUR? Heads would PLURPLURPLURPLUR. But poor
people who had no money to escape the deadly storm's onslaught
had no choice. They had nowhere else to go to save their
children's and parents' lives. They were humiliated just for
trying to survive. Their grandfathers and grandmothers
suffered as slaves on Southern plantations decades ago, while
today, they suffer as slaves to the state, the state that
cancels their human rights and dignity in the name of
Did you see that, America? Nothing
has changed in the South. Poor people of are still being
herded and treated as criminals because of the color of their
skin. The Sheriff and Louisiana National Guard knows the
profile of likely PLURPLURPLURPLUR users: black people and
anyone associating with them; they were searched just as if
they were entering a state penitentiary visiting a death-row
prisoner. Maybe the refugees would have fared better if they
had had season tickets in their hands.
Think about it.
They can allow in 30,000 screaming fans with fifty-dollar
bills and costly NFL tickets in their hands in a few minutes,
but poor black people fleeing for their lives, four hours.
None of the news people I saw on the major
cable and broadcast networks noticed this outrage. Apparently,
they are still "embedded" with the government and couldn't
possibly risk dislodging their heads long enough to report the
truth right before their eyes.
We let morons take away
our rights to person and property at the airports, all for the
false "protection" they promised us and can't possibly
deliver, so now we see them doing it to helpless citizens even
when the citizens' lives are in danger. "First, we gotta check
you for weapons and PLURPLURPLURPLURPLUR...pull your dress up,
lift up your arms...." – let those old people collapse and
those kids soil themselves – "This is FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY."
God forbid that anyone have a hip flask to calm their
nerves during a traumatic life-and-death experience. Someone
else might actually toke up or take a non-prescription
PLURPLURPLURPLUR! And a few might take their right to keep and
bear arms seriously, when everyone knows that only government
employees deserve self-protection, not their citizen "bosses."
The constitution doesn't apply when the government thinks it
can make you safer by judging you, disarming you, and denuding
you of your rights.
Who gave the order to make all
these exhausted, miserable poor people wait for hours while
they were searched so illicitly? Under what actual law did
they search these refugees for anything whatsoever on their
person? Do they search football game fans this thoroughly and
for this long? Suuuuuure they do....
Could all this
form a mass tort against the State of Louisiana? Maybe. Some
of the Superdome refugees must be hopping mad.
face it. If you're poor in America, you're a "suspect," maybe.
If you're poor and black in America, you're a "criminal,"
definitely. Even if your life is in peril, no excuses. Your
rights don't count as long as any badge or weekend warrior in
BDU's says they don't.
This is the real story of the
Louisiana Superdome. Hurricane Katrina can certainly destroy
the environs of the Louisiana and her neighboring states, but
that can all be rebuilt. What will never be rebuilt is the
dignity of the poorest citizens of that region, since the
government acted with a greater destructive force than a
hurricane. The lamp of freedom has been blown out by
force-five bureaucrats, their sycophants and their
head-embedded media enablers who will insure that it will
never get re-ignited. For our own good, of course.
Heads should PLURPLURPLURPLUR in Louisiana, for all
those whose civil rights were violated on Sunday, August 28,
2005, outside the Louisiana Superdome of Shame.
