Thugs rule NOLA

An article in the Nation outlines the use of private “security” firms to guard the elite in post Katrina New Orleans. The department of homeland security gave lucrative contracts to several dark and shady mercenary firms with ties to the GOP, of course. Most of these private armies have done duty in Iraq where no civil OR criminal law applies. When they come HERE to take the place of our local law enforcement people, they carry fully automatic weapons. It seems they can and HAVE opened up spraying civilians who they claim popped off a couple rounds at them. JESUS, now we have to fear republican private armies on top of everything else? This story SHOULD send a chill down our collective bones. BUT, if it’s not on TV, it didn’t happen. Read this rather short article and tell us if it put a chill down YOUR back the same as it did ours.
