Rants, part 2

What the hell is wrong with people? Now they are SHOOTING at the rescue choppers! Unbelievable. There is a sniper shooting at helicopters trying to rescue people from a charity hospital and NBC said that someone shot at the chopper trying to get people out of the superdome. These folks are just plain crazy mean.

This is a quote I found on the news stories section of Yahoo: "Hospitals are trying to evacuate," said Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Cheri Ben-Iesan, spokesman at the city emergency operations center. "At every one of them, there are reports that as the helicopters come in people are shooting at them. There are people just taking potshots at police and at helicopters, telling them, `You better come get my family.'"

Some Federal Emergency Management rescue operations were suspended in areas where gunfire has broken out, Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said in Washington. "In areas where our employees have been determined to potentially be in danger, we have pulled back," he said.

A National Guard military policeman was shot in the leg as the two scuffled for the MP's rifle, police Capt. Ernie Demmo said. The man was arrested.

Personally, I wouldn't come back and get the guy and his family after being shot at.

Sometimes I wonder why God doesn't do something similar to the flood and just start over again, or stop waiting for whatever he's waiting for and just declare this world done and come again and save the sane folks out there from the disasters evil crazy mean morons create.

God bless.
