Funny: They were turning people away from shelters "at gunpoint" AFTER the disaster. Why can they not forcibly evacuate?

Don't listen to the N.O. politicians crying about how they couldn't have done this. Thousands of buses stood unused, many later severely damaged by the flood waters. Their disaster plan called for using them for evacuation, but N.O. politicians don't know how to do anything but take baksheesh. They certainly know nothing about leadership.

The place should have and could have been evacuated, had anyone been actually at the switch.
