Lions and Tigers and Gustav, Oh My!

As Gustav rolls on towards Louisiana I'm reminded of a time several years ago now when the Mayor of N.O. and his jack booted thugs trampled on the constitutionally guarenteed rights of that city's citizens then proceeded to systematically deny the act and blocked any attempts to recover what the "police" had illegally siezed.

I put police in quotes because I don't believe they were acting in any way legally. If the force is acting illegally they stop being police at that point in my book and become just another petty dictators strong arm force.

So, I'm interested to see what happens this time. Will it be a replay of the worst that can happen or will calmer heads prevail.
