Guys are posting from New Orlean downtown. They have live cam´s there too...

"Before the supplies were pitched off the bridge today, people had to break into buildings in the area to try to find food and water for their families. There was not enough. This spurred many families to break into cars to try to escape the city. There was no police response to the auto thefts until the mob reached the rich area -- Saulet Condos -- once they tried to get cars from there... well then the whole swat teams began showing up with rifles pointed. Snipers got on the roof and told people to get back."

"National Guard shoving water off the backs of trucks. They´re just pushing it off without stopping, people don´t even know it´s there at first -- they drop it on the side in debris, there´s no sign or distribution point -- people are scared to go near it at first, because the drop points are guarded by troops or federal agents with assault rifles who don´t let people come near them, which scares people off. It is a mess. When people actually get to the water, they are in such a rush to get it that one family left their small child behind and forget about her until Sig carried him back to the family.
"

"In case anyone in national security is reading this, get the word to President Bush that we need the military in here NOW. The Active Duty Armed Forces. Mr. President, we are losing this city. I don´t care what you´re hearing on the news. The city is being lost. It is the law of the jungle down here. The command and control structure here is barely functioning. I´m not sure it´s anyone´s fault -- I´m not sure it could be any other way at this point. We need the kind of logistical support and infrastructure only the Active Duty military can provide. The hospitals are in dire straights. The police barely have any capabilities at this point. The National Guard is doing their best, but the situation is not being contained. I´m here to help in anyway I can, but my capabilities are limited and dropping. Please get the military here to maintain order before this city is lost.
