    I'm normally a proponent of vigilantism, but these guys took it too far.

    Sure, they were prepared so they didn't have to leave. And sure, they were worried about looters.
    But damn, they took 'shoot first' to new limits. And the fact that they enjoyed it really gives 'legitimate vigilantes' (the ones that really are just defending themselves and their families) a bad name...

    FTA:


    ...
    UNIDENTIFIED MAN 2: We had looters.

    UNIDENTIFIED MAN 3: It was great!

    UNIDENTIFIED MAN 4: It was great!

    UNIDENTIFIED MAN 3: It was like pheasant season in South Dakota!

    UNIDENTIFIED MAN 4: Right on!

    UNIDENTIFIED MAN 3: If it moved, you shot it!
    ...

    UNIDENTIFIED MAN 3: I earned my wings.

    Even if this was gospel truth, I'm okay with it.

    I guess I'm weird. I don't see self defense as entertainment; Vigilance is a product of fear, not boredom.

    False bravado after contact.
    They were probably shitting their pants when they did it.

    haha, that could be the case. i guess I'd have to see how the acted, and not hear how they acted (even if it came from their mouths)

    You know what, good for them, if blacks in New Orleans think that any issue that arises in New Orleans or anywhere in this country is just an opportunity to get back to their roots with the stealing, raping and murdering they got what they deserved.

    they were just walking through the neighborhood in an attempt to evacuate...

    sure, the people (of any race) that were looting should've been dealt with. but the people that were minding their own business? or is that just collateral damage?

    Collateral damage, find alternative route.

    With everything that was going on down there do you really think that's the whole truth?

    Self defense or defense of important property are necessary and justified, but I would avoid using the term "vigilante" due to the general definition of the term being actions of choice rather than forced necessity.

    My dad was down there for months doing contracted electrical work from the aftermath. He stayed in the FEMA camp in Chalmet (sp?) for a while and some of the stories he told me definitely never made it to the News stations.

    -Guys in BDUs with 'Blackwater' name tags running around everywhere.
    -Automatic weapons fire just about every night
    -Locals telling him about how they dealt with the looters (shoot'em and feed them to the alligators)

    From the sound of it, more looters were 'dealt with' than we know about.

    Same shit with Iraq, you dont hear about the kids having IED's tied too them, or leaving babies in beds abandoned sitting on a pressure plate so when they do MOUT's they try to care for the baby and blow up.
