It looks like civil society has completely broken down in New Orleans. This just goes to show how close to the door the wolves remain, how easily the fabric of modern society can be rent.

The National Guard and New Orleans police need to get this situation under control so they can focus on saving lives and preserving whatever property still lingers. Looters must be shot on sight - the looters are behaving like animals and should be treated as such.

Here's the deal. Order must be restored. As matters now stand, New Orleans looks like Haiti. Stop the bleeding. Clean it up. Whatever it takes. No apologies.
