worth a thousand words…

In another effort of “encouragement,” a Louisiana State Police SWAT team, armed
with rifles, confronted two brothers at their home in the Uptown section of New
Orleans, leaving one sobbing.

“I thought they were going to shoot me,” said 23-year-old Leonard Thomas, weeping on his front porch. “That dude came and stuck the gun dead at my head.”

One officer, who did not give his name, said his team tried to make sure that the two men understood that food and water is becoming scarce and that disease could begin spreading.


Leonard Thomas, 23, cries after a SWAT team burst into the flooded home he and his family were living in on Monday, Sept. 5, 2005. Neighbors had reported that they were squatting in the house in the wake of Hurricane Katrina but the authorities left after his family proved they owned the house. Some rescuers are not taking any more food and water to those who have decided to stay in an effort to force them out. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
