In light of this news from ProPublica...

In the chaotic days after Hurricane Katrina, an order circulated among New Orleans police authorizing officers to shoot looters, according to present and former members of the department.

Take a moment to recall two of the more disgusting sentences published, a mere three days after the breach of 53 levees:

Peggy Noonan:

As for the tragic piggism that is taking place on the streets of New Orleans, it is not unbelievable but it is unforgivable, and I hope the looters are shot.

La Shawn Barber, the same day:

Anybody brandishing a gun who’s not wearing a uniform should be shot on sight.
