No t*tty show, no rescue for you

Sandra, Ged and Ronan Scott of Liverpool, England, experienced horrors in New Orleans after Katrina (courtesy Liverpool Daily Post).

Blender Paul passed this one on, in disbelief after his most excellent, and over-the-top “news” from yesterday. He noted “Jesus, Pam. My fake news pales in comparison to the real thing. Check this out. Young women told to flash their tits if they want to get rescued. They refused and rescuers motored off without them.”

Human beings can be so vile to one another. What kind of animals are these people?

A group of female hurricane Katrina survivors were told to show their breasts if they wanted to be rescued, a British holidaymaker has revealed. Ged Scott watched as American rescuers turned their boat around and sped off when the women refused.

The account was just another example of the horror stories emerging from the hurricane disaster zone.

Mr Scott, 36, of Liverpool, was with his wife and seven-year-old daughter in the Ramada Hotel when the flood waters started rising.

At one point, there were a load of girls on the roof of the hotel saying ‘Can you help us?’ and the policemen said ‘Show us what you’ve got’ and made signs for them to lift their T-shirts,” he told the Liverpool Evening Echo.

“When the girls refused, they said ‘Fine’ and motored off down the road in their boat.”

At one point he had to wade through filthy water to barricade the hotel doors against looters. He said the experience made him want to vomit.

…”I could not have a lower opinion of the authorities, from the police officers on the street right up to George Bush,” he said. “I couldn’t describe how bad the authorities were. Just little things like taking photographs of us, as we are standing on the roof waving for help, for their own little snapshot albums

He added: “The American people saved us. I wish I could say the same for the American authorities.” Mike Brocken, of Chester, said he feared his wife Christine and 18-year-old daughter Stephanie would be raped when they went into the Louisiana Superdome.

For those of you that think this has to be a hoax, here’s the Liverpool Daily Post article and BBC News pages.
