Inexcusable Behavior

A friend, Mike Steele, posted this in his LiveJournal Blog. It is a story of two EMS people in New Orleans from the get-go and how they evacuated.

This story, if all true and accurate as portrayed, is aboslutely sickening. I can understand, if not condone, indifference and deliberate ignorance from on-the-spot authorities, but what is described here passes beyond into outright abuse. There is no excuse for this sort of criminal behavior.

The only recourse I can see for myself, at the moment, is to forward this link to my U.S. Senators and demand some accountability.

    Thanks for reposting this, Bill. I hope it gets heartily passed around.

    The community from which I was given the link, Ars Technica, has a very high trust quotient for me, and the poster had personally confirmed the identities of the authors. It doesn’t lend absolute veracity to the story, but it does kick it up a notch for me.
