If true, this is a terrifying tale
Abdulrahman Zeitoun, a resident of New Orleans, has a very long post about his experiences after Hurricane Katrina. He stayed in New Orleans for nine days after the hurricane hit, spending much of this time canoeing around and trying to help neighbors by checking on their property, getting them medical attention, and feeding their pets. His reward for this was to be arrested by the military and held for more than three weeks on charges of looting, all the while being refused medical treatment for his injuries. It's a terrifying tale; read it.
