How could anyone watch this happen?

A Reuters report from the Convention Center.

They just kept them there to die. They rounded up all the poor and black of the city and held them there against their will until many were dead. Those who tried to be heroic and get help, they killed.

They just cared that little about other human beings. They put them into a concentration camp setting and waited for them to die.

I don't care anymore whether the people in charge hated blacks, or poor people or whatever. I don't care whether it was on purpose or not. When they chose to protect themselves and the rich folks in New Orleans' property instead of people, they crossed the line of what decent, loving human beings could ever do.

How could they? They have kids and parents and loved ones at home! How could they do this to anyone?
