A little humor at Mayor Ray Nagin's expense:
Evidently intending to forestall the looting rampant after Hurricane Katrina, Mr. Nagin promised lawbreakers a quick trip to the state’s notorious penitentiary, Angola.
“We have double the police force, double the National Guard force that we had for Katrina,” the mayor said, “and looters will go directly to jail.”
It was not clear, however, how he planned to bypass the state’s usual law enforcement procedures.
It's simple: he'll just trample their civil rights.
