Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Who Is Really behind the Looting in New Orleans?

I suspect one of the planned effects of the World Trade Center attack was to create a social breakdown similar to what's now happening in New Orleans. After all, according to American movies (where many of them got their ideas about America), American cities were about to explode any moment. The expected riot didn't happen. In 2003, they even tried claiming the nonexistent blackout riot happened. This year, they may have gone for a more active approach.

An Islamofascist terror planner, after noting the near disaster last year of Hurrican Ivan and also noting the persistent lack of preparation for a large hurricane in New Orleans, may have decided to send “wandering shreds of human debris” over to New Orleans in the days before the hurricane struck. Once they got there, they proceeded to disrupt public order in general and the rescue effort in particular. Looting TV sets does not make sense for either desperate people (who will be taking bottled water, etc.) or ordinary crooks (who will steal items that can be hidden or smuggled easily). You can't show up the Superdome or Astrodome with a 50-inch TV set and get away with it. Shooting at rescue workers makes even less sense in the absence of a deliberate plan.

I don't know if anybody actually planned this, but the Other Side has started gloating.

For my sins, I had to do a lot of digging in various legal databases, including court transcripts.

The crims who get caught are almost universally Ot-nay Oo-tay Ight-bray if you know what I mean. It would astound me if the people carrying TV sets had thought things through, like, no electricity, no place to fence the gear, pretty obvious what you're doing to any passing police etc.

Many are crims because they lack the capacity to make any form of plan: theft and usually violence is the only way they know of getting enough to eat. They are in general terminally stupid and brutal.
