They're scared of black people.....
FEMA decided to pull all it's workers out of the lower 9th Ward because they claimed their workers were threatened with violence.
A FEMA spokeswoman stated, "It's unfortunate that threats of violence would be made against anyone, as we all work together to recover from this disaster. The first priority is to protect and ensure the safety of FEMA workers."
However "Tami Frazier, a spokeswoman for Nagin, said the New Orleans Police Department commander in charge of the area reported no incidents, complaints or removal of anyone for making threats."
WaPo reports an angry resident did get in an argument with a Corps of Engineers employee and said something to the effect that "I'm going to go get my gun, and I'm going to kill you."
FEMA says they will go back in when they have more protection from troops or police. (Note they already have guard & police escorts)
This is ridiculous.
Have you ever had someone 'help' you with a project, only they were more trouble than it was worth and you just told them you can handle it from here so they'd run along home and you could get the work done?
It sounds like we're at that point with FEMA.
