Just remember this, Kaitlyn, it DID happen.
A kind lady helped three hurricane evacuees and got bound, gagged and murdered for her effort.
Don’t let them tell you it didn’t. May this be the only such incident. Perhaps it will be. But the evacuees weren’t angels and they weren’t victims either.
CNN) -- A Texas woman was allegedly robbed and killed by three hurricane evacuees she befriended after meeting them at her church, according to Pasadena, Texas, police.
Betty Blair, 77, was strangled to death inside her Pasadena home Friday and her bound body was discovered by her daughter Friday evening, said Pasadena Police spokesman Vance Mitchell.
Three suspects -- all described as hurricane evacuees -- were arrested Friday evening after police located the dead woman's missing car through its OnStar electronic tracking system, Mitchell said.

Slowly, the REAL Story of the Levees Comes Out
At this time, November in 2005 this year of our Lord, there’s been time for some investigation, some speculation, some inspection. For Hurricane Katrina came is a strong Cat 3 storm, not a Cat 4 as originally reported. The levees of New Orleans were alleged to be able to contain a Cat 3.
The sad fact is, whatever the outcome, those levees have never been tested anywhere near the level that they were tested during Hurricane Katrina. Who knows that had Katrina been a Cat 1 the things would also have collapsed?
In due course, Kaitlyn, after many studies by many people, after many attempts at cover-up should corruption in the levee building be discovered, the truth will come out. Below, it begins.
From the NY Times:
These levees should have been expected to perform adequately at these levels if they had been designed and constructed properly," said the expert, Raymond Seed, a professor of civil engineering at the University of California, Berkeley.
"Not just human error was involved," Professor Seed said. "There may have been malfeasance."
Professor Seed, whose team was financed by the National Science Foundation, did not offer hard evidence to back up his accusation. But he said after the hearing that the team had been contacted by levee workers, contractors and, in some cases, widows of contractors who told stories of protective sheet pile being driven less deeply than plans called for and corners cut in choosing soils for construction, among other problems.
