Default Looting

Did you guys that stayed through Ivan and other storms have any problems or witness any looters?

No looting or thievery that I heard about here on Bayou Chico. We have had few problems as my reputation has spread - Born and raised in Tupelo, MS, Former Marine, 30 year retired fireman who survived the Watts Riots *, gun collector, mean old sob who would just as soon shoot you, (double tap) as look at you.

Protect our Second Amendment Rights!!!!!

* I am still waiting for a chance to get even with the MF's who were shooting at me while I was up 65' on a ladder pipe trying to put out a fire they started. I was lucky and never saw combat while a Marine, just when I was a fireman. I will never forget small arms rounds whizzing by me. Three firemen died in the 1965 Watts Riots and it was silenced. ENUFF!!!

There was a lot of looting going on after Ivan, hopefully no one on this forum fell victim to looting, but it was a problem for the first week or so after the storm. Nothing like New Orleans, but pretty bad for this area during the first week afterwards.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">A group of us stayed in Miltonat the Moore's. It's honestly the first time I have been in a home with a concrete foundation where I felt the whole place shake. Kinda scary stuff. Anyway, we eventually left and headed towards town but had to travel North from Milton, then West, then South back down into Pensacola because of all the tornado damage all over Milton area. We made it to my then office (down from my current location) on Navy Blvd, and my computer guy volunteered to stay in my office because the front floor to ceiling windows were destroyed. Thank God he did, because he claimed that he ran off at least four groups that were running up and down the road going through damaged buildings (we left him heavily armed when dropping him off). We eventually made it to Gulf Beach highway about 2 miles before reaching the bridge and so goes the rest of the story......</DIV>

Two black guys shined a q-beam in our house the night after the storm, but thesound of a shotgun slide racking moved them along pretty quickly.They were pushing a shopping cart, but didn't have much in it yet.

Always stay locked and loaded after a big storm.

Another question...When the governor, mayor, chief of police or who ever says "mandatory evacuation"...does that mean they can physically remove you from your home or do you have the right to stay no matter what?

you cannot be forced to leave your home. You will be on your own after a certain point, but the gov does not have the authority to make you leave. yet.....

They can never force you to leave. About the only place that they put under a mandatory evac is the beach usually. And you are plain dumb to stay there in anything over a TS.

There were SO many Sheriff's Deputies in Navy Point after Ivan , I didn't hear about any looting ... we would ride bicycles around to other friends houses at night and were repeatedly stopped by the Deputies , felt good and safe :angel
