Hi, I was born, and raised in the state of Gulfport,MS. Mississippi is one of the lowest paying state. I know what it is like to live there. I moved to Las Vegas in Jan. 31,1996 to better my life, and because the pay was better. My heart goes out to those people, but what is really sad about this whole fraud situation. They say there is assistance out there for help. Like the salvation army, and the red cross. My brother has 3 children, and a wife. I called, the salvation army, and requested if they could help them after hurricane Katrina, because there power was going to be turned off.The lady at the salvation army told me that she could get them an appt. by next month. I told her that they have 3 kids, and she said, well thats the best I can do. Not to mention that both girls are diabetic. I was thinking to myself all the donation people donated to them after hurricane katrina.I think that people who have commited fraud from Katrina should have a chance to speak, and tell there side of the story. This was a very bad storm, and people lost there jobs, and everything. Yes, some people had lied about there situation, and could have panic a little bit. I think people that lived in the state of Mississippi should be released from fraud, because it was a state of emergency,and I feel like this people just panic.I don't think these people had any intentions on commiting a crime like this.The goverment should check there back ground records of these people.I think that this people also pay taxes. In order to give you shall receive. This people are only human, and they are also are our people. I think they should have a chance to pay back the funds, or have them do community services to pay off there debt for fraud.
