I have to defend my home town to those of you who don't really have any idea what it is like to experience what everyone on the coast line experienced. First of all I lost my sister, brother in law and two teenage nephews with speical needs to Hurricane Katrina. Also, my mother, brother and two other sisters along with their families lost every single thing they had in their homes, including animals, cars, you name it, EVERYTHING. And so did pretty much everyone in the Hancock County area. You people are failing to mention the people who are not the thugs or a part of the Dixie Moffia. There are bad people in every single town in the USA. Sure people had things taken from them, someone tried to steal the gas out of my sisters mini van that sat outside her flooded out home while her and her families bodies sat in her house rotting. That's pretty bad. But most people where in desparation mode and didn't know which way to turn because the nations focus was on New Orleans. They didn't get hit by a Hurricane, their leeves broke due to their city's poor planning many, many years ago. Which they knew this was going to happen. As to what happened to "broke" is very unfortunate. I would like to know if you were the man who lifted houses and moved them. If you are, I believe you did work for my mother. For some reason I remember her telling me about someone having their equipment stolen. Anyway,if it was you, she paid you in full, and thought your work was great. She never got on a message board and complained about how you didn't show up for days at a time or wouldn't call her to let her know when the job was going to be completed. She waited patiently while sliently dying inside because her life as she knew it was completely destroyed not to mention four family memebers and countless friends were dead due to this tragedy. Everyone suffered, and barley three months after she moved back into her house she died on her bathroom floor of a heart attack. We believe a broken heart. But aside from my personal loses, that CAN NOT be replaced with insurance money. I hope you recoupe your equipment, you didn't deserve that, nor did you deserve to be run out of town, in which ever way you believe you did. I don't dispute that my home town is a close knit place that looks out for each other, but I do dispute that not everyone there is a thief or corrupt. In my life time there I have never expeienced nothing but a bunch of laid back people who just want to look out for each other and enjoy the southern hospitality. So, for those of you who helped out in MS, God bless you and please don't let a few corrupt idiots stop you from helping those out in need. God will repay you in more ways than in money or personal possessions. And you will be forever remembered for your kindness despite your feelings or bad experience you had. Again, the coast does appreciate you.

Just wondering if these so called vehicles that were following you were had coast license plates? Did you think in the 22 hours they surrounded you to jot them down? Sounds to me like you were up to some bad business to begin with at a truck stop at 1 am. Most of the thieves around here are the contractors who show up in illegal vehicles and steal from the victims of this area!

This all seems rather odd to me! A friend of mine whose expensive things were in the Waveland storage never had a thing stolen...that included LOTS of expensive tools! The door of the storage unit was completely destroyed, and many items were lying around everywhere...no one stole a dang thing!
All I want to know is who the hell did YOU piss off?
It didn't lay there long I bet.
I pissed off a bunch that were ( or are ) there to take advantage of a bad situation and the lack of law enforcement.
I got too deep into thier business and I guess they took it personal.
I knew who they were , what they were doing, how they did it and even when they were about to do it because of thier methods and patternizing. To me, it was obvious. To others, it wasn't.
I knew too much and apparently was a threat to thier operation. There were more people involved from neighboring states than there was from Mississippi, but there were locals involved. If that's how the coast lives , more power to 'em. Live and let live. But why pick apart someone who has shown nothing but honesty & compassion to a town full of people in need, often
Say what you want. Call me a carpetbagger if you want.( I'm not even sure what that is ) But I know better. I was raised by adopting parents that tought me values & morals and the importance of being honest. They also raised me to help a stranger in need if I can.
I still have many of the people I met there in my thoughts and prayers and always will, but I also still have a knot in my gut from losing what my livelyhood depended on to survive to a bunch of rats.
Things that I got with hard WORK and HONESTY!!!
I didn't steal a damn thing from anybody while I was there. I did not take advantage of anybody while I was there. That's not what I'm about.
Me, my tools and my equipment worked for free helping homeowners in the debris fields while locally owned equipment sat idle waiting for the money to start.
I would only hope and pray that if something like the wrath of Katrina ever happened to me and my family, someone would offer help without concern for a dollar.
I shared what God allowed me to have and would probaly do it again.
So go ahead with your remarks and show your true colors.
I know me, sir....You obviously don't.

Pleae accept my heart felt sympathy and condolences for your losses, and know that you , your family and those like you on the coast will FOREVER be in my prayers. I wouldn't wish Katrina's devestation on my worst enemy. It's too inhumane. God Bless you all and I wish you the best with your rebuilding. Wish I could do more.

FamilylivesintheBay, my prayers are with you and your family. My Grandmother died also, of a broken heart- realizing that everything was lost that she and my Grandfather worked for all of the 65 years that they were married.The realization of never being able to go back, I firmly believe, was a large part of what left her emotionally devestated- having no hope and no control... again, I am so sorry for your loss.

And I was mugged visiting Dallas once. But I don't go around saying EVERYBODY there is bad.
You will find corruption in all goverment. Bush just admitted "someone" in his admin. leaked the CIA agents name,(thats called Treason) but idiots like you voted him in a 2nd term. I am also a volunteer and have met lot's of wonderful citizens. Their is a woman in this town, a "volunteer" who goes around spewing her garbage about the city goverment and anyone else who she can't put in her pocket (we have all seen her blog) Has she taken a look at what she has been doing? Anyone can spread false hope, take a million client's info, make promises to get them money to rebuild then let it sit in a file untouched for months and blame it on the system when sombody calls 6 months later to ask where their grant money is. I just read a wise doctors farewell and as he said No hope is better than false hope. maybe you gave too many tired, worn out and hopeless people false hope. It's me me me with you. If you were half as bad as her it's no wonder someone followed you out. They wanted to make sure you were really gone.

No, I don't know you, sir, and obviously you don't know that I am a m'am...LOL! I just find it so odd that someone would steal things in that manner and treat the people who assisted them after the storm in such a manner! Like I said, it was just odd to hear that, and for my friends whose expensive tools were out in the open, had nothing stolen from them. Pretty strange!

Broke - I live here in the Bay and was here for Katrina. While I thank many, many, countless people that came here to help, you were not the only one victimized. We saw a surge in crime from people who DID NOT LIVE HERE. I caught one guy in MY house in broad daylight. We were taking a lunch break in our FEMA camper when my dog started going nuts. There was a Mexican guy in my house! The Mexican popluation exploded here after Katrina. Most of the transients have left, but they have caused a ruckus here. Every corner you'd look, there was a group of homeless Mexicans looking to either work or steal. Don't get me wrong, some of them are genuine, hard workers. The ones that caused lots of trouble were mainly the young ones. My neighbor down the road caught a middle aged guy loading up their truck with their stuff, not knowing the son lived next door. He was from Texas. I had a group of volunteers that came to help us gut houses, and while at Home Depot that was in Waveland, a car full of young thugs were caught stealing tools out of the back of the volunteers' vehicle! We had our share of people stealing from us.

By the way, your story sounds ridiculous. Have you even read what you wrote? You do know the gas stations along I-10 and Hwy 49 has cameras? I'm not looking to get into a debate with you, but I've grown up here all my life and the only way you could have pissed someone off that bad if you screwed them over royally. Somehow, you must have conviently left out some information that would explain why you were given an escort for 22 hours, or you are just off your crazy meds.
