I just finished watching part 1 of 2 of Oprah on Location: Inside the Katrina Catastrophe. Oprah Winfrey and her Angel Network Team brought food, water, and other necessities to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. They also showed the stories that you haven't seen on the news. The thing that made me the maddest and saddest was when Eddie Compass, New Orleans police chief, told Oprah "We had little babies in there (the Superdome), little babies getting raped," he says. "You know how frustrating it is to be the Chief of Police knowing inside these things are being done and you don't have enough manpower to go in there?" Another family, who chose to wander the streets rather than stay in the Superdome, confirmed that childern were being raped when they went to the bathrooms in the Superdome. I keep crying when I think about that. It makes me so angry that people are so evil that they would rape babies and children.
