    I got called to respond to the Tornado that hit Prattville Alabama Sunday.

    The storm was not bad at my house 40 miles away barely any thunder and moderate rain. My cell phone went off Sunday and we were to deploy one of our mobile hospitals. We deployed at the Baptist Hospital in Prattville to act as surge compacity, Luckily there were only about 30-40 injured brought in, only around 6 that had serious injuries. We packed up the mobile unit yesterday and I am writing up my reports and giving a critical review of what went wrong and seeing how much stuff we lost verus reported use during our short deployment.

    I do have to say that apparently the looters waited at least 5 minutes before they sacked the Kmart and the rest of the shopping center that was hit.

    One lady told me that she was trapped in her car (it was flipped over with her trapped upside down in it) and people ran around her car into the store walked out with arms full TV's etc... the whole time she was screaming for help. Some good people did help her but, the bad guys were looting the stores first.

    I wonder why I have a low opinion of my fellow man.....

    Most of my life I've worked in and around the areas of life that bring out people's true character...... Military, Law Enf, Medical, Nightclubs, Casinos..... Nobody can tell me that "people are basically good" anymore. There are some good folks, but we are far outnumbered, and most people that "seem" like good folk show their true colors when put under certain conditions or stresses.

    I have no faith left for humanity as a whole....... people in general are petty, backstabbing, cowardly, greedy, thieving, uncaring, self centered, self righteous, self important, pieces of crap.

    [fnny] I was just about to say the same thing, Sea.

    Blackjack; I know you've seen the worst in people, but your view saddens me.[angelsad]

    WOW, pg101. Amazing and sad how some people react during a disaster.

    Very nice that you and yours were there to help those in need. Thank you for being part of the solution!
