Via TalkLeft we learn that Doctors Killed Patients Out of Mercy:
Doctors working in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans killed critically ill patients rather than leaving them to die in agony as they evacuated hospitals, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. With gangs of rapists and looters rampaging through wards in the flooded city, senior doctors took the harrowing decision to give massive overdoses of morphine to those they believed could not make it out alive.
These are the consequences of poor planning. I'm not saying who I blame, just that these patients should have been evacuated days before landfall.
