One would hope readers and advertisers would eventually catch on to the kind of lazy lifting that would earn middle school students an F. But that hasn’t happened yet.
bystander: I'm not sure why the USA prefers their buses to be painted yellow and parked all day and weekend, rather than off providing transport options for those in the community that could use them, but they do, and providing evidence that other places do it differently will be answered with attacks that you can't imagine the circumstances and no other approach could possibly work.
Davenhill: Well, you never know when you're going to need a huge fleet of yellow school busses to not evacuate a drowning city, following a hurricane.
Brandon Blatcher: That's a cheap shot, started ad spread by conservative rhetoric.
How the hell are kids going to get to school without school buses?
davenhill: Would it also be a cheap shot to remind people that, during Katrina, police officers shot and killed civilians who tried to walk across the bridge from the French Quarter to Algiers?
localroger: It would be a lie. While I don't personally agree with what the Algiers cops did they fired one warning shot over the head of what they saw as a mob heading toward their town. Nobody was killed or even hurt and the DOJ ultimately ruled that their actions were legal.
You may be confusing the Algiers incident with the Danziger shooting, which is a completely different thing and for which five NOLA cops drew hefty and well-deserved prison sentences.
localroger: The Katrina school bus trope is also overblown...
Almost every single person in America has access to basic food, clothing, water and sanitation. I haven't been to states like Louisiana and cities like Detroit, but from what I can tell, nobody is scrambling for the basic necessities required for sustenance.
