Sherrif Lee Takes Over Walmart

Jefferson Parish Sherrif Harry Lee, whom I remember on the news reports before Katrina hit saying his daughter in California was begging him to wear a life jacket through the entire ordeal, has "comandeered" a gaggle of Walmart stores in his parish that FEMA prevented from re-opening. In fact, he offered to arrest any FEMA official that gets in his way.
Lee said he gave handwritten notes to Wal-Mart stores in Harvey and Kenner saying they were ordered to open as soon as possible. Lee said Parish President Aaron Broussard agreed with the decision. Lee said anyone from FEMA who tries to close either store will be arrested by deputies.

Now THAT I would like to see.
