We need to demand answers for this, and we also need to demand better treatment for U.S. citizens. If it happened in Louisiana, it could happen in your neighborhood too, is this the future you want for your family and generations to come? Wake up America! Keep these stories in the news!

...hmmmm.... I wonder if being poor and black has anything to do with the way they're being treated...

I think she's lucky to have a trailer provided for her, if my house were to burn down the govt. would not be letting me live in one of their trailers, it would be my responsibility to take care of myself.

if your house burned down Donni, your insurance would cover the loss. Most of the Katrina losses are NOT being covered - including members of Congress who lost their homes. Also, if you lost your home in a large-scale disaster - the government would be required to provide you assistance.

And I'll bet you wouldn't be too proud to take it.

I recently had a friend die back in August. She once lived here, moved to Tenn., and then back home to Louisiana where she died. I saw this so called trailer first hand. Some of her family members were given one and for a family of 5, it was not appropriate. I didn't view this video, I don't think, I could take it. The answer to the question are they treated this way because they are black and poor? That's an understatement. Keeping these stories in the news is not the answer. Pray America. Pray.

THIS IS NO JOKE! This is not a wise crack matter. And now politicization is exploiting the REAL people that really are suffering.
This appeared in an article in the Baton Rouge Advocate yesterday. The immediate following text is an excerpt. The entire artice is below.

- - - -They have slept in 35 different beds since the hurricane, she said, the last one at a friend’s residence in Tickfaw.

Cambre said she lost her home in St. Bernard to 25 feet of flood water and her home in Hammond to a fallen tree. She has been fighting with insurance companies for settlements ever since.

“If you can’t get any money, then you can’t build a new home,” she said.- - - - - -

Katrina couple to get mobile home

By DEBRA LEMOINE

Published: Mar 8, 2007



PONCHATOULA — After Susie Cambre lost her homes in St. Bernard Parish and Hammond to Hurricane Katrina, she stood in line at every nonprofit agency to help find a place to live.

On Wednesday, Cambre said, that persistence paid off.

She and her husband, Lloyd, will be among the first to live in one of two mobile homes donated by the federal government to Strike Two Ministries, a nonprofit in Ponchatoula.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency donates to nonprofits or local governments surplus mobile homes and campers used as temporary housing for people whose homes are destroyed in natural disasters, said Roman Napoli, FEMA special assistant to the director for Louisiana Recovery.

So far, 11 nonprofit groups have applied for the trailers in Louisiana, he said.

Strike Two Ministries in Ponchatoula is the first recipient in the state, he said.

On Wednesday, two of the eight refurbished FEMA trailers promised to Strike Two were set up on the nonprofit’s property to house displaced families.

The trailers offer three bedrooms and 820 square feet of living space. They come furnished with a tan sofa and chair, end tables, a dining room table and three beds.

Strike Two plans to allow the Cambres and another family to live in the trailers for up to a year, said Connie Dotey, the organization’s president. During that period, the families will work with other agencies to purchase land and eventually move their FEMA trailer to that newly purchased property.

Each family buys its trailer from Strike Two for the cost of moving and installing the trailer on their land, a cost estimated to be under $5,000, Dotey said.

Napoli said the only requirements FEMA has for recipients of its donated trailers is that they must have lost their home to a natural disaster, and that their home remains uninhabitable a year after the storm.

It is up to the nonprofit to manage the transfer of ownership to the recipient and pay for any upkeep, such as maintenance and insurance.

Cambre, who was not present at the news conference marking the donation but talked about the transaction by phone, said that she and her husband finally will have a place to live. They have slept in 35 different beds since the hurricane, she said, the last one at a friend’s residence in Tickfaw.

Cambre said she lost her home in St. Bernard to 25 feet of flood water and her home in Hammond to a fallen tree. She has been fighting with insurance companies for settlements ever since.

“If you can’t get any money, then you can’t build a new home,” she said.

Cambre has worked for the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office for 17 years and is known as “Deputy Susie” to schoolchildren. Her husband is a jazz drummer.

And the sad part is that now time is running out for these people to rebuild their homes and the land grab is on, greedy land developers, real estate investors and others are chomping and drooling to get their hands on choice pieces of real estate in this area. What a set up! The insurers refuse to pay, people loose their properties and the rich get richer!!

Sebbyy, perhaps you should do some research on real estate investments, profits and loss.....maybe then you will see why these investors and developers are so interested in these "choice" pieces of real estate.....location, location, location....I'm an "x" top listing a top selling real estate agent....I know what I'm talking about.

What exactly is being accomplished here conversing back and forth about what you know, what you don't know and what is currently taking place? It seems to me that you should be taking some type of action. Gee, a PETITION! Get a PETITION going and help these people. There are enough of us on this website where it would make a difference. I will start by sending letter's to Oprah, and Tyler Perry. What will you do? Conversing about here does nothing. MOVE!!! God Bless......

i find it silly that people can actually believe in this, if something like this really happened as being described " a goverment agency that has provided help in rebuilding, food, and health care for victims of the kartina disaster." there would be much more obvious signs then just a few poor people saying they are trapt and kept here. how could they possibly not get out and go to another state? if so it would be found out and america would not take it.
Reason for people not being provided coverage for their insurance is simple, most didnt have it, second it took us 10 years to develop and add plenty of homes in areas, all of it was destroyed in a about a week, its going to take a lot more then 5 years to possibly even come close to rebuilding what once was.
