Staten Island Resident: We Just Found 3 More Dead Bodies in the Pile Today… (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | November 3,2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 11/03/2012 12:14:29 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Staten Island resident John Tabacco told Neil Cavuto this morning that Staten Island is still alone. ** There is no federal help. ** The feds just drive by with their clipboards. ** We just found three more dead people in the pile this morning.John Tabacco on the situation in Staten Island:

“This morning we’re distributing stuff here and we’re helping people dig out and we hear the sanitation guys scream out that there are bodies in the pile. Everybody jumps on the pile and starts pulling away debris. And, unfortunately, probably not reported right now, it was probably an hour and a half ago, certainly three more people deceased. God bless them… We keep seeing these huge convoys of FEMA and Janet Napolitano and Homeland Security driving by with clipboards writing things down. But there’s not a single soul in the street. We have volunteers and other people coming out giving water from their own homes. People need gloves. People need blankets and you can get to these homes. The question is, where is the government assistance?“

More… ‘It’s like the Wild West’: Lawlessness and fear take over the outer boroughs as they enter sixth day without power ** Residents claim they are the ‘forgotten victims’ of Sandy ** Also say that lack of power and law enforcement means more looting and violent crime ** Those in stricken areas stockpiling weapons like kitchen knives, machetes, and bats to protect themselves ** Coney Island residents say they are forced to ‘scavenge for food like animals’ ** Power unlikely to be returned to Brooklyn, Queen’s and Staten Island until sometime next week Hat Tip Gini

Please give what you can to the Salvation Army or Catholic Charities to help those in need.

I cannot shape coherent comments about this disaster, part of me wants to sympathize with the victims, part of me wants to say something else as they made their bed there, voted there, and are dying there.
Its a bloody shame we cannot get Romney into executive position just hours after he does win the election just so we can get a real leader instead of a falsetto POTUS.

I always give what I can to the Salvation Army for disasters. It seems they get help there better, they just don’t get the recognition.

That’s sad. Sorry Staten Island is going through so much.

Wondering how all those electric cars are doing in those areas? At this point a horse would work best.

The Red cross has 230 Emergency Response Vehicles deployed and have over 250 shelters up an running. Additionally, the Southern Baptist Food service crews that bring their trailers to prepare the food dispensed by the Red Cross ERVs are up and running.

So far the New Jersey food services unions have not turned them away and petty bureaucrats have not made health inspections...... at least to my knowledge. New Jersey has a bad reputation for obnoxious people and down right surly treatment of the volunteers.

It is amazing to me how dependent these people are on the government. You never hear stories like this when more powerful storms hit Florida, the Carolinas, or the Gulf Coast.

There's a reason it's called 'federal bureaucracy'.

Anyone who expected them to actually DO something is just kidding themselves.

Didn’t Bloomburg tell people not to give to the Red Cross.

Where is the President?

Oh, and they refused help from Southern electrical utility crews so I don’t know what they are whining about. The Southern crews are the best anywhere due to practice after tornadoes. Tornadoes destroyed homes in several towns in TN this year and we had power within the week.

Their loss.

They're only dependent on the (predictably incompetent) government in an emergency. Normally they're just dependent on supply-side capitalism.

It wasn’t Bloomberg, it was the borough president of Staten Island.

We are concerned about Staten Island, but the unions turning away help has a miffed, and we are in a conundrum as to whether we should help people that don’t want the assistance.

In the Texas fires and Hurricane Ivan we mostly helped ourselves for many days.

Social networking via Facebook is a great tool if you can get the efforts focused to one or two sites and then get them publicized. Thelocal law enforcement and government officials need to join in on this ASAP.

We had a network that posted a list on the hour of what was needed. Things were dropped off at a collection center outside the disaster zone, repackaged, palleted and then trucked into the disaster area. We moved thousands of tons of materials this way. We only accepted packaged things to eat and clothing was washed before distribution if it was not new.

There are really only a few things that are essential to living... think Maslow... food / water, clothing, shelter... the rest can wait.

I was recently at a wedding there and this is one area where I wouldn’t be surprised if racism played a role. Staten Islanders, from my experience, are the most racist people I have come across, and I am from the South. The are fine with gun grabbing and gays, but they hate ni####s. The N word is actually common vocabulary in a casual conversation. I couldn’t believe it.

This is essentially all the federal government’s fault.

When they say leave, they need to explain what they mean.

leave [leev]

Show IPA verb, left, leav·ing.

verb (used with object)

1. to go out of or away from, as a place: to leave the house.
2. to depart from permanently; quit: to leave a job.

I feel so sorry for those people on the eastern seaboard who didn’t understand do to confusing instructions with such complicated words.

FEMA told us we have to find our own place to live. They will not help us find temporary housing. So far I have reached out to Catholic Charities, my Republican councilman and my Republican Congressman. I am sick to my stomach over this, yet I consider myself lucky because I only lost “things” and not my loved ones or my pets.

Lottie - this is unbelievable! I am here in NJ with no gas but I have an apartment still standing, with heat. From what I can see, there isn’t much of Staten Island that is still standing... How about the Salvation Army? Any local churches still around? Is there a shelter open where you can get a shower?

Well, it sounds like they are finally getting busy instead of staying in what’s left of their houses, waiting for FEMA and suffering.

Finding dead bodies after gulf storms, that is a sad occurance that will happen for a long time to come.

I wonder if the neighbors have figured out who stayed through the storm and is missing yet.

Anyone who can, should get in there and do something to help these people. Sorry to say, they need to move out of the flood waters and rebuild as commuters once electric and sewers are restored. Renters and people with no flood insurance, need to pull up roots and relocate.

Sadly, the liberals are going to try and block their return for agenda 21. That could be why the state and feds are ignoring them.

Never forget edge weapons and hammer-type’weapons. At the same time have gear that can help protect you from them as well.

In reality this is what awaits any part of the country, we are seeing exactly what was predicted would occur. If you think it ain’t coming to your area you’re naive, these people didn’t either. “Not this bad” is their rationalization. Stock up on fuel now. Hydrogen peroxide. White vinegar. Canned goods with meat and beans in them. Get stuff you eat normally and rotate into your supplies. Batteries. Extra clothing, maybe a small pocket sewing machine. Non-power hand tools.

Use coupons and shop on deal days to lower costs further.

The skinny president and the fat governor said everything was under control because they hugged each other......aaaah. Just think that sweet thought when it gets dark again, and colder, and your children are crying for hunger.

Government is so totally worthless and is paying off the connected with trillions of dollars that belong to us.

You never hear stories like this when more powerful storms hit Florida, the Carolinas, or the Gulf Coast.

From the Rockies to the Great Lakes the Northern tier of states routinely gets pasted almost every winter with blizzards and Alberta clippers. We're used to it, we dig out and check our neighbors, hunker down and prepare for the next one.

I've lived in this area for all my life and have never seen FEMA or any other government agency distributing freebies. The only time we hear from Uncle Sam is when it's tax time, otherwise, we are forgotten (and we like it that way!)

The Salvation Army is my favorite "person charity, too."

I can still remember as a kid of maybe 12 when my mother warned me about the Red Cross. It seems that they were, in her opinion, a charity that wanted your bucks and your recognition and their assistance was close to nothing, whereas the SA is an organization which is on the ground and helping.

“He doesn’t need votes in NY, NJ or CT.”

Now if you were in OH or CO, you’d have FEMA’s deluxe package of home delivery pizza, laundry delivery and maid service. Too bad.

My parish is helping a lot. So are the others as well as the Protestant fellowships. It is so scary. I am heart sick. FEMA IS TOTALLY USELESS. My husband is so freaking stubborn. He actually believes that I am willing to go back into that hellhole once it is cleaned up. There is no way on earth that I will especially since we have been flooded in the past. Pray for all the victims of hurricane Sandy. We are going to need all the prayers we can get.

"FEMA told us we have to find our own place to live. They will not help us find temporary housing."

It's not FEMA's job to "help" -- they "manage" disasters (check out their name) -- to get the most political mileage out of them...

At the fires here in Texas, they reportedly turned away fire equipment with trained crews -- so they could bring in their own identical equipment and say, "Look what FEMA did!"

At least one local sheriff threatened to lock up the whole lot of them if they didn't get the h3!! out of the way...

Did I read that Staten Island is about 4 feet above sea level? If that is true why didn’t these people evacuate?

They were told for a week that the biggest baddest storm ever was headed right for them and it went right were they were told it would go.
