National Guard Turns away Garberville Aid Bus-Katrina

but its good news
During hurricane katrina a bus filled with medical supplies and aid responded immediately to katrina (as fast as they could)
about a week after the hurricane hit furthurs cousin burger bus showed up with grub. National Guard turned away aid orginazations. This was put together by garberville vets for peace (i think, sorry!)
while the guard (from what i hear) shot at people trying to escape the doomed city by foot.
