Well, this does bring it closer to home

Just heard on the radio: a group of Dutch tourists were shot at by the police or the military (this wasn't clear from the fragment) in New Orleans, in what they claim was an attempt to stop them from leaving. They're out now, alive and well, but not happy with how they've been treated. I missed this in the papers, and, as often with Dutch news, can't find references online, but it fits a pattern in which British visitors were discriminated against in the evacuation (Via). Why are Americans shooting at Dutch tourists? Is it true that foreigners in the US have no rights?

I said I'd shut up, but there's so much to be angry about.
