Re: Should Local Authorities be Able to Arrest People who don't Obey Mandatory Evacuation Orders?

Absolutely Not! Mandatory Evacuation is to protect the majority. Well, what if you have been preparing yourself, your family, and loved ones to be self sufficient, should an emergency arise. Should I feel I can be protected better than I can protect myself--I think not! Of course as always..there are many who simply act as "sheep" and if told to leave their home, possessions, and valuables..they will. I for one, hope that I will not have too... Mainly because I feel I have already been mandated with the "GET READY.GOV instructions, and other sites, to have already planned and prepared ahead of time for such emergencies that might require evacuations… I feel Americans are fools not too have headed the Get Ready Warning!
