Spike Lee is currently filming in South Mississippi for a new documentary, “If God is Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise,” which is reported to be a follow-up to “When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts.” The first film was very enlightening as it opened my eyes to many events that occurred during a time when communication was nonexistent in South Mississippi. We heard rumors of shootings and such but never anything about how the people in NOLA were treated. That was such a horrific series of events and I couldn’t begin to imagine what it was like for the people stranded in the Superdome.
It is truly a sad time when a contractor or framer can commit fraud or damage to your property and not be criminally liable. The framer that we hired so far has cost us over $40,000.00 in repairs to his work, materials and additional construction time. Almost ALL work done by he and his crew had to be removed, the existing structure repaired, and then rebuilt. He committed fraud by giving us false information and damaged our property, yet he is not held accountable by the Mississippi State Attorney Generals Office. WHY??? It seems to be a rather common occurrence.
Katrina destroyed our home, FEMA destroyed our spirit, and a dishonest contractor destroyed our faith in humanity…
We Need Help!!!
We survived Hurricane Katrina only to become victims of contractor fraud and FEMA’s negligence. Because of this, we do not have enough money to finish our house and are absolutely desperate for help. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
