That's nice.

"Today, about 3,000 of the trailers — which cost federal taxpayers $20,000 each — remain in use in Texas. So far, about 1,200 have suffered so much vandalism they had to be sent to FEMA repair centers in Texas and Arkansas, Jacks said."

I liked the idea of using the trailer as a hunting cabin!! The same old story, no personal investment = lack of care. And I suppose if some of these people had apartments, the results would have been the same, although can't see taking an apartment hunting, or trucking it to Louisana to sell.

Since FEMA is the landlord, why don't they perform random inspections?

You forget that is probalby illegal as to privacy and other laws.
I wouldn't doubt that they saw the FEMA trailers as temporary, and I wouldn't doubt that some figured if they ruined their trailer they would get first dibs on permanant housing. That some used them for making meth, well if you lost everything, and despirate for $$$'s, making such drugs if you don't get caught can pay for your wants or needs. Problem is that meth making is EXTREMELY dangerous, making any site a severe toxic waste dump. Anybody who makes meth and gets caught ought to be sent to jail for many years, inellegible for any government help for the rest of their lives and billed for fines of $100,000+ for their crimes.

I am not surprised at all to hear this. Why the hell are the US tax payers paying $20,000 each for those shitty little trailers? Hell we bought almost 5,000 of them, dont we get some sort of volume discount?
It seems there is an enforcement problem as well, why have only 5 people been evicted? Just more evidence the response to the hurricanes have been botched...but what the hell....your doin a heck of a job Bushy!

I often wonder if it would have been best both for the taxpayers (obviously) and the actual victims for the government to do absolutely nothing, instead of a kinda half-assed attempt at fixing nothing.

They're supposed to, but remember.....it's FEMA  wink  .....you'd be surprised how many of them down here came up substandard off the assembly line.....more than one person has died from propane explosions within them. People I know in them use hot plates and electrical space heaters in lieu of propane.

When you give trailers out in the "redneck/hick" states your bound to get some trash in the trailers. "Trailer trash" as we call it. These people have no gratitude for the help they recieved. Instead of taking it as a blessing for their family to live in they have to turn it into a drug lab or other trashy place. Of course, when they are returned they will be full of confederate flags, beer cans and snuff.

It is my opinion that those making meth in the FEMA trailers were probably in that line of "work" prior to the hurricane.

And this is supposed to be a newsflash?

Hell, those FEMA trailers were probably the "nicest" home some of those displaced persons ever lived in, I've seen places in the Lower 9th Ward in NOLA . . . . I've seen more appealing outhouses . . . . so to say they've been vandalized or destroyed by the occupants is no surprise at all . . . .

And used as Meth Labs . . . .again, another no surprise. Easy to make, cheap to make, great return on investment . . . . no sense in getting a REAL job, just make meth and continue to live off the government dole . . . . it's the US way!!!  irked  grumpy

Well I am not surprised. My mom is a CIRI share holder, I need to get around to getting some of that stock from her.
