The Haitian Government does not have the capacity to deal with the crisis of the living, let alone the dead.  As a seasoned funeral director this photo shocks me. I thought the human race was done with this sort of  Auschwitz photo.

In Haiti the dead need to buried quickly for the living to survive. Disease must be prevented. There will be no funeral ceremony for many Haiti Earthquake dead

Steve Yoder, who is an administrator at the Menonite mission called Christian Aid Ministries in Titanyen, choked back tears as he viewed the heaps of bodies.

This is heart-breaking,” he said. “It’s very grim. It’s very sad. But in this situation that’s the best that can be done.”

    Bull crap. Japan did a much better job of burying their loved one’s in mass graves. They even had coffins, names and are planning for this to be “temporary”. The Haitians had no such respect from their corrupt, uncaring government controlled by the corrupt United States. No one cares about the black people of the world, and they are forced into a position to not even help themselves. Everytime Haiti tries to help itself, the U.S. steps in to sabotage the situation like they did with Aristide and interring with Chavez attempting to help them with oil revenue from his country. It’s a sad, sickening and maddening.
