President Bush Says There Should Be "Zero-Tolerance" For Hurricane Looters

President Bush says there should be "zero-tolerance" for people breaking the law in hurricane-damaged areas.

He says that goes for looting, price-gouging, insurance fraud, taking advantage of charity or otherwise exploiting the situation. Bush says he's told law officials to pursue lawbreakers.

Bush tells A-B-C people need to "take personal responsibility" to keep the disaster from getting worse.

He says tens of thousands of National Guard members are being deployed to the region to help in the relief.
