In their defense

if they were to just "go out into the street" the aid workers would be beaten and looted, then the looters would be beaten and looted. There needs to be a structured system to dispense. Yes, people will die while they get their sh*t together, but that evil is less than the assured violence of a few strong, "healthy", machete wielding men possibly killing the workers and not getting ANY of the looted supplies to the people who need it most. Its a bad situation. Hopefully something will be learned and applied to the next disaster- and there will be a next disaster.
