Frontline (US) :: Law & Disorder (28x21)
FRONTLINE investigates several questionable shootings by police in the days following Hurricane Katrina, raising new questions about the actions of some officers -- and their command structure -- during the aftermath of the storm.
After Katrina, New Orleans Cops Were Told They Could Shoot Looters In the chaotic days after Hurricane Katrina, an order circulated among New Orleans police authorizing officers to shoot looters, according to present and former members of the New Orleans Police Department.
It's not clear how broadly the order was communicated. Some officers who heard it say they refused to carry it out. Others say they understood it as a fundamental change in the standards on deadly force, which allow police to fire only to protect themselves or others from what appears to be an imminent physical threat.
