Law & Disorder: The Missteps of NOPD After Katrina

We talked this week with A.C. Thompson, one of the reporters from ProPublica who has been investigating the New Orleans Police Department in the years since Hurricane Katrina. He has been exploring reports of specific acts of excessive force used by the department, as well as the factors that could have created a culture where such abuse could exist.

His work is part of a Frontline report airing Wednesday called “Law and Disorder.”
