How do you feel about taking

another human being's life?

Well, like my daddy always said,

it's better be judged by 12

than carried by six.

And what did he do? He...

You know what he did.

He was a hero.

The vast majority of

New Orleans, Louisiana, is underwater.

Tens of thousands of homes

and businesses are beyond repair.

We're dealing

with one of the worst

natural disasters

in out nation's history.

The mayor, Ray Nagin,

has ordered almost every one

of the city's 1500 police officers

to leave their search and rescue mission

and return to the streets

to stop people

from taking goods

from stores and businesses.

Jesus. Is that Kenny?


What the hell was your partner

doing here?

I don't know. We got separated

a couple days ago.

I've been down in the 9th Ward

since it hit.

People are trapped in there

like rats.

They never got half of them out

before the flood waters rose.


Come on, help me.

Your late partner,

Mr. Kenny Cowlings...


- Was he...?

- Was he what?

You tell me.

Was he dirty?

Ma'am, if Kenny was dirty,

I would have killed him.


I've got a floater.

I'm gonna need some pickup.

All looters will be shot.

Get away from the store.

All looters will be shot.

Stupid motherfucker, you can't even

carry that TV. Freeze!

- Let's get the f*ck out of here.

What the f*ck? Metro PD.

What the f*ck are you doing?

- Stand down.

- Get your ass down from there.

I'm just doing my job.

- Stand down.

- You get your ass down off that roof.

Come in here

and clean your mess up.

We're all in this shit together.

What the f*ck is the matter with you?

- Get off the roof.

- Stand down.

I will not. You stand down.

I'm just doing my job.

You get your ass down from there.

No, I will not.

You do your job.

- You just shot that man for no reason.

- He deserved it.

- Hey.

- Stan Johnson, 5th Ward.

- You a cop?

- Private security.

- He ain't no cop.

- I got this. You a cop killer?

You're pointing your gun at an officer.

Put that gun down.

- Stand down.

- Put it down.

- Andy Deveraux.

- Nice to meet you. Stan Johnson.

- Where's your partner?

- He left when the water got deep?

Yeah, mine stayed.

- Where are you from?

- Chicago. I just transferred.

Lucky you.

Yeah, right? Lucky me.

That guy shot that man for no reason.

The Big Easy

ain't so easy anymore.

As the ferocious

hurricane Katrina

drew a bead on their precariously

sited city and suburbs,

metropolitan New Orleans residents

prayed for salvation...

The death toll

from Hurricane Katrina

continues to climb dramatically.

Entire communities have been wiped out.

And residents of New Orleans

are now being told

they may not be able to return

to what's left of their city for months.

The number of dead

in the devastated city

could well be into the thousands.

Conditions continue to deteriorate

after two levies broke

sending water coursing

through the streets.

An estimated 80% of the city which lies

below sea level is underwater...

We are facing a storm

that most of us have feared.

I do not want to create panic,

but I do want the citizens to understand

that this is very serious.

That's why we've taken this

unprecedented move.

Every person is hereby ordered

to immediately evacuate

the City of New Orleans.

Truckloads of water,

ice, meals, medical supplies,

generators, tents and tarpaulins.

There are currently over 1700

trailer trucks

which have been mobilized to move

these supplies into position.

The Coast Guard has worked heroically

for the last 48 hours,

rescuing or assisting well more
