My first days on the job at NOPD
introduced me to a different, violent kind of death: a murdered man slumped over in a pickup truck; the slaughter of five teenagers by a 19-year-old; a suicide by hanging.
By having the National Guard patrol these few isolated neighborhoods, the NOPD

Two images I Can't get out of my mind: Two uniformed NOPD
officers, bumping elbows with teenage looters, while they up shopping carts with high-end cosmetics and designer shoes in a wrecked store.

Kaufman and Dugue are also accused of holding a meeting, in an abandoned and gutted out NOPD
building, at which homicide sergeants instructed officers involved in the shooting to get their stories straight before giving formal audiotaped statements about the shooting.
Shouting "I'm NOPD
[New Orleans Police Department]," the plainclothesmen hustled Maestri and Jacques into their cars and away from St.
