Loss of law & order

Things sound pretty bad in New Orleans, hopefully they can get some food/water in there soon.


NEW ORLEANS -- What police presence there is in New Orleans and Biloxi, Miss., isn't slowing down looters.
A police spokesman in New Orleans said a police officer was shot in the head by a looter, but he's expected to recover.
Dozens of looters on historic Canal Street have ripped open steel gates to stores. Some filled plastic garbage cans to carry or float stolen goods.
In Biloxi, looters picked through slot machines of damaged casinos to see if they still have coins inside.
One motel owner says people are just "filling up garbage bags and walking off like they're Santa Claus."
