Account of New Orleans crime from New Zealand Police Officer

A fascinating read. According to the New Zealander interviewed, only 6 cops remain out of the 200-strong original force. Another cop was shot in the head while intervening in the looting of a store.

UPDATE: OK the Sunday Herald account is a little confusing as it refers to just one Police district. According to the NY Times, ~200 out of 1500 N.O. officers have quit or didn't show up for work.
