NOPD 6th District Katrina video

Members of the New Orleans Police Department's 6th District posted a video at Muzility.com (hat tip to The Times-Picayune).

The actual WMV file is here, but I haven't figured out how to copy the file for the sake of posterity. For others who might be thinking the same thing, the video's producers appear in a credit roll at the end of the video. I suppose you could call the 6th District and ask for them by name.

11/02/05 update: Talking to a 6th District acquaintence yesterday, I learned that some official bugaboo ordered that the Muzility link be taken down, but the video can still be viewed by accessing the file directly.

That was tough to watch. I can't imagine how people living through it must have felt. Or how you are getting by day by day. Wow.

Cyber hugs to everyone down there, especially you and your family.

Sorry so late to reply Mixter.

I keep thinking I need to write a post to explain, but never do.

Basically, things Uptown are improving every day. The rest of the city remains a friggin' disaster, and no one seems to have a plan.

I'm working, so is Mrs. Schroeder, but there are ensuing complications in the details that I ought not to enter into.

Power has been on for the last week and a half, but no gas (cold showers and MREs). A few neighbors have moved back and that helps enormously with the sense of security, because when you peer beyond the lit streets of our little enclave, and look up the side streets, you can see where the line of renewal becomes the boundary into darkness and fear.

Hi, I know its been a while since you posted the video but I was wondering if there was anyway you could send the video to me directly. I'm doing a research project on the NOPD and it would be great to have. My email is mford3@lsu.edu. Thanks.
