FRONTLINE, ProPublica and the New Orleans Times-Picayune have teamed up in a unique investigative collaboration to try and find some answers.
We're taking a fresh look at six cases of violent encounters between police and civilians in the days after the levees broke[ during Katrina]. Federal investigators also are looking into a number of these cases. We have five reporters on the beat, and our investigation will continue to unfold online in the coming months, with documents, text and video updates as we learn more.
But we want your help -- if you have any knowledge of these cases, call our tip line [504-826-3775], or e-mail us.
