Tonight, PBS stations across the country will re-broadcast the Law & Disorder documentary. The investigation was produced by FRONTLINE, the New Orleans Times-Picayune and ProPublica and it features our own A.C. Thompson examining the disturbing events that led to the death of Henry Glover. The report also covers several questionable shootings by the NOPD and it broke the news that officers were authorized to shoot looters.

As the story unfolded, federal authorities began their own investigation of what really happened. So far, 16 New Orleans police officers have been charged with crimes exposed in the Law and Disorder cases.
