What were they afraid of, part II.

The NYTimes has another, longer and more detailed, piece up showing that most of the reports of violent crime after Katrina were simply false.

Represetative quote:
During six days when the Superdome was used as a shelter, the head of the New Orleans Police Department's sex crimes unit, Lt. David Benelli, said he and his officers lived inside the dome and ran down every rumor of rape or atrocity. In the end, they made two arrests for attempted sexual assault, and concluded that the other attacks had not happened.
