Prisoners in New Orleans city jail were 'abandoned'

According to a Human Rights watch group prisoners in the New Orleans city Jail were abandon and left to fend for themselves without water or food for four days. 517 prisoners at the facilities are still listed as missing, and law enforcement authorities have no idea if they escaped or simply perished.

"It was complete chaos," a veteran prison guard concurred. Of the people housed in Templeman III he commented: "Ain't no tellin' what happened to those people."
