NEW ORLEANS — Lingering memories from Hurricane Katrina were evident in New Orleans as residents considered the acquittal of ex-cop David Warren.

Warren was freed Wednesday after a jury found him not guilty in the shooting of an apparently unarmed man amid the city's 2005 post-Hurricane Katrina bedlam.
Warren was convicted in the death three years ago but won a retrial after an appeals court ruled he should not have been tried with others implicated in an alleged cover-up that included the burning of victim Henry Glover's body.
Opinions about the case varied Thursday in New Orleans.
