I am a member of some prison related boards (forums for friends, family members, and support) which does not make this definitive, but during Katrina and the aftermath there was much speculation (and mistrust) about what was happening with the prisoners and how they were/would be treated. Of the cases that I read about (on a board that has 119296 registered members) none went missing and any death or injuries were well documented and explainable. As much as some of the family members wanted to believe the government would take the opportunity to abuse power and to hurt/humiliate/mistreat prisoners, there was no evidence that it had.
