There are other reasons too. People have been following NOPD police scanners and posting news that the mainstream media refuse to cover:

Some rescue services are refusing to enter due to armed thugs roaming the streets with ak47 assault rifles, carjacking, mugging and murdering people.

Does not sound like a place any sane person would choose to go to. I don't think "risking your life to protect your employer's property" is on the
job description...
