Danzinger Bridge Update--6 Federal Indictments updates its Danzinger Bridge story with the report of the federal indictment of 6 current New Orleans police in the investigation into the murder of black citizens of greater-New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.  The New York Times also has coverage of Attorney General Eric Holder's remarks announcing these charges.  Some of the indicted officers face potential death penalty sentences.

We looked at this story in March and it will continue to play out for years.  The murders by the police and the subsequent cover up by police officials is the big story of abuse of police power during our lifetime.

  1. You just can't trust any policeman pig (OK maybe in New Orleans). These losers shot and killed two (some shot in the back), shot 4 others, and the civilians were unarmed. These losers then planted guns and covered up their mistakes with lies and intimidations. This year Five police officers already have pleaded guilty to lying and covering up. The Bush Administration did nothing. Lets hope all of these pigs get whats coming to them.
