NOLA.com 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.
