7 NEW ORLEANS POLICE OFFICERS INDICTED FOR SHOOTING RESIDENTS DURING KATRINA!

SOME COPS ARE IN BIG TROUBLE IN THE CRESCENT CITY!

Seven police officers were indicted Thursday on murder or attempted murder charges in shootings on a bridge that left two people dead during the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Three of the seven New Orleans policemen indicted include Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, and Ofc. Michael Hunter. The district attorney portrayed the officers as trigger happy. “We cannot allow our police officers to shoot and kill our citizens without justification like rabid dogs,” District Attorney Eddie Jordan said. The shootings took place under murky circumstances six days after the storm and became one of the most widely cited examples of the anarchy that gripped New Orleans after Katrina. Two young men were killed and four people wounded on the Danziger Bridge, which spans the Industrial Canal and connects the Gentilly neighborhood with eastern New Orleans. At the time, the sweltering city was littered with corpses. Rescuers were still evacuating flood-stranded residents from the rooftops of their homes, and looters ransacked stores. On Thursday, state District Judge Raymond Bigelow gave the indicted officers 24 hours to surrender. He said there would be no bond for the four accused of first-degree murder, which carries a possible death sentence. For the other officers, the bond will be $100,000 per count, Bigelow said.
