In The “No Surprise Here” Dept…

I followed this story and never believed the police version of the events.  It seems that it was all BS.  Just as the claim that water and food could not be delivered to Katrina victims because of “snipers.”  Supplies could not be delivered but they could get Blackwater mercenaries armed to the teeth to patrol the streets. 

Anyway, here is a look at one of the uglier events that occurred after Hurricane Katrina:

Ex-Cop Pleads Guilty In Hurricane Katrina Killing Probe: 2 Shot, Killed On Danzinger Bridge

 In Hurricane Katrina’s chaotic aftermath, police shot six people – killing two – as they crossed a bridge in search of food. For years the case was a shocking symbol of the confusion and violence that swept through the flooded city. On Wednesday it became a mark of shame for the police department.

As victims’ relatives watched from the courtroom gallery, a retired lieutenant who supervised the department’s probe of the shootings pleaded guilty to orchestrating a cover-up to conceal that police gunned down unarmed civilians.

Michael Lohman, a 21-year veteran of the force, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to obstruct justice. Prosecutors said Lohman and other unidentified officers conspired to fabricate witness statements, falsify reports of the incident and plant a gun in an attempt to make it appear the killings were justified.

Still I can not get over how a city in the USA was treated like a third world nation after a major disaster.  Even though this happened by local cops I blame GW Bush for his destroying FEMA by filling it with party hacks and for his complete failure to get aid and bring order to the survivors.  Everything that followed from the lack of care and inactivity of the Bush administration is directly on his head.

Now I hope these cops go  to jail and never take a free step again.  If only GW could join  them.
