Five New Orleans Cops Sentenced For Katrina Shootings

Common Dreams staff

Five New Orleans police officers were sentenced on Wednesday to between six and 65 years in prison for their roles in the shootings of unarmed residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Kartina in 2005. The 'Danziger Bridge' shootings came to symbolize a culture of lawlessness by the New Orleans Police Department and resulted in the death of two civilians and left four wounded.
