With all the hate going around, individual examples fade from memory, but let us revisit the time when Crawford Caligula was fiddling, New Orleans was drowning, and Brownie was doing a “heck of a job.” If you remember, police murdered two unarmed black citizens on the Danziger Bridge. Friday, the beginning of justice arrived, long overdue after almost six years.

Morning, Tom... I was reading about this earlier, and you know what? I hope they not only throw the book at them, but the bench as well. Too many times, that "thin blue line' covers horrendous crimes, and when they do get caught, they receive a slap on the hand and walk away laughing. I don't want to see that happen this time. Even with a conspiracy charge, the one should get a good long time in prison. Conspiracy is one of those crimes it takes very little to convict because the laws are so loosely written [on purpose]. Let's keep our fingers crossed "justice will be served"...

I am VERY surprised this incident wasn't completely covered up. Nice comment Toni.

I'm also surprised this matter has even seen light. Can't wait to see the sentencing.

By subjecting the police officers who are not worthy of their badge to the same kind of treatment any common criminal would receive, we're doing the police officers who ARE worthy of our admiration and respect a big, big favor! A few rotten apples might not "spoil" the whole bunch, but they sure do make you think twice about the apples that surround them.

Thanks, Tom!

I'm waiting for the Head Honchos who incited this kind of behavior to be indicted..Bu$h Leaguers still roam the earth, enabling the bigots, inciting the ignorant, and supplying the hate-mongers.

Thanks everyone. Kudos to Toni and Suzanne.

This saw the light of day, because DOJ stepped in and filed a civil rights complaint, when Republican racists at the state lever refused to indict them for murder.

I am glad that something is being done,even if it took a while.I f injustice is allowed to happen to 1 person because no one spoke up,it makes the authorities more bold,and it could be your rights being violated next.Do not give them a fraction of an inch.

I lived near the bridge and passed over it several times a day. Its was always a nice ecenic view of the simmering lake. Now its just bad memories...
Im glad justice was finally done. I know how hard it was during Katrina, and after. But this is just ugly!
Where is the HUMANITY?

It is horrible to think that the law would be abused in such a way at such a vulnerable time in the lives of those that lived in this horrible situation. . .
For the "law" to abuse and possibly panic is not accepted at this time or any other time. . .the public depends on the law to obtain the peace and pace of order in situations like these. . .

Tom, thanks for bringing this to our attention. You are right about the sentencing being the next important step in the process. Let us hope that JuSTICE will be done.

SImply awful - and I do hope justice will be done - so very often the rich and poweful and connected just get away with it.

People must pay a price or others will think they can also get away with such things... and the price should be very high so that it sticks in peoples minds.
