Police convicted of murder coverup after Katrina

A FEDERAL JURY in the US has convicted five current or former police officers of involvement in deadly shootings on a New Orleans bridge after Hurricane Katrina.

A federal jury on Friday convicted five current or former police officers in the deadly shootings on a New Orleans bridge after Hurricane Katrina. All five officers were convicted of charges stemming from the cover-up of the shootings.

Prosecutors contended during the five-week federal trial that officers shot unarmed people without justification and without warning, killing two and wounding four others on Sept. 4, 2005, then embarked on a cover-up involving made-up witnesses, falsified reports and a planted gun. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/08/05/jury-reaches-verdict-in-hurricane-katrina-shootings-trial/?test=latestnews

Katrina was a “dry run” to see how martial law would go on a local basis; what will they do if there is a national emergency?
