Calling the crimes inexcusable and barbaric, a judge sentenced two former New Orleans police officers to prison Thursday for their roles in the shooting death of an unarmed man whose body was later set on fire in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina....
Five current or former police officers were found guilty Friday of deprivation of rights and other civil rights violations tied to fatal shootings on New Orleans' Danziger Bridge in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, federal prosecutors said.
A federal judge Wednesday sentenced five former New Orleans police officers to prison terms ranging from six to 65 years for the shootings of unarmed civilians in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, prosecutors said.
The ex-officers were convicted in August on a combined 25 counts of civil rights violations in the shootings, which occurred on the Danziger Bridge on September 4, 2005, six days after much of New Orleans went underwater when the powerful hurricane slammed into the Gulf Coast.
Most sugar-loving cops get their doughnuts by strolling into a shop or by taking the squad car. But when you really need to munch on some sprinkles, there is a time when only a helicopter will meet your transportation needs.
Witnesses say two cops used a police chopper to buy a box of doughnuts from Krispy Kremes. The helicopter costs taxpayers about £40 an hour, but that didn't stop the pair swooping in for a snack.
I love the show and agree with Ian and Mark about 90% of the time... but what really pisses me off is when Ian ridicules people for suggesting that HAARP may be responsible for some of the earthquakes, Katrina, etc.... Ian says he did a lot of research on the subject, but failed to mention the sec. of defense William Cohen's comment about weather weapons???
Poorly trained cop beats woman in IHOP after he slaps her and she hits him. There are at least two angles of this event (here's the other: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pw-bEwEUvI ).
This again comes via a social media site for cops, with lots of comments by other cops. It's pathetic and rife with remarkable quips. The big question is: What are the details of why the cops were called in the first place? The big lesson is: Get out of private property if the owner requests you do so, and run if the cops are called.
