FBI Raids New Orleans Police Homicide Division

Ronald Madison, shot to death on the Danziger Bridge
FBI agents raided the New Orleans Police Department homicide division on Thursday looking for files and evidence relating to the killings of several African Americans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. One case involved the shooting of six people by local police on the Danziger Bridge which resulted in two deaths, and the other involved the mysterious death of Henry Glover. A local resident said he found Glover with a gunshot wound to the chest amid the flooding and lawlessness that followed Katrina, but when he drove the wounded man to police, authorities seized his car, along with Glover, whose remains were later found in the burned out shell of the car parked behind the 4th District police station. The FBI raid comes at the same time that the Department of Justice is conducting a federal grand jury investigation looking into both incidents.

Blackwater was guarding some private citizens homes who had things like art collections they wanted to protect. The cops involved in the shoot out where going around in a van with ski masks looting. Blackwater engaged them. This is according to Robert Young Pelton. I would believe it, since it is common to hear in Houston about the corruption of the New Orleans Police Department.

This is about some mysterious contractors who shot a couple of nosy kids, the New Orleans police showed up, and there was a massive firefight. A helicopter (Blackwater) came to the rescue, and it was shot down. Before it could flare up, someone had the cops arrested and charged them with murder, to assure they wouldn't talk. "On Sunday, a helicopter that had been involved in rescue operations crashed northwest of New Orleans. No evacuees were on board the Eurocopter AS 332 Super Puma and the pilot and crew were rescued safely, according to an official with Helinet Aviation Services, which had a chopper flying above the crash site." That chopper was a Puma-321, a military type. You don't jail seven cops just over a Katrina shooting. Seven cops didn't shoot two mentally handicapped Blacks. But there was a shootout, it happened at the Danziger Bridge, and there were contractors involved. Whatever the incident, the cops are now threatened with murder charges if they talk. Here Is A Likely Scenario Cops came across a group of demolition experts, who were doing something to the bridge. One was removing a charge that was intended to collapse the bridge, the cops confronted them, and there was a shoot-out. The original plan was to stick 20,000 blacks in the superdome, and let the roof collapse, but Katrina veered. The blacks would try and make it to the bridge, but it was to have an 'accident', similar to the levees. With no bridge, there would be mass casualties.
