    Ex-cop says he helped cover up Katrina shootings

    A former police detective testified Monday that he participated in a plot to fabricate witnesses, falsify reports and plant a gun to make it seem police were justified in shooting unarmed residents on a New Orleans bridge after Hurricane Katrina.

    Jeffrey Lehrmann, a government witness in the federal trial of five current or former officers, said he saw Sgt. Arthur "Archie" Kaufman retrieve a gun from his home several weeks after the deadly shootings on the Danziger Bridge. Kaufman later turned the gun in as evidence, claiming he found it under the bridge a day after the 2005 shootings that left two people dead and four others wounded.
    Why am I not surprised at this?

    Clearly, apdst is defending both the shooting and the cover-up.

    So, do you have anything to say on the actual topic of this thread?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: Ex-cop says he helped cover up Katrina shootings

    Judging from my work in law enforcement in the last 5 years. I am very surprised.

    But then again, I don't watch all these bs cop fiction tv shows that show crooked cops and take it at face value.


    I mean, if you read the article, those guys obviously weren't professionals at covering **** up.

    I think proper investigation would probably discover what really happened and that should determine what charges, if any, should be filed. I tend not to take "this dude said it happened" at face value.

    The way I see it, several have already plead guilty to the event, the others are being hold outs.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
