Five New Orleans police officers were convicted of shooting six unarmed people, one of whom was Ronald Madison, on the Danziger Bridge six days after Hurricane Katrina.
As Reported By The Associated Press:
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. The four who had been charged with civil rights violations in the shootings were convicted on all counts.
However, the jury didn’t find that Brisette or Faulcon’s shootings amounted to murder.
