Default Cops Convicted in Post-Katrina Shooting Cover-Up to Get New Trials

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/natio...-trials/69542/

Quote:
A federal judge has overturned the convictions of five New Orleans police officers who were accused of killing two unarmed citizens in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, thanks to "grotesque misconduct" by the prosecutors. U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt has ordered a retrial for all five defendants, a decision that is already re-opening old wounds in a city still torn by the epic mismanagement and misconduct in the wake of the storm.
