    Split verdicts for officers accused in post-Katrina killing

    "deprivation of rights under color of law" is a new one for me. It will be interesting to see what the sentences are.

    Hope we can soon put this sad chapter behind us.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    I have mixed feelings about this.
    I'm of a mind to believe that the feds were on a "Witch Hunt" and were going to convict somebody over this to appease a certain segment of the population, no matter the actual facts or merits of the case. On the other hand it is known that New Orleans is rife with corruption. I place little faith in the feds to do the right thing and think that their intrusion in to local matters is an affront to the Constitution.

    But, after reading what they were convicted of, it sure sounds as though they were going out of their way to do what they did, and then cover it up.
    Thats so long as it went down as was reported;;

    Prosectuors contended that Warren fired at Glover from the police station's balcony after he allegedly saw Glover heading toward the station with something in his hand.

    After Glover was shot, bystanders drove the victim to a nearby school looking for help. Instead, the men were allegedly beaten by police officers at the school, who then left the school with a car that had Glover's body in it.

    Ex-Lt. Greg McRae was found guilty on four of five counts, including using a fire to commit a felony -- that is, burning the Chevy Malibu with Glover's body inside the car. The jury convicted him on three counts of deprivation of rights under the color of the law, and found him not guilty on one such count.

    Why did LE fire on an unarmed crowd in the first place? Were they rioting?
    The whole event seems strange to me.
