Seems there was a shootout on a bridge just recently. 5-6 dead. Folks carrying weapons met police. Who knows what happens, hopefully they were all criminals not friendly fire.

On a normal day, this would be the lead story on CNN. Today, it's just another crawl at the bottom of the screen.

AP: Contractors shot by police

Police shot eight people carrying guns on a New Orleans bridge Sunday, killing five or six, The Associated Press reported.

A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers told AP that the people shot were some of its contractors on their way to repair a canal. The contractors were walking across a bridge on their way to launch barges into Lake Pontchartrain to fix the 17th Street Canal, said John Hall, a spokesman for the Corps.

Earlier Sunday, New Orleans Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley told the AP that police shot at eight people, killing five or six. The shootings took place on the Danziger Bridge, which spans a canal connecting Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River.

No other details were immediately available.

If they were indeed contractors (I hope it was Blackwater), I bet a bit of profiling would have stopped the incident from happening.


Flame suit on, but you know where I'm coming from.
