Just flashed on the news on Fox. Says that police in NO shot and killed 5 people carrying guns. Not much discussion as to where or when. Just that it happened.

Guess they weren't kidding huh?

If the police shot 5 armed looters, no problem. If the police shot five people merely because they had guns, that's a problem.
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 1:07:20 PM EDT
now fox is flashing 8 armed men shot, no details.
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 1:08:01 PM EDT
I hope it was bad guys carrying guns, and not good guys carrying guns. Don't assume it was looters. It could have been citizens carrying for self-defense purposes, and didn't want their guns confiscated.

oh boy, either way this could have some bad repercussions... (remembering that this is a Holiday weekend and the alcohol will be flowin tonight...)

(Note: shooting looters is not bad - just that some may use it as an excuse to "fire up" their own neighborhoods)

Its on their website now.

At this juncture I will give the officers the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully it will turn out to be a situation where the people who were killed were gangbangers, not ordinary citizens trying to protect themselves.

It said they were shot on the bridge so we can rule out that they were defending their houses.

Multiple shootings on duty, no details?
Cut the crap. At least give us a stock press release 'appropriate use of force by officers'.

I have a bad feeling about this. I fear it was probably 8 law abiding citizens, possibly refusing to disarm themselves....

That would be horrific. If anything like that occurs, we will see the next big controversy. You know all the usual liberal suspects will cheer if self-reliant armed Americans get shot.

Awaiting details...

Get some ordinary, law abiding citizens who have armed themselves to protect themselves or property?

Get some gangbangers?

If it's the latter, GET SOME INDEED! If it's the former, you need to eat those badly chosen words.

I believe they were thugs controlling the bridge, robbing and hi-jacking people trying to escape the city.

I believe it will turn out to be a good shoot. We'll see.

Making wild guesses or are these informed guesses?
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 2:06:52 PM EDT
They just had another story about it. No new news, but while they reported the story they played a tape of a LEO with a M1 Carbine
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 2:07:38 PM EDT
CBS top of the hour news feed the local AM station just aired said Army Corp of Engineers are saying it was their contractors that got shot on the bridge by the cops

Hope you are right. It would make sense. There is total anarchy there.
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 2:07:51 PM EDT
Ok, NOLA cops shoot 8 folks...

Given the attitude of their Mayor/Governor, they probably were required to beg 'pretty please drop your weapons' for 10-15min before they could engage...

I doubt it's a bad shoot...
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 2:08:42 PM EDT
If they were carrying looted police weapons, then ooops, too bad.

FOX IS SAYING CONTRACTORS (BLACKWATER I BELIEVE) WERE SHOT. They were protecting the Army Corp of Engineers.
Link Posted: 9/4/2005 2:09:12 PM EDT
Local news here said the armed men were shooitng at the cops...dunno if it was LEO or NG's taking these guys down. Something tells me it was the famed AR that did the deed.

Fox now saying contract engineers shot and killed while crossing bridge. Developing...

THey just said the Army Corp of Engineer contractors lost a few people from gunbfire on a bridge today.
