The actions to "get the city back", started....
Police have shot eight people carrying guns on a New Orleans bridge.

At least five of those are dead, according to Deputy Police Chief WJ Riley.

Mr Riley said the shootings took place on the Danziger Bridge, which connects Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River.

He said he had no other details.

As expected, I'm afraid... Trigger-happy, nervous officers pushed hard due to the amount of work after Katarina.. It's not against the law to own a gun in N.O is it? Wouldn't be surprised if they were just gunned down before even getting a chance to explain WHY they were carrying guns.. Wondering how the "official" story will be...

I also posted this in the ATSNN thread...


If you were in New Orleans right now and owned a gun would you not be visibly "carrying" it?

I hope to hell these people were shooting at the cops, or else it was just shooting fish in a barrel.

What are the supposed "rules of engagement" in this situation? Shoot first or only return fire? Anybody know?
