It looks like two unarmed civilians killed following Hurricane Katrina may finally receive some justice.
Three men will be arraigned today for the killing of two unarmed civilians on a New Orleans bridge and the alleged cover-up that followed.
According to the The Associated Press, the shootings occurred on Sept. 4, 2005, just six days after Hurricane Katrina destroyed levees and left the city in chaos. Upon receiving reports of gunfire on the Danziger Bridge, several heavily armed New Orleans police officers went to the scene. Prosecutors say the officers shot at the first people they saw — who turned out to be unarmed civilians looking for food and supplies. When the assault ended, two people were dead and four others were injured.
The government’s indictment accuses former police officer Robert Faulcon of shooting Ronald Madison, a 40-year-old mentally disabled man, in the back when he tried to run away, The New York Times reported. Sgt. Kenneth Bowen is charged with kicking and stomping on Madison after he was lying injured on the ground. Madison’s brother Lance was arrested for trying to kill the police officers, but he was later released without indictment.
Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, Faulcon and Bowen are also accused of shooting at an unarmed family on the bridge, killing James Brissette, 17, and wounding four others. If found guilty, they could face the death penalty.
Sgt. Arthur Kaufman and retired Sgt. Gerard Dugue, who investigated the incident, are accused of participating in an alleged cover-up and are charged with obstruction of justice. Prosecutors say they fabricated witnesses, falsified reports and plotted to plant a gun to make it appear that the shootings were justified.
Kaufman, Dugue and Faulcon will have their initial court appearances today.
The charges, which were unveiled earlier this month, were the culmination of a two-year investigation by the federal government. An internal police probe found no wrongdoing by the officers, and defense attorneys say they’re confident their clients will be exonerated.
This sounds really shady. Let’s hope the truth finally prevails in this case.
God rest the souls of the dead.
