SMH: 3 N.O. Police Officers Convicted For Hurricane Katrina Killing And Body Burning

- By Bossip Staff

This doesn’t surprise us, more shady a$s cops:

A former New Orleans police officer was convicted Thursday of fatally shooting a man in Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath and another officer was convicted of burning the man’s body in a case that exposed one of the ugliest chapters in the police department’s troubled history.

A federal jury also convicted a third officer of writing a false report on the deadly shooting of 31-year-old Henry Glover, but two others were acquitted of charges stemming from the alleged cover-up. The jury of five men and seven women convicted former officer David Warren of manslaughter in the shooting death of 31-year-old Henry Glover outside a strip mall on Sept. 2, 2005. Prosecutors said Warren shot an unarmed man in the back.

Officer Gregory McRae was convicted of burning Glover’s body in a car. Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann was acquitted of that charge. Both were cleared of charges they beat the men who had brought the dying Glover to a makeshift police compound in search of help.

Lt. Travis McCabe was convicted of writing a false report on the shooting and lying to the FBI and a grand jury. Lt. Robert Italiano was cleared of charges he submitted the false report and lied to the FBI. “This was a case that needed to be aired,” U.S. District Judge Lance Africk said after the verdicts were read aloud.

Some of the officers hugged each other before they left the courtroom, while their relatives tried to console each other. Glover’s relatives sobbed as they embraced each other.

Rebecca Glover, Henry’s aunt, said the verdict doesn’t close the case for her. “This has been a long, anguishing time,” she said. “All of them should have been found guilty. They were all in on it.”

    I swear man the system needs to change the way things are done with the jury’s findings. I feel jurors need to provide a reason for why they found a person guilty or not guilty. How in God’s name did those crooked cops get found not guilty for beating up the people who tried to take Mr Glover to get help. WHat was the determining factor that those biotches were not guilty.

    Honestly, I haven’t followed this story enough to know the details, but during the 90’s the po po’s in NOLA were worse than the dope dealers. They were on their payroll. BUT, the system down there is so shady you never know what to believe.

  • Illuminate Truth "the strong rule the weak but the wise rule the strong"

    Trust me…these are just the cave dwellers that got caught. Like I TRIED to say in the other crooked cop thread…this story repeats itself in EVERY Black community.

    We have to learn the simple act of self preservation through self defense. We have to re-draw the line which we are NOT willing to let them cross….because right now that line is way too d@mn close.

    I believe in Universal Law but sometimes karma needs a kick in the a$$.

    This is such a contradictory story. How is it the police get to lie to the FBI and get away with falsifying evidence when in MA a young lady was a witness lied to protect her family gets a few yrs for perjury? This country is going downhill fast!!
