5 Officers Indicted in Katrina Killing

Read entire article here:

"After the killing, the indictment said, a false police report was drawn up by Lt. Robert Italiano, who later left the force, and Lt. Travis McCabe. Both were charged with obstruction of justice and making false statements to the F.B.I.

The circumstances surrounding Mr. Glover’s death were first reported in late 2008 in an article that was a collaboration by the Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute and the nonprofit investigative news service Pro Publica.

It became the most gruesome of several deaths that are believed to have occurred at the hands of the New Orleans police, a force that has been troubled for decades.

“Behavior such as described in the indictment has no place in a free society, let alone law enforcement,” Dave Welker, the F.B.I. special agent in charge for Louisiana’s Eastern District, said in a statement on Friday.

The case is one of at least eight investigations into actions of the New Orleans Police Department being conducted by the federal government."

Note: If the FBI locks these guys up - I will have to give them credit for doing something worthwhile for a change.
