And the Danziger Bridge Shootings

The Danziger Bridge shootings were police shootings that took place on September 4, 2005, at the Danziger Bridge in New Orleans, Louisiana. Six days after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, members of the city's police department killed two people: 17-year-old James Brissette and 40-year-old Ronald Madison.

Four other people were wounded. All victims were unarmed. Madison, a mentally disabled man, was shot in the back. New Orleans police fabricated a cover-up story for their crime, falsely reporting that seven police officers responded to a police dispatch reporting an officer down, and that at least four people were firing weapons at the officers upon their arrival.

On another note: St. Bernard Parish stacked large cargo containers across the two access roads that lead into Orleans Parish to keep people from New Orleans out, and had the National Guard guarding the Mississippi River Levee access. St. Bernard Parish line is within 5 miles down-river from the French Quarters. 67,000 people lived and were completely wiped clean of their homes and material posessions in St. Bernard Parish from 29Aug2005 Hurricane Katrina. (A Parish is a County.)

So do you think they blew the

So do you think they blew the levee, just to see what would happen?

I had friends

Who lived close to the levees,they swear to this day they heard explosions coming from where the levees were,their claim,it was blown to get rid of the people who lived there,guess what? Most had to move away,as their homes were flooded.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

The Industrial Canal wasn't blown up.

It was mostly the MRGO surge for the Mid to Eastern side (down river) of Da Parish. The Western side (up river) butting Orleans was the Industrial Canal over-flow from the MRGO. Along with a few loose barges breaking the Industrial Canal levee and the different heights of the levees due to sinkage over time.

A detailed historical story of the 1927 Mississippie River Levee at Caernarvon being blow up is here:

Note for Local Yat:
Da Parish - A slang name for St. Bernard Parish.
MRGO - Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (canal).

What do you think about this?
