Gretna Cops ARE Racists: trapped survivors

Gretna Cops ARE Racists

I don't have a reason to think that Bush is racist, but the Gretna Police might as well be KKK members. They blocked the greater New Orleans Bridge and would not allow people to evacuate the urban center of New Orleans:

"Cops trapped survivors in New Orleans"


Excerpts: "Police from surrounding jurisdictions shut down several access points to one of the only ways out of New Orleans last week, effectively trapping victims of Hurricane Katrina in the flooded and devastated city.
An eyewitness account from two San Francisco paramedics posted on an internet site for Emergency Medical Services specialists says, "Thousands of New Orleaners were prevented and prohibited from self-evacuating the city on foot."
"We shut down the bridge," Arthur Lawson, chief of the City of Gretna Police Department, confirmed to United Press International..."If we had opened the bridge, our city would have looked like New Orleans does now: looted, burned and pillaged." "

These guys should be fired, just for starters.
