New Orleans Mayor Landrieu Responds To Danzinger Guilty Verdict From Katrina
Written by  // Friday, 05 August 2011 14:25 //

mitch landrieuNow that a jury verdict has determined five New Orleans police officers to be guilty of Katrina related crimes, today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu issued the following statement after a federal jury returned guilty verdicts in the Danziger Bridge case:

 

“The verdicts in the Danziger Bridge trial provide significant closure to a dark chapter in our city’s history.  We now have an opportunity to turn the page and to heal.   

 

“With these verdicts, the American justice system delivered a clear message that no one stands above the law and that police abuse and misconduct will not be tolerated. 

 

“Today, we reaffirm our commitment to change.  The citizens of New Orleans deserve nothing less than a police department that truly protects and serves – one that partners with the community to keep New Orleans safe.  

 

“Our heartfelt apologies and prayers are with the families of James Brissette, Ronald Madison, Leonard Bartholomew III, Susan Bartholomew, Lesha Bartholomew, Jose Holmes, Jr., and Lance 

Madison.”
