Five former officers involved in the murder of unarmed two black people and injured four during the Hurricane Katrina days, which is over a decade, pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday.
The New York Times reported that five former Police officers who were involved in the fatal shooting of two black people and injured four during the days of Hurricane Katrina, which is a decade ago, on Wednesday pleaded guilty in court.
Officers opened fire on unarmed residents at Danziger Bridge on September 4, 2005, when they responded to a distress call, 11 years ago. The initial guilty term which was 3 years was drawn to 12 years after officers pleading guilty, The New York Times reported.
The four officers, Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon face 12 years imprisonment for the murder of unarmed civilians. However, they got disproportionately small prison sentences in comparison with the crime they committed, but their conviction is good precedent of at least white officers sent to prison for killing black people.
