    I am so glad the first story, that the engineers were killed by police was in error.

    Thank you for reporting what you heard, Casshew (both times).

    Goodness, even Yahoo had the headline "Contractors Killed by Police" but when I clicked, it didn't say that. They updated too fast. Casshew's edited post is right: contractors were being shot at and NOPD shot the gunmen.

    Look what I just found. This article was written at 3:51 PDT Sunday, September 4, 2005
    CNN really goofed big time.

    As authorities struggled to keep order, police shot and killed at least five people Sunday after gunmen opened fire on a group of contractors traveling across a bridge on their way to make repairs, Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley said.

    Fourteen contractors were traveling across the Danziger Bridge under police escort when they came under fire, said John Hall, a spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers. None of the contractors was killed, Hall said.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Unbelievable isn't it? I think some of the gunmen lived so they will be going to the big house. Why do people do such crazy things? Did they really think they could take on the police and win. Pure stupidy.
