September 04, 2005,, thugs killed by NOLA police

The AP reported that local police had shot at eight thugs, killing five or six on the Danziger Bridge over the Industrial Canal in New Orleans.

The story quickly changed to the police shooting and killing five or six Army Corps of Engineers contractors.

Then the story changed again.

Stations: The latest New Orleans-datelined urgent series Hurricane Katrina-Shootings has been KILLED. The Army Corps of Engineers says the contractors were shot at, then police fatally shot the gunmen who'd fired on the contractors. The contractors were NOT killed.

A kill is mandatory. Make certain the story is not broadcast.

A sub will be filed shortly.

OK. The final story -- I hope -- is as noted: that contractors for the Army Corps of Engineers were shot at by some thugs; NOLA police shot at the thugs, killing them and saving the contractors.
