Gretna Bridge

Rep. Cynthia McKinney writes about how Katrina survivors from New Orleans were blocked from reaching dry ground across the river in Gretna by a couple of redneck Cheney-heads--a sheriff and a police chief.
Could it be that the police chief and the sheriff are guilty of a hate crime? How can federally funded roads be blocked by local officials at a time of emergency? Where was the Federal Government that should have been ensuring the lives of all Katrina survivors? Didn't the New Orleans survivors have the right to life? And civil rights?

And where's the outrage?
Today I will introduce legislation to strip all federal funds from the Gretna City Police Department, the Jefferson Parish Police, and the Crescent City Connection security force, all reportedly involved in the tragic blocking of the Gretna City bridge.
Go Cynthia!
