Before the blood dried, the shooters and their supervisors had hatched a cover-up. They would plant a gun, invent witnesses, and charge two of their victims with attempted murder. The NOPD hailed all the shooters on the bridge as heroes. Shots on the Bridge explores one of the most dramatic cases of injustice in the last decade. It reveals the fear that gripped the police of a city fallen into anarchy, the circumstances that led desperate survivors to go to the bridge, and the horror that erupted with the gunfire. It dissects the cover-up that nearly buried the truth and the legal maze that, a decade later, leaves the victims still searching for justice.

A riveting account of what really happened on the Danziger Bridge
in New Orleans during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina-and the lies fabricated by the NOPD. Reading this book I felt as if I lived through that day on the bridge and the aftermath, suffered the police lies and cover-up, and the trials. This is a must read book. Harrowing. The author does a good job detailing the facts and keeping his opinions on the sidelines, at least until the final chapter when he calls out Judge Kurt Englehart for some pretty gross judicial activism, which seems like well-warranted criticism.
