Obama and Holder Have Turned America into a Banana Republic: Federal Judge Kurt Engelhardt Throws Out Convictions and Sentences of Danziger Bridge Five Cops, and Orders Retrial, in Response to DOJ Criminality and Corruption (My New VDARE Report is Up!)

Well, at least George W. Bush did one thing right!

Danziger Bridge Five Retrial Ordered—Because of “Significant and Repugnant” Misconduct by Obama DOJ

“Katrina Revisionism,” the campaign to disappear ordinary Americans’ horrified reaction to the reports of barbarism that got past Main Stream Media news managers after Hurricane Katrina, has taken a heavy but (needless to say) little-reported blow. It raises the gravest questions about the integrity of the Obama Regime and Eric (“My People”) Holder’s Department of Justice— which, by the way, would get to administer any illegal alien Amnesty.

Federal Judge Kurt Engelhardt, a Bush II appointee, has just granted a motion for a new trial for five of the New Orleans policemen, including one black, convicted and sentenced for shooting six unarmed blacks, killing two, at the Danziger Bridge in the wake of Katrina, and for the subsequent cover up. In a 129-page statement, Judge Engelhardt cited rampant misconduct by members of the Obama/Holder DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, including criminal acts: at least three DOJ lawyers pseudonymously posting prejudicial comments at the New Orleans Times-Picayune’s website; lying to Judge Engelhardt about their misconduct; intimidating defense witnesses out of testifying; illegally revealing secret grand jury testimony both to fellow prosecutors trying the case, and to the Times-Picayune and the Associated Press.

Judge Engelhardt’s conclusion: “Traditional notions and concepts of criminal justice cannot be served by minimizing such misconduct and preserving a verdict under these peculiar circumstances.”

This entire episode is eight years old now. These cops been tried over and over by state and then federal juries. 100 % in violation of the double jeopardy clause to the constitution as originally intended. This is all a travesty and everyone know it to be so. That double jeopardy has been done away with long time ago now. Done to satisfy the civil rights advocates. Extreme cases make for bad law and also a violation of a fundamental right of the citizen. But when blacks demand, give them what they want. So is the thought.
