Responding to The Times-Picayune's story "6th Ward shooting leaves man dead; 6th homicide in 4 days," reader chippewa7 commented in part:

"Every post I read is a reshuffling of the blame.

"Is there no hero or heroine out there who can speak up with some solutions?

"We need a spokesperson-paid or not-to step forward with REAL solutions or is everyone too afraid of the rotten apples contaminating our city? ..."

My step-daughter lives and studies in New Orleans. I pray for her safety.

Her mom and I visited her last year. A trial was getting a lot of publicity at the time, concerning an incident that took place at the time of Katrina. The trial concerned some police officers who were fired upon by unknown gunmen, and then returned fire on some bystanders who weren't armed, and who I believe were black. One individual lost an arm to gunfire, and others were wounded and killed.

I was, and am, sorry to hear about innocent people being shot like this. But to me, the whole thing sounded like a war-time incident, which could have happened in Vietnam, Iraq, or even Spain in 1808-1814. I hope the defense made the point that the NOLA policemen were operating in the midst of a hostile population, from which death could come at any moment. (That doesn't justify how they responded, but it is worthy of consideration.)

These are only my brief impressions of this incident. But NOLA during Katrina sounds like a battlefield, doesn't it? The hurricane gave some residents the chance to wage a savage guerrilla war against their "enemies."
