    Since is up (for the moment), I thought I would pass on this link of an autopsy that shows New Orleans police shot an unarmed mentally disabled man in the back 5 times, back up the story his brother told of how they were running away when the police opened fire. The police have been claiming this man turned toward them and "reached for his waistband," causing them to fear he was reaching for a weapon.

    Especially worth reading is the post by the guy who redid the whole news story, inserting "CCW Holder" for "police officer" wherever it appeared, to see if the story appeared the same . . .
