FBI Investigates Danziger Bridge (Katrina deaths) and other NOLA PD alleged civil rights violations
NOPD Investigated In Post-Katrina Civil Rights Cases
FBI Investigates Danziger Bridge, Glover, Grimes Cases

NEW ORLEANS -- A federal investigation is being conducted into the New Orleans Police Department to determine if New Orleans police violated the civil rights of people killed and injured in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

FBI agents raided NOPD headquarters this week in connection with the infamous Danziger Bridge shooting, but that case may just be the beginning of bigger investigation.

WDSU was told that the search warrant on police headquarters happened just a couple days ago, but this type of investigation had been years in the making and the probe into the police department is broader than the events that happened on the Danziger Bridge that left two dead and four wounded.

Files and computer hard drives are what sources said federal investigators were after when they raided police head quarters this week.

Finally, the civil rights violations and crimes of the NOPD (and others) after Katrina are being investigated.
