Gretna's Bridge

Shepard Smithreported this last week I believe in his spot on H&C. He keptsaying that the police were blocking people from crossing the bridgewhile Geraldo told us that the people were locked in the Center. Talkabout a horror show.

TpmCafe: "My advice for the Congressional commission which will investigate intohow the Hurricane Katrina disaster was handled in New Orleans: don’tforget to pay a visit to the Chief of the Police of the city of Gretna,across the Mississippi river bridge....read on"
Property over life?
