Maybe it was a good thing that most of the NOPD ran away

Updated: Better News: Apparently the Associated Press garbled the initial reports of a gunfight on a bridge in New Orleans to say that the police had killed five or six Army Corps of Engineers contractors. The corrected version says the contractors all survived and the police killed people who were, presumably, shooting at the contractors. We hope.

The New Orleans Police Department is apparently the exception to the rule "Better late than never." After days of letting anarchy reign, they've finally swung into action:

A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers said that some of its contractors were killed Sunday by police as they walked across a bridge on their way to repair a canal.

Earlier, New Orleans police said they shot eight people carrying guns on a city bridge, killing five or six of them.

Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley said the shootings took place on the Danziger Bridge over the Industrial Canal, which connects Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River. Riley said he has no other details.
