Cop Convictions Overturned in Henry Glover Case
Updated 12 p.m.
The grisly post-K chapter involving the killing of Henry Glover isn't over. Two former NOPD officers convicted for the Algiers resident's death saw some of their convictions overturned by a federal appeals court ruling handed down late last week. David Warren, who shot Henry Glover, will get a new trial. Gregory McRae saw his conviction on one count reversed by the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and will be resentenced in U.S. District Court.

Like you, our Midsummer Mardi Gras costumes took our noses out of the headlines. Here's a couple snippets we missed:
Sunday Reading: July 24, 2011
As we were picking up the pieces of last week, we found a few to share:
New Trial for Convicted Cop
One of the officers who was convicted in the post-Katrina shooting death of Henry Glover and subsequent police cover-up will get a new trial, a federal judge ruled today. Travis McCabe, who was convicted of writing a false police report in the case, presented new evidence that he was not guilty, and it is "grave" enough to deserve a retrial, Judge Lance Africk ruled today. McCabe presented a second version of the police report that proves it wasn't changed. The trial is scheduled for August.
Ten Events That Defined '10
In a place where the collective experience of parades, boomer musician curtain calls, and Cape Verdean storm systems already occupy a huge portion of private life, the events of the past year caused all New Orleanians to speak with a single guttural noise. From Causeway to Gulf, there rang out a booming “Who Dat” as the little football team that a few people pay attention to gave us deliverance.
This morning, as boiling water reminded us of the ridiculous pace of lunacy here in the City of Dreams, we stumbled upon a Guardian story about the ongoing, maddening trial of five cops in the post-K death of Henry Glover. With headlines grisly virtually everyday in this town, it helps to get some perspective from someone looking at this place with plain old glasses, and not a microscope. Turns out, zooming out helps zoom in on the reasons the incident, and the others like it, might have happened in the first place.
5 NOPD Indicted
Some stories are too sad for snark. The fallout from the post Katrina chaos continues today as five New Orleans police officers (two retired) were indicted in the death of Henry Glover. Glover was shot by the police days after Katriina, and then placing his body in a car, and burning it. Thanks to TP for story.
Eli at The Lens continues their generally badass reporting by bringing us a look at fundraisers for the Police Association of New Orleans' (PANO) Legal Defense Fund. Well, the fundraiser itself might be boring,.. So, The Lens investigated the Facebook page for their last event. The content is fascinating, if not a little offensive. Read the writeup.
