Correction: Gretna police blocked Orleans parish refugees at parish line

I had earlier attributed this to the Sheriff's Department, as Nagin identfied them as Jefferson Parish officers.

Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson says it was his offices who turned back the evacuees with no offer of assistance.

Whoever is to blame, it was a despicable act. Most of the law enforcement officers in the metro NOLA area are heroes. These are cowards and worsse.
