Presidential candidate and former congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney, has claimed that 5,000 looters were killed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. McKinney claimed to have spoken to a mother who said that her son had confided in her that he was involved with the executions of several looters who were subsequently dumped in the swamp. She also claimed that officials at the Red Cross had corroborated her story.
Previous reports have said that far more people were slain by Blackwater and other authorities then previously reported. Allegedly, Blackwater mercenaries employed their same controversial tactics that have gotten them into trouble in Iraq, in New Orleans against looters.
