The Wheels of Justice Grind Slowly; NOLA Edition

But they do, on occasion, grind out some justice:
A federal judge Wednesday sentenced five former New Orleans police officers to prison terms ranging from six to 65 years for the shootings of unarmed civilians in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, prosecutors said.
One cop got 65 years, two got 40 years, one got 38 years and one, who tried to cover up the shootings, got six years.

Federal inmates have to do a minimum of 85% of their sentence in order to be eligible for parole, so the shooters are mostly going to be in prison until close to the middle of the century.
