Description

New Orleans: A policeman stands guard over about a dozen self-proclaimed Black Panthers 9/15 after flushing them from a fortified house in the Desire Project. The police assault on the house followed a night the Crescent City police chief Clarence Giarrusso called 'a reign of terror' during which whites, blacks and police were assaulted and shot at, and cars (REAR) were pushed into drainage ditches and burned.
