With Charges Dropped, Former New Orleans Police Officer Wants Job Back

A former New Orleans police lieutenant wants his job back and back pay after prosecutors dropped federal charges against him in the alleged cover-up of Henry Glover's burning and fatal shooting.

Travis McCabe was accused of doctoring a police report to make it seem like former Officer David Warren was justified when he fatally shot Glover four days after Hurricane Katrina.

McCabe was convicted in December 2010, but a federal judge granted him a new trial after ruling that an early draft of the report, discovered after the trial, likely would have produced an acquittal.

Jury Hears From Ex-Cop Charged In Katrina Shooting

A former New Orleans police officer has testified at his retrial that he thought he saw a gun in the hand of the man he shot and fatally wounded outside a strip mall in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.

Warren says he feared for his life when he shot Glover, but prosecutors say Glover wasn't armed and didn't pose a threat.
