Would Blackwater Get Away with that in America?

Reacting to the most recent killing of civilians by Blackwater USA in Iraq, Baghdad resident Halim Mashkoor told AP Television News:
"We see the security firms ... doing whatever they want in the streets. They beat citizens and scorn them..." "If such a thing happened in America or Britain, would the American president or American citizens accept it?"

Yes. It happend with Blackwater in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
