Kind of looks like a gang hit that didn't work so well for the innocent bystanders.
 
2013-05-16 11:55:57 AM
That's why I will NEVER go to New Orleans.  Besides, why would I go to New Orleans when I can get the Extreme Cajun Pasta Explosion at O'Charley's right here in Scottsdale?
 
2013-05-16 11:56:33 AM
And the people rejoiced!

Boring. We only care about mass shootings when it's not one of 'those' people. We expect them to shoot each other all the time.

The explosion happens after you eat it, right?

iheartscotch: Kind of looks like a gang hit that didn't work so well for the innocent bystanders.


the theory was that they were going after someone who was thought to have possibly given information to the police.  and, since these guys were pretty young and stupid, they just opened up shooting, not realizing that guns need to be aimed near the target to be effective.

I am sure that the individual legally owned that gun as well....

If you come to New Orleans, stay out of the 7th Ward and your odds of getting shot decrease precipitously.

As for your dining choice, I hope that extreme Cajun pasta explosion takes place in your colon.

kind of surprised and dsiappointed it was not some white tea party guy.  You know how those people are.

NOLA is a total craphole.  I've been a few times to areas in and around there.  I grew up in MS, so it's not just a culture shock issue.  It's just a terrible place.
 
2013-05-16 12:03:03 PM
Not terrorism or mass shooting though right....
 
2013-05-16 12:03:03 PM
The black people of New Orleans have been naturally selected to be so tough a mass shooting doesn't kill anyone.
 
2013-05-16 12:04:57 PM
I still don't understand what kind of parade this was. It looks like it went down some VERY small residential streets rather than a business district. Was this a large parade, or just a cub scout troop walking down the street behind a high school band?

It's a second line parade.  Second lines are brass jazz bands anywhere from four or five to a dozen or so musicians who march and play upbeat jazz music.  Old jazz funeral processionals had a "first line" of musicians who led the procession and the casket playing somber music.  This was followed by the family and all the mourners, and then a "second line" of musicians who played very upbeat music, to remind us all to celebrate life.  Second lines are popular and frequent in Mardi Gras parades, and often march during different holidays for neighborhood parties and block parties.

I bet the odds are 50/50 he gets his attitude from his mother. Have you ever seen the video of the mother on the bus who threw her baby to a seat so she could have a fight?
 
2013-05-16 12:08:14 PM
It looks like they got the second shooter as well.

I was offered a position that paid far better than what I was being paid at the time, but it was in New Orleans. I gave it about 30 seconds of consideration and declined. Been there many times and always stayed in the French Quarter. I detest that city!

It's New Orleans every neighborhood has a parade committee, they throw parades for everything, then hold a fish fry where they drink lots of alcoholic beverages.

around this time of year in new orleans, there are multiple parades every weekend. this was a mother's day parade that went through that part of town.

other places in the US don't seem to understand what it means to have random parades all the time.  I can't count how many surprise parades i've run into and followed.
 
2013-05-16 12:12:22 PM
Why didn't they arrest the gun?  That is true criminal.

Actually I think they brought in marshalls for this one.

Yeahhhh....me thinks that these guys are deficient in the critical thinking department.

I agree; they just opened up. If I didn't think that this was a gang hit; I'd say that the crowd was the target.

/ maybe, it was; how better to intimidate a witness for the fuzz than to kill a bunch of that witness' neighbors.

He'll probably share a cell.

I read that as ANOL parade shooter. Which, could indicate an altogether different reason for the presence of a large group.

And if he had, he's "not representative of gun owners" anyway.

I figured it was this guy. He just wanted to sleep and the noise from the parade woke him up.

take that unexpected acts of violence

from  http://www.wwltv.com/news/Re-do-scheduled-for-Mothers-Day-parade-2076 4 3401.html :

"The Original Big 7 Social Aid and Pleasure Club community is deeply saddened by the foolish violence that took place during our annual Mother's Day's Parade. Our hearts and prayers go out to all of the victims of this tragedy and their families. We are with them in the struggle for health, wellness, and justice.

"We are proud to announce that we will be doing a Re-Do Mother's Day Parade On Saturday June 1, 2013 at 1pm on the same exact route. ... We are starting a donation fund for the Original Big 7 Social Aid and Pleasure Club to Re-Parade; the donations are to pay for the brass bands and for the victims affected by the violence that accorded on Mother's Day."

Attempted 2nd degree murder?  So.....how many people do you have to shoot to make it 1st degree?
 
2013-05-16 12:21:43 PM
TFA: It's worth noting that the teenager has a history of arrests, including a March arrest for illegally carrying a weapon while in possession of narcotics

If only there was a law that would have made the guy he got this gun from do a background check on him, this never would have happened!

Nabb1: If you come to New Orleans, stay out of the 7th Ward and your odds of getting shot decrease precipitously.


The seventh ward is a pretty big chunk of the city. Like everywhere else here, some parts are good some are bad and some are Beruit.

I live in the seventh ward in Oak Park, near the new Holy Cross, and I can leave lawn equipment out in my yard without concern, and my front door unlocked. Yet I wouldn't go for a stroll in some parts of uptown in broad daylight without an armed guard. In fact they just made that massive RICO bust in River Gardens last week. I bugged out of uptown 10 years ago because I got sick of constantly worrying about break-ins.

But yeah, the area where this happened is about as dicey as it gets here.

i remember reading or hearing that theory that i mentioned above.  but, it's not rare that an attempted hit involves bullets striking nothing but innocent bystanders.  there are some really young kids who think they can play the crime game, and while they certainly have the sociopahy necessary, they don't have the intelligence to think of consequences, or even how to aim a gun.  (as I've said a million times, young kids are infinitely more scary than adults.  they don't care about anything.  adults might want to avoid jail or death.  but not kids.  these kids were like 19, pretty old, but still very stupid).

but, public assassinations are scary and effective.  the point is to dissuade people from talking to the police, saying, look what I will do and look what i will get away with.  however, they are not getting away with it, and they're not hitting their targets.  and the public is getting tired of it. as you can see, people are finally talking to police.  occasionally.

You're right.  I should have been more specific and said "This part of the 7th Ward." Have you pulled up the crime map and seen all the dots in and around that intersection lately?  It's lit up like a Christmas tree.

According to the May 13 arrest warrant, detectives compiled a six-photograph panel of suspects that included a recent photograph of Scott along with five other people with "similar physical and facial features."

I bet that wasn't terribly difficult.

Having a weapon and narcotics is supposed to lead to a mandatory minimum five year sentence. However, this city has a revolving door justice system that could be used to generate power sufficient to rival the Hoover Dam.

Talos: Attempted 2nd degree murder?  So.....how many people do you have to shoot to make it 1st degree?


First degree murder is pretty specific in Louisiana's criminal code.  It's basically premeditated murder.  The vast majority of murder charges in New Orleans are murder 2.  I don't think he set out beforehand to kill these 19 specific people, so attempted murder 2 would be appropriate.  He probably saw some person or persons he had a beef with in the crowd and just opened fire.  Dickhead.
