A Marine from Texas survived combat in Iraq only to be murdered in the French Quarter stabbed to death even as he wore his dress-blue uniform complete with battle commendations pinned to his chest

have no words, except he will live on in the lives of other marines.
Disgusting. I hope they find who did this. I’ll bet several people were involved.
I’m going to hold off with what I want to say for the time being.
I hope here’s a real life Agent Gibbs who finds the responsible party or parties to this horrible crime and he pursues them until they wind up with a real life Ducky weighing their liver.
Some people need killin’ and that’s all I’m going to say about that.
Another reason to never visit N.O.
New Orleans is 3rd world — product of public housing and handouts. Really a pathetic place and the murderers get away with it as part of the ‘no snitches’ mentality.
I came back from a deployment once only to be robbed on the street in Virgina by a gang. I thought about all the crappy places I had been only to become a victim in my own country.
Scum doesn’t know or care who it leaches from.
I hear ya, Im guessing I have the same gut feeling you do.
New Orleans is the BIGGEST TOILET in the USA. Been there once. One time too many. Hoping for a CATEGORY 50 Hurricane to finish the job.
I posted about this on Sunday. Ryan was in my husband’s unit. He was stabbed and MURDERED while he was *wearing his dress blues*.
There needs to be a reward or no one is going to turn this scum in to the police. Does anyone have any connections to the New Orleans Saints organization? Maybe someone there would help with a reward.
Unspeakable. Damned pit of vermin to do this. God bless and take this Marine, where I am sure he is welcomed by those who see the value in what this man did in his life and how he stood up when it counted.
God give his loved ones comfort.
I am speechless.
Prayers up for his family. Marines are simply a cut above the rest.
“A Marine from Texas survived combat in Iraq only to be murdered in the French Quarter...”
This kind of problem has been solved before.
Send in Marines to town armed to the gills.
When the locals start screaming that Marines are killing citizens, then we’re close to solving the problem.
Kill a few more left wing tough guys, and the name of the scuzball who killed the Marine will surface.
After that, the town will be safe for all people in the military.
Better to give NO up to the sea. Let it sink for good.
Bad choice of words. I have the utmost repect for marines. My son is one.
May he rest in peace. May his killer(s)'s consciences be haunted continuously.
We’re just numb; no worries. My husband was there at this Ball for the last 7 years. Last year he took our oldest daughter.
These criminals who own New Orleans have no regard for anything. Ryan was a good guy from every account. He was newly married.
His Marine family is just sick over this. Everyone is.
I bet they know
As a former cop I say “amen” to that!
This is a tragedy and no mistake, but some places are dangerous by default.
Like many northern cities, new orleans is third world, you take your life in your hands when you go there.
I visited to the French Quarter two nights during a trip to N.O. the first night out of curiousity, the second because I had no choice - found the low-life tourists it attracted dirty, violent and vulgar.
This happened right outside the Ritz Carlton.
My husband has been stationed down there for 7 years. His first or second year there, he was mugged and shoved into a car on a corner of Bourbon with 4 or 5 guys. He was taken to various ATMs & robbed and fortunately, was shoved back out of the moving car. He was very lucky to have come home alive.
Besides RIP - I will too.
Damn. Just Damn.
I went to New Orleans once, that was enough. Filthy place filled with queers and drunks.Tightest casino I ever played in.
Just unbelievable that this should happen.
The only light in the room where I am is this monitor, and I am looking in the dark and just asking for the names of them what did this.
Our apologies to the Mrs.
A memorial service was held on base this afternoon. Here are some photos from the Picayune.
no security in an area with a reputation like that?
I'm in complete agreement, of course. After reading this article, it abundantly clear that a truly good and decent man was taken from us by the lowlife murdering scum.
It is especially sickening that he came home from Iraq and ends up being killed by one of his “own” people. Whoever did this should be parachuted into Waziristan to try and make his way back.
Well, I guess it unamious. We’re all racists.
I still believe this will be solved. The NOPD will step up with crimes that occur in the Quarter. They will take out the usual suspects and crack some heads. When it comes to the Quarter that snitch mentality wears very thin with the NOPD. The Quarter is a Golden Goose and no one in NOLA wants to kill it.
Despite its many flaws, there are lots of nice, hardworking, honest people who live in New Orleans, who don't deserve to have their homes and livelihoods wiped out. You, on the other hand, are a complete and utter jerk!
I stopped caring about N.O. when they started shooting at Coast Guard helicopters trying to save their useless asses.
I’m unspeakably saddened by this story. Hopefully they’ll find out who did this. I’d feel better if they just give the names and addresses of the perps to the jarheads at the nearest Marine base, instead of bothering to prosecute them. Quicker. More final. More painful.
Works for me.
No idea why anyone would set foot in that vile place.
I feel the same way about Mexico.
I suppose that's true. I just don't care. I'm exhausted of having to care about that parasite of a city. I used to really like what N.O. was all about. But I'm done now.
When there's a civil emergency... and the ~cops~ start looting the town... sorry, but that's not behavior that belongs in the western hemisphere. It's a third-world pit of savages. It's not worth anyone else's care or time or money.

Bullsh*t. New Orleans is a lost cause. And to think, we were all supposed to give a damn when a bunch of drunks and idiots refused or were to stupid to leave the damn place as Katrina bore down on it.
To hell with it.
The place needs to be cleaned out—the criminals cast to the gators, and the welfare queens tossed off of the dole. This is an outrage and speaks volumes about what’s wrong with this nation.
