Went to the link and confirmed my suspicion they were Holder’s people. They are.

The victims’ race. No doubt white.

Watch the vid at link.
White couple, arms around each other, FBYs (Feral Black Youths) walk by then come back and assault from behind ( favorite coward's trick).

Lesson 1 - Don't believe that FBY are all sleeping off their nightly binges at 6AM
Lesson 2 - BE AWARE OF YOUR ENVIRONMENT! There was no reason for the FBY to get the drop on the couple if they had been expecting trouble - which they should have been - it's friggen New Orleans!.
Lesson 3 - Don't go anywhere unarmed. This and Lesson 2 would have saved this couple.

Only way to begin to stiffle these type attacks:

Locate a suspected area for such attacks.

Secret a few officers with 12 gauges and ARs.

Have a decoy, elder looking white guy suitably armored, walk through the area.

When the ferel animals strike it is an attack to commit great bodily harm in progress upon a police office so open fire, empty the mags, reload and fire again making sure there are no survivors except the decoy.

Send in a PR group, take many photographs, as graphic as possible, put them on the evening news noting the police will continue the program.

That’s actually a very good idea. There’s a show on TV about the LAPD and how they plant cars for thieves. They follow them and arrest them.

The NYPD had a similar programs in the 60’s to abort liquor store holdups in selected areas on the city. It worked, at least by culling the herd, until one perp lived and went to court and told of what happened.

The police won’t do that but we could start seeing a few vigilante types that arm up and go for walks. Which I support.

It is depressing that so soon after the cleansing Katrina enema, New Orleans has started to “back up” with low-life, chocolate citizens again.

You know the answer. It was Black on White. Black on White, no harm, no foul, just boys being boys or girls being girls. White on Black. That is a horse of a different color. Time to bring out the law enforcement apparatus.

Or, should Whites or perceived Whites, a/l/a George Zimmerman decide to defend themselves, all the self hating White Liberals, including those on this forum, hold hands with and join the lack lynch mod demanding their head for having the audacity to want to defend their lives from a criminal attack.

If you’re gonna have to get out in public where you’ll come across Holders People, you are going to have to get a carry license and CARRY. Carry the worst, most destructive ammo you can put in it. Otherwise, you need to stay home.

For the last 50 years at least they have. They have been constantly told by the White Liberal how Whites are the blame for all their troubles and ailments. How everything in life is owed to them by the Whites. And have been given everything, including money, they desired by these same White Liberals. They have been educated to the facts that they are not required to live under the same laws and rules of everyone else because they are Black. Someone has something you want? Kill him and take it. Hell with earning it. Why? Because as the White Liberal has said for years and untold times, you are Black and deprived. I could continue giving examples from now to infinity, but, yes Whitey has been egging them on for years...and years.

We actually did this in Texas a few years back.

When a local dry cleaning chain was repeatedly robbed, they fought back with shotgun squads. Off duty police officers were placed in random cleaners locations and shot several would be robbers...

End of problem...

Yep, knew it would be Obama/Holder’s people before I looked.

People, profiling works. You’re going to be wrong sometimes but anytime you are in the area with FBY you need to keep track of where they are. You need to go to Condition Orange and be prepared to go to Condition Red (fight). I’m going to meet that kind of attack with 9 mm Buffalo Bore +P 124 gr JHPs. I suggest you do the same.

Unfortunately, the French Quarter is near some really bad neighborhoods. It’s not uncommon for tourists to become disoriented after a night of partying and wander into an area that they should have avoided.

This would only have to happen once, and the lesson would hopefully be learned by the more "opportunistic" bands.

However, it could lead to unseen escalations for the more organized black hate groups (NBBP, etc). They might consider it a challenge (gauntlet thrown down), and at that point the big guns come out. Then we'd be in the racial civil war that zero wants in order to justify his dictator/kingship.

There is nothing French about the French quarter. It’s more like a jungle, with feral predators roaming around, acting semi-civilized until they see an innocent White prey. Then they revert to jungle mentality and attack.

You can’t reason with a reptilian brain. Stay away.

Another problem with this black-on-white attack is the NOPD handling of the calland investigation:

http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2013/08/nopd_opens_internal_investigat_1.html

‘Acknowledging “an error was made,” New Orleans police have opened an internal investigation into an officer and dispatcher who handled the report of the beating of a man and woman in the French Quarter during the weekend.

New Orleans Police Department spokeswoman Remi Braden on Wednesday confirmed the investigation, saying: “An error was made. We are investigating to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.”

Officials are working to find the breakdown in the department’s response to the Saturday morning attack, which left Donald Mehrtens III, 27, of Metairie, with a shattered jaw and his 19-year-old companion with a cut and swollen lip.

NOPD on Tuesday released video of the three suspects who surrounded Mehrtens near the intersection of Iberville and Dauphine streets about 6 a.m. after verbally harassing the two. The men punched the woman in the mouth and struck Mehrtens several times.

“They fanned out around him and attacked him from behind,” said Mehrtens’ father, Donald Mehrtens Jr., 52, who has since taken the Police Department to task for their initial mishandling of the crime.

Relatives have said an officer who arrived at the scene just after Mehrtens was loaded into an ambulance didn’t speak with either victim or take a report. Donald Mehrtens Jr. said no one from NOPD contacted his son about the incident until Monday. A second officer dispatched on the day of the attack to investigate the incident categorized it as “unfounded,” despite Mehrtens’ grievous injuries.

“Why didn’t he follow it up at the hospital?” Donald Mehrtens Jr. asked of the second officer.

Kenneth Choina, 48, the father of the woman who was attacked, furiously voiced many of the same concerns. “If he (the first officer) would have taken notes or anything when he showed up, they probably could have found these guys walking around the Quarter still,” Choina said. “I just want somebody to answer to me, as her father, why wasn’t a report made right then and there?”

Braden said the first NOPD officer on the scene was actually off the clock. He pulled over on the way home after noticing the ambulance, she said. Paramedics told him the victim was being treated and would shortly be transported to a hospital, she said.

The officer checked in with dispatchers about the call, radioing in a “Code 4,” a signal that Braden said removes the urgency at the scene. But Braden said the first officer told the dispatcher another officer was needed to take a report.

That second officer was dispatched, but he first handled more urgent calls, including a residential burglar alarm and a fight, Braden said. The second officer finally got to Mehrtens’ attack about 8:40 a.m.

But the officer went to the scene of the beating, not the hospital. Why he did so is part of the investigation, Braden said. With the victims and witnesses no longer at Iberville and Dauphine, the second officer called the incident “unfounded.” “This is what we are investigating,” said Braden who noted that the department spent Tuesday pulling records and probing the matter.

Donald Mehrtens Jr. said the detective who eventually contacted them about the incident finally got the ball rolling. “Since then, they’ve done what I would expect them to do, which is conduct a good investigation,” he said.

Although the first officer to arrive at the scene was off-duty, Donald Mehrtens Jr. said he is still dissatisfied with the course of events. That officer could have taken the time to make sure the incident was handled correctly.

“To me, there was a flavor of not caring: protect and punch the clock,” Donald Mehrtens Jr. said.

His son was recovering Wednesday after surgeons inserted three plates to repair his broken jaw. The elder Mehrtens said it was never his intention to whip up a media circus, but he was incensed after viewing the disturbing surveillance video footage of his son’s attack.

“My whole goal is to get the police to do their job and to catch these guys,” he said.’

Just badges

But I’m cautious

Even back when NOPD was white...it was brutal and corrupted....utterly

Why no Hate Crime?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Another ‘questionable’ attack had one of the ‘reasons’ given that the victim fought back and that infuriated the attackers.

Obviously in this case it was a robbery and the victims just happened to be White and had to be administered a beating because they reacted to slowly.

We really are going to ‘hell in a hand basket’, and it appears the TWO top law enforcers in the country are promoting it???

NOPD should sit back and let a few Charles Bronsons on the streets for a few weeks. "The beatings will continue until morale improves."

It is apparent there was no attempt to rob. It was simply a beat down attack on an unwary white couple. These ferals were looking for victims to assault and batter. They found them.

Even walking up the middle of the street didn't save the couple. It was a well planned, rapid attack. They never knew what hit them.

They should be tried for attempted premeditated murder.
