Two suspects wanted for French Quarter beating Police released surveillance video of two suspects wanted in connection with the beating of a man in the 800 block of Conti Street. view full article The musician, Doug Potter, is now in an induced coma. WWLTV reported:

A well-known New Orleans musician is hospitalized and unconscious after being jumped in the French Quarter.

Doug Potter’s family and friends believe he may have been a target of the “knockout” game.

“Always here when we needed him. Really nice man,” said Chef Rick Tyler of Cafe Beignet.

Steamboat Willie and his New Orleans Jazz Band entertained music lovers Tuesday night inside the Bourbon Street courtyard venue. The cafe is also where fellow musician Potter plays three times a week.

On Monday night it was suppose to be business as usual.

“It’s a terrible tragedy. I was the one that let him out the gate last night. I left 10 minutes after he did, so it could have been any of us,” Tyler said.

“According to witnesses as well as video tape, two individuals just took it upon themselves to assault, and badly hurt him. He fell into the street,” said David Potter, the victim’s brother.

Since the brutal attack the 54-year-old bass player has undergone intensive brain surgery at University Hospital, where family and friends continue to pray for his recovery.

Friends confirm he’s now in an induced coma.

“Get these people off the street. I’ve had it. You live here all your life and you have to deal with something like that,” said David Potter.

As Potter remains in intensive care, loved ones are grappling to understand why the musician with such a “big heart” was the target of such a violent and senseless attack.

“two individuals”

That narrows down the list of possible perps, doesn’t it?

I went to the French Qtr. once. I found it to be of the lowest, dirtiest places in America. It really attracted a rabble.

I feel sorry for the otherwise good folks of New Orleans who have to deal with that low-grade tourist sh**hole in their city.

Why was he the target of a senseless attack? Because we have raised generations of feral black youth, who have been raised with no morals, no values, and no respect for human life. We have raised generations of feral black youth who think whites are the reason their lives are so miserable.

We have raised generations who have no fear of the punishment or consequences for actions such as these.

They never will understand until they recognise that this is not random, it's a hate crime being systemically ignored by the justice system. If the victim/ perpetrator roles were reversed, you can bet the pattern would be noticed. We'd be hearing all about how it's “open season” on blacks by whites.

The entitlement welfare system encourages this dysgenic breeding. I read on a Chicago cop blog, about how incest was rampant in the projects, because so many didn’t know who their fathers, and therefore who their siblings, were.

“I went to the French Qtr. once. I found it to be of the lowest, dirtiest places in America.”

I did too and came home with the worse stomach virus and fever of my life. I don't think I'll ever forget it...all the way home, sick as a dog, ended up in the emergency room. And I didn't drink a drop of liquor.

New Orleans police released a sketch on Tuesday night (Jan. 21) of a man suspected in helping beat a man unconscious after an altercation outside a French Quarter bar.

New Orleans was a city built by pirates, thieves, brigands and cut-throats.

It is one of the few American cities that has remained true to its founding principles.

Wonder who has has voted for in the past? You reap what you sow. Just like we (as a country) are doing now.

Will we have to wait till someone is killed before the MSM and that POS Holder acknowledge that these cowardly acts are more than kids having fun?? You can damn well bet they’ll squeal “TRAYVON” the first time one of these punks chooses a target that isn’t caught off guard & is packing, and I believe that day is coming soon...

When you have black racist bastard as AG and a black racist bastard as his boss, this is what you get.

Meanwhile, a traffic jam on a bridge becomes a Federal Case.

I mean.......really? You look at that picture and can’t help but think to yourself, “you just can’t make up this stuff”.

In a previous life, I lived in New Orleans; worked for an Oil Company there. The stories and crime scenes that come out of there are purely and simply bizarre to the point that most people can’t wrap their minds around the situation.

Those are no doubt effective. But for a real clean out, I favor 12 gauge magnums with 000 buck. Got two boxes at home.

” grappling to understand why the musician with such a “big heart” was the target of such a violent and senseless attack.”

Hard to understand? Here it is. He was attacked because he’s WHITE! Feral subhuman youths think it’s a lot of fun to punch and knock out a White person. It’s done out of hatred and racism, and they are given a free pass by the law and the media.

People have already been killed in the knockout “game”, including an 80-something yo vet, Delbert Belton.

More than one, in just what strictly counts as the “knockout game”, ie, not counting the infant shot in the face, the elderly white women, including a nun, raped and beaten, some to death, a young boy murdered by a black woman using a blow torch, the Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome torture/murders, and more.

The 3 point crown has been adopted by the Latin Kings gang as a gang sign. They also use a 5 point crown as a symbolism. Their gang is run by what is called the Crown Council who dishes out discipline and rules.

If our police & POS Holder won’t stop this, then it looks like the rest of us “targets” will have to do a variation of the “Thatch Weave” fighter pilots created during WW2, 2 people watching each other’s back, if a punk tries the game on one the other will have a clear shot...

Where I live isn’t very pedestrian-friendly, but I still worry about parking lots, etc. I won’t go to the store at night. I carry mace, and that’s all I’m admitting to here. I still worry though, because even if you’re armed, the way the attacks happen, you don’t see it coming to defend yourself. At the grocery store, even in daylight, when loading my car, I try to keep the cart between me and whoever. I’ll shove it into them if they approach me, and I won’t slow down to see if they’re friendly. That may sound drastic, but too bad. As long as this is swept under the rug and no black leaders will call their thugs out for this, as long as this “justice” system allows it to happen and doesn’t call it what it is and prosecute accordingly-ie, a hate crime-I will do what I have to do to protect myself.

Nothing can be taken for granted. One group of blacks who set upon and beat their non-black victims (a large city, I think it was Baltimore but I would need to search for the story) were still wearing their school uniforms when they did it.

“In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.”

The sad part is I have had numerous discussions on crime with black people at work and they seem to think just the reverse of statistics like these. It is pathetic as far as I’m concerned; I realize many people are ignorant or self-deluded. I think a lot of people have been brainwashed in the black community through the media and TV and just pure nonsense in their communities to believe that white people are out to get black people and committing crimes of every sort. Sometimes I will say something but because these people are in the same general office I just accept their point of view and change the topic or walk away. Insane world.
