Victim of St. Roch attack: 'They just wanted to stomp somebody'

William Murphy set out Sunday night to pick up a few groceries at the New Orleans Food Co-op in the St. Roch neighborhood. The roughly three-block walk is one the 54-year-old home renovator said he's made countless times since moving to the neighborhood in 2006.

But what should have been a routine errand quickly turned into a harrowing encounter with a group of teenagers who left him bloody and battered.

This is a good reason for him to have been packing.

If you go to the site, you can see the SEVERE DAMAGE to him.

To quote the article:

One blow left a clear shoe imprint on his forehead

The pictures that NOLA.com have of the victim show how vicious the perps were.

He was not packing a gun, but this article is a good reason to carry a gun in some neighborhoods and to know how to use it.

He might have needed a large magazine, as it sounded like quite a few teenage hoodlums attacked him.

No such thing in that environment.

Let me guess. A roving band of Bible-thumpin', right-wing wacko, Sarah Palin worshippin', Scandanavian Tea Party Dittoheads.

Sorry. If that makes me a racist, so be it.

No, they were well dressed Baptists and Catholics (with suit and Tie and wing tip shoes) coming back from Church. And they had blond hair and blue eyes.

Dang it. That was my second guess.

Either way, they probably looked like children Glenn Beck would've had.

It sure sounds like a 6 shot revolver would not have had enough ammo in this case.

I have heard of EDITOR's forcing reporters to have the criminals portrayed of a cruel society...

Reporter might have wanted to, but the EDITOR could have stepped in...

I’m not so sure you need to carry with a large capacity (unless that is your prerogative). One or two .357s to the closest perp and the rest of the cowards will run.

A derringer would probably work, as the others will usually run away when they see one of their fellow thugs get his head blowed off.

The chocolate city at work. I wouldn’t spend a dime in NOLA, had an encounter with the local cops and lying Superdome officials during the UGA-Hawaii Sugar Bowl some years ago. The whole city is a cesspool of corruption and they can have it.

In the past few months, here in the Northeast, we’ve had groups of inner city teenagers, including girls, participating in the “knockout game”. This “game” involves sucker punching an victim (at random, unknown to them) so hard the victim blacks out, with occasional robbery. We’ve even had groups of teens who’ve never met before except via social media, hop a bus, meet somewhere across town to find a victim. These descriptions from the NOLA newspaper sound like it’s going to the next level of violence.

These teens have no fear because there are rarely serious consequences to their actions, at best a year or two of probation, which they ignore.

There’s something to be said for simplicity — plus the ability to keep your gun hidden from view and fire from a pocket or purse. The bad guys won’t see it coming.

There are pockets in New Orleans that even the police don’t want to go into. Most New Orleanians get along just fine but there is an element, some even generational, that are violent, thieving, muderous ganstas. I wish I could say something positive will be done but not while Landrieu is mayor. Tough leaders are needed to turn this around. Most of this area is a food stamp, government supported group anyway.

I would think that dropping a couple of them accompanied by very loud bangs would obviate the need to drop all of them.

“Group of teens”

We’re not to infer ANYTHING from this, you know. Just a random group of teens with nothing in common with other random groups of teens that attack random victims for no known reason.

It would be absolutely “racist” for anyone to infer that this was a group of black teenage thugs who targeted an older white man (a demographic that absolutely has NOT been dehumanized by leftist propaganda for years) for racist reasons,

so don’t do that!

I think of my late friend in Chicago who carried his best friends, Smith and Wesson, as he called it, whenever he left the house.
He was parked outside a grocery while his wife shopped and about a half dozen of Obamas would be sons approached the car half way surrounding it. One reached for the car door.
My friend simply pulled his jacket back to reveal his “friends” and as he moved his hand toward it, the young men took off running.

Any estimates as to what the "rest of the cowards" were "packing"? (or can retrieve from their cars or homes)

Pistols, straight razors?

Bravado is not always the best course of action. If a surprise attack or lack of planning & intelligence leave no other options, then by all means, go for Bravado.

Know your enemy, his capabilities, training and weapons. Plan an exit strategy beforehand.

I don’t think it’s as much bravado as it is knowing their MO. They’re running in a pack, not going home to get something. They’re black punks looking for an easy target. Two shots from my .357 and I still have three left. Which probably gives ample time for an exit.

This might make a fine opportunity to do some urban hunting.

Start with a three-man team carrying trash guns. The first man is the “bait” and primary shooter. The second man is backup, just out of sight of the bad guys, and secondary shooter, if needed. The third guy is the driver, ready to evacuate the other two.

The first man feigns a limp, frequently pats his “wallet” and acts weak. But he doesn’t make it easy for his attackers, either, avoiding sneak attacks with greater distance from ambush sites. He also has good situational awareness. He actively tries to get them to charge as a group.

He and the back up open up on as many of the attackers as possible, then they quickly leave the area, moving to the evac vehicle, a van is good, then put miles between them and the attackers.

I’m all for shooting down attacking thugs. But just know that if you’re white and the perps are black you run the risk of getting a George Zimmerman style media lyching.
