The French Quarter Fracas: D-Bloc (Bautsch Maiming - New Information)
The Hayride ^ | April 20, 2010 | Scott McKay

Posted on 04/21/2010 2:29:22 AM PDT by abb

UPDATE, 10:35 p.m.: It’s possible we may have found out who “D-Bloc” is.

If you’ll recall, “D-Bloc” is the lead blogger on the Iron Rail Book Collective’s web site. He’s the guy who has bragged about vandalizing banks in the French Quarter and he was the guy who boasted on Gambit Weekly’s Blog Of New Orleans that on April 9 the protest went well because:

Tons of direct confrontation. New Orleans bared its teeth and snarled, and the rich plutocrats shat themselves in fear.

Also in the same comment section, D-Bloc posted a few days later, when the blogosphere began to pick up the story of the attack on Allee Bautsch and Joe Brown, that:

Look, some flea-bitten right-wing blog is linking! FYI, any out-of-town republicans reading this, I’m just sorry y’all weren’t at the corner of Royal & Canal Saturday night.

For those who aren’t aware, on the corner of Royal and Canal Streets on the night of April 10, eight people were shot in a senseless act of violence unrelated to the Allee Bautsch case.

Well, we’ve found a MySpace page belonging to someone who calls himself “D-Bloc” and whose name, apparently, is David Klegin. The page is private, but it does say he’s 24 years old and he’s in New Orleans.

And as you can see, the picture he uses for his profile has gang bandannas, knives and brass knuckles.

We’re working on it.

UPDATE, 7:35 p.m.: Not a lot of developments today, but we are reliably informed by very well-placed sources that the official investigation does, in fact, have as part of its focus the angle of the protest and its organizers. Furthermore, the YouTube videos that Daniel Mauch made private (isn’t it just a little ironic that an anarcho-communist who wants to destroy the concept of private property is engaged in attempting to deny the public the use of his intellectual property?) have been captured and downloaded and are in the possession of the authorities.

This is not to say that an arrest is imminent. But while the political angle to the attack is being downplayed by official channels, it is without question a major part of the investigation, which is heating up.

Good! Glad to hear that there is an active investigation.

I want to see a few creeps under arrest and in handcuffs before summer comes.

From an earlier update at the Hayride:

"He was on the scene, he was part of the protest and the victims say he looks “exactly” like one of the assailants, right down to what he was wearing."

Did someone get the photos to Allee?

Yes. Check out The Hayride update from Monday afternoon. He emailed the photos to her and she made a preliminary ID.

Why bother having the NOPD.

More has been done by bloggers at the Hayride and FR in the last couple weeks than what NOPD has investigated in the last 8 years.

Thanks for this site JimRob.

I just KNOW I've seen this long-haired, maggot somewhere during the past year and as I can't remember where and it's driving me nuts.

Can't remember if it was a a G-20 Demonstration or some other anti-war, anti-Bush scene.

Haven't had much time to look since first seeing these pics but will keep at it.

Due to the NOPD’s incompetence, this maggot has long ago left New Orleans. Likely he was an imported species anyway.

But he’ll be found.

I just KNOW I've seen this long-haired, maggot somewhere during the past year and as I can't remember where and it's driving me nuts.

Was the recent protest near the corner of Poydras and Camp Streets in NOLA? I'm pretty sure the building in the background of the larger photo is the 5th U.S. Circuit Appellate Court. That's a popular place for these lice-ridden types to congregate in New Orleans.

I'm pretty sure I've seen this turd before, too - but he may indeed be a "local". Always available to travel as part of the Dems' "protesters for hire" mob, but I wouldn't assume that he's left the state. I'd be surprised if he has a permanent address, though.

The protest began at the foot of Poydras Street at the Hilton Riverside. That was where most of the events for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference were taking place. According to accounts, fliers were distributed amongst the mob telling of the fundraising event at Brennan’s on Royal Street that night.

The mob then in late afternoon proceeded as a group up Canal or Poydras to the intersection of Royal and thence to the restaurant. That’s about 8-10 blocks.

If you look at the photos and video of the mob at Brennan’s, you’ll see a big building in the background. That is Louisiana’s State Supreme Court Building.

Where Bautsch and Brown were attacked was literally on the sidewalk outside that building.

This is one long haired maggot that may soon discover the error of his ways.

Its good to see that bloggers are doing the cops job for them.

First bloggers had to do the media’s job and now the cops. Geesh, whats next?

I understand their “crack” (head?) detective is on this, taking only 6 days to interview the victims! Now that is prime time TV show material.

Any word from Jindal yet?

I mean beyond, "No comment."

Are the NOLA cops smart enough to analyze the agitator's cell phone(s), means of support, and other connections? Need a national Republican Voice to comment on this. It should be a big story.

The threads connecting this to the White House staff are not all that subtle.

Jindal may have come down with a political strain of the "Battered Wife Syndrome." If we don't stop bugging him about it, he'll start blaming us for the problem. You did see kristinn's thread Monday about how there was a "whisper campaign" blaming it all on Allee and how she had a "sassy mouth."

This is the kind of goon you see on the streets in Flagstaff, AZ every day, either riding an expensive bicycle (traded for drugs from some trust fund hippie) or working the Grand Canyon tourists for spare change. Flag’s location results in a crowd of road lizards every summer either going to or from the West Coast. The “unexpected” wave of prosperity this summer will probably result in a heavier than usual infestation. Bad news POS like this one have turned up here as they made their way from one vermin pit to another; Charlie Manson once, back in the day. Our Republican HQ was egged and rocked in the last election. The incident made the second page of the little local paper. If it had been the ‘Rat HQ there would have been Pearl Harbor headlines. It’s that kind of town.

UPDATE from Hayride:

Originally, we found a MySpace page which looked like it might belong to the D-Bloc in question. That wasn’t the guy, so we’ve taken that report down. With a reasonably high degree of confidence we think “D-Bloc” is someone named Dylan Barr.

The evidence that this guy is the one we’re looking for is piling up fast, and we’re going to have an entire post on him shortly.

If you can find some of the older collections of photos from the more malignant anti-Bush protests, there’s a guy with signs that say something to the effect of “Bomb Bush’s house. Kill him” with some sort of small-print disclaimer like “In my opinion” to try to scare away the Secret Service.

This guy in NO looks like a hairier, less-shaved version of that guy.
