Police Search Door to Door After Mother’s Day Shooting in New Orleans

Victim of shooting at Mother's Day Parade in New OrleansThe IntelliHub- by JG Vibes

19 people were wounded in New Orleans over the weekend when an alleged gang shootout broke out in the middle of a mothers day parade.  three suspects are still at large, and the hunt for them so far has involved similar tactics as those used in Boston.  At this point there is no indication that this was a planned terrorist attack, but regardless, police are still using the full on storm trooper approach that has now become commonplace in the western world.  

Blackbluedog.com reported that:

“There were over 300 people participating in the event, north of the city.   Police say that the number of victims stands at 12 and there are three suspects who were responsible.   The individuals who did the shooting were seen running toward Claiborne Avenue and a door-to-door search is being conducted to find those who are responsible.”

While a number of mainstream media sources are reporting that door to door searchers are being conducted, there is no outrage or even concern for the innocent human beings who are having their rights and privacy violated by jackboot thugs.  It is definitely true that this is tragic circumstance, but tragic circumstances are no excuse to violate the rights and privacy of others.  It is definitely upsetting when these kinds of things happen, but we should not let our good natured emotions be used against us.

With that being said this investigation is also being crowd sourced, and it is likely that people nearby with cell phone camera evidence will make a lot more progress than police breaking down doors.

RT reported that:

“An initial $2,500 cash reward was initially offered, which was later raised to $10,000 amid the massive manhunt for parade shooting suspects. The money is offered to anyone who can provide information that will help track down and arrest the suspects.  In the same way investigators of the Boston Marathon Bombings appealed for crowdsourced photographs, police have urged anyone with any images from the ‘second line’ of the parade to step forward.”

As of now there has been no indication as to whether the police even know who they are looking for or not.  We will bring more details on this story as they become available, and if you have any information about this situation please feel free to comment below.

  1. Not sayin’ I know what the heck took place in NOLA. If there were actual shootings and injuries, I apologize and wish everyone a speedy recovery. But there are some very odd things about this story –

    – It could have been a little community or spontaneous “parade” of cars on Frenchmen Street, but I don’t see any New Orleans-style parade in any of the still shots, and the city of New Orleans had no Mother’s Day parade scheduled this year or in 2012 (I checked the events calendars).

    – The video with still images featured on FTT (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1ITgHpsk2J8) shows what looks like a block party.

    – Except for the opening still photo for the video that shows a couple of whities walking amongst the blacks, the rest of the stills show only blacks congregated on the street. Yet the Intellihub photo shows only whites who are not EMTs “compassionately” attending to the black man down on the pavement.

    – The only “blood” on the street is the plop of it in the picture at the top of this page’s article. Real blood doesn’t maintain a shape like the blob from the swamp in the old horror films; it runs, spatters, smears, and oxidizes. There is a patent for an artificial blood puddle (http://www.google.com/patents/US20070155517) “intended to be placed on a surface for filming…This device eliminates the clean up process involved when artificial liquid blood is used in film, television and theatrical productions….”

    – Where are the pictures of NOLA SWAT teams with their grownup-sized Mattel mini tanks going door to door and playing gestapo in the neighborhood? Oh, that’s right.. in New Orleans they really would get their heads shot off breaking into homes, dragging people out, and groping them.

    1. I ain’t fallin’ for the banana in the tailpipe this time either, Enbe.

      They’ve gone to the well far too often.
