The NOMB endures Mardi Gras Zone because its our way to endure. Still, we got no problem looking the other way when someone gets mad enough to shoot it. The following two incidents were reported at the same exact time about five blocks across and four blocks down from one another. Maybe someone fucking around with a BB gun? Still, how'd that pellet/bullet move so far diagonally?

2) On Friday at 11:39pm the victim was walking at Port and Royal Sts. The victim said he heard a noise and an object ricochet off a building and hit him on the eye. The victim went to notify police and observed someone speaking with the police about being shot. Marigny, 'Aggravated Battery' by Shooting

3) On Friday, March 27, 2009 at about 11:39pm the victim was in the 1000 block of Piety St. The victim heard several gunshots and at this time a pellet struck her. Bywater, 'Aggravated Battery' by Shooting

Love thy neighbor

Homicide?... So sayeth the district email blast.

1) On Saturday, March 21, 2009 at about 2:38am, while inside the Saturn Bar 3000 St. Claude, the victim was involved in an altercation with the wanted subjects. The altercation spilled into the streets when at this time the victim was struck by an unknown vehicle. The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.

We know, not so many people live up in the 1900 block of Port these days. We know, it happened at night. Still, 12 hours is a long wait for the bus, even in the NO.

2) Alvin Smith, 21, was found shot to death in front of an abandoned apartment complex in the 1900 block of Port Street this morning [Monday, 23rd]. Smith had likely been left on the sidewalk in front of the home for at least 12 hours.

Protect and Serve

1) A man who allegedly forced his way into three New Orleans homes and victimized three Hispanic women was an one-year veteran of the New Orleans Police Department, according to Police Superintendent Warren Riley. Police identified the officer as Darrius Clipps of the 2nd District. The NOPD originally described the suspect as a man "impersonating" an officer or security guard.

2) "Patrolling Algiers one August night, New Orleans police officer Stephen Neveaux and his partner hear a series of explosions. He drives toward the noise. The police car pushes on. The gunman glances at the cops, then turns and fires twice again into darkness. When Neveaux's moment came that night, he chose to hold his fire and let the car crawl forward. According to the New Orleans Police Department, what Neveaux did was wrong. So wrong, in fact, that internal investigators cited him for cowardice and neglect of duty. Superintendent Warren Riley fired Neveaux."

#1 first appeared in the district email blast about 5 days ago. We suppose that means the composite sketch was drawn around that time. Floatin' round the office...

Officer Neveaux got the last word on #2: "You can't say what you would have done. You weren't there." Not being police officers, indeed we cannot.
