French Quarter visitors shocked by violent attack, robbery of two tourists


IS AN INCIDENT THAT LEFT MANY PEOPLE IN THE FRENCH QUARTER STUNNED. THE ROBBERY HAPPENED IN THE FRENCH QUARTER AROUND 9:00 P.M. SATURDAY NIGHT BIENVILLE, STEPS OFF N. PETERS OUTSIDE THE HISTORIC FRENCH QUARTER. QUITE I FEEL THIS WAS AN EXTREMELY BRAZEN CRIME EVEN FOR WHERE WE ARE IN THE FRENCH QUARTER. TRAVERS: THE VICTIMS ARE IDENTIFIED AS TIM BURN AND JAMES CURRAN, THAT’S BURN ON THE RIGHT OF YOUR SCREEN. BOTH MEN ARE STAFFERS FOR THE UNITATARIAN UNIVERSALIST ASSOCIATION, A RELIGOUS GROUP, BASED IN BOSTO THEY WERE WALKING BACK TO THEIR HOTEL WHEN THE ATTACK HAPPENED.>>NOT NECESSARILY GOING TO BE THINKING AT EVERY CORNER AND I GOING TO GET MUGGED IN THE MOST POPULATED PART OF THE CITY. TRAVERS: IN THE VIDEO, YOU SUDDENLY SEE TWO MEN RUN UP FROM BEHIND ON THE VICTIMS, STRIKING BOTH IN THEIR HEADS. BOTH VICTIMS FALL TO THE GROUND, ONE MAN WAS HIT SO HARD HE STARTS BLEEDING. THEN TWO MORE MEN APPROACH AND ALL 4 STEAL THE VICTIM’S BELONGINGS AND RUN OFF. IN THE VIDEO, YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE ONE OF THE SUSPECTS COME BACK AND HE APPEARS TO BE CHECKING ON THE MAN, WHO’S LYING MOTIONLESS. THEN THE SUSPECT TAKES OFF AGAIN.>>IF YOU LOOK AT THE VIDEO, IT SEEMS EVIDENT THAT THEY WERE ATTACKED FROM BEHIND, DID NOT SEE IT COMING AND DID NOT FIGHT BACK. THEY WERE SIMPLY VICTIMIZED. TRAVERS: UUA HAD NO COMMENT AND ASKED FOR PRIVACY FOR THE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES. BUT PEOPLE IN THE CITY’S MOST FAMOUS NEIGHBORHOOD HAD PLENTY TO SAY.>>IT FEELS VERY SAD AND KIND OF HOPELESS SOMETIMES.

  1. Money is not worth stealing folks. If it's that bad start from scratch to see where you're going wrong at in your search for a job or a new beginning.

  2. Such a con. The media searches high and low for someone to say they are shocked by it. To carry water for their narrative. May be the only people surprised by this ARE visitors. And I'm sure you want to keep it that way. This is why the police and media work together to suppress crime statistics. Meanwhile you do everything possible to deny those who DO know there is a problem from having a voice. Interview Colin Flaherty – ask him how much of a "shocker" this is.

  3. Blacks attack Whites daily. Watch Colin Flaherty on YouTube, he documents blacks daily crimes against White's.

  4. I would like to ask anyone reading this why don't we have the kind of punishment here as they do in Saudi Arabia where they simply cut off the hands and heads of the perpetrators? Wouldn't that send a message?
