NOPD Flatfoot Asleep at the Switch

New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Sgt. Nick Gernin has yet to follow up with one of the most important leads so far in the brutal assault of Allee Bautsch and Joe Brown – preliminary identification of one of the perps. Gernin, of the NOPD’s Eighth District was assigned to investigate the crime.

Yesterday, Scott McKay, editor and publisher of The Hayride, emailed to Bautsch some photos of the mob of protesters who before the assault had been protesting a GOP fundraiser at a French Quarter restaurant.

Bautsch made a preliminary ID of her assailant. McKay immediately tried to contact the detective to inform him of this important piece of evidence.

As of 8:00 AM today, Gernin had made no effort to return McKay’s phone call.

McKay posted on his news blog thus:

The picture at left, of which we now have several shots, is of an individual who, if he isn’t the prime suspect in the beating of Allee Bautsch and Joe Brown, sure ought to be. Bautsch told me via e-mail this morning that the suspect she and Joe Brown described to the police “looked exactly like that, and so did the rest of them (with different color hair).” She took pains to say that she can’t make a positive identification of this man as one of her attackers, but he fits the description they gave to the New Orleans police. This is someone who needs to be questioned about the attack; there are two YouTube videos still available on which he appears.

We are astonished at this lack of police interest in this case. We there fore ask again this question:

Is NOPD Fit to Investigate French Qtr Assault?

Lincoln Parish News Online will continue to report on this story.

    Bobby Jindal is beginning to look as impotent as NOPD is inept and corrupt. Allee Bautsch is an employee in Jindal’s close circle and he has nothing to say about this horrendous crime against her and Joe Brown. He also appears to be doing nothing about catching her attackers and condemning those who organized, incited and/or sponsored their behavior.

    Governor it is overdue to speak out and to replace the inept, corrupt, and Democrat New Orleans Police Department and City Hall with State agencies and leadership on this case; and overdue to place justice and concern for Allee and Joe above political timidity.

    Any new news on the Brown/Bautsch assault? Has any actual proof surfaced that liberal protesters were responsible for this, or are you still just assuming that they were?

    She is a problem drinker that got into a fight with her boyfriend after having a lot too many, then blaming it on “hippy libs.” She was recently arrested on DWI charges. See for your self!
