VIDEO: Man turns tables on shotgun-wielding attacker

Afterward, the criminal tried to get his gun back and the guy smashed his windshield in with it instead of giving it back. Way to go!

Just a typical day in New Orleans


Even with crime cameras plastered all over in the French Quarter and nearby Marigny areas, the criminals still roam the streets beating and killing people. This perp lost this confrontation but that is the exception.

Here is another day in the life of a New Orleanian.

New Orleans is a hellhole in which to live, and Mayor Mitch Landrieu, (Sen. Mary Landrieu's brother) has done nothing to control the violence.

Double loss

First he got his cell phone stolen. (The accompanying text says the perp returned and picked it up.) Then apparently the victim called the cops, who undoubtedly stole the shotgun from him.

If you have ever been fortunate enough to be trained self-defense through martial arts, this is how you are taught to respond.

Simultaneous hand swipe/grab while stepping away from gun point.

Learn and live, or buy yourself time to run away.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.


this is just another false flag attack by the fbi. the 'robber's' brother is actually on the payroll of the cia.

or.. you guys are just fucking idiots.

You're an idiot if

You are out walking the sidewalks at 5:00 am.

Now that's a gun grab we

Now that's a gun grab we should all be for!

Thanks. That's where I found this.

I guess, just like anything, this could be fake. But, the media doesn't seem to be puffing it, so I think it's real.

something doesn't seem right

the criminal ran away much too quick, almost handing the shotgun away.

is this staged event to show we don't need guns to defend ourselves?

I'm a bit suspicious about everything these days.

I Suspect

"Tom Foolery" on this one. Too smooth. Looks choreographed. Why would the perp pump/cock the shotgun as he approached? Dramatic effect? Even an armed robber idiot would already have the weapon ready. Besides I can tell by the sound of the action there was no shell rammed into the chamber. The most danger the supposed victim was in, was having his friend stick an un-loaded shotgun in his face.

I think it's real. I watched several times, and everything I would expect fits. Note also I've been the victim of armed robbery.

First, if it was choreographed the victim should have reacted differently to the pump action. Watching the video it seems he didn't initially react to the noise, which would be expected, because one wouldn't expect to hear such a noise usually.

Second, the attacker does things as I would expect. He is trying to intimidate his victim, probably why he pumps the action (famous warning). Then he says "now" as in "what are you going to do now? I'm sticking a loaded shotgun in your face". Then he says "give me the money". I don't know about a shell being rammed into the chamber, but if there wasn't one it may have been because the attacker didn't actually want to kill anyone. He is clearly trying to scare the victim into compliance. Unfortunately, he fails to understand about street fighting and distance.

Uh huh...

That's what I mean, no way you, me or they would get that close. That is asking to get it (the gun) taken away. All you have to do is stand back and have the guy put the money on the ground. Its also perfectly framed in the camera (whose ever camera it is).

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.


but you or I are smart enough not to be criminals. Criminals are often dumb (often young/naieve) and do dumb things, there are tons of videos on that subject.

Also, if you watch the video to the end you see the victim drops his cell phone, which the link above to the Yahoo article says happened. Dropping the phone would be some serious choreographed scripting.

Yes, everything must be staged....

Trust no one at all, they are all out to get you...
