after squirting couple's shoes, demanding $40 for 'shoeshine'



quote:

Authorities are familiar with Funches and Brown, whom Flores described as "scam artists." Funches has a history of begging, obstructing public passages, aggressive solicitation, battery and narcotics violations. Meanwhile, police said, Brown's past includes arrests for drug offenses, aggravated battery, simple robbery, possession of stolen property, theft, resisting arrest, trespassing, disturbing the peace, begging and obstructing a public passage.

What are you going to do with POS like these guys?

If you're the city of New Orleans, apparently only start to worry about their antics when you're two weeks or so out from hosting the Super Bowl.

In 1998, I witnessed a huge brawl in the Quarter because of crap like this. NOPD should issue restraining orders on them stepping foot into the Quarter (kind of like a child molester near a school). Or, just drop them off at the Mayor's office.

When you have the 60 day arrests for murder in NOLA, do you really think that shoes mean a damn? It is a very fine display for advertising the city to future tourists, but that has been the case for far too long.

issue restraining orders


miscreants with ankle bracelet monitors on house confinement are routinely arrested for other offenses, restraining orders are ignored, and if you get charged for violation our judges more than likely let them out ROR

disruption of Black families by incarceration is frowned upon by much of our judiciary and the Times Picayune editorial staff

Give them a fair trial. Upon conviction, give them an hour each with their families. Then take them behind the courthouse and cave in their skulls with a hammer. Don't bother wasting a bullet on them. Bullets are too valuable these days.

It's really not as common as you think and anyone with half a brain should know not to give in to this crap.
I haven't seen it tried in at least 5 years.

With that said, these dudes need to just go for a swim in the river with weights on their legs. I hate scum.

If we had more social services in this Country, these poor men wouldn't have to resort to belittling themselves. The government needs to empower them.

I was by Cafe Du Monde not too long ago and as I was walking by I heard some guy telling a tourist "I bet I know where you got your shoes"

Let them spend a hour with Jarvis Deberry so he can get a true representation of this shite.....and maybe his tone will change.

Pretty much all these guys will use that line as their intro. It's not always easy for tourists from Des Moines to distinguish those who are just representing and carrying on a fine tradition of "local color" from those who may be trying to extort $40 or more from them.

That's what I remember. Last time it happened to me he walked up and started with the "I bet I know where you" crap and I noticed he had shoe polish and a rag in his hand. Before he could even finish I just told him to get lost and I went the other way.

BTAIM, extortion remains a subjective standard.
