Bourbon Street Tourism Workers Support NOPD Shooting

July 12, 2011  | 

"Kudos to the NOPD. That guy came looking for trouble. And he got it," said Bourbon Street fixture, bartender Pinkeee and the Whip, who tends bar at the two Beer Fest venues, in the 600 and 400 blocks of Bourbon and whose name reflects both the color of his hair and beard, and the leather cat-o-nine-tails slung over his shoulder.

William Sahms, who works at Babe's Cabaret, a half-block from where Justin Schaubert was shot, shared Pinkeee's sentiment. "This wasn't the NOPD being trigger-happy," Sahms said. "They did the right thing, 100 percent."

Accounts passing along the city's legendary entertainment strip on Monday had it that Schaubert, a gun-toting man from New Iberia, flashed his large-caliber gun inside several Bourbon Street clubs before running outside the Bourbon Street Blues Company and firing at the officer and bouncers.
