Erin's Murphy is our house guest until June 1st. He loves it here because we have green beans for supper. He also loves - yelling at tourists, yelling at the mail lady, annoying Max, getting Dingo sticks and sleeping in the bed while Henri and Isabelle sleep on the floor. He does not like his Mom coming by to walk him, going to the 3rd floor or strangers that visit.
I am pretty sure I was just on Candid Camera... Allen Funt - was that you?
I just asked a potential candidate whom I spoke to on the phone about potentially helping us with Administrative support from June - September. (She is a University Sophomore.) I asked her to tell me three things I would not know about her from her resume.
SWEAR and I quote - she said - #1. "When I grow up I want to be Sleeping Beauty".
I ended the call. I think between Megan and Erin, we will just take care of it ourselves.
Shawn Scott (Akein's brother) in custody leaving 5th District station.
“Investigators learned that four people were aware that Akein Scott was wanted for last Sunday’s shooting, but did not turn him in and instead, provided him comfort and aid. These individuals are 32-year-old Nakia Youngblood, 22-year-old Bionca Hickerson, 28-year-old Brandy George and 19-year old Justin Alexander. All four are in custody, and are charged with Accessory After the Fact of Attempted Second Degree Murder and Relative to Obstruction of Justice by Harboring a Fugitive. And through further investigation, detectives learned that 24-year-old Shawn Scott, Akein’s big brother, also participated in this crime- which gave us probable cause to seek an arrest warrant for him.
The NOPD and the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force headed out again at 7 this morning, and located Shawn Scott in the 9600-block of Haynes Boulevard. He attempted to flee, but was quickly apprehended.
He, like his brother, will be booked with 20-counts of Attempted Second Degree Murder as well as charges for possession of cocaine and heroin. At this time, he’s still being interviewed by investigators.
We believe that Akein and Shawn are involved in Gangs and are associated with the Frenchmen and Derbigny Boys. I can’t tell you the pride I have today in the NOPD and the people of New Orleans. It’s such an honor, and a privilege to work with the men and women of this police department. The Fifth District lead detectives Robert Hurst, Rayell Johnson and Sgt Gary Lacabe simply did extraordinary work. And they had exemplary leadership in Commander Chris Goodly and Lt Chris Hart. And of course we want to thank all members of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force who work with us- which includes all local, state and federal agency law enforcement partners.
And it’s also important to thank the people of New Orleans, who chose to stand with us- and not with the cowards, who caused much more than injury- but caused fear and intimidation. Those cowards lost today. .. and we have won. We are seeing a change in New Orleans…an IMPORTANT change. By using Crime Stoppers to anonymously and safely report information to help us, the fear and intimidation that Gangs try to use to operate are disappearing – now, we get a lot of information and the Gangs NEVER KNOW WHO TOLD US!", said Chief Serpas.
Dear Akein: You changed a lot of things and lives on Mother's Day. They had to "capture you". You could not turn yourself in? Coward. You know your "little friends"? They are going to really enjoy spending that money they got for helping the police find you. The sooner you learn the streets are not your friend, the better you will be. Peace be with your loved ones... I am sure this is not the life they dreamed of for you.
PS - Tell the police who else were involved... you were not alone. Save some lives - mainly perhaps your "friends" lives.

New Orleans Pet Care - Lagniappe
A few years ago, one of my team members suggested that we add a permanent blog to our web site. As you may know, we do have an interactive Emergency Page that we use during Hurricane Season if necessary.
This sounded like a fantastic way to share information, ideas, photographs, stories, etc!
I started working on it just before Remy was diagnosed with cancer... and on March 27, 2008 (two months after he died) I started working on it again.
Nicole Douget Owner & Operator New Orleans Pet Care
I love this company with all that I have... And we give it our all. This is my passion, not my hobby... Remy's legacy leads me to continue our work here... not only with excellent pet care but it also affords me the opportunity to support the rescue/transport organizations that are so important to me. We will continue to differentiate ourselves by making sure we have a full team... ready to go everyday. We will never take vacation, we are 24/7, 365 days... we will be there when you can't. We love them like you love them. We always have and we always will!
