SHOT AN OFFICER
The bloodiest week which New Orleans has known since the massacre of the
Italians in 1892 was ushered in Monday, July 24, by the inexcusable and
unprovoked assault upon two colored men by police officers of New Orleans.
Fortified by the assurance born of long experience in the New Orleans service,
three policemen, Sergeant Aucoin, Officer Mora and Officer Cantrelle, observing

two colored men sitting on doorsteps on Dryades street, between Washington
Avenue and 6th Streets, determined, without a shadow of authority, to arrest
them. One of the colored men was named Robert Charles, the other was a lad
of nineteen named Leonard Pierce. The colored men had left their homes, a few
blocks distant, about an hour prior, and had been sitting upon the doorsteps
for a short time talking together. They had not broken the peace in any way
whatever, no warrant was in the policemen's hands justifying their arrest, and
no crime had been committed of which they were the suspects. The policemen,
however, secure in the firm belief that they could do anything to a Negro that
they wished, approached the two men, and in less than three minutes from the
time they accosted them attempted to put both colored men under arrest. The
younger of the two men, Pierce, submitted to arrest, for the officer, Cantrelle,
who accosted him, put his gun in the young man's face ready to blow his
brains out if he moved. The other colored man, Charles, was made the victim of
a savage attack by Officer Mora, who used a billet and then drew a gun and
tried to kill Charles. Charles drew his gun nearly as quickly as the policeman,
and began a duel in the street, in which both participants were shot. The
policeman got the worst of the duel, and fell helpless to the sidewalk. Charles
made his escape. Cantrelle took Pierce, his captive, to the police station, to
which place Mora, the wounded officer, was also taken, and a man hunt at
once instituted for Charles, the wounded fugitive.
In any law-abiding community Charles would have been justified in delivering
himself up immediately to the properly constituted authorities and asking a
trial by a jury of his peers. He could have been certain that in resisting an
unwarranted arrest he had a right to defend his life, even to the point of taking
one in that defense, but Charles knew that his arrest in New Orleans, even for
defending his life, meant nothing short of a long term in the penitentiary, and
still more probable death by lynching at the hands of a cowardly mob. He very
bravely determined to protect his life as long as he had breath in his body and
strength to draw a hair trigger on his would-be murderers. How well he was
justified in that belief is well shown by the newspaper accounts which were
given of this transaction. Without a single line of evidence to justify the
assertion, the New Orleans daily papers at once declared that both Pierce and
Charles were desperadoes, that they were contemplating a burglary and that
they began the assault upon the policemen. It is interesting to note how the
two leading papers of New Orleans, the Picayune and the Times-Democrat, exert
themselves to justify the policemen in the absolutely unprovoked attack upon
the two colored men. As these two papers did all in their power to give an
excuse for the action of the policemen, it is interesting to note their versions.
The Times-Democrat of Tuesday morning, the twenty-fifth, says:
Two blacks, who are desperate men, and no doubt will be proven burglars,
made it interesting and dangerous for three bluecoats on Dryades street,
between Washington Avenue and Sixth Street, the Negroes using pistols first
and dropping Patrolman Mora. But the desperate darkies did not go free, for
the taller of the two, Robinson, is badly wounded and under cover, while
Leonard Pierce is in jail.
For a long time that particular neighborhood has been troubled with bad
Negroes, and the neighbors were complaining to the Sixth Precinct police about
them. But of late Pierce and Robinson had been camping on a door step on the
street, and the people regarded their actions as suspicious. It got to such a
point that some of the residents were afraid to go to bed, and last night this
was told Sergeant Aucoin, who was rounding up his men. He had just picked
up Officers Mora and Cantrell, on Washington Avenue and Dryades Street, and
catching a glimpse of the blacks on the steps, he said he would go over and
warn the men to get away from the street. So the patrolmen followed, and
Sergeant Aucoin asked the smaller fellow, Pierce, if he lived there. The answer
was short and impertinent, the black saying he did not, and with that both
Pierce and Robinson drew up to their full height.
