The Dugué Defense
The Dugué Defense is predicated on the NEW ORLEANS POLICE
DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATIVE SUPPORT DIVISION MAJOR CASE HOMICIDE SECTION J-05934-05 Incident Report, Incident: Attempted Murder
Of A Police Officer, dated October 14, 2005, at 10:00 a.m.
This page and associated
links have been created to present a fair and impartial examination of the facts surrounding the events occurring on September
4, 2005, on the Danziger Bridge in New Orleans, Louisiana, as these events relate to then Sergeant Gerard Dugué
of the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), who is now retired.
It is called a "defense" because information presented in the report vindicates Sgt. Dugué and strongly suggests
that he should never have been indicted. Another reason why it is called "defense" is due to the fact that major
media outlets in New Orleans--and elsewhere--have already convicted Sgt. Dugué, along with
those who have admitted their guilt, as they put him on trial in the court of public opinion.
The media, both print and electronic, in effect have become an extension of the prosecutorial arm of the Justice
Department in its ill-advised federal case against Sgt. Dugué.
Finally, in the end, you the reader will make your own judgement. All we ask is that you consider the facts,
then decide for yourself. Of course, your comments are welcome. Simply enter them in this site's "Contact" link.
