"Louis Armstrong arrested as "suspicious & dangerous" age 9 in 1910"

just to be clear this is prior to his arrest in 1913 for shooting a gun on new years eve. this was just a round-up.

Down the street, between Gravier Street and Tulane Avenue, police put a stop to something else. Six boys were arrested there "for being dangerous and suspicious characters," according to a brief on page 4 of the following day's Daily Picayune.

"Detectives Charles Mellen, William Kennedy, John Dantonio and Patrolman Anthony Sabrier arrested Henry Smith, of Lafayette and Fulton; James Kent, of 338 Saratoga Street; Archie Anderson, of 631 Dryades Street; Willie Telfry, of 416 S. Franklin Street; Louis Armstrong, of Perdido, between Liberty and Franklin streets; and Eddie Moore, of Liberty, between Gravier and Perdido streets," the paper said.

Armstrong was 9.

over a hundred years and ain't a damn thing changed.

the whole article is interesting. though i must side against the we should be thankful for it because it led to him becoming the great trumpeter angle.

That merits some kind of policing.

EDIT: I see this isn't the 1912 New Years Eve incident where they were shooting a gun.

Louie' as he was called then was lickin off shots on New Years Eve I believe it was and was sent to the "colored waifs" home

If I see a 9 yr old shooting a gun, I'd considered his ass dangerous too lmao

troubled kid who got into lots of trouble because of his upbringing, so it's not unreasonable to believe he and the "bad boys" he ran with back then weren't up to something

The area he grew up in was called the "battlefield"

Also you have people not wanting to face the reality that White-America dislikes them in 2014 the same way it did in 1910.

As hateful as some, a lot, of white ppl have historically been towards Negroes in America, we still shouldn't categorize race-relations between us and the dominant society as (all) "white-America" dislikes us...because it isn't and has never been ALL white ppl who were hostile to us

Take for instance, Louie Armstrong, who this post is abt, had it not been for a white family the world would've never gotten to know him as the greatest trumpeter ever - they bought him his first coronet and always encouraged him to continue to get better

That same white family also made sure he ate a home-cooked meal every night ...because they knew Armstrong came from a very broken home

And this was at a time when the country was nearly torn apart because of racism/slavery
