“The average perpetrator of a homicide in East Baton Rouge is between 17 and 28 years old black male, and the average victim of a homicide is the same thing,”

Gautreaux decried a culture devoid of positive reinforcement in Baton Rouge’s inner city area as the chief reason for the loss of the current generation of youth to crime.
