New Orleans - What a mess

JusticePost-Katrina New Orleans turns into crime haven The Washington Times Crime described as the one part of society that is back to work in NOLA. So what are people doing? Asking for more federal money.

A few items...
  • Crime up 107% so far this year
  • Murder rate 20% higher than any other US city
  • 1 conviction and 160 murders last year
  • 3000 criminal cases dismissed due to waiting too long
Veteran cops have left the force, since conditions are horrible.
Anthony Cannatella, deputy superintendent of the New Orleans Police Department, described how a lack of juvenile detention facilities resulted in the nearly immediate release of a 14-year-old girl who had robbed a tourist at gunpoint.
Who would want to live or work in an environment like that? [NRA-ILA]
