I was listening to New Orleans talk-radio this morning. The commentators were bragging that the New Orleans murder rate in '06 was less than Baltimore. Truth of the matter is that New Orleans' population is less than 1/2 of what it was pre-Katrina.
These big citites that continue to let these predators roam the street are in need of some serious changes in the way the criminal justice system operates.
I'll be back in New Orleans on Thursday to pick up family members from the airport (couldn't get a direct flight out of the local airport here on the Coast). You better believe I'll be packing and on orange.
