sorry about the kinfolk's strato, they do have big cities in the country that have lower crime rates , theres no excuses that we can get the right people in here to get it done, no matter if it takes help from the military to get the scum of the streeets patroling the cracks and cranny's in the city. its full of police in the french quarter/bourbon street. what we need is for them to patrol the side streets to them also. allready that takes the crimes down atomatic.we patrol iraq with thousands at night why not the big easy with the same ideas. the crime problems has to open the eye's of top free agents in the nfl, not helping us maybe in landing a few.

But it does stop the same ones from killing again. Many parts of South Texas is probably even worse than NOLA I'm sure.

Cowardly? You can't blame people for wanting to raise their families in safety.


I live on the coast and for the first time ever I have real reservations about taking my wife and kids to visit NOLA.

NOLA better get a handle on this quick. The city will see a huge drop in tourism, which means an even worse economy and more crime. A death spiral.

Re: Drew Brees tweets a message to all New Orleanians.

I know that I am going to tick off some people when I say this, but it's what I believe whole heartedly. This whole "gangster" mentallity, stems from the popular music, movies, television, and magazines. The "thug life" creed, has killed many decent hard working Americans, and until the media takes responsibility for putting these criminals, in the position of role models for young people, this entire country is in jeopardy.

Used to be, when I was growing up, that going to prison, was considered the most horrible thing, a person could do. Now you have rappers almost bragging about their gang affiliations, their pasts that consist of drug dealing, pimping, and killing for profit. This is what I would say 90 percent of todays young people are looking at, as their lifestyle choice.

In this country we glorify murderer's, and do blockbuster movies about their lives, while their victims lie silent in 6 foot deep holes, with only their families grieving, to stand as their rememberance. We have guys like 50 cent, a proclaimed ex crack dealer, and pimp, hanging on our kids bedroom walls! Kids getting killed on their way home from school, FOR THEIR FREAKING SHOES.

There is a way to stop this junk, but it isn't the cops, and the politicians who are going to do the most damage, it's us, the consumers! Until we stop buying their products, stop paying to see their movies, and just basically turn our backs on this group of domestic terrorists, then NOTHING will change.

"Its just music", "I don't tell anyone how to live their life", "everyone makes their own choices." "I am not a role model". Here's a newsflash for you, YES U ARE. As soon as you became famous, for whatever reason, you put yourself in the spotlight, as someone for young people to look up to, and emmulate. But, since these money grubbing media wh&^%s, will never take responsibility, for things that make them millions of dollars daily, it falls on us. Citizens, friends, and parents, to open kids eyes to these false idols, and get them on track to being something better than a no good, piece of crap, wanna be street thug.

Sorry for the soapbox, but I see this kind of thing everyday, here in San Francisco, and honestly it makes me wanna puke. Like I said, and I will say it again, because it needs to be said, over, and over again. The cops, and the politicians, are not going to do anything, but band aid, an already out of control situation. You want stuff like this to stop? Then it's up to you to stop it.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

I agree with this post. San Francisco has seen an incredible drop in tourism over the past five years, since certain sections of the city, (tenderloin, castro, north beach, downtown) have basically become havens for lowlifes, pimps, drug dealers, and 16-18 year old gangs roving around. It will happen, and when the city starts losing citizens, and all the sudden these same dregs, can't afford a pot to pee in, they will blame everyone else but themselves. I personally think we should ship everyone of them to Antarctica, to live out the rest of their useless lives, killing each other off, but that's just me.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....
