    New Orleans sees 6 Murders in 4 Days

    This is absolutely unbelievable:

    [QUOTE]NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Since New Year's Day, when the police chief declared New Orleans' murder rate under control, the city has logged six homicides, including five shooting deaths in a 14-hour span.

    Three people were killed Wednesday and two early Thursday. The other was shot to death New Year's Day.

    Police also were investigating the death of a woman whose body showed trauma. The case had not been ruled a homicide.

    At a news conference on Monday, Police Superintendent Warren Riley had detailed how homicides in the city spiked in April, May and July, but he said he believed new initiatives had brought the problem under control in recent months.

    Police spokeswoman Bambi Hall said after 19 killings in October and another 19 in November, December's total was 15. There were 161 homicides in the city in 2006.

    National Guard soldiers were brought in to help patrol some neighborhoods after five teenagers were killed in one night in June. The Guard focused on areas most devastated by Hurricane Katrina so police could focus on higher-crime areas. [/QUOTE]

    And the wonderful re-elected mayor of Chocolate City isn't even quoted or mentioned in the article. Is Nagin really that incompetent? Yes. Are the police really that ineffective? Obviously, yes.

    New Orleans has had a long standing problem with their police department.

    Long before the current Mayor they have had huge corruption problems. The NOPD was lowest paid department in the country and it is still very low.

    What do the Mayor and Police have to do with people murdering each other?

    :wiggum:

    Aren't the people who violently take another person's life 100% accountable? No matter whom the Mayor is or how many Police officers they have they can't change group mores.

    If the police are corrupt, then they get paid off for allowing drug crimes etc. to exist. These are the crimes the lead to homicide.
