The inner city culture of gangsterism and violence which is present in many large cities across the nation. In this regard New Orleans is no different than Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, or St. Louis. This said, the police are also stretched thin with budget cuts, and there's a liberal justice system that gives people a slap on the wrist vs hard time which means many people don't fear going to jail because they'll be out quickly anyway, and while in prison they meet more criminals they can engage in crime with and make new connections.

Illegal immigration has increased in New Orleans since Katrina, since illegals flooded into the city during the reconstruction, and this has led to its own increase in crime and drugs. This is associated with the formation of Latin gangs and connections with Mexican drug cartels. This has at least balanced out the criminal elements that have left the city during Katrina and never returned. (I personally know MANY people in Baton Rouge, Hammond, Lafayette, and Alexandria who attribute crime in these areas to Katrina evacuees.)

Having said this, I feel that at least in New Orleans, the crime seems limited to certain areas within the city, compared to other metros like Baltimore, Los Angeles, Miami and Philadelphia where wide swaths of the entire metro area are crime ridden and urban crime spreads far out into the suburbs.

So are you saying crime comes from lack of police?

Louisiana has the highest incarnation rate in the world, higher than China and Iran.

It's proven that undocumented people commit less crimes than citizens because they can get deported.

Wrong again, all of Louisiana is poor and fairly crime ridden. Crime is rampant is Jefferson Parish and the northshore and other rural areas are over run with meth and pedophiles.

I'm talking about the humans who run away from American drug policies that have destroyed their countries.
Americans steal SS numbers too.

This is a very dark place, with a lack of religion in many facets of their society. Many churches send missionary teams into New Orleans, especially in the Summer.

It might have even been worse before the big hurricane. Many of their illegitimate people and drug addicts were dispersed to Houston, Dallas, Memphis and Atlanta never to return again.

I used to travel there monthly, and never even went to the French Quarter.

Only positive thing I can say is the food is the best in the U.S.

Many people here in the Baton Rouge area blame New Orleans evacuees for crime here could I don't think its ENTIRELY true but people here blame NO transplants for many things. Some are blamed for the increased crime in the city of BR, while others blame the middle class transplants for the overdevelopment of Livingston and Ascension Parishes. As for religion most of New Orleans is Catholic. Where I live in Louisiana there are more Baptists and Pentecostals than Catholics though Catholics are definitely present, and I know dozens and dozens of people who are former Catholics and now Baptist or nondenominational.

The voodoo culture in New Orleans is played up for tourists and the Quarter is only one aspect of New Orleans. Most of the suburbs are socially conservative, I'd say Covington, Louisiana is at least as socially conservative as Covington, Kentucky outside Cincinnati. Even before Katrina, New Orleans didn't have more drug addicts and criminals than Baltimore, Philadelphia, Detroit, St. Louis, Newark, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Pittsburgh or many other cities.

Jefferson Parish has only become crime ridden in recent years. My parents said when we lived there in the 80s and early 90s there was not the kind of crime that you see there now, as Metairie and Kenner have gone downhill as the suburban flight to the Northshore has progressed. Still I don't really fear being shot or mugged anywhere in Jefferson Parish.

I feel completely safe here in Livingston Parish. I also feel totally safe on the Northshore, Ascension Parish or Central.

Certain parts of Lake Charles and Alexandria can be dicey, but still not to the level of New Orleans East or many cities out of state. Alexandria is very rough for a city its size I have to admit that part.
