It's definitely more dangerous than New York City. New York, New York has come a long way from the bloody 70's and 80's. I think New Orleans has a huge amount of crime, but most of the victims are criminals themselves. As far as random acts of violence I don't have any reason to believe that New Orleans is any different from other cities in the U.S.

The problem with places like New Orleans and Detroit is that they were never able to sufficiently clean up the drug industry due to corruption, lack of police presence, and socio-economic factors.

There's crime here but it's all mostly related to drugs.

Read NOLA.com and you'll see it's guys who know one another who kill each other over the most insane reasons.

The above pretty much explains it all.

As far as Katrina is concerned. If you got most of your info from a television.... you don't know the half!

Have you ever heard of punctuation?

You really need to get your facts straight. A huge majority of New Orleans area residents evacuated prior to Katrina. Those who did not were mostly those who could not.

Were you in the city after Katrina? My guess is no. You say that most people were out on the streets stealing television sets, etc. Wrong. Of course you would think that. Why would CNN or FOXnews want to put footage of hundreds of people taking bread of the shelves when they could put up footage of this one guy carrying a TV out of the electronics store next door.

People need to stop believing everything they hear from the media. Do you not understand that the media makes money by tricking you into buying papers or tuning in. They are always bending the truth (or flatout lying) if it means getting your attention.

You're in real danger if you have a personal problem with crack cocaine. I don't do crack, so I walk around feeling relatively fine and have for over 20 years. Never have been a victim of crime and can't really say that I know anyone that has other than a car break-in here and there. But, again, my friends don't do crack either, so we live in a different social circle than the criminals.
