Shootings, muggings, and rape and murder....hmmm exciting!

My post was in response to someone who said that "you get criminal mayors when you have liberals". And if you say it hasn't been found in Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, and Boston, then you could say the same about places such as Salt Lake City and Amarillo. What about Louisiana? That is basically a conservative state and it's very corrupt.

Hey show me a elected official who is not corrupt.

That being said at least those cities are not as bad in the way of crime and high taxes.

Well in that case everyone is a criminal, you can't prove me wrong because you can't prove that it doesn't happen with everyone.

Violence can happen anywhere, it is up to the individual to decide where they feel safe to live and what they want out of where they live.

New Orleans is quite liberal.

Former Congressman William Jefferson was from Louisiana, he was a Democrat, and he hid $90,000 in his refrigerator and was sentenced to prison.

Talk about cold cash and cooling ones heels, which he will do until at least 2023.
