Did anyone see the History Channel episode of Gangland featuring the Houston/Katrina/NO gangs? It was very interesting and made Houston look great. NO came out looking REALLY corrupt and ignorant on how to solve it's gang problems. Way to go HPD!

I look forward to watching, I remember how the petty thefts jumped after we (Houston) opened our arms for the poor Katrina folks. There was an episode of "The Boondocks" that had the situation spot on.

I remember that episode, and they were dead on! I laughed so hard throughout, but there was a lot of truth in it.

Yea I saw that BS, I was thing to myself "Houston's crime was high before Katrina" lmao. I know because I've done a lot of research before me moved to Houston.

FYI: I veto the first move because of that, it took my wife's company to up the pay in order for her to pull a filibuster on the move.

Nobody ever said we didn't have crime before - but the crime we have had since is different and worse.

Would love to see that - do you have any idea when it will air again? Yes, NO has definitely had its issues and I feel bad for the decent citizens of NO who have had to live with that.

Houston and every other city that welcomed large numbers of Katrina victims experienced an increase in crime. Any large city has crime, and lots of it, but the type perpetuated by the new residents increased upon their(Katrina victims) arrival.

I saw that too, they basically said the gang bangers from Louisiana basically went back to their old stomping grounds because HPD don’t play like that..
