I think part of New Orlean's problem is...it's located in a temperate zone, and cities located in temperate zones attract transients, and transients often end up committing crimes, and bringing drugs. Add heat and humidity and stir it all up.

Let's see, twenty-two posts and nearly all have ignored the Elephant in the Room. Ask yourself, what do most urban areas in the USA with inordinately high crime rates have in common?

But it isn't PC to talk about that, so "Shhhhhhh".

Spot on.
That's why we've developed elaborate 'codespeak' .. that everyone pretends doesn't exist.
Like the elephant in the room.

Then explain Detroit (high murder rate), Anchorage (high rate of assault and rape, and the high number of transients). Both are cold cities, Anchorage especially.

Pretty sure the term we're all looking for is called 'poverty'.


New Orleans has an extremely high rate of indigence.

Did you read the whole thread, including my prior post re 'poverty as the (main) cause of crime??
Statistically poverty correlates with crime in the US but correlates more strongly with ethnicity.
E.G. Poor Asians do not commit violent crimes at a rate in proportion to other impoverished populations.

Here is a better question. What influences an individual to be violent?

People don't commit crimes because they are poor. If they did, then all poor people would be commiting crimes. Poor people, like every other economic group, who commit a crime do so because they CHOOSE to commit a crime.

Being poor is an excuse for commiting a crime.
