New Orleans will soon be dubbed the murder capital of the US according to AH Datalytics. They use FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program, as of right now the per capita is 72 per 100,000 residents. It all translates to poor management from the city not caring a damn thing about it. The mayor (LaToya Cantrell) that they have in office has to be one of the worst mayors that they've elected. This is a perfect example of what not to do when running a city like side stepping the problems and completely ignore what's going on. Cutting down on the police budget is definitely not the right answer as we see that it only made the situation much worse than what is was before. It also doesn't help that the justice system doesn't punish the criminals hard enough especially in a democratic ran city, they usually let them off on a small bond unless they have murdered someone. Now New Orleans PD is looking for help from the state police to combat the rising crime. It's a shame that the city has gotten that far out of shape, tourists are second guessing visiting the city and that will have an impact on their economy. No one wants to get murdered or carjacked for that matter, especially when they are just visiting. I really hope that they can make some changes to the city and put the crime on a downward spiral, it's a magical city and there is no place like it.

Can you explain what police do and what mayors do that affect crime? And how more police will stop crime from happening?

It has been proven that less cops leads to a rise in crime, by defending the police just makes the situation worse. They are told to be less aggressive and ignore all the petty crimes and concentrate on the serious crimes like murder and carjacking. The moral is not there anymore like it used to be, there is no pride being a cop. The Democrats don't help the situation, they believe by not punishing then the problem will go away. Being a predominantly black city, crime tends to be more violent verses a predominantly white city like Austin. Yes Austin is a democratic city but there is a lot less poverty in Austin than in New Orleans, that's one of the main reasons for the high crime. The higher the poverty rate the more likely people will take that chance on stealing or killing someone. When a city has a black prosecutor, they tend to let their own people off the hook like releasing them on a small bond, a very light jail sentence, or put them on probation. That mayor that they have always sidesteps the problem when being interviewed, like the idiots in Washington DC. They need more technology on their side like that proposal for facial recognition cameras. What is boils down to if you spend more money on the police budget crime will go down and vice versa.

Watching the news, off duty cop gets mugged, gun stolen, then lady gets raped on Bourbon Street. Hmmm get a team of proactive police undercover police walking around as drunk tourist yep set a trap. Make sure the criminals make it to jail in horrible condition, make sure medical care is vary slow kinda like 911 call response. Get a reputation for treating criminals badly. Don't just sit back and let the criminals take over the quarter and the city. Reward police that fight back against all these thugs. Fight back take the city back. You've tried being soft on criminals it's not

Cops will literally never fix crime issues. Crimes aren't committed because lack of cops. There's almost no police in the suburbs yet the crime is relatively low compared to a city full of poor people with no options.

Seems the NOPD are useless when it comes to defending the public.

Who would have thought that defunding the police would lead to more crime? This one is a puzzler that no one could have seen coming....

There are plenty of countries in the world with way more poor people and way less options than New Orleans with little to no crime. Don't use poor excuses for a lack a failing police and judicial system that is run horrible wrong in the city of New Orleans
