I still love NOLA and it pains me to see what is still happening back there. So there you have it, I have moved on. If you don't want help,advice or opinions from others, good luck going it on your own. I hope the city and your way of life that you so love survives. Adios!
Moderator cut: edit I've been to Boulder, CO. I'm a skier. It's nice, but, it is no New Orleans. Absolutely no culture whatsoever.

Micktooth, you offered neither help, nor advice. You offered your opinion, and when people stated a counter-opinion, you Moderator cut: edit stormed off of the thread. Stop trying to act so nobleModerator cut: edit
A random murder happened in a parking lot...Moderator cut: edit This is America. Find one major city where there are not a few random murders. I wish that those were the ONLY murders in New Orleans. Alot fewer people would be murdered if all of the people murdered for drugs were taken out of the picture.

Default zero tolerance

Cities that adopt and adhere to the policy of zero tolerance for thugs and their behavior have seen dramatic turnaround in cities, population and business districts. You don't ask to take back the streets, you move in and just do it. If it means getting the military involved, so be it. Order will be restored and thugs will be gone. The tolerance and sticking one's head in the sand feeds the destruction of cities. Time to get your head out of the sand.

New York City is a great example of that. I lived there from 1998-2000 and a GREAT city to live in...they made laws that you basically couldn't 'bother' people by panhandling or otherwise...certain kinds of businesses and people that were commonplace in Manhattan, moved elsewhere...and suddenly Manhattan was this great place to live and work again.

That's exactly what has kept the high crime rate of New Orleans from jumping the parish line into Metairie and Kenner. For twenty-seven years Jefferson parish had a no-nonsense sheriff who did not tolerate crime. Now that he has died I am a little uneasy about the future of Jefferson Parish crime-wise.

Nice to see these post, as some people believe these comments are overly aggressive, yet knowingly allow thugs and drug dealers to carry guns and intimidate them and there families. This country really needs to develop an attitude of zero tolerance and stop hand holding these criminals. Building basketball courts and getting social workers involved works for non sociopathic individuals. Animals only respond to more aggressive individuals than themselves. Last year on New Years eve a lawyer was jogging in his city and 6 punks/thugs jumped him for no reason and beat him unconcious. It's too bad we do not have the ability to legally carry guns, as the outcome of this incident would have been very different.
