The ones who has to go is then criminals including the 9th ward, the police, the city inspectors (health and fire), and virtually the entire city government that is elected and appointed positions.

Default Marshal Law & Gun permits

I agree with the previous post to marshal law the high crime areas, as it's the only way to control the wild animals. In addition, allowing citizens to carry ( visable) guns will also deter thugs and drug dealers from their behavior. If not, then it's simple self defense. True change can come from taking away rights from thugs and drug dealers. They shouldn't have rights to begin with once they engage and choose to be involved in their behaviors.

I hope so, but to be honest, I don't expect it to get safer. I've lived in NOLA most of my life and there are things about this city that are rooted deep. So deeply that it will take major cooperative effort to fix. It sounds nice and all but when reality sets in you realize that things have been messed up in this city for a while and probably will not change.

On the other hand, I do believe the population will eventually return to what is was before. It's probably going to be a new set of people that populate the area. And that will change things a bit. But overall New Orleans will be New Orleans. A dirty, corrupt, fun, and violent city.

I still love it though

That does seem to be true. New Orleans, Memphis, Detroit, Gary, Atlanta, etc, etc......

Crime in New Orleans is less than in Shreveport La the next largest metro area in the state. We have home invasions here, have you heard of them???
Also crime is pretty much contained to certain areas.
Although the latest thing there is for the thugs to pull up next to you in a vehicle and point a gun at you and rob you while you are walking or biking or driving so beware of this if you are going to visit.
New Orleans is also a national treasure and the MOST unique city in aMERICA

I hate throwing statistics at people...but Shreveport Metro is the third largest in the state, behind NOLA and BTR.

Want to end the thugs pulling up next to you and holding you at gun point? Pass a gun law to carry ( visable carry) and the incidence of this occurring will go down dramatically. Thugs respond to aggressive threat of someone protecting themselves. Again, we really need to stop the hand holding of sociopaths and deal with them effectively. First pass laws that state, if you're a thug and or a drug dealer, you have no rights in society and have forfeited them by choosing to be a dirt bag. You will see dramatic changes in a positive direction by doing the two above. Unfortunately we live in a world that will continue to be backed into a corner and afraid to defend itself.
