Are you saying that we should just bulldoze and segregate the city like most other southern cities so that the crime/muggings/pursnatching will still exist, but will be easier to ignore?
gets it. but I would change southern to US/American.

WestbankNOLA,

While I honestly do respect your opinion, as it is well-informed from a Westbank perspective, I have a few rebuttals.

As for the NOPD, two of my best friends witnessed a cop beat a guy to death on Orleans at Dauphine on Lundi Gras day, just down the block from my house.

As for the housing, I encourage you to take a look at the building next to the Clothes Spin on St. Philip and all the houses on the block between Dumaine and St. Philip on Burgundy as well as all the housing in Treme and the 4th Ward. Also consider that most of these old buildings don't even have insulation or safe electrical wiring.

The Quarter?? Try the Marigny/Bywater, yUPTOWN, Broadmoor, Sugar Hill, and the Upper 9th Ward.

And, no one deserves to be homeless, but the Quarter IS seggregated. The only black people I know that've lived there are coke dealers. Should people who pay 1.5 to 4 million dollars for a house really have to deal with shootings and muggings on their way to the grocery store?

People who stupidly (IMO) paid 1.5-4mil to live in the Quarter maybe should drop some change on a self-defense class and a taser, no matter where they live.

WHOA!
A westbank perspective. How about a lifetime perspective from Uptown ad Mid-City? Hell, I live on the Eastbank now and if you want to use a s/n to invalidate an opinion then that speaks for itself.

With that out of the way. There are rotten apples within the ranks of NOPD, just as with any other dept. There are also many who work hard to at least try to make a difference.

As for housing, I encourage you to explore every block of the city from Tchoupitoulas out to Robert E. Lee, Hollygrove to the East and lake to river.

I'm sorry, but I here "Yes Indeed" daily as well as say it myself. "Yeah Ya Right" is harder to come by Uptown, but head to Mid-City, St. Bernard, across the River, East Jeff. It's not as common as it used to be, but it's there.

The people who can afford to live in 1.4+ million dollar mansions are the only ones here who could actually make a difference if they wanted too. If you didn't know, money and last names make things happen around here. Those people are also the only ones in this city who can afford to keep a coke dealer in business.
