They had the opportunity to control who returned, and they blew it!

Tarnish the image?

Thats a joke. But its on us because these thugs that are living around here and wont go home keep their crime ways in tact, regardless of where they are.

"...6 shooting deaths in 24 hours..."

New slogan for New Orleans..."New Orleans, picking up where we left off."

Well I know that people have been able to make those kind of choices for themselves in the past, but going forward we're going to have to take that choice away for the common good. < /proletariat_sarcasm>

Billions of our tax dollars down the democRAT hole so that "mayor" Nagan can have his "chocolate" (his words not mine) city back up and running filled with corruption, immorality and death. Things are indeed "back to normal".

The city sits 30 feet BELOW sea level; just don't be surprised if God again decides to wipe the slate clean.

I hate to pass judgement, but the fact is that place has always been a hell hole.

You are correct, of course; I was thinking more of monitoring who returns, and eliminating the thugs right up front. But, unless they have outstanding warrants, you have to let them kill someone first!

If these are only druggies killing each other, maybe it's not such a bad thing.

Ten year ago my son had surgery at the Children's Hospital in New Orleans. The discharging nurse warned me to be very careful leaving the hospital. She stated three people (including an infant) had been murdered in the immediate neighborhood within the past twenty four hours.

Yep, back to normal.

Got ya. I would agree that that is probably a good idea.

IIRC, this is pretty normal for New Orleans.
