Five kids get killed in New Orleans?.. Big friggen deal.. two years ago five kids getting killed was a slow day.. and now America's favorite racist wants the millitary to take over his city???

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has asked for National Guard troops and state police to patrol the city and help quell violence after five teenagers were killed over the weekend, local media said on Monday.

Five teens were shot to death before dawn on Saturday in one of the most deadly attacks in the history of the city, which left residents reeling.

Nagin responded at a special city council meeting by saying he would ask Gov. Kathleen Blanco for the troops, local television stations WWL-TV and WVUE said on their Web sites.

The weekend shooting raised the number of murders to 52 so far this year, police said, and residents and local media say they feel crime is accelerating.


New Orleans was once one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, but the level of violence dropped sharply in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent evacuation.

"If we don't have wind knocking us down, we have shooters knocking us down, and that's unacceptable," WWL quoted City Council President Oliver Thomas as saying.

Every major city that took in New Orleans refugees has had their crime and murder rates skyrocket, especially in Atlanta and Houston. Let those animals kill each other off... no resident of New Orleans should ever get a single penny from U.S. taxpayers. Americans would be better off giving zoo animals their tax money than they would giving those freaks their tax dollars.

Sure... I suppose it's just be a mere coincidence that the cities who opened their doors and wallets to refugees see a major increase in rapes, robbery, and murders...

And I guess if it's not just a mere coincidence, we should just pretend it doesn't exist and not speak of it. That would be the non-pig thing to do, correct?

It's funny that here in Costal Mississippi where we felt more of Katrina than NO did, we didn't have near the problems nor near the whining.. odd

FBI statistics Monday confirmed what big cities like Houston, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Las Vegas have seen on the streets: Violent crime in the U.S. is on the rise, posting its biggest one-year increase since 1991. The cities cited took in tens of thousands of citizens displaced by hurricane Katrina.

Murders climbed from 272 in 2004 to 334 in 2005 in Houston, a 23 percent rise, and from 131 to 144 in Las Vegas, a 10 percent increase.

In Philadelphia, homicides jumped from 330 in 2004 to 377 in 2005, a 14 percent increase, according to the FBI.

Mayor Bill White said most Houston neighborhoods are safer than they were a few years ago, with violent crime concentrated in just a few areas.

For instance, 30 percent of the city's homicides occurred in three police districts on the southwest side.

"Much of it is gang related and it has been exacerbated by the presence of some of the New Orleans gangs where some of the gangs were operating in the city of Houston," White said.

Many displaced from New Orleans have settled in the violent southwest side. The FBI figures were released on the same day authorities announced the arrest in Louisiana of a Katrina evacuee considered one of the Houston area's most-wanted killers. Authorities said he robbed two other evacuees of their FEMA money and shot them, killing one.

I've been to Memphis. I was passing through town, and I stopped at this mansion in the ghetto called Graceland to see if I could use their commode. They refused, so I dropped trou and took a dump on the front lawn of this so-called "Graceland." My pet Bavarian boar Ludwig ran to the backyard and started digging near a tombstone. To make a long story short, we were escorted off the premises by 10 of Memphis's finest...

So, because of the actions of a few, you are willing to judge them all as "freaks?"

They are American citizens just like (I assume) you.

It's just that the city has been for quite some time a cess pool for crime and evil people...
It's a major port for the country, so logic dictates that there are many criminal elements present...
Most of those who were trapped in NO and later evacuated by the government were of that persuasion.. it stands to reason that wherever they went... crime increased.

I'm sure there are many criminals in NO, just as there are everywhere. But to generalize that EVERYONE there is a criminal or a "freak" not deserving of help is, frankly, retarded.

*Footnote: "relentless" I'm going with RD--as we do have a "DQ," that cat from W Tex who owns a Dairy Queen or two. However? would go with simply "Q" along the lines of the Star Trek character, with perhaps a nod to the work on QBID thread...

What I loved about NO when I was down there for a month patrolling last October was all of the cars that were left behind in Police District 5 where we were at. That encompasses a lot of the upper and lower ninth wards. No one could get out because they were too poor. Yeah, rrrrriiiighhht. We were housed in the bywater area and in talking to the locals they loved having us there. They felt safer than they ever had, even before the hurricane. Everyone I talked to had the same story. As the folks who were "too poor" to leave came out of the ninth ward they stole, robbed and basically took everything they could. If you didn't out-gun the guys breaking into your house to steal your stuff, then you should basically just leave and let them have it. I am convinced there were some good folks down there, about twelve.

If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all.

Yep.. about twelve...
I go to NO too often.. I'll be there this Saturday actually, and it is staggering to see the number of heathens there.
