It seems there is no end to the violence that has plagued the city. In the first 12 days of the new year 12 people have been murdered, in all two dozen people have been injured in shootings since the first of the year. This includes a twelve year old girl who was injured by a stray bullet. The murder rate in New Orleans is 10 times the national average!
Last night the NOPD was closed due to a bomb scare, there was another shoot out and the car they towed into the NOPD, had LIVE grenades in it!
I don’t know what is going on, I don’t live in New Orleans, but I do live right outside of New Orleans and I gotta say I’m sick of turning the TV every morning and hearing about ANOTHER murder!! The violence is spilling over into my parish, an 11 year old who was sitting in a house in Jefferson parish and was killed by a bullet that struck him in the head and wasn’t intended for him. Tonight a police car went into he canal, after a suspect stole it and drove it into there, the police shot him, here in Jefferson Parish!
I thought with the murder of 2 year old Kiera Holmes things would slow down in NOLA, but it hasn’t things have gotten worse, and it seems 2012 is going to be a bloody year in the city of New Orleans and it’s neighbors seem to be on the same path.
This has to stop!I don’t know what the answer is but violence is not the answer!
