Murders in New Orleans (Still Upper Case) for 2017

New Orleans is still in upper case as it has not shamed itself yet but I came across a headline saying that as of Monday, May 1, the statue of Jefferson Davis still stands.  When that is taken down, the city becomes (n)ew (o)rleans and my boycott begins.  And, I am going to hate to boycott the place.  I like a whole lot about it (especially Bourbon Street and the fantastic music).

There was a confrontation of sorts at the Jefferson Davis statue and a large police presence to keep the peace.  Evidently, this statue is the next target of the extremists.

Anyway, I came across a site called the New Orleans Murder Map which says that so far in 2017, there have been 64 murders in the city.  In 2016, there were 175.  Unfortunately, the race of the victims was not given, but judging by the names, I would say a lot of them were Blacks.

Of interest, not one single police report blames a Confederate statue for the murders.

Yet, Those Statues Are the Real Big Deal in New Orleans.  Makes You Wonder What the Mayor and the Black Community Considers To Be of Importance.  --Old Secesh
