It Was Not A Peaceful Christmas Week In New Orleans

This time of the year, we pray for peace and wish for goodwill to all men. But someone should tell the citizens of New Orleans that. Christmas week was not a very peaceful one for the Crescent City.

Three people lost their lives in the past week. In addition, there were numerous incidents of mayhem and foolishness over the week.

Here’s a summary, courtesy of Nola.com:

Christmas was anything but peaceful in New Orleans. The city has a problem with crime that its leadership doesn’t take seriously.

In 2017, Mitch Landrieu and the rest of the New Orleans city leadership should actually try to address this problem. If New Orleans continues to be a war zone, tourism will dry up and people will move out of the city. That’s less money for the city and the state as a whole.
