    Why don’t they march up and down our streets after 11pm and protect us from the criminals? Stupid publicity stunt….

    They speak of “crime” as though it is some incorporeal external force inflicting deprivation of life, limb, and property; no different than the rain falling on the ground and causing erosion. Until you actually admit to the real problem, nothing will ever change nor actually be done to solve the problem.

    The majority of the people in the community are causing the crime. Yet no one says this

    Fight crime, shoot back. Unfortunately, the nopd will probably confiscate your weapon like they did to people after katrina

    The 5th District (admittedly not Uptown but still relevant) is also doing a crime walk tonight in response to the brutal attacks in St Roch:

    5th District July 2014 Anti-Crime WalkJuly 30,2014 in the St. Roch NeighborhoodThe 5th District July 30,2014 Anti-Crime Walk will be held in the St. Roch Neighborhood due to the rainout of the June 2014 walk in the same neighborhood.

    We will meet at the intersection ofMandeville and North Derbignybetween 5:30-5:55 PM and begin the walk at 6:00 PM.

      Craig, I can’t see where this accomplishes anything. It starts off with the public becoming justifiably outraged at the amount of crime in their neighborhood. Rather than actually DO anything useful to make a dent in the problem – like actually patrolling the streets – the NOPD then reacts by coopting and deflecting the public outrage. You and I and 30 other residents and 10 police officers will walk a mile together, smile at the people, and hand out leaflets. It accomplishes nothing, other than giving people the dangerous illusion that something is being done.

    Publius, I’m surprised they aren’t yelling “Geaux Saints!”, or throwing beads.
