NOLA needs cops…

with one comment

All the talk in the world won’t stop criminals from being criminals if you don’t’ have enough police to enforce the laws.   New Orleans not only lacks sufficient numbers  of law enforcement personnel,  it also still suffers from the cronyism and corruption which have plagued it since forever.

Mayor Mitch Landrieu has been in office for five years, yet there have been few improvements.   His father,  Moon Landrieu,  was also mayor of the city 1970 – 1978,  and his sister Mary is a former U.S. Senator.   The family has very deep political roots and connections and is not shy about using them.   The same is true of every politician in Louisiana as far as i can tell,  with the possible exception of Gov. Bobby Jindal,  who seems to believe in producing results for the people of his state.

Yes,  courtesy of the Obama Administration and the Black Lives Matter and related movements,  recruiting police is difficult,  but until the criminal elements in New Orleans actually fear being caught,  charged,  convicted and imprisoned,  the residents will continue to suffer.
