Why wouldn't the federal government provide funds for this?

Many of the problem areas fall in southwest Houston, particularly in apartment complexes housing numerous Katrina evacuees, White and Hurtt said.

If you are going to make accusations like this, at least have the courage to use your real name instead of your user name.

This is a cop out, so to speak.

My memory may be a little off as well as statistics but Houston employs like 3.2 cops per 10,000 residents where or cities employ 3.8 cops per 10,000.

So police force underemployed resulting in more overtime. Add to that the residents of Katrina were low income people and are now living in low rent apts and number of police calls is bound to rise. They are trying to get apartment owners to pay a special tax based on number of calls to the complex and hire more security patrols.
 
2005-12-27 11:37:42 AM  
The increased population would surely strain the HPD but good. This might be a fair claim.

If you want to hear about some useless, whiny shiatheads, my folks live in a froufrou golf development in Port St Lucie FlA. Just last MONTH they was a brouhaha about who would pay for the brush removal. The brush pile in my folks front yard was maybe 10 cubic feet. They wouldn't move it. Nobody in the area would. I tried to rent a trailer and move it myself for 5 bucks a head, but he wouldn't let me. They biatched about it for about 3 weeks.

huh?

houston and nola both have massive amounts of crime. how do the know these crimes in houston didn't already exist? or are they just looking for a scapegoat? i lived in nola and because of katrina i now live in houston and doing very well...much better than i was in nola...and i'm staying away from the southwest area as much as possible.

How can they tell that the NOLA folks added to Houston's already "stellar" criminal ranks?

Because the guy who robbewd us had Lousianna plates on his car. My girl's store was robbed by an "evacuee", his getaway car being a BMW SUV no less. We moved out of apartment complex due to the breakins and vandalism that occured, coincidently enough, the week they started accepting vouchers. Our breakins went from 0 in the last 2 years to 6 in the last three months. All the free weights from the gym have been stolen and the trash overflows the dumpters. The week before we moved out, a successful and attractive african american youth approached me asking if I had a XanaX or some "kill". I am not alone in my plight, I know many others who have experienced similiar problems.

And dont get me started on these peoples attitudes. At least twice a day I have people hem and haw "What!? 3.99?! I'm from New Orleans dont I get a discount?!"

Our crime rate has jumped 23% since last year, most the jump coming in the last several months of the year, with the biggest hotspots of violent crime coming from apartment complexes with lots evacuees. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure it out. Oh and btw Houston violent crime had been dropping every year for a number of years until recently.

I fully expect FEMA to point to the "sanctuary city" policy affording illegal and unconstitutional protections to non-citizen residents and tell White and Hurtt to piss off.

It won't be the first time Houston has come up with a lousy plan, went to the Feds, and were sent home with an empty bag. After all, that's why we couldn't afford to elevate the Danger Train out of harm's way and both Los Angeles and Dallas got our transit funds instead.
 
2005-12-27 12:01:07 PM  
My brother lives in Houston and he was talking about how crime has picked up around his place as well. Someone was robbed in the parking lot out front and someone was robbed in the gym.
His apartment complex was on the news and fark though because of that one guy wacking off multiple times in some girls panties after breaking into her place.

Yes, I've noticed that. Generally, there are three major types of people in the world. Call em what you will, their behavior types read the same.

1. Neanderthals. These are the people for whom "Blue Collar Comedy" specials aren't funny, because describing an ordinary day isn't funny. These are the "git er done" people that give police and government inspectors migraines. The good news--these are the people who do the hard work. Gimme a Budweiser, and tell that damn dog to stop crapping in the back of the pickup--yes, the pickup that's up on blocks and has been there since before Uncle Billy-Bob went to the pen.
2. More-Money-Than-Brains. The exact inverse. Everything has to look urbane, cosmopolitan, bec-fin perfect. Actually getting stuff done, not in the picture. How they get paid more than the Neanderthals, I'll never know. OH NOES! There's a dollop of bird feces on my Lexus! Guess I'll just have to trade it in for that Rolls.
3. Normal people. They know what needs to get done, and the rules governing how to do it, and can balance the two.

I too live in Houston. God honest, the "NOLA evacuees" are causing a lot of trouble here. I've had a Concealed Handgun Licence for a while but I stopped carrying one. After a few frieds of mine where robbed on separate occations, and I was robbed at gun point by someone with LA licence plates (A white Lexus) I started carrying my handgun. I haven't had to use it yet, thank goodness.

There are more stories that I hear from friends that have shops and other business about NOLA refugees robbing and causing problems.

We need the military here in Houston as soon as they get done with NOLA.

Q314,

Why wouldn't the federal government provide funds for this?


FEMA coordinates the work of federal, state, and local agencies in responding to floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters. FEMA provides financial assistance to individuals and governments to rebuild homes, businesses, and public facilities; trains firefighters and emergency medical professionals; and funds emergency planning throughout the United States and its territories.

Well, in theory at least...

FEMA is NOT responsible for tracking and arresting piece of shiit criminals from New Orleans.
 
2005-12-27 12:13:48 PM  
Maybe it is time to bring in facts?
What race were the victums?
What race were the criminals?
You never see these FACTS because it would be racist to prove one race does most of the crime and does it on their own people.
Facts do not lie... People do.

This is why FEMA needed to set up tent city on government property somewhere for ALL the evacuees. Then FEMA can bring their OWN police, fire, medical teams and social workers, as to not overwhelm the locals.
 
2005-12-27 12:28:42 PM  
I love it when people who haven't met Katrina evacuees try to defend them. We evacuated when Rita hit, and shared a hotel with Katrina evacuees. They proudly proclaimed that they were going to turn the hotel into the "new ghetto" and mysteriously some of our stuff was stolen from our truck that night. I'm not saying all of the New Orleans folk are bad, but when I hear about crime rates going up because they moved into town, I readily believe it.

When I was a kid in DeKalb, IL, the local university started a program called 2nd Chance for kids in Chicago's inner-city schools. They figured the top kids would have no problem getting into colleges, so they gave full scholarships and boarding to the very worst performers, as they had the worst prospects in life. Only, they all ended up dropping out and staying in DeKalb. And DeKalb, which is in the middle of cornfields, suddenly had drugs and gangs.

"That's racist, that's racist...wahwahwah"
"That's 'cause the man be racist and always tryin' ta hold a brotha down...wahwahwah."

It's got nothing to do with the fact that MOST blacks are raised to belive that somebody owes them something and that they don't have to work for it.

it would be racist to prove one race does most of the crime and does it on their own people.

No, that would be factual. It would be racist to suggest without proof that the reason one race does most of the crime is BECAUSE of their race.

(Or because "MOST blacks are raised to belive that somebody owes them something and that they don't have to work for it.")

3) eventually got SOME help (weeks later) from fema and red cross
4) found a place to live .. asked nicely if they were doing anything to help.. they weren't
5) got utilities, asked nicely if they'd waive the $300-worth of deposits.. they wouldn't
6) got a *job* .. making money ..

Look,

The reason Asians are so good at math is because they crap and puke all over themselves and each other. NSFW

Indians aren't the best engineers - those are the germans. And you can tell because Germans are busy practicing sexual cannibalism.

It just goes to show that the more technically gifted a culture, the more depraved certain elements will be. Of course there are depraved elements of every culture, bla bla PC BS... but empircal internet analysis will prove that the agitators of WWII, boast the most bizarre and disgusting internet behavior, bar none - perhaps they're the only ones putting it on tape???

What does this have to do with NO evacuees, black people, and crime? Nothing I guess, but by personal experience, my house was robbed/vandalized by black kids - long before Katrina, a guy I work with was robbed twice by black men - once while making out with his girlfriend in a nightclub parking lot (like an idiot), the other time while washing his car in a parking lot. My grandparents house was robbed by the son of his housekeeper (a black woman).

So I'm not making any judgements here. Just reporting experiences. You decide, based on your experiences what the truth likely is. Listen to the music of the cultures, listen to the attitudes. There is no truth because everyone has an agenda right?

I always leave with this question too... Why must we accept the fact that some cultures/races/ethnicities are superior athletically by genetics, yet intellectually, we must all be the same and genetics has nothing to do with it? Seems counter productive to insist that "we're all the same" (read - 'equal') when history, science, and casual observations seem to tell a completely different story.

It will be the ability to approach that question honestly and openly that will be the end of racism and true "equality". All this "we are the world" crap is a band-aid. We have the technology - let's fix everyone! YaY!

2005-12-27 01:50:12 PM  
Funny, there is much more evidence against racial equality than belief in a higher power. Yet we hold up racial equality as some silly absolute truth and love to bash Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc. Studies on twins show intelligence is at least 80% inherited, why wouldn't some ethnic groups be more inclined to be smarter?
 
2005-12-27 01:52:41 PM  
Well it only makes sense that if there are more people in the city, than there will be more crime. Nola gangs and Houston gangs are going to bump heads. If FEMA can provide all these evacuees with free rent and a reason to stay, I think they should help the police force also.

The evacuees are getting the bad rep, but they are getting the hook-up too.

I live in the Southwest and have met some evacuees. When I see them they are getting some bang or some new rims on their cars. There is racism, but I think the bigger fight is Houston Vs. New Orleans.

BTW, Mardi Gras is going to kick-ass in Galveston, this year.

Meyerland is near the loop, and some of those houses are getting very expensive. You'll soon grow tired of your Mexican drinking buddies; trust me been there done that.

Asshat tom delay can also take some of the blame for that. Metro wanted to elevate the train, but delay did his worst to kill off any chance of federal transit funding.

My parents lived in Denver Harbor in the 50's and 60's. They tell me it was like a middle class River Oaks in those days. Then the Mexicans and blacks moved in. Now I think I would rather spend a week in Hell than a night in Denver Harbor.

I have lived (100% crime free) in The Woodlands since 1976.

3 weeks after the refuse (not refugees) washed up on the banks of my community, my car and my wifes SUV were broken into and I involuntarily donated $3000+ worth of electronics to them. Montgomery County Sheriffs responded to both and 2 different officers stated the same thing. B&E and vandalism are up 60%. 90% of those arrested have arrest records in NOLA. 100% of the arrested said "we ain't leaving".

Don't bother to reply since I fully understand:

I am a racist, but I wasn't always one.
I am cynical, but I wasn't always that way.
I know it is all my fault because I am white and I tempted those "poor less fortunate" folks with my worldly possessions.

Yoda's Pen Is: My parents lived in Denver Harbor in the 50's and 60's. They tell me it was like a middle class River Oaks in those days. Then the Mexicans and blacks moved in. Now I think I would rather spend a week in Hell than a night in Denver Harbor.

Middle class mexicans and blacks did that?

I was kinda hoping for a "Escape From New Orleans" thing to happen. Screen out all the felons and habitual offenders and let them shoot it out in the fire ant and poop infested waters.

I'd just like to point out to whomever said that you knew the thief was a refugee by the license plate...how the hell would someone who had to be rescued and relocated still have a car? And if he did get another, why wouldn't it have TX plates?

"I always leave with this question too... Why must we accept the fact that some cultures/races/ethnicities are superior athletically by genetics, yet intellectually, we must all be the same and genetics has nothing to do with it? Seems counter productive to insist that "we're all the same" (read - 'equal') when history, science, and casual observations seem to tell a completely different story."

When did "we" start doing that? You have accepted that some races are athletically superior which is highly stupid. You created a "truth," and a faulty one at that, then raised the question of suspension of an equal truth to imply that some races are less intelligent than others....when in fact, the first truth (athletic superiority) is not something widely accepted or true at all. It is in fact a stereotype as any sociologist, biologist, and psychologist will tell you. They'll also tell you that CULTURE/NURTURE makes up at least half of personality.

situations like these are why we have concealed handguns in texas. NO might not have been able to take out the trash, but Houston will.

btw, when NO was evacuated my neighbors had about 8 people stay with them. Funny thing is the 8 people had four brand new Hondas with dealer plates from the same dealer with the same date.

One day the police came for some reason and suddenly all four cars and eight people were gone.

Draw your own conclusions.

So your point is the NBA, NFL, and National Olympic organizations are all racist? Good. Go out there and plead your case. Lets keep things positive, I did not say one race was "stupid"... I implied that some ethnicities may be genetically predisposed to be "smart" or "smarter". If you wanna label certain groups "stupid" be my guest.

Keep running from the truth with your fingers tightly pressed into your ears... It will catch you one day, hold you down, and beat the ever-loving piss out of you. Don't come to me for help when that happens.
