MooseBayou:

I wouldn't live anywhere else. Not for anything you got.


You know what you have? Pride in your city. And I think that's a good thing that is all too rare these days. Good for you. I feel the same way about Detroit (though economic realities forced me to move elsewhere).

I hope you are one of the few (but growing) people in NOLA that gives a damn about their community and actually makes it a better place. I've visited pre-Katrina, and I think it would be a damn shame if we allow it to slip away.

A police station near where we're stationed just got shut down for this same type of shiat about a month or two ago.

Completely shut down.

They fired everyone.

The FBI realized $3000 had gone missing after running a sting operation on these cops...

$3000 pales in comparison, but I suspect that the FBI was after them for something else in the very first place and probably just looking for some kind of justification to get up in there and uncover all the corruption and shiat they did.

Now the area in question has no police save for the few from county they're generous to lend.

Oh boy! I feel sorry for anyone who has to live in that town!

There are other similarities these two stories share, but that would be racist.

MooseBayou: FLMountainMan: admvernclark: I love fark NOLA threads. Usually can add a few names to ignore.

New Orleans is the best city on earth. It is that simple.

"Best" by what measure exactly? Best city for homicide? Venereal disease? Public assistance fraud? Governmental corruption? If you love NOLA, you should just move to Lagos and really enjoy yourself.

FFS, hold your city to a higher standard. You can keep all the culture and still have a functioning government. Just because it's not your demographic being gunned down doesn't mean you can't see that the system needs to be fixed.

How many of your neighbors did you say hello to or stop and chat with this morning before going to work?

Yeah, I thought so.


FAIL. Congrats, you picked the one farker this argument (weak and obtuse as it is) doesn't work on.

I walk to work. Said hi to five neighbors, chatted up two walking their dogs.

On the other hand, I am sure my fellow citizens are relived that Tallahassee will never become a festering shiathole of corruption and crime because FLMountainMan says hi to his neighbors.

I completely missed your point before, my apologies. But, I still think it's weak, because this sense of community that you imply NOLA has doesn't seem to translate into anything positive. Lots of other places have neighborhoods, but without your city's astronomical crime rates and corruption. Do you think the familiarity leads to a lack of accountability? That no one wants to be the bad guy?

Would it be in bad taste to thoughtfully observe that perhaps one Katrina was not enough? Yeah, that would be in bad taste and most probably will hurt, offend and quite possibly piss someone off. Darn...........I just talked myself into it.

Jensaarai: Chelsea Clinton Is Carrot Top's Lost Twin: NicoFinn: PacManDreaming: We have video footage of NOPD officers stealing everything in Wal-Mart that isn't bolted down

We do? I'd like to see that.

You missed seeing that go down? I thought it was common knowledge how bad the NOPD was during Katrina... quitting on the spot, stealing whatever they could, etc...

At least someone posted the link.

And the "etc" that didn't get caught on video is what's way scarier.



I heard about one household that had a bunch of ridiculously expensive artwork and all they wanted protected so they hired a security firm. At some point, the guards got into a firefight with a van load of would-be thieves... Turns out they were NOPD wanting to rob the house. Any truth to this one?

It's a pretty shiatty attitude to have, yeah. But I suppose it's better than coming right out and posting "I wish all the black people in New Orleans were dead.".

I wouldn't be surprised. There's a reason why all the cops you saw immediately after Katrina weren't wearing NOPD uniforms. It wasn't because they were busy saving the community.

MooseBayou: admvernclark: New Orleans has it's fair share of issues. Mainly, the leadership. Horrible mayor, and police chief.

The sense of entitlement some of the minorities have is shockingly bad.

Nothing new there. What makes it worse is the lack of a social conscience.

We'll have a new mayor in a few months. We don't have a Police Chief, we have a Superintendent. And he is a poor joke. The District Attorney is OK, now that we got rid of the militant who summarily dismissed all the white employees, was sued for discrimination, and left the City holding his bag of shiat.

The schools are terrible. Infrastructure is falling apart. The repercussions of racism is getting worse, not better.

Almost without exception, I just described every major metropolitan area in the country.

I wouldn't live anywhere else. Not for anything you got.


Same here. Anyone that lives in New Orleans and claims that it's a perfect city is lying out their ass. It's an AWESOME city, granted, but it's got more problems than it has wrought iron fences.

I think I need a racial intervention.

Do they even have those?

I don't want to be a racist. But I did notice that the cops in the N.O thing were >_> and the cops in the retarded town near here were >_>

And that's a horrible racist kind of thing to observe.

I'm sorry.

A report issued Monday by the Louisiana legislative auditor's office says New Orleans Police Superintendent Warren Riley didn't know that a state law required his department to notify the auditor and the city's district attorney about any missing public funds.

Riley said he is asking the state attorney general's office whether that state audit law applies to money confiscated by police
or if he can use it to buy a new pimped out Hummer to show off to his homeys.


FTFY

How long has this person (man might be a stretch) been a Superintendent of the NOPD? Isn't it YOUR JOB to know proper procedures and rules?

Saying hi to your neighbors and stopping to chat is the height of social integrity. You are lucky to have good folks to see every day. Tallahassee is a nice town, though.

Don't try this in Houston, or Los Angeles, or ...

Mongo cut wood: How long has this person (man might be a stretch) been a Superintendent of the NOPD? Isn't it YOUR JOB to know proper procedures and rules?

Riley is incompetent to the point of being criminally incompetent. He argues that the reason our crime rates are so high is because they are using flawed census data to calculate the per capita. The local paper then pointed out that even using *his* census numbers, we are still the highest in the nation. He offers excuses rather than solutions. He should be laying out his plan to show what he is doing to reduce crime rather than arguing about numbers. He is a Nagin crony who inspires no one, especially not the NOPD. Rather than actually patrolling their beat, you can see cops standing around talking to each other or on their cell phones. Riley has done nothing to address the crime issues in this city. And his failing can be blamed 100% on Hizzoner the mayor. Nagin should have kicked him out of his position long ago, but won't because they are friends.
This city needs new leadership, across the board. Thank god the elections are coming up and Nagin has reached his term limits.
Good riddance to bad trash.

No, familiarity here is very parochial.

I think there are plenty of people who would be the bad guy, but they won't get elected.

I can't explain the crime here, without resorting to what would be construed as racism. It is an internaitonal port city, so that explains some of it. There was also a power vacuum after Katrina in the crime world, and there has been an apparent struggle for the upper hand since. Lots and lots of young urban men, and women, are giving their lives for the sake of drugs and prostitution.

As far as the police corruption, it goes to long entrenched processes that were in place long before the FBI rolled in, and as far as I can tell, they haven't been real successful in identifying the true players.

Have lived in:

Portland, OR
Omaha, NE
Houston, TX
Midland, TX
Waterloo, IA
Destin, FL
Pensacola, FL
Tampa, FL

There's culture, and then there's culture. Of the other cities I just listed, the only one I liked was Destin, (which has no culture at all), I guess primarily because of the strong New Orleans influence there.

NOLA is a shiat hole. Just spent 3 days there with friends, on vacation. I questioned their choice and the only reason I went was because of the D-Day museum. 3 murders the first day we were there. NOPD under investigation for bodies found in burnt out car the 2nd day. Stayed in a National chain hotel that is normally 7 out of 10, this one was a 4 if that.

So, the murders during your vacation... they happened where you were? Were you one of the drug dealers or drug buyers that got killed? Were you involved in any way or did you just see on the news that someone got shot in Central City?

Yeah, no. The majority of murder "victims" in this city aren't innocent or random. And they stay in pretty specific areas. Sure, people get pickpocketed and ripped off in the quarter, but you find that wherever you have a large concentration of drunk tourists. At least you made it to the Warehouse District for the museum... shoulda kept driving uptown, that's where it's all really at.

1. Doubtful you have any real friends, since you question their choice of vacation spots, but like the phony jackass that you are, decide that you'll go along to "see a museum" - unadultereated horsepoop is all that is

He needs to start in New Iberia, then graduate eastward through Morgan City and Houma. Obviously he can't handle New Orleans without some preparation.
