Since this is NorthWest Carrollton's blog....
We're going to focus on the area surrounded by Earhart-Carrollton-Claiborne-Leonidas.
And we're going to notice that there are, thankfully, no murders inside these boundaries this year.
We'd like to believe that knowing your neighbors and the Neighborhood Watch helps.
NorthWest Carrollton is just below and to the right of the large Earhart Blvd text in the map below.
Then you can read the entire article from Nola.com. The statistics are scary and will drive the approach that NOPD takes. I just hope that there is a place in the NOPD process for remembering to treat everyone with dignity and that statistically everyone they interact with is not a criminal.
One day we hope that the individuals using guns to address issues will acknowledge and take to heart these quotes:
Chinese Proverb: "If you seek revenge, dig two graves."
Marcus Aurelius Antonius (121 - 180): "The best revenge is not to become like the one who wronged you."
Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha): "The grudge you hold on to is like a hot coal that you intend to throw at someone, only you're the one who gets burned."
