2011 New Orleans Murders

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.
Yes there are murders near NorthWest Carrollton. One on Carrollton and Walmsley was in a car. Another was someone crossing the center of Earhart.  The memorial in the Earhart neutral ground is still maintained.
Then you can read the entire article from  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."
