Murder and Fame

A lot of murders happen in America. It's just like the movies.

Here in New Orleans, when you murder someone, you get away with it.
In 2006, there were 161 homicides. As of July, there have been three murder convictions.
So if you kill someone here, there is only a 1.86% chance you'll be sent to prison.

If you didn't follow the link in the last post, there were four shootings within an hour of each other just last night.

Can YOU catch the killers?

Nah. There are way more important murders to solve out there. Famous ones.

Here in New Orleans, some people think District Attorney Eddie Jordan Jr. is part of the problem, others want him to resign, still others are tired of waiting for him to do so.

Interesting issue. What are the proposed solutions? Is there more at issue then the D.A.? What about the police? The courts? the public defender? The wider social issues? I look forward do more of your blog. PD in New jersey
