A friend saw a drug deal go down in front her house today. She lives Uptown in a good neighborhood and saw it happen with her own eyes. She happened to be looking out of her window. I'm not lying-she saw the exchange of money, the guy count the money, hand some pills over to the other guy. She called 911, she called the neighborhood security, she called the district police department, she called the mayor's office. No concern from anyone. It's a sad day in New Orleans. The district police department told her they couldn't do anything about it. That's nice. They're just lazy is what it is. easier for them to stop someone with an expired break tag. This is the city we live in. It's only a matter of time before someone gets shot in Audubon Park.
She is a passionate citizen. She loves New Orleans. She pays her taxes. She supports local merchants but now she is talking about moving. I don't blame her. Is this the kind of city in which we want our babies to grow up? We have to start screaming!!!!!
Gone are the days when you could walk around after dark. But come on, before we know it we won't be able to walk around in broad daylight without fearing for our lives. If you care, please email Chief Riley and let him know we won't stand for it. Tell everyone you know. Create a ruckus, I tell you!
