Another day, another dead in The Big Uneasy

By C.B. Forgotston - March 21, 2007

As I write this, New Orleans has recorded at least its 42nd murder in the first 77 days of the year.

A victim of a shooting in the 9th Ward has died. Also, another shooting victim from earlier this month has died. Shootings, which are not taken too seriously because they are so common, are getting pretty dangerous.

People are beginning to die as a result.

With so many murders of black people I'm beginning to wonder if there is a conspiracy. Strangely, the NOPD seldom has any suspects or motives in these murders. Equally strange is that when the NOPD finds a perpetrator, the District Attorney cuts them loose without a trial. Hmmmm.

Perhaps someone can check with Mayor Nagin to find out what he knows. He has a good handle on conspiracies.

The mayor should be enlisted in the fight against crime in the city because he always knows which "they" is responsible.
