In 2009, there was a story that appeared on NOLA.com about an eight year old who was shot, along with two others, in New Orleans:
An 8-year-old boy and two other males were shot Tuesday night in West Carrollton, police said.After the story went up, the following comment appeared:
The shooting occurred shortly before 9 p.m. in the 1700 block of Monroe Street, near Green Street, New Orleans Police Officer Garry Flot said.
The 8-year-old was shot in the arm and had a graze wound to the knee. One of the other people shot was hit in the foot and the other was shot in the thigh, Flot said. Information about their ages was not available immediately.
I was horrified at the suggestion that we should "just let them," including an eight year old, "kill each other," and notified NOLA.com, using their "Inappropriate? Alert us." link but the comment remained up for some time, at least through the night. (I do not recall it being removed at all but it is no longer there.)no need for cameras..just let them kill each other.
Same old story
Same type people
We need white leadership and black flight.
And others focus the blame on the victims and their families:newtonawlins,
Kudos on the mentoring. That's a noble thing to do.
The sad part is that while you're mentoring, the black population of New Orleans is using its political advantage to prevent any meaningful solutions to the problem. Their only answer is more money, but their track record proves that money in the hands of pandering democratic politicians is a tool for evil rather than good.
First of all, an 8 year old has no business playing outside at 9pm no matter what type of neighborhood you live in. An 8 year old should be bathe, fed, and in bed asleep at that time. I'm pretty sure the parent/parents are aware that they don't live in Mayberry, but STILL, they allow the child to play at that time of night. Charge the breeders with NEGLECT and make them go to WORK to pay the hospital bill. I'm almost certain they are unemployed, otherwise, the child would be inside preparing for the next day with them. I sure as heck don't want to pay for their inadequate parenting.
