Hey Nagin, I’m Laughing at Your Superior Intellect.
What is going on in New Orleans? The southern mecca of liberalism and democrat stronghold is well on its way to becoming the murder capital of the world. It looks like the people of New Orleans have discovered that you really do reap what you sow. After the laughable way Mayor Ray Nagin handled the hurricane Katrina fiasco, you must wonder why he was reelected.
In an effort to halt the slaughter, Mayor Nagin has declared a crackdown on violent crime. “We’re sending a signal that the system that used to allow you to commit a murder and there were no consequences is over. It has been easier to commit a murder than any other crime in New Orleans.” Mayor Nagin is the head of the system, so one can only conclude from his statement that in the past, he has gone a little light on the crime of murder.
How exactly does he propose to crackdown on violent crime? His superior intellect calls for the public to take a stand on crime and to setup police check points. Yes, that’s what he said,.”A call for the public to take a stand on crime.” That would be fine except that it’s the public that are being slaughtered. And I can certainly see how check points will help if a murder is occurring within 100 feet of one. But to be fair, police could get lucky. It is possible for someone to toss a freshly slain corpse in the back seat of a car and happen upon a check point while in the process of dumping it into the canal. The officer at the check point would no doubt get a commendation for outstanding police work and be promoted to detective.
On your quest for wisdom you must understand that in a free society, the people that are elected into office reflect the moral compass of the citizens of that town, city, state, or country. You place honorable people in office you get honorable government; you place corrupt people in office you get a corrupt government. The one sure thing about the democratic system is that the citizens usually get what they deserve.
