New Orleans had a major hurricane and a major problem. This was compounded by incompetence, idleness, lack of initiative, criminal intent and government foul ups. Now ten years on Orleans is still a mess where the blacks lived says The Telegraph - see A Decade On And Hurricane Katrina Is Still With Us In New Orleans.

New Orleans 2007 is still a mess
Why doesn't the government do something about it? Why doesn't some one else get on with it? Why don't the inmates get on with it. The answer to that one is clear. They are too busy robbing and raping elsewhere.
New Orleans Aftermath
Is about the mess after and it was a multigigabuck mess.
New Orleans and Mexico
Things happen in Mexico as well but they are handled differently. No murders, rape or looting; just getting on with it and helping others. The Third World sounds like a better place to me.
New Orleans and Urban Warfare
Major troubles bring out the best in some and the worst in others.
New Orleans Looting

New Orleans Mayor Charged With Fraud [ 21 January 2013 ]
Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has been indicted on 21 federal corruption charges including wire fraud, bribery and money laundering.
The charges are the outgrowth of a City Hall corruption investigation that already has resulted in guilty pleas by two former city officials and two businessmen. The counts include wire fraud, bribery, money laundering, filing false tax returns and conspiracy.
Nagin, a former cable television executive, was a political novice before being elected to his first term as mayor in 2002, buoyed by strong support from white voters. Hurricane Katrina in 2005 elevated Nagin to the national stage, where he gained a reputation for colourful and sometimes cringe-inducing rhetoric. In January 2006, he apologized for a Martin Luther King Day speech in which he predicted New Orleans would be a “chocolate city” and asserted that “God was mad at America.”
Strong support from black voters helped Nagin win re-election in 2006 despite widespread criticism of his post-Katrina leadership. But the glacial pace of rebuilding, a surge in violent crime and the budding City Hall corruption investigation chipped away at Nagin’s popularity during his second term.
New Orleans proved things about blacks, things that Americans knew anyway, things the Main Stream Media was determined not to say. Nagin was the man in charge. Nagin was black. Nagin was thieving when he should have been sorting things out.
New Orleans Mayor On Trial For Fraud [ 28 January 2014 ]
"Nagin, who was swept into office on promises of good government in 2002 and re-elected in 2006, was indicted by a federal grand jury on 21 counts of corruption, including bribery, wire fraud, conspiracy, money laundering and filing false tax returns."
Black New Orleans Mayor Took $12 Thousand Monthly Bribes Says Witness [ 5 February 2014 ]
What are the Main Stream Media saying about Nagin? Not a lot but then he is a black criminal, the one who masterminded the gross foul up which was after Hurricane Katrina. The weather wasn't his fault; the rest was. To be fair, add in Bush & Co.
New Orleans Mayor Convicted Of Corruption [ 15 February 2014 ]
But only on 20 fraud raps. He beat one.

New Orleans Is Getting More Dangerous [ 9 February 2017 ]
Seventy-five people were killed or wounded by gunfire in New Orleans in the first month of the year – more than twice the total in January 2016, according to a Times-Picayune tally of police reports. The staggering total this month, more than two a day, comes on the heels of a violent 2016 that saw increases in murders and nonfatal shootings.......
While too early to draw conclusions on the rest of the year, criminologists say New Orleans’ rising gun violence is evidence of a troubling trend playing out in cities across the country. Baltimore, for example, had 25 killings in the first 26 days of the year, according to The Baltimore Sun.
“The national trend doesn’t look good,” said Jay Corzine, a sociology professor at the University of Central Florida. “It’s pointing to, in large urban areas, more violence and more lethal violence. Right now, nobody has a good handle on it.”
America has Murder Hot Spots; lots are in New Orleans. They translate into blacks with guns. In Chicago they carry out three quarters of the murders. Is it a gun problem or black problem? NB The Armed Citizen prevents crime; he is there when it matters. The police turn up later.
