Crime in New Orleans

Crime in New Orleans is different, according
to an article in TIME. And criminals from New Orleans re-located to Texas
behave differently in custody.

While in New Orleans this week I listened to a shopkeeper tell me about crime in the city. Her contention is that today it’s different than before Katrina, and before Katrina it was different than in her home state of Texas. She’s been in New Orleans for twenty years.

I had no experience nor frame of reference to understand her views. But an article in TIME about New Orleans criminals displaced to Texas provides very interesting insight into their behavior. You can find it at What Happened to the Gangs of New Orleans? It’s fascinating reporting.
