Own the Streets

A little competence and effective resource management goes a long way. Shocker, that. Oyster reports at Your Right Hand Theif that crime is down dramatically in New Orleans this month.
This is not a city spiralling out of control. It's not a city that needs curfews, the National Guard, or a perpetual "state of emergency". It's a city that needs 300 additional well-trained, professional police officers, plus sterner courts, and candid leaders. That's all.
He also wonders if the MSM is going to cover the drop in crime as hysterically as they reported the rise in crime. I haven't seen any reports yet, and I can guarantee you I'm not holding my breath.
