I am very tired of Mayor Landrieu always telling the citizens of New Orleans that his crime-fighting efforts have brought murders in the city to a historic 30-year low. The only reason that has happened is that the shooters have such bad aim. Give us a count on the “injured by gunfire.” That may tell a different story.

Also, it is big news when 10 get wounded in the French Quarter. After all, this could affect tourism!! The murdered and wounded in the rest of the city are barely mentioned. I feel the situation is out of control. We have to come up with answers if we are to continue to live here.
