Shooting on Canal St. in New Orleans
Several young people were involved in a shooting last night on Canal Street. As many as seven people were injured. Luckily nobody was killed. The shooting on Canal Street in New Orleans is the latest violence to occur in the last several days. The violence has escalated in the past few days and if the momentum keeps up it will just get worse. The situation is critical. It can't go on like this. The crime is ready to explode. You can't blame the politicians right now. They're as scared and helpless as everyone else.
It can't go on like this. Wasting good life. Me and my brother are restarting a youth program soon.
It's time for the bad boys to devote their energies to something else. We're going to see if we can cool out some of the beef. All that beef over crumbs. Unless you're the Don, it's not worth it. Even if you're on top you will not be there for long.
We're going to try and help out. Try and make a difference in a youths life. Me and my brother have been talking and we're going to start a youth program where rude boys can come and play basketball and chill out.
It might only be for young men. But don't quote me on that. The church is busy deciding on a new pastor so it will not be long.
I know when people talk about doing these things you think they are just talking. I am serious. The crime is out of control. We're going to try and help as many youth as we can. We have not put together that many rules yet. I'll check into it. Things like if you are kicked out of school can you still attend.
My brothers on the vestry at St. Lukes Episcopal church on N. Dorgenois. I'm going to be talking to him in the next few weeks to see if the church will support this effort.
In the mean time mothers who have a child that they can not control, make sure you check back here or look out for an announcement in the paper. Some grandmothers are having trouble. Aunts, uncles, just hang in there and we're going to try the best we can to help you through this awful crime wave.
The city is going through a very tough time right now and it will probably get much worse before it gets better. The court system and the police department are under a lot of stress and we as citizens should pitch in to help them out.
