Opinion: No Justice, No Peace: Violence and New Orleans' Criminal Justice System


By Kezia Kamenetz

Just this summer, New Orleans has suffered from numerous heinous acts of violence – including a shower of bullets released on innocent Bourbon Street revelers and the drive-by shooting of children as young as two in the Lower Ninth Ward. Every time someone is killed in the streets of this city I find myself questioning how I can live here. How can I love a place where such violence takes place regularly? How can I invest in a city where a majority of citizens justifiably live in fear for their children? What kind of future does a place where babies are shot have?
