Is Baton Rouge ghetto worse than N.O. ghetto?

some buddies of mine and I were talking about this today and i was curious to hear the OT's opinion. Since post Katrina, the murder rates have gone way up in Baton Rouge. But which do you think are more dangerous.......to be left in BR ghetto at night alone, or NO?

They're equally ghetto. The main difference is that New Orleans has a more spread-out area, whereas Baton Rouge ghettos are more confined to certain areas.

I agree. But which do you think is more dangerous? I know the gangs in BR have grown and spreading out

Give the numbers.

In the late 90s, Baton Rouge was the murder capital of America.

thats not late 90's... which is what he said, and its also percapita, nola doesnt have the most murders total.... i think its chicago... but nola's ghetto is more undecuated and far more willing to off each other due to their unedecation... plus no homes post katrina, gang "turf", drug sales territory in the hood... the hood in nola is straight hood... other parts are safe as shite... i.e.lakeview, garden sitrict.... jsut know where not to go and you're fine

I used to deliver pizza to downtown BR. Had a lady tell me that she didn't know how we came out to places like where she lived to deliver pizza so late at night.

I told her to quit calling me out here then. Most everyone was cool though.

That depends on what you consider dangerous and to whom. Most crime that occurs in "ghettos" are black-on-black and drug related.

I would hate to be a delivery driver. You hear lots of stories about them getting held up at gunpoint

All I know their are some areas in New Orleans that cops have pulled me over and told me if it is night and you approach this intersection and there is a redlight just cruise on through it and don't stop...
