Shellshocked: A Documentary About Growing Up in the Murder Capital of America

quote:

New Orleans, Louisiana is the murder capital of the United States. For the last decade, statistics have shown murder rates four to six times higher than the national average. Eighty percent of the victims are black males, mostly in their teenage years. This is the city's greatest neglected crisis with profound implications for the issues of violence and crime most American cities face. New Orleans government, law enforcement, community leaders, and well-intentioned citizens cannot agree on a prognosis or a solution to this situation. Wherever a disagreement is escalating into violence, an execution is being planned, or a victim is taking his last breath, it is more than likely a youth is witnessing or carrying out these actions.

Honestly, I thought it would be higher than 80%.

What a shame. And there's no way to stop it, that way of life is ingrained in every generation.

They don't want to be gangsters or drug dealers? Bullllll shite.


Based on the preview, they are going to blame it on assault rifles and lack of textbooks. Come on.

This is the real problem in America, not just New Orleans.

I am always stunned by the silence on this subject by black leaders.

You have to account for the innocent or sometimes not so innocent black chicks that get caught in the crossfire.

Wow all you want, that is the mindset of most whites in NOLA. Leave the white folk alone and you can thug it up all you want.
