    Surprise! There was a story in the Chronicle about how Gretna police were stopping anyone from crossing the bridge from New Orleans to the Westbank.

    to play devils advocate on this one: how many of you have ever dealt with the problems that arise from housing projects? i have....and that town will need A LOT more than 1 police officer to handle the influx.

    how enthusiastic would you be if you were a homeowner in that area and knew that the value of your home would decrease rapidly because of the nearby government housing?

    Also, as a sheriff of a small department, i'd be concerned about manpower issues knowing that there is an average 20% elevation in crime rate in and around housing projects


    now, devils advocate over:

    this is the same state that the disaster occured in, shouldn't there be some sense of duty to surrounding communities?
