After a recent surge in crime and a lack of acknowledgement from the Tulane administration, it is time for the campaign to return.
Several times a week for the past month now, I have been receiving crime reports of armed robberies, home invasions and carjackings. This most recent crime occurring at 1.45 in the afternoon on one of the busiest intersections of Broadway and St. Charles confirms that there is a serious problem. I still have yet to receive an email from Tulane regarding it, leaving me to find out via Uptown Messenger.
This brings to mind many fond memories of sitting in my kitchen with friends, listening to music, talking, enjoying ourselves, with the front door open. Of course we should lock our doors and set the alarm at night, but who thinks to lock the door in the middle of the afternoon when you’re surrounded by friends?
I want to stay in my beautiful city of New Orleans but I don’t want to live in a violent environment like this.
Everyone needs to do their part in this by calling the administration, the police department, the mayor and telling them that whatever they are doing is not enough. New Orleans is an amazing city that should not be brought down by rampant, violent crime.
We urge you to call:
Scott Cowen: 504.865.5201
Mayor Landrieu: 504.658.4000
Police Commissioner James Carter: 504.658.4049
