New Orleans is my favorite destination in America. Bad food in the Big Easy is good food anywhere else. It's like New Years eve in Times Square at least six nights a week in the Quarter. New Orleans and the surrounding parishes have a real problem with violent crime. Just last month the New Orleans Police shot and killed Wendell Allen a 20-year-old unarmed man during a marijuana raid inside a Gentilly home. Why? Police had a search warrant and found five whole ounces of pot!
Wendell was a former high school football hero and oh, BTW he's black. Unlike Trayvon Martin he wasn't killed by some over the top community watch activist, no he died because our elected policy makers continue to spend our precious tax dollars arresting, booking, prosecuting, jailing, sentencing, incarcerating and paroling dangerous criminals like Wendell Allen. Oh wait, he's dead, Bill Bennett the former drug czar was right after all - marijuana can be deadly - especially when you are targeted by the police for possession.
