. there are so many victims that he no longer has time to have the names of the graves were shot in september. america raised off a box it's not just bought one of these look at the movies an american look at all the stuff that goes on in this country so all of that equates to the it's as our it's. the last name that the priest and his terrains brothers. pray for the choppers. her. military began writing those names eight years ago you will soon run out of space to write the names of the new victims. at the same moment east of the city a young man was just killed another drug related act of revenge. the police has

in new orleans two centuries of slavery have left painful scars within the african-american community. that accounts for two thirds of the town's population moreover that african-americans feel that they were abandoned during hurricane katrina. in two thousand and five under the pressure of the water dozens of poorly maintained levees broke. mud flooded eighty percent of the town that was under sea level. today the town still bears the scars of the disaster especially in the poor neighborhoods. aka the dancing than those here one of the most devastated areas. he believes that nothing has been done to rehabilitate this neighborhood. i guess.
that's right. back. up to its name. this is only one of about one hundred out of. that twenty thousand that's like. when you left. for aaron there's a bend in area so the reason for the increased crime rate. this is a. black neighborhood a high crime neighborhood become a crime in aware of drugs wherever you got drugs are. african-american people being flushed they do with the situation of the country no job no food if you're not easy. if you now do.
i land when a situation yeah yeah you know you will go to the stream the hungry people of will to be a stream. since the hurricane criminality has increased by forty percent. on the other side of the city we encounter a different atmosphere. louisiana is a former french colony and the most touristy area really is the french. arena tourists from all around the world get a. lot of. access . and of course here jazz is everywhere. and bars
with dance floors our every. day for the last three business is also played by violent last year one person was killed and nine were injured in a shoot out in the middle of the french quarter. and another night a man attempts to kidnap a drunk girl. the man tries to stop him. but the aggressor points into seattle. the man begs for mercy. dresser shoots him in the stomach then tries to kill him. luckily his weapon jams. the shooter takes flight. the men will survive this
incident. the aggressor you're a cain twenty one has already been charged with rape and robbery. you'll be arrested two days later. by night these types of aggressions are multiplying especially in restaurants which have become new targets for the criminals. the pathway is a fancy restaurant. from six months ago the own choosing and his team were the victims of an armed robbery. as lorenzo general manager. fellow for the back right up front you know. how you do it it's a riot. yeah on that day the restaurant was packed like it is tonight. the security cameras have recorded the whole scene. there were three robbers. one guy came in and maybe a second attitudes and slater two guys came in behind him the first and then the
second guy came in various other me rounds the first day i sit here came to the register. right here in the drawer then for a second guy put a gun to his head made it go to the ground they got this is not a job now or what else. plain carries a gun but he chose not to use it on that night avoiding a bloodbath it's the threat of being shot or killed that's the it's not a wallet it's not a cellphone it's not money it's not stealing my car it's someone gets shot and there's no other option do you carry a gun to know it's a difficult issue though because i'm not for it but in a mill you like this worse there are so many dangerous people with guns it makes sense for people those guns to protect themselves. in the united states the gun
issue is a sensitive subject. for protection are they responsible for the increasing number . in new orleans more and more people chose to arm themselves. play. brennan forty years old former police officer. he doesn't leave the house without his arsenal and i'm going to just go right on the waistband. all the medical evidence is really very simple it just has what we call combat balls this particular gauze has he must static agent. you know he in the not only saw they both have this wave opening feature which imagine my my pocket here got this little hook as i go to pull this out the pocket this little hook
catches the inside of the pants and it opens it automatically has a hole it out so i can i can defend myself from either side maybe a push against a wall an aside i'm not a big get this knife so i can get to this one or vice versa. like most people in new orleans brennan was traumatized by katrina. at the time he was still the police officer had to face chaos. this was if you look right there's the mississippi river this is all part of the levee system there was a breach in a levee where one of the oil tanker barges hit it and with that there was some oil so it was really nasty down here. disaster. when you have adversity at the level that katrina was that's when those true call the start coming out. of family members to dallas to evacuate and when i was coming back into the city in dallas texas i had in a p.d. units passing me leaving the city. many police officers never return.
now where you know we were very low and manpower dangerously low not only for the citizens but for the department themselves i mean these guys are you know we look we get more and more people shoot up police is just it's never seen more that than i've ever seen before. obsessed with safety. he transformed his car into a real armory. bucky all of this stuff handy just in case again something crazy happens active shooter as a you know concealed carry permit also keep a rifle is the actually technically a pistol but i keep something that's a little bit bigger than i keep additional ammunition as as well. body armor medical equipment the stuff that i would simply need to say an active shooter at a school or something like that and then also just keep kind of general preparedness stuff vehicle maintenance stuff tools things for spare flat tires
a water fluids for the vehicle general maintenance stuff that you know probably everybody should have in their vehicle. after quitting the police brennan chose to open a gun shop. you can find everything here from an automatic gun to an a k forty seven. but in the red is there going oh oh how far is the range zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero for letting us know a little bit for the growing insecurity about brennan christmas is flourishing because like especially considering that in louisiana arm sales are deregulator cool clothes you know if you anything i love you would say you have gone. and you carry it with you you have it on you today and you're sure it's ok so you feel in danger. you know. in this town the number
of firearms is booming. their sales doubled the last ten years. but a new orleans. man has found another solution the weapons to fight criminality. it's in the heart of the french quarter the live city tourists a forty year old millionaire. he made a fortune in the garbage disposal service. i'm driving you know rat today there we expose a good quote around eight hundred ninety thousand herb by. a millionaire in. his house had been burglarized several times so sidney decided to invest part of
his fortune into the security of french quarter. he created a unique and. it allows people to send real time information to the policeman of the neighborhood. you see something that says look suspicious prostitution drug dealing you see somebody getting rob you take the side and you can take a picture and send it and it goes directly here it's like having a police officer in your pocket. although one second this is a crime just came in over the radio and they say they sent a picture here you see suspicious person dolfin in governor nichols and they took a picture of him see him on the corner you see him on the ground they act like they're sleeping but they're they actually rob people when you walk. his idea was born after his conflict with the mayor of new orleans. publicly accused of being in
active in front of the rise of criminality i tried to get a meeting with the mayor and he wouldn't meet with me so i made a thirty second commercial and i started putting it all over the t.v. calling the mayor out on the crime in the cities the french quarter is under siege by criminals the problem can be it is only six blocks by thirteen. you may as well advised me to come in this equipment from the millionaire office threatening to violence in the city and every sane way to do it with garbage like. we should hope for the ministry for there was a real provocation. and so he didn't like it and he took offense to it he made millions and millions and millions of dollars off a garbage contract in the french quarter and maybe he should just to get some of that money and do it himself if he thinks it's so easy it's just not like i decided to follow his advice and invested several hundred thousand dollars to create a french quarter taskforce a unit that works directly with the task force you download it and you're able to connect police do exactly this was something that was launched just days ago in
tonight's businessman city tonight today the young millionaire has become a star in the american media. you know who as you can see had way less gray white black and blue. this afternoon as yet another t.v. interview. has become a reference in the fight against criminality. you know it's not just a lot of people in jail for arresting our way out it's not that fast we have to have programs the mayor the city the citizens work together. if we receive so much. it's because is that there's a real success in this neighborhood criminality is down by forty five percent.
players will remember you when you don't. see the derelict what they did they could put it. to what they knew not through only ten space it. may. lead to no killing said. semana claiming to know servant is messy that to. alex you speak french. on the same. send them continue to talk of this busy the council itself to folks. i had a great education a good job and a family that loved me. i never had to worry about how i would eat and where i
