Killings having domino's effect on Streets of New Orleans
Written by 

CRIME-SCENEOn the bloody streets of New Orleans, it has been an extremely violent first quarter of 2015, with a murder rate twice as high as in 2014.

It seems every night there are shootings and/or murders in New Orleans. These crimes are spread out over all areas of the city, not concentrated in just “high crime neighborhoods.” Therefore, no one is safe in New Orleans. With a declining police force and fewer homicide detectives, criminals are running rampant on the streets of New Orleans.

 

The latest outrage occurred early this morning at 1 am. in the 6100 block of North Roman in the Lower 9th Ward. Once again, a pizza delivery driver was targeted. This time, the victim was a 36 year old father of three, who was only carrying $30.00 at the time of his murder.

This is the second incident involving a Domino's pizza driver in just the last few months. Back in September, Richard Yaeger was killed while on his delivery route. Two teenagers have been accused in his senseless murder.

Sadly, hard working people delivering pizza or driving taxi cabs are being targeted by criminals with no regard for human life.

These murderers did not care that the driver was trying to provide a living for his young family. They were only concerned about robbing him. In this case, his life was taken for a mere $30.00. Human life is priceless, but to realize that one of our hard working fellow citizens was killed for $30.00 is beyond disgusting.

Of course, there was no immediate response from our elected officials or community leaders.

This is an all too familiar story and it will continue as long as the people of New Orleans tolerate this level of violence.

According to Glenn Mueller, CEO of local Domino's franchisee RPM Pizza LLC., “There's a killer on the loose...We've talked to the police chief and the mayor. We're upset. We're aggressively working to find the person or persons responsible." Mueller is helping the victim's family as they deal with this tragedy.

He is typical of so many in New Orleans who show compassion to victims of crime. There are hard working citizens in groups like Victims and Citizens Against Crime who try to deal with the avalanche of victims and their family members in New Orleans.

Thank goodness there are some groups who are able to take action in response to the out of control murder rate. Too bad the politicians in City Hall do not feel such urgency.
