And out more -- -- -- -- what I don't understand this -- been going on.
Hundreds years' time in this city -- as he never gets better.
People think of New Orleans is the Big Easy -- you know bill we love going to the Mardi Gras and jazz festival and all those things but that part of New Orleans the French Quarter is such a tiny part of the city.
The real this is not the Big Easy this is the big sleazy.
New Orleans has the murder rate fourteen times greater than New York City to -- on up -- with the Detroit.
It's a population of 320000.
During one year 66000.
Were in this jail -- in prison.
So you have this violent culture get this violent society -- gun violence everywhere and you have a dysfunctional.
Government you have the police department under federal watch since Hurricane Katrina because the -- officers were shooting unarmed civilians.
Now you have the sheriff's department running this jail.
And the the -- by his name Marlon -- -- elected in 2004.
The sheriff says well maybe somebody doctored this video this can't possibly represent my jail although was clearly shot.
During his tenure four years ago when the house the detention the ten story building that I have been in.
Was still open now it has been close but here you have this face off -- -- the federal government saying.
-- -- who shot this video.
If it was an inmate that shot it.
We didn't make it the camera if it was a guard that shot it why is it that not a single sheriff's deputy has been disciplined.
For what we see.
In this shocking video I.
You got Bobby Jindal the governor he's a good guy I think he's an honest guy got a new mayor narrow its lender -- -- and his -- of write this there is -- center Nagin the former mayor and Katrina he's been indicted he's in trouble but he is a corrupt city and always has been.
And I don't I key why can't it and prove why doesn't it get better.
You know I I can't answer that I think that when you consider that what New Orleans really is aside from -- -- is it that you -- -- -- -- Manhattan and you just at this time square that's the French Quarter that's where the tourists go and everything else was a vast urban waste land.
That's what the story is no -- and an enormous amount.
Poverty in the city but again there's a service industry there that can support the population.
So all right you got bad guys in there clean amount.
You know the sitting -- this city is a disgrace what at one point an and they I didn't Giuliani.
Came in with Bratton and they cleaned it up.
Here but and that's saying I never clean it.
Up New Orleans and the problem is that the police are considered corrupt there's no relationship between the fire them and -- other -- I totally agree that's -- the feds are there the police are operating under a consent decree by the Department of Justice now they're debating whether this should be a consent decree on the prisons but you have to remember -- did the central focus here is that -- murder -- big gun violence why don't they have stop and -- How aggressive police I don't know -- why don't they have wow really I guess I suppose I just attempt to get the -- Louisiana aren't demanding but I have to have responsibility this -- -- that's his jail and he's on the other -- is -- reelection but he should be -- not indicted he should certainly be fired he should be rejected by the people of New Orleans but this is a dysfunctional city is a disgrace it is the big -- one minute.
