OK, so it's not exactly the same situation as early-90s Los Angeles, but if you haven't heard, New Orleans has had a bit of a crime problem following the Saints Super Bowl detente. It's been so bad that Drew Brees (who just flew back from a WAR ZONE) is fed up and has made a plea to New Orleanians to stop the violence.
Per his Twitter account:
Maybe Drew should have brought some of those toys he was playing with for the NOPD to use on these violent offenders. Or maybe this a problem that not even Breesus Maximus and his Saints army can solve. At the very least, though, we can be appreciative that New Orleans is home to a superstar athlete that doesn't just hide behind his wealth and ignores what ails his city.
