Army To Police New Orleans Again

What did they expect when they re-elected Nagin again !

Army To Police New Orleans Again

US soldiers are set to be redeployed on the streets of New Orleans to fight crime for the first time since the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The Louisiana governor asked for the National Guard to return to New Orleans after a weekend that saw six people murdered in the city.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin had earlier called for 300 soldiers and some 60 state police to be sent to the city.

Crime has risen in the city after a brief drop following Hurricane Katrina.

The six deaths over the weekend raised the number of murders in New Orleans this year to 52, police said.

That figure is less than half what it was a year ago - but the city's population is also only roughly half of what it was before Hurricane Katrina forced thousands from their homes last year.

Police statistics show crime has risen in recent months.

'Hurricane crime'

Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco did not specify how many troops would be deployed in New Orleans.

Calls for soldiers to return to the streets came after six people were murdered in the city at the weekend - five of them in the same incident.

The five teenagers were found shot dead in or near a car on Saturday, in what is thought to be a drug-related attack.

A city official, Oliver Thomas, told the mothers of the victims: "We are not going... to let hurricane crime replace Hurricane Katrina."

Mayor Nagin said New Orleans had suffered enough.

"This is our line in the sand. We're saying we're not going any further," he said.

According to the BBC's James Coomarasamy, there are concerns about external troops being allowed to police New Orleans - but city officials say safety is paramount, especially if those who fled the hurricane are to be lured back.

New Orleans has long been regarded as a hotbed of violent crime but the crime rate there fell sharply in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

However, residents have been complaining that a lack of adequate schooling and housing as a result of the hurricane has forced the crime rate up again.

A Florida National Guard spokesman told the Associated Press news agency some 15,000 soldiers had been sent to New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, of which 2,000 stayed until February this year.

Some 1,500 people were killed and hundreds of thousands forced from their homes when Hurricane Katrina lashed the southern US last year.

Peter,this truly touches me deeply..The Katrina disaster was prophesied by Kim Clement world wide three weeks before it all happened. We are seeing the city of New Orleans dry bones that need to come back to life of the city. God says He will if it is spoken, to breathe on that part of the earth and cause those people to walk out of the dead… We claim it!!!! We own that healing into New Orleans.. It isn’t just in New Orleans that we see the dry bones, it is of nations needing to become flesh through spiritual revival, like people have not seen that depths of His word coming to life unto them.. Wwwhheeww I sense that powerfuly!!!!!.. I prophesy it will!!!!. I will speak into existance with the word!!!Prayer, prayer and more prayers needed. Oh my precious Lord. Peter, I smell some thing brewing that I am seeing in clairvoyant visions.. It is a feeling of being choked within the spirit of those people. God showed the world New Orleans because that is how words become flesh.. God is trying to prophesy within visions through His people. I feel the choking is that God sent His revival there but there is still the stench of the old graves that need deliverance ministry… " Open those graves and send my people out of their exile, just as I did in Egypt, says the Lord…Then I will welcome you… I get this very, very strong Joel 2:25 & 26 "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm [a]—
my great army that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the LORD your God,
who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
This is the scripture the Lord took me to..WOWWWwww.. God is sending His chosen ones into great depths of this world to pray for it’s very deliverance. Thank you Peter for another extraordinary call to heal.

Peace & Love, Dove
