Katrina Crime Wave Still Hammering Houston
The massive crime wave which began a year ago with the massive dispersion of hundreds of thousands of blacks from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina continues, and shows no signs of abating. Cities all around the country are reporting alarming spikes in the crime rates due to Katrina refugees, but Houston, Texas has been especially hard hit.
According to a recent Associated Press article, "Houston took in 150,000 evacuees - the most of any U.S. city - after Katrina struck on Aug. 29. Houston police believe the evacuees are partly responsible for a nearly 17.5 percent increase in homicides so far this year over the same period in 2005. About 21 percent of Houston's 232 homicides through July 25 involved an evacuee as either a suspect or a victim, according to police, who attribute much of the bloodshed to fighting among rival New Orleans gang members." There have also been reports of shooting wars between local drug gangs and invaders from New Orleans who are seeking to muscle in on the most profitable drug corners and housing project rackets, etc.
The Houston police are not impressed with the standard of law enforcement in the Big Sleazy. The article quoted the head of the Houston homicide division, Captain Dale Brown, as saying "New Orleans allowed a lot of these guys to stay on the street for whatever reason or be picked up and released after 60 days...Texas law, I don't want to say it's tougher, but we take these offenses very seriously."
According to the AP, "Judge Robert Eckels, chief executive of Harris County, which includes Houston, said Katrina evacuees arrested in the Houston have cost the county's criminal justice system more than $18 million. In June, Texas Gov. Rick Perry sent $19.5 million to Houston to help pay for additional officers and overtime to police the city after Katrina."
Katrina evacuees, almost all black, were shipped all over the country by the tens of thousands, including into predominantly white areas such as Vermont and Iowa whose liberal governing elite claimed to desire more "diversity" in their localities.
In a number of cities such as Houston, Baton Rouge, Atlanta and San Francisco, "Little New Orleans" neighborhoods have sprung up, mostly in taxpayer-subsidized government and municipal housing projects. In most of these areas an immediate jump in violent crime such as assaults and homicides and in property crimes such as robbery and burglary were noted, and some of this even got into the controlled media last autumn despite the general blanket of silence which is thrown over black misdeeds.
The overall negative effect which the forcible transplantation of hundreds of thousands of negros has had on the recipient localities, if it is ever honestly assessed, will prove to be huge. The likelihood of any such honest analysis ever occurring in the present society is, however, almost non-existent.
