"I do feel unsafe on the streets of St. Bernard. There is no one around in

the deserted neighborhoods except the contruction workers that I do not know

and many of them speaking a language I do not understand so that is very

un-nerving when you are a female and there is a group of foreign men

cousin was robbed at gunpoint, abducted to use his debit card at gunpoint at
an ATM, stolen his cell phone and wallet, etc. (unfortunately he wasn't

next sheriff, lots of folks will find refuge in safer quarters elsewhere or
turn to vigilantes to protect themselves and loved ones.
