This type of stuff happens all the time in NOLA

I grew up there. Living in the inner city is dangerous. The war on drugs has made a very profitable free market economy where there are no contracts, disputes are only settled with a gun. The welfare system and educational system has bred a class of people who are ignorant, have no prospects for improving their lot in life, and place zero value on the life of their fellow human beings.

This type of stuff is not a "false flag." Yet, it is a direct result of the government trying to help people and keep us safe. Take a look at places where the government offers the most assistance, it is also the places with the worst outcomes for people growing up there and the highest level of violence. The more help the government provides, the worse things get.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis
