Investors are finding that to be their dilemma in an area of New Orleans where the Faubourg St. Roch Improvement Association is trying to bring to life to their neighborhood.
Two black gunmen were caught on video bursting into the The St. Roch Tavern and demanding cash. The robbery took 28 seconds, reports day. The bartender said it was just a little set back.
One of the challenges faced by black-blighted areas is the inability of black criminals to comprehend -- or care about -- the long-term effects of crimes that take less that half-a-minute.
And the criminals start young.
From our news source we read:
Wednesday night, just hours after St. Roch Tavern was robbed, another armed robbery happened near Markey’s Bar in the Bywater.
Police say four women were together on a corner in the 3000 block of Royal Street, near Markey's, when a male approached them and tried to steal one of their purses at gunpoint. Another three males acted as lookouts, all four suspects ran off after the attempted armed robbery.
Shortly after, three of the suspects, ages 11, 13, and 14, were arrested in the area of St. Claude and St. Ferdinand, said police. Their identities are not being released because they are juveniles.
Charles Ducros, 17, fled on a bike and was later arrested in the 3100 block of Urquhart Street. He, along with the 11 and 14 year old, are charged with four counts of attempted armed robbery. The 13-year-old was booked with accessory armed robbery and three counts of attempted armed robbery.
Police are now looking into whether they are responsible for other crimes in the area.
Crime maps show there have been six armed robberies since Saturday within a half mile radius in the Marigny, Bywater and St. Roch neighborhoods.Apologists for black crime often cite external causes but video cameras don't blink nor do they lie.
“The 5th district is struggling with manpower, but we believe at this time they're doing as much as they can with what they have to work with,” said Floyd.
Wagner describes the men who robbed the St. Roch Tavern as young black males. The gunman was wearing a dark sweatshirt and dark beanie with a pom pom. The other suspect had a black hoodie with thin tan stripes, pulled tight around his face.
Others contend that arresting young blacks for violent crime leads to disparate impact. That is, they argue that arrest records will make it more difficult for criminals to excel later in life. Black rascality, they conclude, should go unpunished.
If you are aware of pre-teen white children committing armed robbery anywhere in the world in the past fifty years, please post a link in the comment section below. We want to be fair and balanced in our reporting.
The above report doesn't specifically identify the young thugs as black. It is possible they could have been white, Asian, Indians, Jews, Puerto Ricans, Māorians, or of mixed ancestry. A Google-map street-view 'tour' of the area proves that the neighborhood is black. The probability overrides the possibility that by any rational standard no one would conclude that a white soccer mom dropped off the kids on the way to Dairy Queen to make some quick cash by pulling guns on gullible white people dumb enough to venture into a blighted area at night. But the possibility can't be totally ruled out.
Meanwhile, consider the consequences of sending your children to school with such criminals. It is for this reason -- violent black behavior -- that schools were segregated. Segregation was not implemented by racist white people who irrationally hated blacks. Jim Crow laws existed to protect white patrons and employees of establishments like the The St. Roch Tavern from black violence.
