I'm sure the extortion of businesses is more lucrative than the drugs.
And gambling, prostitution, larceny, kidnapping, etc. Anywhere there is a lot of money they will figure out a way to get their hands on it.

I can't take 4 steps on 5th without someone trying to sell me weed or coke. I take it as a compliment. I used to only get the guys trying to sell me Viagra or Cialis...

New Orleans has an extremely high murder rate. I would go.

HOWEVER, if there was a shoot out in a club that killed multiple people one block off of Bourbon......THEN another bar shooting. Then a murder at 7:25pm happened in the middle of Bourbon street......and then another murder 5 blocks off Bourban....yea, I would be concerned going to New Orleans.

1) Not in a 6 month period and not to the extreme as Playa.

2) If I frequented New Orleans, had a soft spot for the place like I do for Playa and I saw that the instances were becoming more frequent and closer to where I spend time, then yea, I would be on a New Orleans message board discussing the increase. Trying to figure out what the city is doing. And try and find out "what the hell is going on".

I have nothing against Playa. I LOVE Playa. Feels like a 2nd home. Thats why I am interested in the rise of murders.

You were also "just sayin" that it was "getting out of hand" or something to that extent. You wanting to walk that back yet? Because it was kind of ridiculous, IMO.

You know what the hell is going on.
And if you don't, hit up some local Mexico media and find out.
But, I think you know.

Damn, you are popular . I walk AV. 5 two times a day, every day from calle 28 to Paseo del Carmen and I might get solicited 3 times or so about buying drugs. You must have the look, whatever that is. I completely ignore them and walk by like I never heard what they said.

I love this city.
It does bother me there have been some gross acts of violence in the tourist corridor like we've never seen before.
I won't back down from that.
But I'm not running away.
And I won't tell people not to visit.
Charlotte, NC (my hometown) has seen a large spike in murders this year.
I still love that city but it can still bother me.
So...knock it off, knucklehead.

Knucklehead or not, I thought your words were a bit overdramatic. And you know better than to think I am gonna knock it off.

Occasionally
But I want a "happy beginning" to go with that "happy ending".
