Yep, Unfortunately.... this is nothing new...At least we're not number 1 like we use to be!! This is due primarily to the shrinking middle class in the area... It's no secret that residents are moving to South Bossier and East to Ellerbe areas to avoid the lower income "transitional" neighborhoods...Within these transitional neighborhoods, there is no incentive to remodel housing...So, kids growing up in these neighborhoods are a product of these depleting neighborhoods and school districts..... AKA they learn to fight with their fists and not with their minds...

I have a hard time believing Shreveport is more dangerous than New Orleans. How old is this study?

They must have done the survey at Kokopellis!

I find it hard to believe we are worse than New Orleans.

Here I found the actual report:

From C.Q. Press:

This is my hometown and this report saddens me. We have a real PR and image problem in this state, on top of our real problems such as too much crime. I guess they go hand in hand with one another.

My husband saw this coming years ago! When he talked me into moving from Ellerbe Rd. to South BC I was quite reluctant! It's been a positive experience from schools, to the neighborhood, to low crime etc! I highly recommend it!
