Oh, how times have changed over the past few years. Things like this never
happened. At worse, someone was caught using steroids to enhance his
baseball career <etc...).

Now there's killings, multiple rapes, break-ins, thievery beyond one's
imagination and much, much more. Horrific.

Now, the New Orleans area (New Orleans at this time) is being singled out as
"The Murder Capital--of the World!". And spillover from its trash entering
da parish at an astounding rate. Are there paroles in da parish?
Neighborhood watches or just neighborhood demolitions only? What should
residents be concerned? Is the re-elected sheriff doing all he can to curb
or is these terrible crimes out of control and just the tip of the iceberg
of things yet to come? Where's the outrage? Marches? Or is everyone content
to await the next crime?

A Violet man was booked with armed robbery in connection with a Sept. 26
incident during which three masked men armed with guns forced their way into
a Chalmette residence and demanded money from the occupants, the St. Bernard
Parish Sheriff's Office said.

Lennie Brown, 18, 2104 Colonial Blvd., was arrested Oct. 1 after being
stopped by deputies. A mask was found inside his vehicle, the sheriff's
office said in a news release Monday.

Detectives had developed information after the robbery showing that Brown
might have been involved.

No one was injured in the home invasion in the 3500 block of Chalona Drive.
Detectives believe the home was targeted specifically, rather than randomly
attacked, the sheriff's office said. It did not provide specifics.

The three bandits stole a purse containing a cell phone and $100.

The case is still under investigation.

Several of the victims told investigators that one of the bandits wore a
mask that left much of his face unobscured. After his arrest, Brown was also
identified in a lineup, the sheriff's office said.

Brown remains in St. Bernard Parish Prison in lieu of $100,000 bond
