was also affected by violence. i'm sixty years though i lost a son down in the wall he was seventy it be about thirty eight now he was shot he was shot emerge it's a suspected murder in your mum has several more for a minute or could come at least over the years by the at least twelve members of my family close members and murder. the reason behind those murders is drug trafficking. like many others trains brother was a drug dealer he made a lot of money. cia me. and this is already at a pretty much lived his life up in the. for the most part mango is the clown and that was all i had
a person now talk about movies. even using you know clothes as one of the things that we. know when mayhem was in the other. very early on the young man felt deep into criminality most criminals have weapons here. that he's got a lot of. black shoes that you look around and he wanted people. out and i don't mean a lot of times and so that's something that i still check for. in the afternoon goes to the very fancy esplanade avenue to go to st anna church. and entire war is dedicated to the victims of crimes committed in this city. no. less a lot of man. on this one more than three hundred names for this year only. most
of these men and women were shocked. and under thirty. who would give some type of commemoration so the people that lost their lives said . bill terry the priest came up with the idea to write those names on the walls of his church. and we decided that naming the names of murder victims in a public display would be helpful in reminding us all that these are human beings. this morning you will add five new names to his memorial including tarim brother. there are so many victims that he no longer has time to have the name. graves were shot september. america raised off
a box it's not just bought it is one of the reasons look at the movies an american look at all the stuff that goes on in this country so all of that equates to the just as our it's. the last name that the priest and his terrains brothers. pray for the future. of her. military they can writing those names eight years and. he will soon run out of space to write the names of the new victims. at the same moment east of the city a young man was just killed another drug related act of revenge. the police has shut down the neighborhood the local t.v. stations are already there and it is very real what was hit by gunfire killed five health. a young cousin of the victim was shot in the arm also admitted to having
gone well too heavily armed men fired on the young man as he was leaving his home. shell casings are all over the ground bullet holes. the neighborhood is in shock. and. the mother of the victim this devastation. this last sunday. this is still about it think the it's over history and it. soon as that goes on is that. they know was designed a month of the love in the bullet in my birth the birth of the mayor in the n.h.l. my life brave enough people you saw in his own untruthful he wanted me to be born out of the woods. in the. kind of a risk every day business my brother. how.
they keep it running. through. the effects. great. britain. the murderers could be from the same neighborhood. but. this is unbelievable so you can identify you know you know you are going to show you just oh my nieces and my son them not because from aleppo. jacob lives just across the road from the victim he is also a drug dealer. what happened today doesn't surprise him. it was that most people of my age looked up to him to do with his feet like i.e. handy so. when he was in the boat you know but what you do home is.
like they say you. know. in the black neighborhoods like this for. forty percent of children live below the poverty line. unemployment is twice as high as in the rest of the city. these inequalities have created racial tensions. on the other side of the town in this upmarket area tarina stopped by i want to. call it one of these about. just giving him grief for talking to white journalists. he would say that's then. you have the right but i mean they have done so well in terms of bringing more of a mountain. to. oh my ok i'm sure there where they are.
you helping them bring more people in this place ok so this is a mix like neighborhood it's not just right now the whole center and we don't have you hands out when those neighborhoods like this are now they may think there's a video saying this don't bring more of their writings are going to cause i have no use to discuss what you do to the public may i write this it is for us they answer this question they think ok ok he's like you know people can you ask an address this is you and you versus i or if i was at one have met a gun in the face of the separation is our salvation. the best on the way we can get them to stop killing devil. like. this woman is part of the nation of the so that. a radical muslim organization that promotes the superiority of the black race.
had a great education a good job and a family that loved me. i never had to worry about how i would eat and where i would sleep. i'm facing christmas alone out on the streets of london. well you look to be. a cut above the bully like you go to school you know to somebody who still give out food for the stuff. you don't really feel like he would be doing that. and then. the guy just came over to mr me and gave me a change of this book. hello
in new orleans two centuries of slavery have left painful scars within the african-american community. that accounts for two thirds of the town's population moreover that african-americans feel that they were abandoned during hurricane katrina. in two thousand and five under the pressure of the water dozens of poorly maintained levees broke. mud flooded eighty percent of the town that was under sea level. today the town still bears the scars of the disaster especially in the poor neighborhoods. aka the dancing that is here one of the most devastated areas. he believes in nothing has been done to rehabilitate this
neighborhood. i've. just. i. think five ten years after it's me. this is only one of about twenty thousand. that twenty times stuff just like all. right. but. for air it has a bend in area so the reason for the increased crime rate. is all the. black neighborhood. high crime people become a crime anywhere trumps wherever you got drugs. african american people the flow speed with the situation of the country. the
food if you're not easy. if you now do. oh what a situation. you will go to the street the hungry people will do good street . since the hurricane criminality has increased by forty percent. on the other side of the city we encounter a different atmosphere. louisiana is a former french colony and the most touristic are you really the french i. mean of course from all around the world gathered a. lot of. success i. think.
and of course here jazz is everywhere. bars with dance floors in every corner. for the last two years disney has also played by violence last year one person was killed and nine were injured in a shoot out in the middle of the french quarter. and another night a man attempts to kidnap a drunk girl. men tries to stop him. but the aggressor points into seattle. the man begs for mercy. but the aggressor shoots him in the stomach then tries to kill him. luckily his weapon jams. the shooter takes
flight. the men will survive this incident. the aggressor you're a cain twenty one has already been charged with rape and robbery. you'll be arrested two days later. my knight these types of aggressions are multiplying especially in restaurants which have become new targets for the criminals. the pathway is a fancy restaurant. six months ago the own choosing and his team were the victims of an armed robbery. as lorenzo general manager. fellow for the back rush up front you know. how you do it it's a riot. yeah on that day the restaurant was packed like it is tonight. the security cameras have recorded the whole scene. there were three robbers.
one guy came in and maybe a second attitudes and slater two guys came in behind it first and then the second guy came in that area telling me to go rounds the first day and he wanted to hear the register. right here go in the drawer then for a second put a gun to his head maybe go to the ground they got this is not a job now or what else. play in carries a gun but he chose not to use it on that night avoiding a bloodbath it's the threat of being shot or killed that's the it's not a wallet it's not a cellphone it's not money it's not stealing my car it's someone gets shot and there's no other option do you carry a gun to know it's a difficult issue though because i'm not for it but in a mill you like this worse there are so many dangerous people with guns it makes
sense for people those guns to protect themselves. in the united states the gun issue is a sensitive subject. are they responsible for the increasing number. in new orleans more and more people chose to arm themselves to. play. friend of forty years old former police officer. he doesn't leave the house without his arsenal and i have a main gun it just goes right here my waistband. and all the medical it has in it is really very simple it just has what we call a combat gauze this particular gauze has a static agent. and he in the not only saw they both have this wave opening feature which imagine my my pocket here but this little book as i
go to pull this out the pocket this little hook catches the inside of the pants it opens it automatically has a hole it out so i can i could defend myself from either side maybe a push against a wall and this side i'm not a big get this knife so i can get to this one or vice versa. like most people in new orleans brennan was traumatized by katrina. at the time he was still the police officer get to face chaos. it's as if you know right there's the mississippi river this is all part of the levee system there was a breach in a levee where one of the oil tanker barges hit it in with that there was some oil so it was really nasty down here. disaster. when you have adversity at the level that katrina was that's when those true call the start coming out. of family members to dallas to evacuate and when i
was coming back into the city in dallas texas i had in a p.t. units passing me leaving the city. many police officers never returned. and now we're you know we're very low in manpower dangerously low not only for the citizens but for the department themselves i mean these guys are you know we look we get more and more people shoot up police is just it's never seen more that than i've ever seen before. obsessed with. safety. he transformed his car into a real armory. i keep a lot of this stuff handy just in case again something crazy happens active shooter as a you know so carry permit also keep a rifle it's actually technically a pistol but i keep something that's a little bit bigger and i keep additional ammunition as well as a body armor medical equipment the stuff that i would simply need to see an active shooter at a school or something like that and then also just keep kind of general preparedness
stuff vehicle maintenance stuff tools things for spare flat tires a water fluids for the vehicle general maintenance stuff that you know probably everybody should have in their vehicle. after quitting the police brennan chose to open a gun shop. you can find everything here from an automatic gun to an a k forty seven. but in the red is there going oh oh how far is the range zero zero zero zero zero zero zero for let us know a little bit with the growing insecurity about brennan says mrs flourishing week it was like this especially considering that in louisiana arm sales are deregulator cool clothes you know if you anything all right you would say you have gone. and you carried with you you have it on you today and you're sure you're ok so you feel
endangered really. even if. you know. in this town the number of firearms is booming. their sales doubled the last ten years. but in new orleans. the man has found another solution the weapons to fight criminality. it's in the heart of the french quarter that live city tortures a forty year old millionaire. he made a fortune in the garbage disposal service. i'm proud of you know rap today the only good quote on. earth by. a million in.
his house had been burglarized several times so sydney decided to invest part of his fortune into the security of french quarter. he created a unique camp. in allows people to send real time information to the policeman of the neighborhood. you see something that says look suspicious prostitution drug dealing you see somebody getting rob you take the side and you can take a picture and send it and it goes directly here it's like having a police officer in your pocket. although once again this is a crime just came in over the radio and they say they sent a picture here you see suspicious person delphine governor nichols and they took a picture of him see him on the corner you see him on the ground they act like they're sleeping but they're they actually rob people when you walk. his idea was
born after his conflict with the mayor of new orleans who he publicly accused of being in active in front of the rise of criminality i tried to get a meeting with the mayor and he wouldn't meet with me so i made a thirty second commercial and i started putting it all over the t.v. calling the mayor out on the crime in the city the french quarter is under siege by criminal the problem to me it is only six blocks by thirteen. you may as well advised me to come in this equipment from the millionaire office to you know the violence in the city and every sane way to deal with garbage like. we should hold for the ministry for there was a real provocation. and so he didn't like it and he took offense to it he made millions and millions and millions of dollars off a garbage contract in the french quarter and maybe he should just to get some of that money and do it himself if he thinks it's so easy it's just not like the city decided to follow his advice and invested several hundred thousand dollars to create a french quarter taskforce
a unit that works directly with the zapper task force you download it and you're able to connect police do exactly this was something that was launched just days ago in tonight's businessman city tour today the young millionaire has become a star in the american media. you know who as you can see had way last gray white black and blue. this afternoon he has yet another t.v. interview. has become a reference in the fight against criminality. you know it's not just what people in jail or resting are way off it's that it has to we have to have programs the mayor the city the citizens work together. if we receive so my. should tension it's because his app is
a real success in his neighborhood criminality is down by forty five percent. to be in debt is to express your true self as an american and part of the western. culture card debt is by definition your identity your credit score is who you are and when you combine social media as are doing in china any time you step out of line if you spit on the subway your social media index is degraded and your cost of funds goes higher and you get deeper into the casino goulet. i played for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball
isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the shaper money kill you know their owners and spending two hundred twenty million on one player. it's an experience like no one else not to because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy great so will more chance with. the base he's going to. in two thousand and sixteen the panama papers show the world with a tax haven the secrets to trillion united states dollars passed through most. in the amount of time that we've been in panama papers exposure that's what it shows a lot of money it really is. journalism it's an act of journalism looking at things that people want to keep secret and asking why would they want to keep these things
secret. millions of. documents were examined. me all the people we basically have tried to get an advantage out of this sort of newspaper. and probably other politician which were. other politicians the media would point to find their targets such as the kings of morocco and saudi arabia the president of argentina several prime ministers. and russian president vladimir putin of course. oh my god i've had so i have sued so many newspapers for defamation some things don't just happen by chance it was very striking there were no more americans to go especially good ole lot of people from the brics countries specially brazil russia and china that their special project
reveals what was missed in the media coverage. of the panama chronicles. supporters of the arabian government hold a full stay of raw is to denounce the uprising that swept across the country and left at least twenty one people dead. however worrying the events of the last few days in iran may be they do not constitute per se the threat to international peace and security to the security council should not discuss the issues of any country towards human rights issues the un security council at america's request holds an emergency meeting over the situation in iran but sometimes think it's an internal issue for terror on. one person reportedly died on saturday as the saudi led coalition is apparently continuing its bombing campaign in yemen despite a humanity.
