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 that nothing has been done to rehabilitate this neighborhood. i'd.
just ask tough. tough battle team up to its main. this is only one of about one hundred out of. that twenty thousand that's like. pretty. much but. for aaron there's a bend in areas where the reason for the increased crime rate. this is a. black neighborhood a high crime neighborhood become a crime in aware of drugs wherever you got drugs are. african-american people the flow speed or with the situation of the country roads. no food if you're not easy. if you now do. i land when
a situation yeah yeah you know you will go to the extreme the hungry people go to beach stream. 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 touristy area really is the french. every tourist from all around the world gathered a. lot of. access . and of course here jazz is everywhere. bars with dance floors and every.
day for the last. this neighborhood is 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. on another night a man attempts to kidnap a drunk girl. a man tries to stop him. but the aggressor points into seattle. the man begs for mercy. presser 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. by night 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 only choosing and his team were the victims of an armed robbery. as lorenzo general manager. fellow for the back russian 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 had two seconds later two guys came in behind him the first and then the
second guy came in sit very well or maybe go rounds the first day and he wanted to hear the register. right here in the drawer. for a second put a gun to his head made it go to the ground they got this is not a job now or would also. claim 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. 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. the only medical it has and it is really very simple it just has what we call a combat gauze this particular gauze has a static agent. unity in the not only soft 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 and opens it automatically as
a whole it out so i can i could defend myself from either side maybe a push against a wall and decide 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 and 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.d. 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 a 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 america 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 well 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 and really. you know. in this town
the number of firearms is booming. their sales doubled the last ten years. but in new orleans. a man has found another solution the weapons to fight criminality. it's in the heart of the french quarter that live city tour is 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. 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 and. it 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 dolfin in 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 cities the french quarter is under siege by criminal the problem can be it is only six blocks by thirteen. you may as well advised me to come in this climate from the millionaire office to you know the violence in the city and every sane way to deal with garbage like. we should hope for the misery 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 they decided to follow his advice and invested several hundred thousand dollars to create the french quarter task force a unit that works directly with 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. beautiful as you can see that 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 for arresting her it's not that fast we have to have programs the mayor the city the citizens work together. if we receive so much. it's because his app is a real success in his neighborhood criminality is down by forty five percent.
