The article discusses homicide and the law and order situation in New Orleans, Louisiana. Two murders, one of a spectator during Carnival, the other of a regular at the Jazz Fest on his way home, have shaken the city. There have been many other homicides, but those incidents, in which the victims were innocently taking part in the city's celebrations, underscore just how bad things have gotten. Most murders result from drug dealings or domestic violence: those are tragic in their own way, but at least they only affect their participants. The Jazz Fest victim was a white man who was shot after an attempted robbery.
