Memphis Too, I'd Bet
This is something I imagine a lot of Memphians will recognise:
Experts said the trend in the city [New Orleans] that's home to the popular French Quarter exists for several reasons -- drugs, too few police, inexperienced prosecutors, and residents staying quiet because they fear retaliation.
They point to an experiment last year by university researchers in which police fired 700 blank rounds in a New Orleans neighborhood in a single afternoon.
No one called police to report the gunfire.
