I Don't Understand...

In the years before Hurricane Katrina, public housing complexes like the St. Bernard and Cooper were the worst places to live in the city of New Orleans. The drug trade and other vices went largely unchecked in these grim places, and violent crime was an everyday scenario. The storm forced the Housing Authority of New Orleans and HUD to shutter these structures, until an adequate plan was devised to either replace them, or even to do away with them. Now, after more than two years, the former tenants are speaking out in protest, demanding that leaders restore their abandoned units. These angry protests have come to assume a violent tone, as these people demand to return to their old way of life...Wow, I don't understand...God, help us.
