Shame on Slidell Louisiana!

I am having a hard time with this one... did you all hear about the woman who was invited to a KKK initiation ritual in Louisiana and then shot when she tried to leave? Its horrible. The woman was from Oklahoma, but attended this ritual and then decided to leave. Heres the story: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,450345,00.html (sorry, blogger isnt being friendly, I cant create a link, you will have to copy & paste).

To be fair here, maybe she was journalists looking for a story and then tried to leave, and then was shot? Maybe she got a bit morals before the rituals took place and figured NO GOOD DECENT HUMAN would partake in such acts and tried to leave.

Either way, shes dead. So, now the KKK doesnt discriminate anymore either? Now they kill their own too?


To sum up the city of Slidell, I found these stats (courtesy of http://www.city-data.com/city/Slidell-Louisiana.html)

Races in Slidell:

White Non-Hispanic (81.2%)
Black (13.6%)
Hispanic (2.7%)
Two or more races (1.4%)
American Indian (1.0%)
Other race (0.6%)

Get this stat: "According to our research there were 22 registered sex offenders living in Slidell, Louisiana in early 2007."

Um.. .hello... ?


Population in July 2007: 27,185. Population change since 2000: +6.0%

Males: 13,028 (47.9%)
Females: 14,157 (52.1%)

Median resident age: 37.0 years
Louisiana median age: 34.0 years


I hope the 8 people whom were arrested get their photos slathered across the media and I hope they get the Apache treatment. I just find it hard to have sympathy for any member of the KKK... I somehow dont think they partake in good decent community service. I see them as being very one-sided in their thoughts.

It still baffles me how these "cults" or groups can still exist. It baffles me that in today's world, we still have so many stupid and ignorant thinking minded people.

For my disclosure statement, I am NOT saying everyone in Slidell is in the KKK or behaves in such a way that one would associate them into such group. I am merely sprouting off some statistics in order to enlighten us on the region which was highlighted, if you will, in the media due to a dumbass person!

I live in Slidell and this place isn't even like that. That crime happened like 10 miles north of Slidell in an area called Bush. They were part of a unorganized group that called themselves the KKK. "It still baffles me how these "cults" or groups can still exist." THEY DONT. This was a freak accident that NEVER happens here.

"According to our research there were 22 registered sex offenders living in Slidell, Louisiana in early 2007." According to the same website that you used, "The number of registered sex offenders compared to the number of residents in this city is smaller than the state average." That is saying that that number of sex offenders is less than the state average.

And also, why not bring up some good things about Slidell from that site: Unemployment in September 2007:
Slidell:0.0%
Louisiana:4.4%
O% unemployment rate!

And by the way, "Anonymous," what you said is like me telling you that I hope your hometown will be used for a nuclear bomb test site.

So basically Nathaniel, you are saying the report is incorrect?

Cults do exist. It may have been a freak accident to have happened that day, that town, etc... but they exist.. maybe they just wandered to the town.

As for the town being incorrect, I apologize, but I was just going on what the media had reported... if you bothered to look at the link you would have seen that it reported that it occured in Slidell, not Bush... but thank you kindly for correcting it.

Good points on the stats, but no, I didnt add all the "good points" i figured everyone assumes with the bad and ugly comes the good and pretty too...

Thanks for your input.

nathaniel, i'm sure you'll find that "anonymous" is referring to the kkk wiping themselves out, not the non-kkk residents of slidell.
