...Both killer and cop were black. Half a mile away, the shooter had killed another man at a party. New Orleans " murder rate is consistently about seven times the national average, and since 1985, it has led the nation in murders for 12 different years. In 2014, only 121 people have been killed through October 15th, however, so that's a considerable dip from the all-time high of 424 in 1994.

Jim and James bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and ability to congressional relations, and we are pleased to have them on board."
