New Orleans crime spilling over to surrounding areas.

Crime: The sheriff doesn't pull any punches as you are going to see why the surrounding areas wanted nothing to do with New Orleans people.

SLIDELL, LA. - Two adults and two teens were killed in a suspected drug-related shooting at a trailer park outside this small city on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain, and the sheriff said he fears crime may be spilling over from New Orleans. Sheriff Jack Strain said two people are thought to have been involved in the shootings. The killings echoed the June 17 slayings of five teens on a New Orleans street corner, although there is no indication the incidents were related. After those shootings, 300 National Guard members and 60 state police were sent to beef up New Orleans patrols. Strain said the added patrols are likely contributing to crime in surrounding areas. "If you send 500 armed men into a zoo, the animals are going to crawl out of the cage," Strain said in an interview.
