Close To Home
While NOMB was trying to rally the troops (20 Georgia Tech students)to work on a house in the 900 block of N. Prieur yesterday morning, this was going on.
An NOPD officer was shot in the hand Monday morning while investigating a burglary at a Treme resource center.
Since this whole action was less than two blocks away, you can imagine the visitors curiosity at the 20 tactical cop cars swarming our street.
"just don't leave the property," we tell them.
All in all, the nonsense delayed work for almost 2 hours. The man driving the truck that deposited our construction dumpster said," Don't worry, when I saw the address on my worksheet, I brought my pistol."
