This is absolutely, painfully hilarious! Sad, and painfully hilarious! I guess it all makes sense now; the movie stunk, which I think most of us can agree on.

Courtesy of the project's website, the short story goes... Louisiana is the murder capital of the United States. For the last decade, statistics have shown murder rates four to six times higher than the national average. Eighty percent of the victims are black males, mostly in their teenage years.

New Orleans government, law enforcement, community leaders, and well-intentioned citizens cannot agree on a prognosis or a solution to this situation. Wherever a disagreement is escalating into violence, an execution is being planned, or a victim is taking his last breath, it is more than likely a youth is witnessing or carrying out these actions.
