While i do think that the danger of living daily life in NOLA is, in general , overblown by people who live in places like Mandeville and Destrehan- i have long thought that it was possible for someone like Drew Brees to be a victim of a crime in the City that would then give NOLA a black eye on a national level... It never occurred to me that it might happen to Ms Gayle, though she presumably drives a super nice Benz like most of the coaches and Tom Benson drove... However, i do think that this literally could have happened in any large-ish city which has good and bad areas, so i really hope the pearl-clutching is kept at a minimum in re to this being any more a ‘New Orleans problem’ rather than an ‘America’ problem.

We’re still in phase 1 of the anti-carjacking plan.
Well, the good news is that it was all likely either caught on a traffic camera or one of those "crime cameras" with the blinding blinking red and blue lights. That I'm sure will all be taken down just as soon as Latoya gets around to it.

While this is a terrible and unfortunate situation, I must concur with the many unified sentiments already expressed. This type of crime is very run-of-the-mill for heavily populated areas. Not to excuse the unlawful activity, but I’d be a hypocrite to bemoan NO’s crime, when I know for a fact Baton Rouge, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas, etc. have these same occurrences. Hopefully they catch the bums who did this and prosecute them until they’re underneath the jail.

I’m glad Mrs. B is okay. Something like that could give even a young woman a heart attack.

Apparently she yelled at them to get out of her car. They then got out of her car, back into their own car, and drove away. So, it sounds like she was pretty in control. Which is amazing for anyone much less a person that age.

Say what?! Somebody get her in our defensive huddles so she can yell at the secondary to properly cover and tackle. Mrs. B is really a whole G. This story, if true, is awesome.🙌🏿💪🏿

As a NOLA car jacker you just have to have more situational awareness. You can't be jackin the owner of the Saints! The perp should've apologized and told her he'd just get the next one.
I kind of wonder if the car jackers didn't realize who it was and decided that it was a really bad idea.

That would be one good thing she does do if she does it.
