Is BR becoming more violent or is it perception?

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Is Baton Rouge getting more violent, or is that just the perception? We'll let you hear what one criminologist has to say. Would New Orleans or Lexington see much violence after Kentucky's big win in the National Championship? Many Wildcat fans are still celebrating this morning as Big Blue wins their first title since 1998 and the SEC takes home another championship. There is more rain for some areas, which means wet roadways. Be careful while driving. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
