well who wants to live in a gang land drug selling killing field??

I grew up on the south side of Chicago, roseland area. drove by there last month I did not recognize the war zone I used to call home.

Burned out boarded up homes store fronts, garbage every where, drove past the home I grew up in and the more recent residents ripped the concrete porch off the house??

Yes they were small homes on small lots but there used to be grass, flowers, trees SIGNS OF LIFE.

Better wake up Chicago you are becoming a second class Detroit all burned out no middle class actually, NO CLASS AT ALL.

The residents of the south side should be ashamed of them selves and what they have done to a really nice part of town.
