Roger87 Posted July 3, 2015 Report Share Posted July 3, 2015 I am sure they do- a terrible indictment on the society that has been created there. Having travelled to over 50 countries I still find it shocking that such large swathes of US cities are like that. It goes unsaid- as if it is some type of normality. It definitely isn't in Australia or Asia or most of Europe. Did you visit some parts of East End London or some banlieues in northeast Paris? These zones are widely known for high levels of violence and poverty around Europe. They aren't exactly "better" places comparing to the poor neighbourns in Chicago and LA. And let's not forget the 2005 riots in France and 2011 riots in UK started in these places. Or how about Secondigliano in Naples, mostly known as the "most dangerous neighbourhood in Europe", which can compete in violence with similar marginal neighbourhoods of Mexico and Brazil alongside close Scampia. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
