Escaping crime ridden Chicago

The Parks' exit and growing instability around their block go to the core of what is crushing South Shore and other once-stable neighborhoods on the city's South and West Sides — an exodus of middle-class African-American families seeking safe neighborhoods and job opportunities.This population loss — 181,000 black residents between 2000 and 2010 — is tearing at the financial underpinnings and the social fabric of the entire city, experts say."If a neighborhood like South Shore can't fly ... something is terribly amiss" said Beryl Satter, a history professor at Rutgers University-Newark. "It's on the lake, it has great transportation, beautiful housing stock, a long history as a middle- and upper-class neighborhood. ... It should be like Evanston."

County welfare agent fill cities with unparented, welfare kids.  The neighborhood gets taken over like Lord of the Flies
