    SLUMlords are a big problem. It's awful, since the market tanked there are a lot of people out there buying cheap properties fixing them up a little and renting them out to anyone and it is happening at an alarming rate. Within the last year there were 3 properties bought on my block and rented out. One of the properties has been rented out to what seems to be 3 families with kids who sit on the front porch all day smoking weed and destroying the property. Its terrible that these people feel no remorse for playing a part in ruining a community. Please if you see this happening go after these SLUMlords and send them a message that it will not be tolerated on your block.

    While many of these programs are well intended and do some good, they are very damaging to some demographics, particularly the uneducated and unskilled. Everything from welfare to section 8 and yes even SNAP basically pays people to stay uneducated, unskilled, and poor. It's no surprise that the kids born into such an environment end up like the ones you just described.
