There are a lot of really nice things about St. Louis and it is full really good people. However, it has some major issues that cause a whole host of problems. The issues are primarily created by poverty and the crime that comes with it. Since the auto industry began abandoning St. Louis it has been in slow decline. Not terribly long ago, St. Louis was second only to Detroit in the number of vehicles built annually. There were problems before that but without the large numbers of good paying manufacturing jobs, those issues have been exacerbated. The issues are and were primarily poverty in the northern areas, both city and county. Bad political leadership in the 70s did major damage and has greatly harmed the region since.St. Louis isn’t worth stopping regardless of anything else!
In DC years ago I came home to see some hoodrats riding off on my roommate's 1959 Lambretta Li 150. He had ridden that thing across the country at 55 mph all the way to Arizona where a semi plowed him from behind driving into the sunset. Basically enough force to throw him off and out of the way.It was in the hood. The police wouldn’t even leave me alone until it was on the flat bed
Hahaha.Man you guys live around some dystopian shitholes. Haven't locked my house or cars for nearly 10 years.
