Default I love LA ( Boyz N the Hood)

They call it America the beautiful and for many people it is but for a lot of the population it's not quite the glossy photos that you see in the holiday mags. Today I was passing through South Central Los Angeles doing some business, just thought I'd post some piccies for any people surfing in the UK that go on about the crime and chavs.
You can't really appreciate the actual 3rd world poverty from these photos, you have to be actually in the sweaty stiflingly hot, smoggy areas and hear the sirens. It's real and palpable and very scary how some people live in the richest country on earth :scared:

It certainly looks poor, and dirty, and since it's South Central it's got a reputation for violence...

...but is Terrier really wrong? Is it that much worse than areas of severe poverty in the UK?

Or Camden or North Philly or South London. Bognor is probably OK though.
