Hanover Park was always a quiet family based bedroom community just Northwest of Chicago. That was until politicians forced this village to accept Chicago’s displaced inhabitants of Cabrini Green and other ghetto dwellings. The culprit is so-called Section 8 Housing that provides free or nearly free rent for those who refuse to go to school or work.
Murder has spiked in this village of less than 40,000 people to at least one per day.
What’s ironic is the people who began this community did it to escape Chicago’s crime and those minority groups that love to wallow in their own blood. These working middle class folks wanted a safe place to educate and raise their children.
I visited the posh suburb of Barrington Hills recently only to see lots of Chicago style ghetto cars in grocery store parking lots and African Americans using their government provided free money cards to pay for their purchases.
The murders, home invasions, kidnappings, sex assaults and drug culture of Chicago’s ghettos are now being shoved down the throats of those who once thought they were safe from that kind of a menace. Now it appears that the culture of violence is spreading like a vile disease in a rapidly changing community.
Those once valuable Barrington Hills homes will be going the way of Chicago’s once beautiful Garfield Park mansions in the 1950’s. Within a decade they were uninhabitable trashed out structures.
It looks like the Ku Klux Klan could surface once again under these fertle conditions.
