I moved away from Elkhart December of 2006 and I am SO glad that I did. Living there was a nightmare. I never saw this "good" side of town. I thought it was all pretty rotten. Sure there were some large homes along the dumpy river, but there were shacks right next to them too. I never understood that. The air pollution was off the charts. The crime was unbelievable. The corruption was ghastly, and the people were in general either hopeless, depressed, ignorant, uneducated, criminals, drugged out, stuck or angry. I remember several times where people would run up to our car and pound on the windows begging for any money we could spare. Random people would wait by my husband's and other people's cars after work to beg for money. Also, the police were a joke, I have personally seen them break the laws that they are supposed to enforce and not do anything about anything when you call them. At least four people were shot and killed outside my husband's place of work, we nearly got hit by a car walking around our neighborhood and witnessed first hand people either driving or parked doing drugs, and had some guy that ran up to my husband wanting to pick a fight with him (I think he was drugged). It was ridiculous there. It is NO place for a family or children. I on purpose did not get pregnant there because I could not bring a child into that place.
