i was inspired by a fark'd article in the LA Times (middle link) to find newer and older examples of social decay and the rise of gang violence in urban areas, as sort of a timeline illustration.

sydney, australia, ~10 years in

los angeles, california, ~30 years in

paris, france, ~50 years in

the first and last are long, but worth the read if you've got about half an hour for all three. the third was full of things i'd never expect to happen in a "socialist" country. makes me wonder if the true intent behind any given country's "living document" ever makes it past about 100 years...
