Whoever thought public housing was a good idea...

... should have to live there. The 'unintended consequences' of forcing people whose only commonality is poverty, to live in a ghetto. 'City: Murder victim should have known ‘risks’ of public housing' (NYPost):

The family of a college student murdered at her East Harlem housing project doesn’t deserve a dime from the city — because she should have known the “risks” of being on the dangerous grounds, city lawyers claim in court papers.

“I can’t believe they’re saying she’s responsible for her murder,” Olivia Brown’s mother, Crystal, told The Post Friday.

“Everybody has a right to be safe in their home. Why wasn’t my daughter safe? Because we’re poor and live in public housing?”
