Ashton Way

I live in Cahokia which is pretty much East St. Louis. As far as I been here I have not seen tide locked up, a subway behind glass, or a testing truck. HOWEVER, this man is not off with the violent crimes. Just down the road from my house yesterday, there was a triple shooting, one dead at the scene, all of them were teenagers. So... Yeah you decide if Cahokia/East St Louis is the worst shithole or not.
