Reporters bust the myth that former CHA residents causing havoc in Lafayette, IN.

Lafayette, Indiana lies two hours south of Chicago. For well over a decade, there has been a pervading myth that folks-particularly former CHA residents-have transplanted themselves from Chicago to Lafayette, and brought the crime and the social problems of their old neighborhoods with them. Two reporters for the Lafayette Journal & Courier set out to find the reasons behind the myth, and what data-if any-there is to back it up. Photo Courtesy of Facebook
