I just read on another board that there is sec. 8 housing close to the Silverlake area in Pearland. Does anyone know if there's any truth to this? I know that the crime rate has increased in this area, so I'd like some clarification on this issue.

Based on what I've seen go down in the Super Wal Mart there in Silverlake, I wouldn't doubt for a second that what you saw in that other message board is true.

Section 8 is everywhere.

I'm just wondering where could those homes be? The homes in that area are not cheap. I agree with you on that SuperWalmart.....very trashy at times. I make an effort to stay clear of that store and shop at SuperTarget instead.

The section 8 homes are anywhere there is a rental house or apartment owned by a landlord willing to take section 8 payments. It doesn't matter if the places are HUD complexes like you see on OST & Scott St., or middle-class complexes and neighborhoods. Like I said, section 8 is everywhere.

Hello socialism.

Work harder so you can pay half of your income out in state/local/federal fees & taxes, enabling those who do not work to live at around the same level (debt free).

Middle class, taking it up the A(double-scribble).

Section 8 isn't the only thing that you have to look out for, Tax Credit Housing (both state & local) is the latest public/private ripoff scam that comes at the expense of middle class taxpayers and homeowners.

honeyinhouston - be careful at the supertarget as well - my hairstylist's pregnant sister was robbed at 10 a.m. in the parking lot as she was strapping her baby into his carseat. The guy had a gun & tried to push her into her car but she rolled up into a little ball which made it difficult - guess too much time was elasping and the guy ran off to a waiting vehicle. However, Pearland Police told her that someone matching the same description did abduct a 50-something year old man the day before at Walmart forcing him to empty his ATM. Just be careful.

Yes, I heard about this. I'm always cautious wherever I go. Thanks.

Yes, the harder I work the more I seem to pay out to someone not working to live just as well as I'm living. It seems so unfair. It pisses me off to know that some of these people are totally scamming the system. I can see this happening right in Pearland.
