The gang infested Oak Temple ghetto

By the 1990’s Oak Temple was one of the most violent ghettos in the country. Drug wars and gun crime were the day to day. Theft and assaults a norm. Whilst other ghettos in the Kings Valley/Imperial City conurbation were more run down or decayed, the Oak Temple was by far the most violent and gang infested. This was partially due to the fact that so many gangsters and poor citizens in the Valley’s other cities and neighbourhoods were re-housed here. Many slum dwellers from the notorious East Grands, Mulford Lots and Near South East-side slums of Imperial City Central were relocated to Oak Temple. Slum dwellers from the pits neighbourhood south of University Village were also housed here. This relocation of various communities into the packed Oak Temple contributed to the gang disputes, as mobs formed in previous communities tried to re-establish themselves in Oak Temple, only to find fierce competition from other older mobs and newly forming gangs.

Gang neighbourhood in Centre Oaks just north of the Centre Oaks Houses. Police have been ordered not to enter this section amongst others in Oak Temple. Whilst this has reduced gang on police shootings and civil unrest due to aggressive and irratic law enforcement, this has allowed the criminal gangs to establish their own violent marshal-law. Neighbourhood disputes, often the most trivial in nature, often end in bloodshed and sorrow for the community.

Poor planning means the railway line splits the John Oaks Secondary School from the concrete football pitch. Access requires pupils to cross the lines at the crossing on the maine road, which is time consuming and partially dangerous. Measures to improve pedestrian connectivity to the ground is under internal consultation in the Oak Temple Council's Planning Department.
