East Thieveland… the northern crossroad of Hope on the underground railroad, turned blue collar abandoned black suburb of the north coast of America’s “heartland”. Used to be Rockefeller’s estate in the 1800s. After the economic downturn around 1977 and the closing of U.S. steel mills (as jimmy carter opted for chinese steel for american auto factories), E.C. was then targeted by the CIA crack epidemic, which capitulated the city into a never ending death spiral who’s recovery seems bleak at best… this is were I was born and raised. This is why I created Thieveland… to show the world the results of socio-economic thievery in a corporate-banker ruled economy vs. the displaced/disadvantaged decendants of stolen cargo on stolen land of broken treaties.
