Worst place I have ever, horrible place to live

If I could give it negative stars I would. Worst place I have ever lived..we moved away as fast as we could, a year was far too long. The highest crime rate I have ever been in, daily break ins, burglaries, home invasions,'s really bad. High sex offenders, look it's horrible. The most unsafest I have ever felt in my life, and I felt safer in Oakland, bad neighborhoods of LA and San Francisco. People that have lived here for a long time are delusional, and actually defend the place. It comes down to ignorance, lack of education, lack of being outside the area and never living in other areas. No real grocery stores, restaurants, entertainment, no jobs, education, hospitals..basically anything a human needs to survive...I would rather die than live here again... stay as far away from here as possible. I'm not exaggerating..and if you end up moving here, good luck with that.
