. its all fine and dandy when you are single, or a teenager looking to get into trouble. i mean i was a pretty good kid other than skipping class once in a while, and partied a little bit, but trouble is always just around the corner and not hard to find. once we had kids i realized i don't want my kids growing up there, just because no matter how good a kid you raise, temptation and peer pressure will always be there waiting for them to slip up. the only way you can make sure your kids don't get involved in gangs or drugs would be to be a hard *** on them and that's not the kind of parent most of us want to be.

HOT and i mean melting hot
Bad air quality
Economy is terrible, huge unemployment rate
Gangs, mostly wannabes but still trouble
Drugs, meth in almost everywhere
Schools are terrible, class sizes too large, i didnt realize my kids were behind until moving to another state
