Blytheville is a very small town where everybody knows everyone, it's friendly but also a dangers place to live depending on where you live and who you associate yourself with. Jobs are hard to come by and pay is still minimum wage but over all half the town is my family and i love it. The hospital can't treat gun wounds and are very very rude and the police force only targets African Americans and never have solve murders as well as we have a law that states any employer can fire you without reason. If I had the chance to do my life all over I would not live in Blytheville, AR and only come to visit my family.

This is my hometown where I’ve watched many people die and hear about bad things all the time. I’d like for the people to actually work together and be more connected and involved in saving the youth growing up here!
Blytheville is a fairly small town. Blytheville is also known for being a town with lots of crime. I think the reason so much crime is committed is because their is nothing her for our youth to do. So many students who have graduated, instead of taking advantage of the free tuition at the local community college they find there self going off to college in Little Rock, AR or Conway, AR because they want to find life.
