Itasca County Reviews

2 reviews
The majority of this town is all about committing crimes and always trying to pull a fast one so to speak. A lot of the town is already on drugs which I have witnessed many times to encourage people to steal and commit even worse crimes. Itasca county has the most undercover and regular cop cars, yet it is one of the smallest areas based on population. You do the math.

The drug problem in this area destroyed everything and everyone. Everyone that I knew from school is either dead or so dependent on drugs that they don't even know themselves anymore. I moved away to start my life over and to go to school for what I've always wanted to do. I am a programmer and I have been since moving away from this hell hole.
