It mostly okay, although there's nothing much to do. Many incidents with drugs and incest murders. The school's teach you something but I've had to jump through hoops in order for them to give me basic treatment. Depending on where you live you have a chance of getting shot especially if your a minority, but the local McDonald just got an upgrade which is nice
