Police here are very crooked and bend to the will of anyone with a big pocketbook or political or social pull. They gossip over lunch at Taco Bell about who's dating who and who got fat and who is on drugs. They talk about all the ways they try to sneak up on unsuspecting citizens and write as many citations as possible while also ignoring obvious violations and safety concerns. The list on why we need a better police force could go on forever.
I've lived in this town since birth and I can honestly say that I like it here but I don't love it. It's a small town where everyone knows everyone and gossip is a must for all the old-timers, city officials, and those with nothing better to do. The other half of the population are blue collar workers and generally don't have time for anything but work. If I had a choice I probably would move out of this town by stay in Indiana because my family is here and family is extremely important to me. I would never want to raise children in this town because there isn't much to do here and you can't go very far in life. I've seen too many high school grads jump right into the workforce and not further their education because they cannot afford it or because hard work is all they know.
