Unfortunately, the police in this area do not do a lot of work. When one of my friends got stabbed, all her attacker got was probation. There are tons of drugs in this area that the police tend to do nothing about. It's sad really. I am moving away soon and I am very happy.

Everyone in this area usually stays here once they leave high school. If they do leave then eventually everyone comes back.
I am not super political but locally I do think our area is doing okay with our representatives. I honestly think that they are doing a decent job with our area.
