    I want to love the place because it is where I was born and raised. Unfortunately there is a serious drug problem there and crime is a serious issue, and whoever isn't doing drugs is almost terrifyingly religious and there is so much hatred in that small town. Also, fair warning, they are not open to newcomers. You were either born there or you're an outsider. Especially if you come from the north.

    Like I said before, crime is a serious issue here. It's a very rural backwoods place so there isn't any street lighting. Occasionally you run into police, I've never had to call them for anything but I haven't heard anyone complain about them taking too long.
