    It is a racist, sexist, homophobic little town. It's a sleepy place that seems to be trying to be stuck in the 1950's, bringing with it social problems. Life was painful there growing up with a different religion, also. The crime rate is obnoxiously high for a quiet rural area. Also, practically nothing is open there anymore except vape stores, Walmart, and fast food. The mall is depressing and almost entirely closed. The social atmosphere and pace of life was definitely not a fit for me. I want to be able to walk places, have things to do, and overall live in a more interesting, diverse, and accepting place.

    A small rural town with nothing to do and no upsides should at least be safe, but it has an obnoxiously high crime rate. I job shadowed at the police department once, and the computers were far out of date, they appeared to have never solved a homicide, and just in general were not very effective. Also, the sheriff when I lived there that we would have to call instead of the police because we were outside "city" limits, was named one of the 10 worst bosses in America a few years back due to a sexual harassment case that cost Iredell county $475,000.

    When manufacturing went out in 2008, so did any hope of growth. Still an economically depressed area. Thankfully, there are areas of good employment within 50 miles of here.
