Tulsa is a funny little place. Its unique. Tulsa does not fit into any specific class or stereotype. We have everything from hipsters to gang bangers, farmers to businessmen. There are many interesting things to do here. The music/concert scene is exploding, its hard to not go to every showing that is available. However, the estimated safety here isn't very good. It is ill advised to walk around at night by yourself. Take someone with you. With numbers, there is safety. Team up to go have fun out here!

I fear that if the Tulsa Police Department continue to do the wrong things rather than performing the (correct) sensible things to do... That my mother is going to progress in her mental illness along with her sexually transmitted disease and that she will suffer, also that my mother is going to be in pain and I will never be able to: help, love, or get to know her... I fear that everyone remaining in my immediate family is going to die a slow and painful death, and that I will be left alone in this oppressive world... Finally, my mother's neighbors are going through similar circumstances, if not worse... Things are getting extremely bad in Tulsa, Oklahoma and my worst fear is that no one is going to: listen, slow down, or fix these problems... For instance, how the court has several people in the same room and the judge only cares about what the individuals' public defenders have to say, rather than paying attention to the people in need of help... I also have many problems (grudges) that I am attempting to work through, with David L. Moss's Criminal Justice Center's Staff, along with John 3:16, Security Officers, Sheriff Officers, The Salvation Army, The Day Center, etcetera... I am very dissatisfied with the betrayal of Tulsan leaders, whom have completely shun my: family, neighborhood, and I, instead of assisting me to resolve these matters...

I am a student and have been living in Tulsa since 2015. The city is lovely. It's well taken care of and extremely easy to navigate. Though traffic is thick at times it has never been bad. I appreciate the side walks all over town for jogging and biking and the multiple Sprouts and Whole Foods make for great stops when shopping for healthy high quality foods. There art so many restaurants to fit nearly every taste and plenty of local coffee shops, Shades of Brown being my favorite. The only thing that bothers me concerning Tulsa is the constant road work, however it's usually very easy to detour. I really do love this city.
