I was raised in Arlington my whole life and Arlington has got to be one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Arlington is far from being the bad place you guys are making it out to be. Look people, Arlington is getting WAY over populated, so if you don't like it here, leave. There are plenty of people that would lease, buy or rent wherever you are staying at. We got the Rangers, Hurricane harbor, Six flags, and the new cowboys stadium. ALL OF YOU WHO SAY ARLINGTON IS GOING DOWN HILL, DRIVE AROUND TODAY, AND PAY ATTENTION, WE ARE GROWING!
As soon as I can retire I will. I can't stand this hell hole! Nothing but a bunch of city slickers that want to raise taxes so they can be big shots.
God!!!! What a relief it will be to move back to the country!!!!!!!!!!

IN SCHOOL WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW SILLY SOME OF YOU SOUND ON YOUR COMMENTS.
IT'S NOT ABOUT COLOR OR RACE'S, GANGS COME FROM PEOPLE WANTING TO BE ACCEPTED, AND HOW CAN WE BE ACCEPTED WHEN ALL OF YOU ARE DOWNING US AND TELLING US THAT WE ARE NOTHING AND NEVER WILL BE.
OKAY SO JUST THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WROTE HERE FOR A MIN. AND SEE WHY WE REALLY HAVE VIOLENTS

Keep studying!!! That's you're way out.

i have lived in arl. since i was about 14. I moved here from houston....this place doesnt even begin to compare to houston. But i do understand where most of yall are coming from. i went to lamar hs and it was already bad i saw people bring poles to school and tier irons and beat eachother in the head with them. somwone brough a sword to school one day and tried to cut people woth it. and it did get alot worse when the new orleans came. everywhere got worse no matter how good the area you lived in was...for the most part. in school they were having fights with the people from lamar because they were from LA. then there were gangs from that and it really has just gone down hill. people may be trying to fit in but is it really that important to fit in so you go to gangs and violence.do you need to follow the herd and be a sheep. get a life and live your own. i am worried about my 1 year old daughter growing up here in these schools ...but where is there a place that is good anymore? i think teens these day need to have more stucture and a lot more harded disipline. they need to get a life. and try to be more responsible. this city is really going down hill and fast.

hey lilly i also go to lamar, if u read this reply or something maybe i know you....oh and the beef wasnt between people from N.O and L.A it was N.O people that came because the hurricane and people from texas...and not all 13 are from L.A mkl is from texas, but most of them dont know what 13 stands for and so the lil wannabe fakes decide to use 13 on their gangas, 13 stands for the 13th letter which is M and its used to represent SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Okay everyone, I'm from Chicago, and these little "gangs" here wouldn't last 5 minutes in Chicago. They think they are soooo bad but if they got dropped off somewhere like the wrong side of Chicago, 5 minutes, they would be dead. Im so tired of these little kids acting like gangs are okay and that they are no big deal. Trust me, the gang violence in "Agg Town" is not that serious.
well ive been in "chi-town"and they go hard but u just dont kno that much bout aggtown cause almost all my folks carry heat but they aint no bitches and to spit to u some knoledge aggtown gangs is deeper than u think CSB is 200 300 deep UTG is bout 1500 hun deep same wit BHD

It all depends on where you go and what you do. I go to Sam Houston and its not "ghetto" girls from arlington high school came to our school for student exchange and said that their school was more "ghetto". We have classy kids with manners and a few on the other hand no way! we are just like any other school just we get more fingers pointed at us for ant reason. Quit pointing fingers if you dont like arlington get out.We have nice places here and yes it does get scary just like any other places gangs are getting bad but what can we do? You cant live in fear forever

the problem with criminals is and always will be, in most cases, parenting issues. what i see in this city and in my experience in general is an over population situation. incapable parents having way too many babies or welfare babies as some say. impoverished women who cant keep their legs closed and impoverished men that cant wait to get their dicks wet. it is criminal. it is child abuse. there should be a law in this country that prohibits a family from having more than two kids. our infrastructure is not able to sustain this many people and thus the criminal mind presents itself because jobs are unavailable too everyone. i understand what makes a criminal. the ingredients are almost always the same. but i HATE criminals. if you are a criminal. a gang-star, a dog fighter, a murderer, a rapist, a greedy corporate CEO, or any other aspect of the criminal mindset, please take your own life. please commit suicide. please kill yourself because not more than about five people will ever miss your sorry ass. and yes, if i had to kill and steal in order to make a life for myself, i would without doubt or hesitation, sacrifice myself for the benefit of humanity. i am no hypocrite. i live in south arlington and ive been saying just over the past couple of years that this area is getting worse. lived here my entire life and never seen it as bad as it is now. its either fight to the death to protect yourself, friends, family, and property or move. and since most of us in this city have something to live for, i predict that within twenty years arlington will be a ghetto because all of us will have left the city to the desperate welfare babies and their incapable owners.

I generally don't care too much about gangs as they are usually just killing each other and not specifically targetting innocent bystanders. However, I take martial arts classes and have a concealed handgun license. So hopefully if the time ever comes, I'll be able to defend myself and my family.
No martial arts classes but I do have a concealed handgun license and I WILL DEFEND MYSELF. You can count on it.

There used to be so much crime and mischief in my area in east arlington, until one family moved away and the teens of another turned 18 and went to jail. All is quite now.

Guess what I've seen is that crappy adults have crappy kids who make trouble and I am glad to see the whole lot of them go on with their lives, some of which are prison and to new areas.

All is good in my area after about 10 years of pure hell, coming from 2 very dysfuctional families.

It'll sell fastttttttttttt when it is appealing to the people in the market area.
