If you have been here your whole life, what are you comparing it too?I lived in arlington my whole life and it is not that bad!!!!! I even went to SAM HOUSTON HIGH SCHOOL last year and i actually think LAMAR has worst gangs than SAM so all you people need to stop hateing!!!! Any place you go there is going to be gangs and violence so dont be pointing fingers at the school areas or anything like that!
7 more years and I get to retire at age 55 with a full pension and health insurance. I'll be glad to leave and leave behind all the stupidity of the area and its teens who seem to think they run the city. I'm going to live somewhere teenagers can't afford to live... teens with grandparents who are smart enough to not let them move in with them.
Let me tell you this area is just too culturally diverse and thats why there is so much trouble ( besides there being too many teenagers, most of which are lazy and good for nothing ).
High schools have to have a full time police officer or two for the drama.
You would be really surprised at all the nice places to live, this isn't one of them....
I'm only here for work and as soon as I can retire.... I'm out of here and this crazy area filled with shopping and resturants for people who have no imagination or work ethic which may explain why all the good paying jobs with any responsibility where things have to be done right....
have to go out of state and bring people here to do the job. No one born and raised here can seem to qualify to be hired and do a good job.
If mall walking and goofing off, many in this area would have a lifetime job.
