I had seen someone make a statement that West Helena wasn't a bad town. This person was obviously misinformed. The crime data shows Helena being in the 98 percentile for worst town in the nation and 100% for worst in Arkansas. I compared them to Fort Smith which is has 10 times the amount of people and there is a higher amount of crimes by number not ratio occurring in Helena. It must be a real shit hole.

Thanks for bringing that to our attention because we really care. There must be someone from Helena that you're hating on or jealous of Ms. Coco Butter

Back in the 60's, before Mowhawk Rubber closed their tire manufacturing, it was a great booming town. When Mohawk left and went to Mississippi, West Helena became almost a ghost town. Shame.

West Helena is a predominately black town run by blacks that don't know what a city budget is,theft, fraud, low test scores,uneducated labor force(if one even exists). The biggest industry there is the government sending out welfare,food stamps, housing assistance, utility payments etc. It truly has become a third world country-shacks and crime.

I hope azzkikr will stay there longer than one day and get this town cleaned up and moving forward.

Where is it worse? someone else is wanting me to come to Pine Bluff. I'm damn good, but I can't be two places at once.

Come on to Helena first- we can start here and then go down to Pine Bluff and really clean house and put those thugs out. I'm excited because I feel help is on the way. Might need you down in Dermott later this summer, its getting restless- put em down on the ground man.

Its a shithole. Lived there for two years. Anyone who complains about bateville has never lived there. Arkansas should let Mississippi have the place

A lot of chucking goes on there. Its really an Arkansas version of the undeveloped third world. Batesville and Helena are equals in most respects.

I moved to west helena from california. And it's not a bad place. Theres bad people who live here. Politicians are underhanded and our justice system is rigged. People care more about their status and bank accounts than the twin cities. So don't fault everyone as a whole...fault the elected officials who half ass their jobs and cash in bonus checks. Teachers who have degrees but cannot pronounce words correctly misinform the future generation so it is an ongoing cycle. To judge this place you have to experience it...live it. Yes, it is a predominantly black town- with a history of racial tensions. Anytime any major business wants to set up shop the chamber of commerce says no..so before you judge the residents research the driving force behind these "Twin Cities".

Kimberly Harper a former director of Main Street Batesville is from there. If you now her,that should give you a good indication of how bad the town is or was. She is a low life druggie pos.
