its true! you can't make this stuff up so stay away from fort smith until the mess is corrected! not a good place to find a job, very high crime, severe drug problems, poor city leadership, high taxes, lots of potholes in the streets, lots of homeless people, and definitely a city in decline!

A friend of mine told me about FS being in an article about worst places to live. A few Google searches lead me here and I must say I have really enjoyed the comments. Most are spot on truthful assessments by real people. The ones that aren't were most likely written by rich people who will be damned if any fun is had or progress made in their town before they die and leave they're money to there snob kids or snob church. I would really like to give a genuine assessment of what its like to live here so people don't make the mistake of moving here, but its hard not to be sarcastic at every turn. Simply put, this place will break you. There are no jobs. You can break your back in factory as a temp for years or you can go into retail or sales unless you know someone. And I mean really know someone. Those are your choices. Older people take lots of jobs because they have to in order to survive. Entertainment and fun aren't actually words here. They don't exist. The only musical entertainment you're likely to see is on Sunday morning. I attend church with the hypocrits and Im ashamed to say if your not rich or white you shouldn't come to any church on the southside. I get more motivation from news about the Pope than I do on Sunday/Wednesday and Im not even catholic. This place is sick and dying. Drugs are rampant. Im not talking about pot. Im talking about meth and crack. The police are a militia force without oversight. Slightly worse than the rest of the country I assure you. Education is only found in a few well run schools out in the country or at the local private powerhouse. I believe someone said Moffett was a better place to live and they may have been sarcastic but even poor Moffett has a better school. My wife and I have decided to move even though we both have decent jobs. I cannot in good conscience raise my children in such a backward place. We are lucky that her job transfers because as some have previously stated, you can definitely get "stuck" here. Do not make the mistake of moving here.

"Betty", you should be ashamed of yourself.

The last time I visited Fort Smith I got raped by all the Asian, Mexican, and Negro gangs.
Actually the Mexican rapists were the best rapists because did spend some time on actual foreplay before they buggered me in all my holes.
As far as the Negro rapists, they were clumsy and that entire BS story about them having big wangs is way off. Most of them couldn’t get it up when it came their time. What a letdown!
The Asians were fast and furious and an hour later I wanted to be raped again.
As far as getting raped by straight white males, that probably won’t happen because they are mostly into marriage and trying to build a family. What a waste!
You should be ashamed of yourself for making such stupid, racist, sexist comments. Shame on you!

I am sad to say that I have read all these comments from beginning to end! I am even more sad, no, frightened, that my family and I might be moving there!! I have no idea what to expect other than the horrible things I have read. And, it isn't helpful that there is absolutely no other source where I can find genuine and truthful information on this place. I have no experience living in the south or any state remotely close to Arkansas! I am not a Christian, and not White, so I don't know what the hell my family and I are in store for!
