I'm amazed...I've never seen a place like Logansport where red necks run rampant and get away with it.
I saw one man tail gated for several blocks, even though it was a one way street with 3 lanes and very lite traffic...I stopped when they stopped and the red neck tail gater in the pick up truck cursed and made threats of physcal harm to the other driver...right in front of the city building where the police department is located. The cops were called...but the red neck was let go....so if you are into road rage move to Logansport, they let you get away with it.
I saw a 17 year old boy have a verbal dispute with his father....the father sucker punched the boy in the stomach...putting the boy on his knees! Again I saw police cars arrive...no one went to jail!
I saw another teen boy sitting in his car eating burgers & fries when some red neck 50ish guy began yelling and cursing at him for a pile of ashes and cig butts on the ground by the boy's car...the boy said he had just parked there minutes ago and that he didn't smoke and the pile wasn't his. The man called the boy a liar...among other things....no police this time, the kid left.
Logansport has churches and bars on nearly every street; half the people I saw walking around were well over-weight or had serious dental problems. I spoke to several, some seemed afraid of a stranger saying hello...other quickly wanted to tell me how awful their life is on disability and how hard it is to pay bills.
I'm disabled but from California...I guess the income is a lot different. My 19 year old works part time for 7.85 and hour plus he makes about 30 dollars in tips a night as a server. I was told the average wage in Logansport was six bucks an hour.
I would love to see a study on what percentage of the population has been arrested in the last 20 years, its a small town of less than 17,000 people with a city police force of 55 officers...that alone says a lot.
The main streets through town look very nice, but turn off into the side streets and not only are the streets bad but the houses are falling apart and junk cars sit everywhere. I counted over 90 homes that had serious roof damage and when I asked if there had been a storm everyone said no.
One friendly older man told me that in the mid 90's several factories closed their doors, since then the only new jobs have been a hog processing plant that employs about 2300 people and over half of those workers are hispanics that moved into the city starting around 1994.
I saw one city park, on wheatland avenue, that has a large flood wall to protect it from the eel river...small children, and I do mean toddlers, walking around the park all alone, no adult in sight. Across the street a house with several rose bushes and children pulling the roses and throwing them on the ground...this speaks so much of what typical life would be like in this town.
Sad sad sad sad. I would so love to see cnn do a spot light series on the people of this town, a mental hospital is near the city...I suspect the city population are former patients.

Who are you to call everyone in this town trash and red necks. There are a LOT of good down home people here who don't have to have a signature on a dotted line to make sure they are gonna get paid all it takes is your word and a hand shake. Just because this is a poor town does not mean that poor people are bad. You need to take your butt back to California and sweep that porch before you try to sweep ours. Go and complain about the drugs, gangs violence, children being killed, rapes murders and so on. OH I am sorry you can't because you would proble get your butt shot. But say that to us RED NECKS and we will turn the other cheek. Because for most of us that is how we were raised. We don't have to put down people or fight to make our point. We are a strong community that has faced ALOT of hard times but we are hanging in there. How about you tell us how well all the murdered people in California hung in there. Oh by the way lets compare crime rates. I think I will stick with my red necked community. By the way my brother in law is a cop here in town and a damn good one at that. I promise you if there is a case of child abuse that is validated the person will go to jail. And for the old man who yelled at the boy for the cigarettes well if he had the right boy or not we don't know but I praise him for taking pride in our town and trying to clean it up. So how bout you think before you speak. Cuz I can tell you WE ARE 99% GREAT People (you always have a few bad apples) and with the way you trash talk you better move to Logansport Before you get your butt shot in California. HAVE A GREAT DAY and A GREAT LIFE (by the way you shouldn't move to Logansport we don't need another bad apple)
GREAT JOB!

Obviously the people who are badmouthing Logansport haven't been here in a long time. I am now, and always have been, a resident of Logansport.

The city is not the same as it was 25 years ago, but that can be said of any community. Our pluses certainly far outweigh the negatives.

Some of the comments I've read here are simply not true. Sounds like a peson with an axe to grind and a wild imagination.

Certainly there are imporvements that can be made here. Economic areas are at the front, but we're working on that. If you're looking for a big city environment this is not the place for you. But, if you're looking for a small city with great educational factilities, easy access to many large communities and universities close by, then Logansport is the place for you.

There are rednecks in Logansport. There are hispancis in Logansport. There are all kinds of people in Logansport. That's what makes it interesting. How many small communities have such diversity.

You could do a heck of a lot worse somwhere else.

What you have written here as facts are very blunty a gross figment of your over-active imagination. It sounds like a sick script for a fictional movie about a fictional community. Nothing you say in this post is true. NOTHING. Anyone who believes it just simply does not know any better or just wants to believe the worst. Sully, what's your real name? I know a few people who would like to meet you.

it sounds like some people in Logansport want to run Sully out of town and back to California to make a movie.

I'm sure with his imagination it'll be about some hick town with everyone running around doing nothing but stupid things. He can call the town Logansport, Lafayette, Fort Wayne or whatever. But from his posts it'll definitely be fiction, and probably won't be funny.

Sounds like he's trying for another remake of Dukes of Hazzard - but he's got the wrong town and he'll have to a a lot better research - since his seems to be imagination gone wild. Let's get some common sense back ino this forum.
