IF YOU HAVE TEENAGE DAUTHERS,OR YOU A SINGLE WOMAN,DONT MOVE ANYWHERE IN RUTHERFORD COUNTY,THE SHERIFFS DEPT IS CORRUPT AS HELL,THE DEPUTIES ARE ALLOWED BY LAW THERE TO BIND A WOMAN IN PREP TO RAPE HER,IF THE POLICE PULL OVER A FEMALE,AND THE OFFICER HAS INTENT ON RAPING YOU,YOU CANNOT RESIST BEING BOUND AND RAPE,UNDER THERE LAW,YOU MUST COMPLY WITH HIS DEMANDS TO BIND YOU,THIS IS INSANE,BUT TRUE,STAY AWAY FROM RUTHERFORD COUNTY..

I've been in boro for 9 years. It used to be ok. Now its just overcrowded and getting mean. Alot of crime goes unreported because town officials don't want to scare people away. Its almost everyday you hear sirens and see something on the news about mboro. And it will not get better. Home breakins are happening more around here. That how it is. When a town grows,so do the problems(crime) we are trying to move asap. Take a day and drive the surrounding areas of Nashville and you will find a much better,quieter,safer place to live.

<quoted text>Murfreesboro is very congested and absolutely no planning when it comes to new housing, schools, etc. I would suggest the Smyrna area, I have lived there for 20 years now and love it. I work in Murfreesboro and thank God every day I don't live there! Traffic flow from Smyrna to M'boro is great too, everyone else is going north to Nashville while you will be going south.
I agree with you. You gave great advice, hope she takes it.

Murfreesboro is an awesome place to live. If you check Forbes.com you will see that Murfreesboro ranked #1 in the nation for the fastest growing city and check the rank for the "one of the best cities to live in". Come on down, you and your family will be fine. There are sex offenders everywhere, so don't judge or plant in your mind that "The Boro" is a bad place to live.

If you move there stay away from Saint Andrews Dr. apartments and Tennessee Park apartments on Mercury Blvd. The 37 year old pig that allegedly raped my 11 year old Grandaughter (for 4 years)lives there! He claims to be a Christian but never attended Church(in New York) until he moved there 5 years ago. He is a master manipulator he not only groomed this innocent little 66 lb. child, he also groomed the members of the church to fund all of his bail ($15,000)his attorney fees (3 of them)and all of his personal bills as well! Allowing him to not have to work for nearly a year after his arrest. My Grandaughter goes to this Church as well and she had to have a court appointed attorney imagine that! I would assume that this Church (House Of God) would put their money to better use than a child rapist. From what I have been told is that the church would rather see him walk than the church looking bad because one of their members was quilty of such a crime. The Church, Judges, and attorneys may try to get him off but I am very confident that the good citizens of Murfreesboro that are chosen for Jury duty will convict him of the crime that he commited in their city! O did I mention that the Judge is a Decon of a Church in Murfreesboro!

I personally do not like Murfreesboro. It's nasty and congested. It is a college town and not only are there sex offenders there (which they live everywhere by the way) but also sexual predators pouncing on young, innocent college kids and turning them into gay puppets and sex toys. Also, the kids now a days are lazy, rude and think we owe them everything and you get that all over cities like Murfreesboro. That's just my opinion, you asked so take it for what it is...just an opinion. I don't want to offend anyone, just wanted to voice my 2 cents.

I also moved here a few years ago with a job transfer. I did a lot of research on M'Boro and found it to be a decent place to live. After living here for a few years, I wish I hadn't moved here. The crime here is horrible, and home breakins are out of control. From what I hear, gangs are everywhere here and it's not a place to raise children. I have regretted my decision and wish I could go back and do it over again. I do find the Lascassas area one of the best places to live if you do choose to move here. I live there and have found it to be ok.

I'm from Murfreesboro, but I've lived in the Tampa area and in Bowling Green, KY. Living in Tampa was nice, but I really like the feel of Murfreesboro(so do people I know - they compare it to other souther college towns). It's got good shopping, good schools, and the traffic isn't to bad once you learn your way around

As long as you are an evangelical "Christian" you will like it....any other faith and you are not welcome!! Freedom of religion does not apply in Murfreesboro!!
