Another example of West Frankfort. Grant burnt herself good on east fourth street was busted in 2004 and still cooking. If you dont lock them up instead of let them snitch for time they will never learn. Dont they make enough on welfare and foodstamps. Please people stay in wf i want to stay safe. You are in a perfect Obamaland!
Just to correct you on your info. Grant was not busted in 2004 for manufacturing. She was ticketed for a bowl. For weed. She was ticketed in Williamson county in Nov for meth materials. Which is still in the hands of the court. She did in fact burn herself badly. Arms hands n chest. And she is now waiting charges for that. I do agree with putting the ones in jail for there crimes. Just saying!

As everyone post comments about how bad West Frankfort is, why don't we do something about it. Instead of talking about it going down hill , the drugs, the economy etc.. If everyone gives up are town will never be the way it use too be. If one person from each family in this town did something positive we would be on the map n not for drugs, unemployment , and crime. This is are town let s get it back to what it use to be!

Franklin county has the highest unemplyment rate in the worst state in the union for opening a business......its a fact. So that make us the worst county in the country for a job.

Which in turn makes it where we have alot of low lifes stealing....

Hi.
So I would just like to invite the above posters, and any others who listed racist comments to kindly put their computer(s) in the driveway and back over it with their car. There are enough half-witted ignorant idiots on the internet, we don't need you adding to that. Thank you, enjoy your day.

Anytime they move into an area, the crime skyrockets. Have you ever seen a neighborhood with minorities that was well taken care of and safe! Its a fact that west frankfort has gone to shit. Five homicides in one year, is too much for such a small town! Sorry for those of you that are holding onto old memories, but it is time to move on.

Anytime "they" move into an area the crime skyrockets? That'd be like saying if white people move into a town it will improve. Crime is increasing everywhere, it's not because of one race, to think so is just asinine.

I just want to know why so many blacks right now? WF was already bad enough with all of our white trash drug addicts that live off the system. Why are they suddenly moving here? Everyone knows Franklin County is a very racist area!

I would absolutely recommend against moving to west frankfort. I grew up in the area but not in this town, I moved here last summer and let me tell you I hate it. Its suppose to be a good part of town and I have not one but two drug houses directly across the street from me. It's terrible and I will be leaving as soon as my career transfer goes through.
Why now

I feel your pain. Lived in WF for 1 1/2 years and I hate it. You must live in my neighborhood because there are at least two drug houses within two block area. Probably more than that. Within first 3 months on moving to this town I had numerous items stolen from outside our home. We hate taking our kids out to play due to drug dealers across street or random a$$hole kids that will say horrible things to small children as they ride by. And what's up with all the pit bulls running loose. We have had dogs fighting in my yard and I don't own any dogs. I can't believe this town leadership doesn't at least try to fix all these problems. Hopefully will be moving soon!

Maybe they're moving there because they thought after decades of equal rights that finally racism would stop. They must have thought wrong. From what I read on here there are obviously some terribly idiotic people in this town. Racism is just a way for ignorant and self conscious people to feel better about themself my putting their race up on a pedestal rather than do any work to change their life.

And how many of those homicides involved african americans? It's quite apparent to me that y'all white folks have had no problem causing/contributing to the downward spiral of the town.

Really- every town and school has drugs- there's better parts of town to live in than others or just on the outside of town. Just depends where u want to live. West Frankfort is pretty much like any other town. You have a little bit of everything going on. And to donor live here. If u lost your son it wasn't because of the town. Most likely it was the people he hung around with and the way he was parented- how can u blame a town for that-
are you on crack? or just stupid

I am very disappointed and discussed in my home town and a lot of the people in it.
It's not the same place I grew up in.
With the way it looks like a ghost town and all the druggies that have taken over. All I can say is Wow! And I'm actually ashamed of West Frankfort and don't want to be associated with it at all anymore.
The town and most of the people in it
It looks like it has been hit with chemical warfare
And I can't believe they actually let black people move there as I remember the stories of our area it had very strong ties to the KKK so why the change?? Maybe that was the towns first mistake one of Many.
And all the gossip and attacking each other
It's a dead end town and I am so glad I got out and stayed out.
Take a look at yourselves and the town
it's embarrassing!!
Poor white trash..Always have to blame black people for the way you all live. I can assure you black people are not the reason why the majority of whites are on welfare,OR the fact that you all swap partners every other week popping out children by dead beat druggies "baby daddy's" who can't stay out of prison. Why don't you all take responsibility for what you do and quit blaming black people! Lol That's you're. First problem

Im pretty sure no descent educated law abiding black person would even want to step foot in that white trash hell hole...don't worry...when the women are easy and drugs are readily available well those are the only kind of people that would come there unless they have no idea what type of town they are moving to...I love how you all are so worried about "them" moving in ..like they are going to ruin the town more than it already is.
