I live in Galax. Moved here a couple of years ago due to having retired and wanting a cheap place to live. BIG mistake. Drugs and Perverts... There is a drug rehab place about the size of a big city high school a block or so from where I live. And big city, to me, means 100,000 or more and this hick town has about 6000. Perverts appear to also be common. A couple of blocks the OTHER way from me there is a nursing home famous for also being a porno studio in that the nurses are perverts and take porn photos of residents. The town is SICK. And it has to say something that the city/town police need to have a million dollar tank in order to protect those that are not drug users and sellers. What OTHER 6000 person town needs for the police to own a high tech tank to protect themselves?

Sounds like a commercial for Harmons , and I guess throwing in some drama does attract more attention to it .
There are no "cartels" in Galax ,there's a huge screen in the police station that shows what is going on in every area of the town , they can see every street corner without even going outside , and there are so many cops that you are lucky if you can even fart without getting arrested .
Correct. But the screen you describe, actually several that can simultaneously display six or more feeds from various sources do exist. They have taped a number of the security camera systems around town plus have a very modern street security camera network. All for a good reason. I noticed a Hispanic guy walking the Galax end of the New River Trail. This several times. The third or fourth time I saw him, which shows he was sloppy in his actions, he recognized me and ran off up a hill and into the woods. He had been in the Washington Post several times. He was the only MS13 snitch I'd ever heard of but he was planning to do a lot of damage to the organization due to them murdering a close relative. He didn't testify and was listed, supposedly by his wife or girl friend, as a missing person. He has never been found and did not testify in court. No cartels here to my knowledge but I don't work for those who might be interested. However, their is a HUGE police presence including a well equipped swat team. And surveillance really is everywhere! If you drive through town on US58 you will surely see at least one police car parked next to the highway. You'll notice that they are parked rather strangely. That is not parked the way the car is usually parked to run radar. That is because they are not running radar. They have license tag recognition equipment and capture the tag of ever passing car and run it for owner. Likewise these devices can take a photo, with amazing detail, of the occupants of each car that passes. The use of these data are not readily known unless you realize that along with some criminals who appear to have been parked here for safe keeping until their court dates there are also a couple of credible militia organizations in the area. Those who think this is a nice quiet little burg can draw their own conclusions.

you started being "rude" in your very 1st sentence! as far as my attitude,i like it quite well thank you! i grew up in a lot harder place than galax and NOBODY has EVER got the best of me,not even 2 to 3 at a time and convicts too,i wont be pushed around by anyone! your one of those stupid people that believe jail makes people tougher or whatever imaginary s..t you have in your mind about loser convicts like yourself! don't you have some more drugs to do or tricks to turn?!!!!!!LOL!
I havnt read any further past this post and I no it has been years since this. but you should watch out if u move to galax or already have the "cartel" as u call them is not the problem they dnt couse any ruckus, the meth problem is what has ruined our town. if I had to throw out a estimated percent of hard drug users I would say 70% of the population uses. to make things worse there are SOOO many young kids completely strung out. because I could literally go on for hours I'll some it up now. The "cartel" is not going to cut up you and ur family(unless u got involved in something you shouldn't have) ur biggest issue will be cranked out kids stealing from you.
