Hey, I'm just wondering what it would be like to retire, living in Jackson for the winter months in the Fondren area. Any comments?

Jackson is a cesspool of crime and detriment. That's all you need to know .

TruthHurts,
Your name says it all, but I need more "truth". I assume that you don't mean everyone in Jackson is a septic bit of cess and that you don't mean everyone there is a detriment. Is there a way to live a decent life in Jackson, associating with decent people? If not, why not? Sorry to bother, but with my physical ailments, many of the smaller towns in Mississippi are just not feasible.

Jackson is awash in crime. You can't even go to the corner store there now without worrying about getting robbed or carjacked. Just check out the sites for some of the news outlets in the area, like wlbt, wjtv, etc.

I am only hoping to save you some grief.
