Cops will tase you. Cops are crooked. The whole town is corrupt. Slum lords run the town. Jerseyville has street gangs.Jersey School district is corrupt. Drug addicts leave their needles laying in the streets.More taverns and private drinking clubs than churches. Smell of burning garbage and loud music. School district is broke. Taxes are going up. Gasoline highest priced in State.

New comers might improve Jerseyville. We need some new blood. Same people and their reletives get all the city and county jobs. Same crooks keep getting elected over and over again.....Elections are rigged.

Whoever is writing the SIN CITY comments is a complete idiot.
Jerseyville is a great small town. Any search of this town's "problems" are similar to every town in America. Do we have our idiots? Of course. Do we have cliques that run things? Absolutely, like everyone. Are the people friendly? Yes. Welcoming to outsiders? Yes.
Look, I am an educator in the district. EVERYONE has problems. The problems in this town are extensions of what is going on in the individual homes. People that complain about others who are doing their jobs [like the police, educators, business owners] are the ones sitting on their couches letting other people think for them. The good people in town are active members of society.

I hope your friend feels like part of the family very quickly.

No, the place really is a shit hole. There are good people there but the scumbag ratio seems to be a little higher there. I have also heard from long time residents that the court system is fairly corrupt. I also heard that the STD's in the younger crowd was a big problem. i was getting gas one day at a gas station and the cashier was arrested while on a cigarette break for selling heroin. Nice toen.

I grew up just down the road from jerseyville. I'm surprised every time I visit family there. The town has changed so little. The same families still live there that I knew as a kid. The town needs some new blood........that is so true. It reminds me of a place that time has left behind. I thank the Lord for my good fortune that I was able to move away before the black hole that is Greene county was able to suck me in. No jobs, no industry, no culture and nothing to do but drink your life away......
I dread every time I have to visit.

Jerseyville is to Alton the same as Belleville is to East Saint Louis and it's getting the lights turned down by every dark relationship that results in babies that are unwanted. You know gangsta thugs and the farmers daughter and the little ones who have to suffer in life because of "poor parenting".
Tell your friend to come to Jerseyville and bring along a lot of friends. Jerseyville will get new blood, along with diversity.
The farmboys run around with their playtoys and all of their girlfriends are playing with Mexican waiters and Negro athletes adding color to their roots.
Bring your batteries for the cops and their tasers. Most of them are shaved head soldiers who are sheep for the elite.

This place is so boring and everyone around here has to have their Noses in to someone else's business you can not walk down the street with out someone knowing what your doing i will be glad when the day comes that i can get out of this shit hole that we call a town

Umm the cops murder people w tasers

the city wastes over a million dollars buying land for a highschool that was voted down in a election b4 hand

alot of the people think they are wall street millionaires cuz they make 70k a yr and have a 500k line of credit

most the girls under 35 are pretty easy

most the guys are white trash fake tough guys whoe say they make 25$ a hour doing construction... but they dont tell u they only work 4 months out of the yr

the cops are paid off by the more wealthy families, repeatably

they hand out traffic tickets like its free money

no fast food places are open past 1030 during the wk... cuz the town is shut down by then

the teachers sleep with their underage students and nothing happens to them, unless its a homosexual relationship...

My boyfriend grew up in Jerseyville and has recently moved back there. He wants me to move there with him. I was there this weekend and drove around the town. There is a Walgreens with a redbox. That was the only thing of interest that I saw after reading this thread I'm not sure he will be my boyfriend much longer.

Now the crooks on the school board are going to close all the grade schools in the county and bus all the kids to Jerseyville. You can't beleive how corrupt this county is unless you live here. And the people who think Jerseyville isn't corrupt are part of the corruption. There are 5 or 6 old families here in the county that run every thing and are above the law.
