Any gang issues are a problem. Compared to many areas Jonesboros gang issues are low but do exist. They need to be dealt with NOW not after they multiply.

Just don't move around Apartment city near ASU or in the burbs of old down town Jonesboro, or near Anny Camp. To name a few places. I found it better to live in the outscurts of Jonesboro like Bono, or Brooklyn. Not so much crime in those cities, more layed back peaple also.

Jonesboro does have a gang problem and they are recruiting kids as young as 5th and 6th grade. As a city, we need to be educated about what to look for. As a parent, we need to know what to look for and how to talk with our kids about it.

"Gangstas" are moving here because this is a SAFE city....I see punks with gang affiliated tatooes all the time. We had our little groups of wanna-bes, but now they are getting support and leadership from these shitbags moving here from bigger cities.....

Don't fool yourselves and say there is no gang problem....It's just not a community wide problem yet.

It's coming, count on it. Probably the most dangerous gang member is the over-ambitious wannabee that will do pretty much anything to make a name/reputation for himself.

Ryan 'Li'l Ryan' Henderson (wannabee) and Chavarez Block were the victims of such at UCA... and the same will likely happen here. It's just a matter of time, and I don't know if there's any way to stop it... not by present methods, anyway. Obama sure isn't going to help them any.

It's gotten worse since Katrina evacuees arrived, plus lots of blacks from Memphis keep migrating here. And so many want Jonesboro to become a wet county and put liquor stores on every corner? If you build it they will come.

Hell, they don't have to come from that far away....most of our problem childs are from Forest City, Blytheville, Earle, etc. When these locals idiots actually hook up with someone from a bigger city that "has been there, done that"....that's when the real trouble starts.

There seems to be a formation of hispanic gangs in Jonesboro now. The Hispanics and Blacks are going after each other.

The Hispanics will win out LOL. Then maybe the north side will be better! I know its just my opinion but it seems sad that i just sat here and hoped for more Hispanic gang activity on the north side so it might be a better place.

Remember when (not so many years ago) the north side and apartment city was the cool place to live if you were going to school at ASU? They used to put out signs to lure in college kids and i was one of them. Now they hang out signs trying to lure "HUD approved" people in. Maybe the Latinos can clean it up and make it something again.
