i too have lived in mid town memmphis and still have freinds in memphis living in several areas of memphis most of the problems are with low income areas and the same goes for Jonesboro. i move back to Blytheville for a job and refuse to drive a hour and 15 min each way, live over by the Hospital/ country club and have had no issues for the last two years. i had several issues in jonesboro with break ins, stuff being stolen out of my yard and i live in candlewood i just wish we had as much stuff to do as Jonesboro or Memphis oh well we would probably have more B/S crime if we did . but you are correct in saying the city needs to control the amount of hud once a property goes hud it is hard to rent off of hud the houses are torn up and one hud attracts another.<quoted text>
Midtown Memphis is a very nice area??????
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ha

LOL @ the idiots that think the neighborhood's around JCC aren't nice. The houses are very very nice, not a bunch of cookie cutter crap thrown up real fast like most of the areas in town and the people are great. Established people, no crime, great houses, centrally located to everything, what else do you want?

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) Jonesboro police are searching for two men who broke into a home, shot a man four times, and robbed him.
According to Jonesboro Police, just after 12 a.m. Wednesday two men broke into a home located on the 1800 block of Mitzi Lane and demanded money.
Police said during the robbery, a 25-year-old man was shot four times in his legs, and was hit in the head with a gun.
The man was airlifted to the MED in Memphis and was released Wednesday afternoon.
Bob Rice has lived in the neighborhood where the home invasion happened since 1994. Rice said the neighborhood is mostly quiet, but has changed in the last few years.
"There's been a lot of people move in and out, and as far as being safe, there's a lot of traffic up and down the road. Kids going up and down the road and that kind of stuff," he said. "Policemen patrol it quite often."
Police would not comment about the investigation, but provided a description of the two suspects as black males, one standing about six feet, two inches and the other around five feet, nine inches.
Police said a 13-year-old and a four-year-old were in the home at the time of the shooting. They were not injured.
Anyone with information can call the Jonesboro Police Department at 935-STOP.
