You can't be serious, I mean yeah Marion has more thugs & punks than Herrin, but Marion is way bigger. I am from around here and can tell you Herrin is a dump. Seriously don't think your safe in Herrin lot's of "Marion's finest" have moved to Herrin cause the Marion cops is busting their chops...

Yeah they convicted Rex. He refused to face some of the past victims at trial and was basically locked in his house on Second Street for the rest of his life with an electronic anklet.
He nailed me from 1965 till 1976 (age 5 - 16).

He's buried west of Carbondale at an old cemetary off the side of old Route 13. But his grave is not marked, and the keeper will turn you in if you ask about it. So let's just say I was denied my chance to desecrate Rex's grave.

I don't know what anybody could say to you my friend, except May God Bless you and keep you strong. Remember that it was Presson, not you, that was the instrument of moral evil , and his atrocities have no bearing on who you are today.

Good PR photos that Marion look good..but PR photos don't tell the whole story...anybody with a cell phone could snap pix of the REAL Marion.And yes, it IS a dump...Look around.

Good idea! Maybe folks can do a little cell phone photojournalism and post their pics of the REAL Marion on http://www.data.com/city/Marion-Illinois .
Could be important-if I wanted to relocate here, or bring my business here, I'd sure be looking at sites like this one and the photos.You get the other side of the BS story city promoters are likely to sell ya....

Renee, Marion is a very nice city to live in. Like all cities our crime rate is going up but nothing like the metro east area. If you will give me a # I will call and answer any questions you have. I've been a businessman here for 30 years.

If you like living in a backwater filled with chain restaurants, big box stores that is run by a disbarred attorney who has been in power since Kennedy was president, you'll feel right at home.

If not, I suggest you look elsewhere.
