Well, I have been a resident of Moss Point for 291/2 years and every year it gets badder. If you think about the problems the city of Moss Point is having and see it's not just the jail it's the entire city.

I AGREE 150% WHAT I DONT UNDERSTAND IS HOW DO THEY GET AWAY WITH IT. SOMEONE IN HIGHER AUTORITY THAT IS A REAL PROFESSIONAL AND NOT A PRETEND ONE, SHOULD STEPIN AND REMOVE THE DEADHEADS FROM OFFICE. THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS NO BETTER.FIRST OF ALL TEST SCORES HA HA HA AND IVE SEEN MOSS POINT CITY SCHOOL WORKERS CRUSING THE ROADS ON SUNDAY IN SCHOOL VEHICLES. IVE SEEN CITY WORKERS DRINKING BEER WHILE DRIVING AND BEING ON DUTY. THE SIGHTS YOU CAN SEE OVER THERE ARE UNBELIEVEABLE SOMETIMES ITS FUNNY WATCHING THEM PLAY LIKE THEY KNOW THEIR JOBS AND THEY HAVENT A CLUE.THIS CITY IS TRASHY LOOKING ESPECIALLY BY CITY HALL AND IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE STORM ITS ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY. I HAVE WITNESSED DRUG DEALS IN BROAD DAYLIGHT, COPS HARASS ONLY THE CITIZENS THAT ARE DOING MINOR VIOLATIONS YET THEY ACT SCARED TO GO TO THE PARTS OF TOWN WHERE THEY COULD ACTUALLY CATCH A REAL CRIMINAL.ITS LIKE A BIZARRE TWILIGHT ZONE MOVIE OVER THERE.I SWEAR I AM NOT TELLING ONE WORD OF A LIE, HOW COULD THE REST OF THE COAST NOT KNOW HOW DISFUNCTIONAL THIS PLACE IS AND HAS BEEN FOR MANY MANY MANY MANY YEARS AND GETTING WORSE BY THE SECOND????
SOMEBODY WITH POWER GO OVER THERE AND REVAMP THE ENTIRE SYSTEM AND START BY FIRING EVERYBODY. IF YOURE PROUD TO LIVE THERE YOURE ONE OF THE PROBLEMS. HERES A HUGE CLUE MOSS POINT NO OTHER CITY ON THIS COAST IS AT AS LOW A LEVEL AS YOUR CITY. I REALLY DONT THINK OTHER TOWNS REALIZE HOW BAD IT IS SINCE MOSS POINT ALWAYS ADVERTISES HOW GREAT THEY ARE . HERES ANOTHER CLUE TO ANYONE NOT FROM THE COAST DO NOT BELIEVE MOSS POINTS WEBSITE ITS ALL A LIE, ALL OF IT........

Well, you've said a mouth full and I wish I could print this and send it to the city of Moss Point, because they seem to think it's just fine being in control over the city. I damn show agree with your statement to get rid of the entire Moss Point staff and bring in the task force or FBI. This town has death in the jail on the streets and even the church its not safe. Somebody please help!!!!!!!! Moss Point!!!!!!!!!!
