Drug and alcohol problems in Amarillo

Apr 2, 2008 Full story: KVII-TV Amarillo 42

“Drugs and alcohol definitely have an impact on crime. I'm just guessing but I'd say about 80% of our problems are related to drugs or alcohol. And the more education and the more we can curb it when they're young, the better off we'll be”

Region One in the state of Texas, which basically covers the tip of the Panhandle down to Lubbock, is the leader when it comes to binge drinking. via KVII-TV Amarillo

I can't believe my eyes reading some of your profound postings ( speaking to all ).

the drug problem in amarillo , well thats a deep subject having been a victem of it myself.

the real issue behind the drug use and crime here in amarillo is due to how amarillo treats people, and of course the crooked people who pocket the money for rehab centers.

Amarillo is a little cow town that nobody wants.
we are a forgotten relic of a time gone by.
this town stinks of molded carpet.
we were crapped on by the united states armed forces.
we were abused by big oil.

we have had to swallow the shame of our run down broken one horse city with it's dirty filthy train yards and ugly horrible living conditions on it's north side.

Amarillo is considered the anus of texas.
We are the laughing stock of the intire planet because we live in cow dung.

and thats being nice about it.
There are ALOT more reasons to dispise amarillo.

we are complacent, and we allow political correctness to paralize us on a daily basis.

The water is nasty and needs filteration.

You name it and amarillo suffers from it.

And people have the nerve to ask why we have a drug and crime problem.

Our doctors don't even treat us like human beings.

This town needs an enema!!!

I have to completely disagree. We moved to Amarillo 9 years ago and we love it here. Every town has its problems since they are all filled with humans who don't always do the right thing.

Drug users can't blame their use on anything or anyone, but themselves. I've done my fair share and "I" even know that.

If you don't like it then why do you live here?

Drugs, unlike people....are NOT prejudice.
They love all races, religions, financial situations and so on....

That is very true. The only difference is the consequences. Blacks and hispanics get harsher penalties. The only ones that could get a break though they may be black or hispanic,are those few that have money. If Papa comes in with the money,they can get away with it,only to do it again.

Honestly your abuse of the english language leaves me only the urge to shove a dictionary down your throat! Every town has it's good and bad side, don't get me wrong I'm leaving as soon as I can, but you still need a quick dose of reality if you think that Amarillo is the "anus of Texas". There are plenty of drugs around the country, plenty of crime roaming all streets, not just those here in town. I honestly don't know what you were on when you thought that this was actually worth putting down in writing, but you might want to think about the other living conditions in this world and realize that Amarillo can look like the Hilton compared to some of the horrible acts being committed in other countries.
Also learn to spell, it's annoying. If you're too lazy at least run it through a spell checker before imposing this garbage to other people.

I live in amarillo and have been living here for 19 years and I have done every drug in the book and have done them in my home town there is very easy acces but what town is there not, if you know the right people you can get anything you want. And for Amarillo its not that bad yea on the north side of town and that is in the ghetto and tell me which other town's ghetto is ugly and digusting and for the whole cow dung thing it comes from another town the matter of 55 miles away and yea that is the shit hole of texas but its all about self motivation and strive to get off those addictive substances and i mean 15 mi. away we got the 2nd largest canyon in the U.S. and on the south side of town its actully really nice and easy to get around its a big town in a small town body and what people are not crooked for money its just like any other town and we get most of are drugs anyway from small towns about 30 - 45 min outside of town

You poor little sorry ass people! I have lived all over the world, I have see people who have build houses from cardboard boxex and I drove a 2 1/2 ton truck to a dump site in one country and the poor people who LIVED in that dump were very happe to recieve what was left from open MRE's and T-rat boxes. I am PROUD to be back in Amarillo, America's Biggest Small town. The last message said that this city needs a enema, Well maybe but that is just to FLUSH all of these sorry ass not working, Drug using rejects far far away from MY TOWN! If you have a Drug problem Do something for yourself and get the help that you need! If you do not have a job then get off your damn ass and do something about it all. All of you cry babys make me totally sick! You are the only thing that is wrong with Amarillo!

I'm surprised that having been all over the world you are not a little tolerant and understanding. Let's face it, trailer trash meth labs are not moving anywhere. It's not okay, but those sorry asses, like you say,are from there. As for jobless bums, they are all over this country of ours. All other towns would like to get rid of them,but like they say--they ain't going, they ain't leavin!!!

Oh how I've mocked you since our first correspondence, dumbass! I still wish that you'd never speak to me again, but that's just because you're a moron. Since you're obviously, once again, not going to do this I suppose I'll tell you I'm well.
Seeing as how I have no interest in whether or not your still breathing I'll leave it at that.

Ah, how nice you've adopted the truth for a nickname. Since you can't take a hint and not talk to me or about me (as I've seen on other posts... once again not a "boy") how whould you like to get to know me. We can arrange for that, just name a time & place, and I'd be happy to come and show you just how sweet I can be.

you don't have to read my messages if its going to put your thong in a knot you know. Nor do you have to reply. And that was over a year ago that I assumed by your posts that you were a boy. Not a man...a boy. But as I've said before...with a little help from someone...I figured out who you were. So there's not really a reason to meet unless you just want to. Send me your address. And be sure to have your fridge stocked with budweiser for me. Hugs and smooches satanpoo!(I'm not getting under your skin, am I?)

Obviously you don't know me even with your help. So why don't you give me your address, so we're on a level playing field... afterall you never said how you "know" me or through who... not quite playing by the rules of friendly engagement.

Holy hell are people just now finding out that drugs and booze cause problems, where have all of you been. Hiding under a rock or what, drugs and booze have been a problem since the late 50's. It gets worse every year cause there are more kids and people getting out and around for the first time and trying new things, you know tuning in, turning on, and dropping out, does that ring a bell. Itís everyoneís problem and responsibility if the law wonít do anything then the people need to take matters in their own hands. Burn the meth labs down if need be they burn real easy, fight back, take control of your neighborhood, run the gangs out, with deadly force if necessary. If youíre not willing to fight for something, itís not worth fighting for. The law and courts seem to have both their thumbs up their butts and they are unable or unwilling to do anything what ya gona do just sit back and let the punks take over? Iím not teaching vigilante ethics Iím teaching good olí American ethics what is mine, is mine that goes for my home, property, neighborhood, kids and grandkids Iíll defend them all at any cost!

It sure rings a bell. Instead of taking the law into your own hands,you should try to talk to the media and the schools to better educate these people causing all these problems. We know that parents are responsible for teaching respect but if they are failing in this area,it then falls on the school system. If they don't do anything about it, then the community suffers. These are very powerful entities that could save many problem kids from becoming the losers they become. Just take a good look at the Panhandle newspapers. Who do they portray as the only successful ones? What criminals are bashed the most? I hope you have been watching NBC Nightly News. The face of America, or rather the United States is changing. We have to live with it. We might as well make the best of it. As adults, I think we are all ready to defend our own.
