What is up with the east 12th street and sarrounding area.Is it like a no rules zone.Where you can boom your stereo, sell ur pills, hollor, scream, children and animals running the streets all hours no supervision.And these are things you can see going on right out in the streets any day of the week any hour of the day.Not too mention all the traffic at all hours.I just wonder if anyone else had noticed the issues in these nieghborhoods.And if anyone else had said something about it.If so what kind of responce you reieved if you thought the authorites did enough too stop the poblem.

That's right in the heart of the ghetto of Parkersburg. What do you expect?

People from Parkersburg would poop directly in their pants if they were exposed to an actual ghetto in some big city with major crime problems. Maybe you should "sarround" yourself with a different area.

Lol, yeah, I was thinking the same thing as I read his post. The people he's talking about are just local trash, every town has its share - he should be thankful that ours is mostly concentrated there and at a few welfare complexes such as Château Hills so that decent people can easily avoid them by choosing to live in better neighborhoods. Since it's readily apparent that no one who lives in neighborhoods like 12th St.(and about six blocks in every direction surrounding it) cares enough to do anything about the problem.

I will say that I've noticed that there are a lot more people like that around since the state's mental health budget started getting large chunks cut out of it back in the 90s. Well... that and since the mouth-breathing portion of the women in this state lost both the abilities of keeping their legs together and of managing to swallow oral contraceptives on a regular enough basis to actually work. Be a LOT less trash around if the government would, instead of loading up those state foodstamp debit cards with funds each month and turning the welfare people lose to spend it how they like, purchase basic food products in huge bulk, ADD CONTRACEPTIVES TO THAT FOOD (yes, I was shouting, lol), and distribute it to them directly. And we'd save millions of tax-dollars every year in the process. I'd call that a double-win.
get over it
