Over the past few years, it has been compared to Memphis. Now, the crime is horrible, or just as bad as Memphis in comparrison to population, and we don't have as many jobs, parks, entertainment and opportunity here as Memphis does. Finally, Jonesboro has sunk lower than Memphis.

Jonesboro does not resemble Memphis - anyone who says so has never really lived in Memphis. Jonesboro is the center of Healthcare, Banking, Education, Arts/Entertainment, Shopping, Industry, Technology, Marketing, and Restaurants for a catchment area of 375,000 people. What do people "from" Jonesboro expect - things to remain the same way they've always been and the town to not grow?? It's not an Arkansas thing because every other major city Jonesboro's size - Hot Springs, Little Rock, North Little Rock, Conway, Bentonville, Feyettville, Rogers, etc are all progressively embracing growth, change, and prosperity. NOT JONESBORO - three Dollar Generals get robbed by the same doushbag and it's an african crime wave! So damn ignorant and backwards.

Its all the negros that moved here after katrina! When blacks move in crime rate goes up, way up. Thats just the way it is. Get rid of the negros and the crime will go away.

If the some police officers weren't so lazy, a lot of problems wouldn't exist. Many only want to draw a check and not work for it, as is the case, with so many city depts. But, now it's up to the citizens, to take matters into their own hands and stop all this junk. Don't give an inch when somebody is walking in the street right beside a sidewalk. Question why a perfectly able person is using a handicap parking spot. If you see, what you perceive to be suspicious activity, call the police. DON'T IGNORE IT! Buy a gun and learn how to use it.'Tis better to be judged by 12, than be carried by 6.

If Jonesboro is looking like Memphis that should tell you something.

The more blacks you have in the area, the higher the crime rate. Thats a fact. There are bad white people too, but most of the crime is committed by your negros. Just go ask a cop in memphis.

What draws crime into a city? How do they set up shop?

Free housing.

Get rid of or get stricter on the free housing here in Jonesboro and crime will drop drastically.

While people of color make up about 30 percent of the United States’ population, they account for 60 percent of those imprisoned. 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime.

The above are facts - google crime rates and race. The argument that the legal system is biased against blacks does not hold water. Let's say that there is a percentage of wrongful arrests and subsequent convictions based on race - does that account for 700% more blacks than whites being incarcerated? No way, at the most, with the worst of prejudice it MIGHT account for 15 - 20% more incarceration, but not 700%. Blacks are incarcerated so much more often because they commit crimes against others so much more often. The argument which says this maladjustment is because of slavery past I feel is no longer valid. When a black man can be a two term President there is no longer a disparity in opportunity to achieve/succeed. There is a relationship between number of blacks in a community and amount of crime which occurs in that community and I challenge anyone to deny that this is a proven fact. The danger and travisty is assuming that all black individuals are criminals, but to ignore the stats is to be naive.
