I was raised in Salem and I miss it sometimes. I moved for personal reasons, not cuz Salem sucks. High school made me want to do alot of things but not kill myself and yes they do have a problem with the up-t-up people but tell me a town that dont. Yes the PD did pick on me and my friends from time to time but we deserved it. I dont regret one min of my life spent in Salem. It is just like all small USA towns. I am sorry u have such bad feelings towards Salem try to move hate will consume your life.

It seems funny to me.I grew up in Virginia and lived there for 34 years but then I came out here to live about 2 years ago.So far the impression that i get from town is that the people for the most part act like a bunch of stuck up a-hole's. never had that problem in Virginia.Teenager's act like they are better than everybody and act very rude.The older people never say so much as hi to anybody.This town is pathetic.All i can say is the last time i checked this isnt Miami or Beverly Hill's so i don't see how these people can be so full of themselves.

I am getting ready to move from Salem after 34 years. I was born in the South and lived there the first 16 years of my life I do have to agree Southern folks as a whole are a lot more friendly and less reserved when I first moved here it was one thing that took a lot of getting use to. In the south everyone sits on their porches in the summer and greets their neighbors. I do not see any of that here :( I do miss that about the South. There are a lot of good folks in Salem though and it will be hard to go back South and leave a lot of the friends I have made, but on the other hand the Southern folks friendliness will be a breath of fresh air.

As far as the Gary,well,he was just in a bad way,and took a bad way out. I'm not going to go on,because this topic is pointless babble,but leave my friends name out of this!

This whole lil forum so fars been a pretty good testament to how most of the people in Salem treat each other. :)) I'm glad I was able to leave while I could. Every town has it's problems it seems like salems got more than it's fair share and the fact that people would rather attack each other rather than doing anything beneficial about it says enough in itself.

I lived in Salem for a good part of my life. And it seems like the court system is a bit screwy. Let's ppl off after drinking and driving killing one an leaving another mentally retarded Letting criminals off with just a slap on the wrist and then if a good citizen does something's then it's the harsh punishment. Glad I moved out of that town. Some cops are pos. hopefully one day the town will be good again.
