I have to visit this sink hole at least twice a week...
Let's have a look at the highlights, folks:
Armed robberies at least once a week..a disaster of a school system (public schools run by administration with their kids at a private school)..a no man's land (the woods) where law enforcement doesn't go..a mayor that is much more intent on traveling and jumping in front of cameras (see Anthony Bourdain/No Reservations) than actually staying at City Hall and doing something(no wonder the councilman broke into her office)..Even the new businesses stink (yes, I mean smell bad)..professional rabble rousers who fool the ignorant masses into believing they give a shat about them..probably 70% of the populace dependent on government handouts..a downtown that looks like the zombies really did take over..
Yeah..How I wish I lived there!
BUT...your kids do play baseball really well...

I grew up there and know first hand how bad it is. I wouldn't piss on that town if it was on fire. Let it burn.

We breed this in Evangeline Parish. Look ast our Sheriff and police Departments. One is a convictedfelon who some Judge decided to Pardon him(like he won't do it again), One is a drunk, the other lies about where he lives, then gets cought having sex in a car. But the voters of Evangeline Parish think this is normal. Not so in the real world only in the redpublic of evangeline.

Ville platte may not be all that to you but it's like anywhere else it is what you make it and as for as where people send their kids to school is NOT your business so if you don't like our town stay the hell out

Ville Platte - Simply is like all others - It is what you make it - Not what it is...If you tend to see only bad then maybe the issue is you and not a town you do not live in. yes all your points are dead on...but what town is not so full of politics...You simply do what you to have to ...It will not change by complainning about it - but I understand how nice it is to put them in their place or a least call them out.
