ppl wonder why this area is ascuzzhole
Agreed. Here's why -
Most of these people are educated by halfass proctor or "ND" rejects. Like someone is going to go for their Masters and decide "Gee, I think scumbags and perennial losers are neat! I want to go teach in Uterus schools!"
Most are racists or otherwise seriously flawed. That whole area is rife with people who have ridiculous values and aspirations. Instead of getting a good degree, the typical area reject dreams of playing football or baseball in the major major super major leagues so they can be rich and nationally no WORLD famous. This is the core value of the typical upstate youth, and why they think used Xbox games are a type of currency.
The leadership in the area is an inbred human sewage tank of people who HAD to steal and lie as a politician or "boss" for lack of anything like responsibility, accountability or a single real marketable skill past "flip the burger idiot".
The police are largely combative, immature and sit on topix and vent race rants and champion the pretend police you've been paying to protect you. They hide behind their Chief and Union scrubs to rip the city off in more ways than most uticans can count.
The UFD - Same story.
Ditto that piece of shit Scott McNamara the fraud who openly gives out free passes to friends and criminal cops, of which there are a great many.
The news outlets are run by pennyanne bullshitters who run flack as often as they can get away with.
Your taxes go up while they claim they have no money but they buy themselves 4X4 Hummers so they can look like rockstar wanabees they see on all the reality cop TV shows.... forgetting they don't have the intestinal fortitude to ACT like real cops ACT EVERYTIME.
The roads are shot, and the scumbags collecting the taxes just want take-home cars.
I could go on, obviously.
