1) The emergency room at the hospital will check you in then leave you in a room for an hour before a nurse shows up and calls you by the wrong name. They did this to my wife three times in a row. While you lie there in pain, you get to hear the nurses and the EMTs discussing last night’s episode of “Big Brother”.

2) The police are terrible. I’ll go into this later when someone contests this statement, and I’ll be sure to post links to articles backing it up. There are SOME good police officers (think 4 or 5 out of 62), but they’ll still go on the local news and swear up and down their crooked buddies are innocent, assuming they make the mistake of getting caught in the first place.

3) If you don’t live north of the mall or across the lake, your property values will NEVER go up, and will in fact decrease with time. You see, Danville is filled with rental properties and trashy people who tear up the rental properties. This means landlords will do the absolute minimum in upkeep, because it’s just going to be torn up by the tenants anyway, most of whom pay one month’s worth of rent, squat for 90 days, then dump spoiled milk on the carpet and punch holes in the walls. If you spend the money to sue them, you will recover nothing since the courts won’t garnish their welfare check.

4) The local “newspaper” is literally closer to a daily pamphlet, you will be lucky to find any local news beyond some “feel good” garbage on the front page designed to make you forget the town sucks.
5) The roads are terrible. TERRIBLE. Even I-74 is bad around the Danville exits.
6) People wander parking lots trying to either beg money from you, or sell you their food stamps.
7) The best blue collar jobs in town will pay $12-$14 an hour (for 3rd shift factory work), but you will only work there 6 months to one year before being laid off.
8) Sex Offenders. 135 registered sex offenders.
9) We had the LOWEST housing prices in the NATION. Until CNN did a report on it and the Mayor and Aldermen decided to just stop submitting data so it couldn’t be proven.
10) Average household income in $28,611 (2009). It went DOWN since the 2000 figure of $30,431. Can you think of ONE THING (Utility bills, Gas, Groceries, etc.) that has gone down in price since 2000? I didn’t think so.

Sorry about the double posting, but as you can see, Danville is literally one of the WORST places to live in Illinois. Anybody that thinks otherwise has their head in the sand or just doesn't want to admit they live in such a crappy, run down, crime ridden area.

The most alarming thing is that as inflation raged for nine years, the average household income decreased.
You don't have to be an economist to know that this is a bad thing.

Now all you idiots that think you live in Shangri-La can call me a hater and a jerk. I can't wait to see the ignorant comments people make to convince themselves that it's not this bad.

When some heroin addled gang member breaks in to rob your house and ends up raping your wife or child, then the cops take 45 minutes to get there, then the E.R. staff doesn't care about you, then you find out you're not the first person it's happened to but the Comical news chose to report an apple pie recipe instead...etc. etc. You can't say you weren't warned can you?

between 114 and 300 cases of gonorhea each year, every year, from 2005-2009.

It can't be that bad now can it? I mean, these figures end in 2009, 3 years ago...so certainly its gotten better. It's not like Vermilion County doesn't offer an STD clinic or anything, Right?

Uh-Oh guys

the reduction in programs has made it difficult for the health department to have a finger on the pulse of problems in the community such as STDs.

“When we had a clinic here, we were able to look and determine access to services and partner identity,” she said.“We had a better handle on where prevention needed to be placed.”

According to figures from the health department, chlamydia cases are the most numerous in Vermilion County and have seen the largest jump, going from 438 cases in 2010 to 624 cases in 2011 — the highest total in more than 15 years. More than 50 cases have been reported so far to the health department for January, giving the indication that yearly totals will stay high.

Did this really happen and when and what part of town? If this awful crime happened to you, I hope every one has gotten the help they need.

Say, you sound a little upset with good old Danville, home of the Van Dykes, O'Conner, Hackman, Short & company. Musta been a better town back in their time, huh?

Say, I bet you've warned Meijer's, Kohls, TJ Maxx & company of their TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE MISTAKE at coming to SUCH a hellhole!!!!!!!!!! They MUST be IDIOTS (er, like you) to locate and build here!!!!

Say, SO FAR I've NEVER been MURDERED, RAPED, ACCOSTED, MUGGED, ROBBED....Guess I'm lucky, huh?

SAY, WHY DON'T YOU MOVEMOVEMOVE to ROCKFORD, or E. ST. LOUIS?????? HEY, move to SOUTH CHICAGO! AND if you are NOT murdered report back on the heavenly improvement in your blind daily life! You are an EMBARRASSMENT to this town and I'm ASHAMED of you!

Let's Talk About D-Vegas:

1. All of the famous celebs are either dead or in nursing homes (i.e., the Van Dykes, O'Connor, Hackman, Short, and Morgan). Musta been a better town back then.

2. Meijers and Kohl's is ONLY coming because they believe the Mayor's riverboat casino scheme is working. Those places will squat a store down in the middle of Beirut if there's money to be had (and, in case you didn't know, Beirut actually has a lower crime rate than D-Vegas and East St. Louis these days! NO JOKE!)

3. I've never been murdered, raped, or mugged either, but as I'm in the 70% majority, that only means I'm one of the lucky many. In a family friendly community, I'd be in the 95% majority, like say Des Moines or Des Plaines, but I had the misfortune of being born in the D-Ghetto. My sister got raped, a friend got shot, an uncle got killed by a drunk driver, child molesters roam the streets in record numbers compared to Decatur and Champaign, but as long as I personally haven't been murdered, raped, or mugged, I should take the attitude those unlucky 30% got what they deserved, right?

4. Say, isn't it an embarrassment to the community to have so much filth and depravity in D-Ghetto? How can you defend the wanton crime, rampant drug abuse, and police corruption without batting an eye? In a moral community, YOU would be considered the laughingstock of the entire neighborhood! But NOT in D-Vegas!
Vermilion River Rapist

My friend Amy got raped by the Vermilion River Rapist last month and the cops wouldn't do anything about it. They deny he exists even though 20 other girls have been raped in the last 3 years along the North Fork, Middle Fork, and Salt Fork rivers! It's true! He walks the tracks and does it in the day time and somehow has gotten away with it. Most of the girls are to afraid to talk and the filthy pigs deny it's even happening. Don't trust the cops when it's your turn to get a diseased dick inside you! Stay away from Ellsworth Park and don't go near the lake if I was you! The Vermilion River Rapist doesn't hit you in the face, he puts a knife to your neck instead!

WidowsSon and I were wrestling around last night and some how my weinershnitzel ended up down his throat. It was all in jest, but then I white walled the heck out of his mouth. After gulping it down and wiping his mouth off with his mother's panties, he said it wasn't funny.

WidowsSon0000 was arrested for statutory rape the other day. Unless he can prove the young man led him top believe he is over 18, something questionable for a lad of 15, WidowsSon0000 might be facing jail time and sex offender registration. The DNA evidence he splattered all of the boy's briefs should be all that is needed to convict.

Danville is the worst place I have ever lived. I have been here for about eight years now and moving away has not proved easy. With the lack of decent paying jobs it is easy to get stuck here. I have seen and been the victim of violence of all sorts, my girlfriend was mugged and is afraid to even go to the gas station alone because she is constantly harassed by lowlife creeps, and then of course there are countless drug addicts and beggers everywhere. If you are considering moving to Danville, DONT.

I lived in Danville along time then went out & saw the world, I must say it is a first world shithole with a very weak infrastructure & alot of borderline retarded people(I believe the term is ignoramus). The police are corrupt, there is very little to do that is considered "constructive" and it is overall a sad place that has atrophied with American comparisons to poverty. It is not worst then the worst cities in America but for the size of it's population it is a fucking dump.

D-Vegas just has nothing to offer, so my girlfriend and I moved to Indianapolis. She went walking one morning and was raped by two black men, both of whom still haven't been caught. Then she stopped by a gas station and was robbed by two black boys. Now she is so physically and emotionally afraid, she doesn't leave our apartment. The day I took her out on her anniversary, which was also the day the doctor informed her she got herpes from one of her attackers, my apartment was robbed. Again, three black boys were fingered, even though it was during the day with school in session. I won't miss D-Vegas. Of all things, when I talked to the Mayor of Danville, Scott Eisenhauer, he stood there with a woody and undressed my gf with his eyes.
