Whatever point you were trying to make, was completely lost on me. Sounds like you're grasping at straws. You're pointing out small municipalities as somehow being "the face" of an entire region. Langley Park would be the only area in your rant, that has relevance. Lewisdale is a relatively small development, located within Hyattsville, which is largely diverse with a steadily declining crime rate. Bladensburg is getting about as close to central PGC, as you can get. Again, Mt. Rainier is a small city with a small populous. How does these relatively small areas compare to the great areas of Northern PG, such as Laurel, Beltsville, College Park, large areas of Adelphi, large areas of Hyattsville, and large areas of Greenbelt??? You're trying to make a point that doesn't exist. Growing up in Lewisdale, it's a far cry from how nice it used to be, but I'd feel safer walking through Lewisdale in the middle of the night, than walking around Forestville or Suitland or Oxon Hill. Turn on the news once in a while. I don't remember the last murder I've heard about in Lewisdale. Seems like every time there is a murder which makes the news, it's located somewhere in central or southern PG.

Again, you sound butt hurt over something that wasn't directed towards you. Perhaps you're guilty of being some of the lowly people I've described. Can't help if the truth doesn't tickle your fancy. Look at the rates of suspension in PG County schools. Last time I checked, the schools in central and southern PG county had significantly higher suspension rates, than those in the northern section. You can TRY to be dismissive of the FACTS if you want to; you can try to use general occurrences as scapegoats if you want to; but at the end of the day, the difference between what I said and what you said, is that my comments were based on FACTS and yours are based on weak emotions and unsubstantiated claptrap.

You want to try, again, or are we about done here?? I don't mind debating with people, but I'm wasting keystrokes on those who have nothing tangible to state to me.
That's cool and all bro- but here are the FACTS:

There was just a murder in Lewisdale a few days ago, as well as a triple shooting in the apartments behind PG plaza-

Gazette.Net: Prince George’s police chief breaks down weekend crime

From Jan. 2011 to July 2011 of the 46 murders that occurred in the county, @ least 13 (from my count that is) were committed in "Northern PG". The rest were either scattered throughout the county or were localized to the usual hotspots (Cap heights, Landover, etc)

Gazette.net: Maryland Community Newspapers Online

And I guess Riverdale, Edmonston, Queens Chapel and University Blvd wouldn't be considered Northern County either, huh? These large streets all travel through many different cities, so unfortunately everybody gets a piece of the action- As a matter of fact, PG301 posted a map of all the murders in the county from 2005-2011, check it out and see for yourself Northern County is no slouch when it comes to violence-

I'm not actually getting your argument? That one side of the county is better/worse than the other? Why does it matter either way? It's the same county, with the same issues!!!

And for the record, I would take my chances with Forest Creek over Springhill Lake in Greenbelt, any day-

Pg County is some shyt.(No offense)
Offense taken. There are some parts that are downright a shame and embarrassing, but with c. 800,000 residents. It ain't all bad.
