To bad i work in this god forsaking place waiting for the day to be able to leave here. Its a desparate place 95% on assitance or handouts complianing about situations cuase by themselves. Its total abuse here. 98% using food stamps refusing to learn or even seek carreers its so easy to get on public assistance why would they? Its a city with millions of votes for the democrats and billions of dollar for the welfare system its ridiculous. The new trend is teenage lesbianism i mean 13 and 14 year old girls that are unsupervised or have parents who are totaly dependant of this so called human resouces adminitration. God forbid you have a child with one of these woman here you,ll see what i mean.. As for teenage lesbianism it is spreading rapidly yet they still find a way to have kids and get free shelter and expensive even being lesbians it is a total scammers heaven here, the social security administration is sold out as well doctors send scamming moms to get social security funds for self induced asma by turning on your oven all night it can cuase your child to suffer asma its a common scam and welfare mothers here are quick to make there children asmatic for the sake of collecting social security just a typical scam played out here over and over again attention deficit from abuse and allowing child to act out and its is encourage well of course if it leads to a check every month it is encouraged even planned by people here poor kids they dont stand a chance with a parents like this.

Huh?

Anyway, I think all cities have issues that just vary in volume and concerns.

Youngstown, Ohio. This city has majorly high violent crime. The suburbs are pretty safe, but the city neighborhoods are full of poverty, joblessness, and the ensuing drug trade accompanied by the usual violence. Youngstown has only about 85,000 people, but averages about 50 or more homicides a year. This city is hard core!!!

the very same thing could be said about most metropolitan areas, particularly medium to large in size: e.g. nashville, tn, birmingham, alabama, baltimore, maryland, memphis, tn,. all of these have exceptional suburbs w/ little violent crime. their inner city black neighborhoods are atrocious. it is pretty much a given all over the country through urban areas. nothing new.

Youngstown has problems, but there's no need to exagerate them.

Also, most of the violent crime is drug or gang related.

Most of the crime in Youngstown is definitely drug and gang related. I don't live in Youngstown, but I do spend quite a bit of time there, and have never had any problems beyond being panhandled. I also am careful to avoid certain parts of town, though, and don't linger in the areas where the drug and gang activities are reputed to be the greatest. There are plenty of innocent folks out there who do become victims, so it is wise to be cautious.
