I'm from out of state. I do pass through Pensacola now and again. Never had any problems. The OP got pulled over and now wants to castigate the entire area over the traffic stop. If I inferred anything from his post, it would be more about the OP's vindictive personality, and not what Pensacola did wrong.

Wow. Some of you are truly speaking harshly about that part of the world. While I live in Atlanta, I am in Pensacola for four or five days every month or so. In my experience, it is a nice, laid back part of the world. Is it a "sophisticated" metropolis? Nopers. But, then again, why would locals want it to be? Keep doing what you're doing, Pensacola. There are those of us who appreciate you.

Default Redneck Riviera

To reply to the poster earlier in thread (and anyone who may be curious), "Redneck Riviera" referred to the post-WW2 era small bungalows and shore shacks that were a common working class vacation home in the far west Florida panhandle into the southeastern Alabama coastline. After a major hurricane hit sometime in the late 60s/70s, most of this housing was wiped out and the land gobbled up by developers for upscale condos. Don't know how much of the "Redneck Riviera" beyond the name survives, though I've never been to the area to judge first hand. Anyone's who interested should search for "Redneck Riviera" in Amazon; there's a whole book devoted to this history.

you realize that north Florida is South Alabama...right?

I was brought up in the Panhandle. Once I left it took me 20 years to return. Even back in the day being a police officer garnered more income then most other jobs.

The economic divide ( the haves and the have nothing) is extreme ( back then and now, yes I've been back to many times in the past year)

Also, you need to realize as some one driving a car, you had a target on your vehicle so to speak. You my dear, were not one of them. Simple as that. The tinting was the cherry on the ice cream.

Probably because not one of the 12 gave a damn, Scarlett. Add me to the list.

Hurricane Ivan changed Pensacola a lot. Downtown is bussleing, East Hill good, Casino Beach caters to the partiers, young military people, not my scene, I go away from the peeps, past Portofino to Navarre, Destin to Bay county line,
I dont care who does what, but I prefer a non drunk, non facial pierced, under 300lb crowd.

The entire central Gulf Coast is basically bubbles of awesome surrounded by a bunch of blah!

Downtown Pensacola has really come to life and the section of undeveloped beach between Portofino and Navarre Beach is a national gem.

Have been living in the area for two months (from Atlanta), and you couldn't drag me away kicking and screaming at this point. The beaches are gorgeous, the people are very friendly, the food is pretty darn good, and the traffic is non-existent (based on my living in Atlanta for 30 years). Wonderful part of the world!

I just moved to Fort Walton Beach...while I know that's not Pensacola we haven't spent a lot of time there as well. So far my family and I love it and God willing we hope to stay either here in the FWB/Niceville area or eventually move over to Pensacola.
