Yall were just ranked #3 in nation for being the "free-est" behind the dakotas. I am having a hard time seeing more items that make tenn a place for moving to. I read about the wild cops, the serious memphis crime, the property crime rates, and more drugs than most states have on average. Yes all states have meth. Its a problem when we are looking for new property because its hard to overlook.

All of this is true, statewide, but not all communities in the state are alike. There is a major difference between up and coming parts of Nashville and drug-addled hell holes in east TN and west TN that give Detroit a run for its money. It's all about location.

I agree. We can't convince you of anything.

It's up to you.

I thought being free was a good thing.

Most of east TN is completely overrun in drugs, crime in pursuit of drugs, and domestic violence. It may not be visible crime to a person not involved in that sort of thing, but it's there, and folks need to be well aware of it.

Your page ranks "victimless crimes."
