I left Fayette County for a safer place to live. After reading the Citizen online everyday, I believe it was the best choice.

I would like to pull crime stats and see where you stand. If you're still in the state, I seriously doubt you're in a safer place.

Anyways, best of luck.

Thank you for your concern. Although I will not disclose my location, I am fully aware that statistics can be spun to prove any point. I am not interested in trolling or starting a web debate.

I grew up in Fayette County and watched it slowly deteriorate over the years. I have decided that I do not want to raise a family in this location. I am saddened by the constant robberies, assaults, and general self-centeredness of many inhabitants. It is rare to receive a friendly smile, a helping hand or a simple “Hey! How are you?” from a stranger while you are walking down the street. Now people just keep their eyes down….

Big business has pushed many “mom and pop shops" out and fed the population a diet of greed and materialism. Everyone deserves something…everyone is entitled….everyone is first.

What happened to loving your neighbor and good will?

Around where I live in PTC, I wouldn't trade my neighbors for anything, they are helpful, kind, and generally good people. I look out for them and they look out for me.

I hope you find whatever you are looking for in life, however; disatisfaction may follow you no matter where you go.

never let the facts get in the way. You did start the debate about "somewhere safer". Not us. You're the one who said you moved, I posed a simple query, that you didn't want to answer. I guess you did the research. :)

I have the best neighbors I've ever had in my life, right here in PTC.

I still fail to see how even stating a County that you moved to would be an issue. I have fun with my Northside loving folks all the time will pure crime stats. Not sure how they can be manipulated.

...little hamlet in the south. Very sad.

"Everyone deserves something…everyone is entitled….everyone is first."

1. I deserve that money sonic has!
2. I am entilled to the Sonic money as well as the employess personal belongings.
3. I will be first to take what does not belong to me.

How about looking at it like this agirl.

1. I deserve the right to go out and work hard to better myself.
2. I am entilled to try to be first however if I come in 2nd 3rd 4th or last I will work harder to EARN the honor of being first.

agirl no one deserves or are entilled to things they did not work for and there is only one 1st or there would be no 2nd or nothing to strive for.

Just some thoughts

Just vote. Citizens have given their lives for that right. Stop spending money we do not have. myself
