  1. Twin Cities are crime ridden says:

    You know, I am beginning to wonder if the Twin Cities is safe AT ALL. The last murder/stabbing/shooting/whatever in my entire county was at least 4 years ago. Vandalism happens here and so do drug arrest, mainly meth, but murder? No.

    The Twin Cities has nice museums and nice malls, but that’s about it. But I am sure people who live in the TC area think themselves so much better than everyone else. Yeap, concrete certainly is beautiful.

    I cannot WAIT to move out of this neighborhood at the end of the month! The past year has been so violent and dangerous for the residents of this particular 3600 block of Portland. I am escaping while my children still have their innocence left and wish the best of luck and safety for my neighbors that I’m leaving behind!
