Anybody ever watch the HBO documentary titled 'Banging in Little Rock'- Crime rate per capita was the highest there of all the states at the time of its production. I lived in Little Rock for years then moved to North West Arkansas. Raised my kids in Bentonville where at the time was a wonderful safe family community with excellent schools. Did he mention corrupt towns- Harrison, Arkansas is one town you don't want to be in like EVER! The legal system there is a sad joke. Sooo glad to be out of Arkansas. Sorry to any Arkansan's - I know it's a beautiful state and Little Rock has some amazing cultural aspects but no thanks. Been there done that.
