Alright so I live in Ridgecrest and I'm gonna say most of my friends are loners or nerds! However the biggest problem with the area is the lack of care for anything besides the military base and is the reason why the area has such a high number of college graduates.
The city has been under corruption investigation and still are to this day to funneling funds into other areas that were meant to be used for education and reworking of the roads.
The schools there have so much potential however the teaching staff is often under staffed and in my senior year of high school some of my courses averaged to about 36 students a class.
Even when things try to happen such as a Casino being built creating jobs and bringing in visitors, the city council will try to stop it at all cost due to thinking it will cause higher rates of crime. Crime is however fairly bad considering the population side.
The town is also a hot bed of drugs in use and production. I knew a guy who sadly over dosed and died and he was younger than me and worked as a security guard on the base.
The police here don't care about the poor or lower middle class citizens.
I wish somebody would actually care, I stopped years ago when I tried to get more activities for children going so we can promote a heathy, fun and safe lifestyle and keep them out of trouble but the city cut the funding and instead used it for 3 new police cars and a armored tactical vehicle.
