The crime has been exploding and soemtimes i am scared to leave my house. the homeless population has definitley exploded over the last few years are every where. the city doesnt care about the well being of any citizens outside of the rich. and white people are racist but dont admit it. Theres little to do for teenagers.

Be careful going downtown especially by the movie theater, there are a lot of drug addicts, mentally ill homeless and pimps that stroll the promenade. genova bakery has some amzing break and we have the best taco truck in the nation. Mayitas sometimes has long lines but its worth it!
