I live in Fort Pierce born and raised and over the last 15-20 years I have listened to kids who are not even old enough to know when Fort Pierce use to be bad,some of them wasn't even born yet but yet they can say how bad Fort Pierce is and most of them has never even stepped foot in Fort Pierce other than going to the beaches we have.

If they think Fort Pierce is so bad then don't come to our beaches.. but yet Fort Pierce residents can't even get on our beaches in the summertime because everybody from other cities is flooding our beaches.

They come from all around to get to those beautiful Fort Pierce beaches and then they go back to where they live and talk about how terrible Fort Pierce is and they never experienced anything in Fort Pierce to the negative.

I was born in Hollywood Florida, raised in South Florida. So I'm a native. Currently living in Fort Pierce. Stuck here for now, the police some are good and some are just thugs bad seeds! I went down two weeks ago about an officer abusing his power in regards to free speech, the Sargent I spoke too understand my position on the law and even admitted that the city ordinance was very vague. He said he would talk with this officer and everything was fine with this one. So two weeks later another officer treated me and threaten me of incarceration. So I went down again to speak with a supervisor this time with a different result! She claimed that they were govern by city ordinance, since when the government govern themselves- I always believed they were govern by the checks and balances of the Constitution-----

I live in Fort Pierce.... Yeah there is a part of the neighborhood that is bad, and that's where most of the unemployment rate comes from. We also have a lot of immigrants who run lawn service as income. Out class ratio in most St Lucie classes is at most 32. I have went to a school in Kentucky that had 42 students all crammed in a small room and one teacher, we did fine though. I've lived in Fort Pierce for almost 4 years, I did have a bike stolen once, though it was after riding it for several years. The worse part of Fort Pierce is drivers. I ride a bike and smiles close to getting hit a lot even when having the right of way.

The young people needs jobs and things to do on weekends and summer. The city need to do more emforstucture by getting more federal funds.

Expand the waterfront and move the boats out from the land mark. Bring in more weekend entrainment to get more revenue.
