The people in this city were violent, always ready to rob someone that wasn't from their town. Most of the people here were always on drugs and seemed like zombies when you saw them. The whole entire city looked dirty like something out of a mad max movie. There is nothing good about this city or any city in the state of Florida period.

Nothing stood out, everything was just disgusting. You could feel the negative energy and hate from everyone you crossed paths with.
