Im just going to throw out facts about Villa Rica in this article. I moved from an area of Indiana that made the Worst Cities in America List here - you know right outside of Chi-Raq and Gary, IN. Born, raised and despised the entire area because of the drugs, gangs, poverty rates, corruption and horrific weather but then I moved to Villa Rica, GA. I have never heard more sirens daily in my life! This place is riddled with drugs and people are murdered on a weekly basis, its insane! Im not agreeing with this article actually containing any scientific or factual data, but I can verify that Villa Rica and surrounding towns is NOT the place you want to raise a family!
