Crime is not that bad on fall river as I live in the corky row section but the whole city's become a toilet since I was a kid being born and brought up here.

The whole state blows cuz it's full of libtards and the city has never been able to save any money except for the politicians who have and will continue to get rich by crooking the city.

As for me I work in the city and when I retire 3+ yrs from now I'm moving to a state that allows it citizens to be free like say Texas, Florida, north or south Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, New Hampshirempshire, Maine etc etc etc. Btw, there aren't too many places that don't have drug problems nowadays, unfortunately !

I live in Fall River, and I am surprised it didn't make the list. We were once a thriving textile Mill city, until NAFTA came along in the 90s. They all moved to China. Now, all the section 8s from Taunton, Boston, and many other places, have taken over. The landlords got greedy and raised the rents for a bigger chunk from the state, and as a result it is hard to afford an apartment if your just a worker. Some people will not rent to you if you get your income from a job! The crime has risen. Gangs are taking over. This is definitely not the city I grew up in anymore!
