The police here pat their selfs on the back every time crime drops 1%. R**e, drug crimes, death by car wrecks is common. Homeless are shipped here from KC. The city council has issues with the north side of town. Very little money is spent there but the south side of town money is poured into it. The mayor lives on the south side.

Lots of good Restaurants to eat at. Sams is good

Lots of small family run businesses. Small towns around Springfield are great to visit. And Flea markets abound

The crime here in Springfield is brutal. Drugs, everywhere. Shootings and gangs. The schools are aweful. I was constantly being bullied or set up. I wouldn't ever wish my kids to go through what I did in Springfield schools. Kids are ruthless. Constant wrecks. I've seen so many disturbing wrecks happen right in front of me. I couldn't tell you how many I've seen.

I wouldn't recommend going downtown by yourself. AT ALL.
