I was born in Yakima, and live there now. I have no problem saying it is a s**t hole dangerous town.
I have been shot at, had a gun pointed at me by someone driving by, as I was walking down the street, and about 7 years ago when I was 21 years old, my friends at the time decided to bring me to a party, and we had already been drinking prior to going, and I was pretty hammered
Well it turns out it was a I believe Norteno, gang party, and they were partying for the reunion of a fellow gang members death. I said something that offended ALL of them, but it wasn't anything horrible, and about 7 to 10 of them pulled out their fire arms which all had laser sights, and my friend said I had a bunch of red dots on my face, and chest.
Luckily my friend stepped in front of me with his hands up telling them I was very intoxicated, apologizing to them all. I know that sort of thing can happen just about anywhere, but that's just the tip of the iceberg of the things I've seen here.
There's tons of prostitution, drug dealing, and yeah gangs. I'm aiming to get the h**l out of yakima asap. Don't go there if you don't absolutely have too.

I moved from Yakima to Spokane...went back for a visit, is never happening again.
Spokane at least keeps the druggies, car thefts, crime, and poverty to Felonie Flats" otherwise known as the "West Side".
When I left yakima, there was "the hole" now the whole city is one."
