Funny how nothing is said about the dozens of car robberys by Blackfoot Park. They only report what they want us to know. We have to make Florissant look safer than the ghetto it is.

Florissant is not what it used to be. I grew up here and now I dont want my kids to grow up here. I dont trust the school district, I have to pay for my child to go to school because kids are disrespectful. You walk down the hall and kids have their pants hanging down to their knees. It looks like we are in the ghetto

The reason it looks like the ghetto is because it IS the ghetto. I moved here several years ago and regret it every single day. This city is a sh*thole. I look forward to the day I move, won't ever come back even if they were to hand out free money.

Maybe moving is not the answer but taking back our city is - Florissant used to be a beautiful city!! Why do we allow the things that go on here? Maybe that question needs to be addressed.
