  1. Do any other readers find it disturbing that this seems to be the only site reporting the endless violent crimes in Jonesboro? Our family lives in what is supposed to be a “good” neighborhood in Valley View but has an endless parade of people of all ages and ethnicity attacking (physically and verbally) each other and anyone they think might not be able to defend themselves. All the crimes I’m seeing in these articles are being done and promised to be done. Everything too overwhelming for the prosecutor’s office seems to be reduced to a misdemeanor. Curfew is not enforced. People are allowing the perverts in Hollywood to brainwash their children and, by example, teach their children to lead criminal lives. We’ve begun searching for a better place. Jonesboro is too far gone to rescue. Especially with those who could improve things refusing to do so. What happened to the churches in Jonesboro? I don’t blame the police; between the criminals of all ages and the parents breeding more of them all the time the police are far outnumbered and restrained by the higher-ups.
