  1. Jungleboro,Icehead County… Never a dull moment here folks! Nothing but money worshipping, materialistic, counterfeit Christian’s dwelling here for certain!Sodom and Gamorah couldn’t hold a candle to this God forsaken community. Seriously, people gathering nightly in the parking lot of buffalo wild wings at 2am drunk and boisterous, no police presence!?!? At least twenty people gathered at Kum and Go on Red Wolf boulevard at 3am Sunday morning acting like a bunch of thugs and gangster’s! I mean really, what is wrong with these ignorant young bunch of Clowns?!Crap i.e. rap music and super loud stereo systems… Talking trash and Pretending to be something or someone they are Definitely Not!!! This community has become a haven for junkie’s, wanna be gangster’s, predators from other counties, and corrupt law enforcement personnel! I pray that I see the day ,that Fire and Brimstone, rains upon this wicked, vile, and pernicious place…

    • You’re preaching to the choir, Jordan. The few of us left who are not doing the crimes see it and keep begging for better law enforcement but all the Aholes want is to keep raising taxes and doing a big stinking load of nuthin’!
