    I have reached out to the Mayor be cause of drug dealing going on in my neighborhood for years now. I just don’t understand how this has continued for many years. It’s all night and day. None of them work. They all collect some kind of check. Sublet rooms in the apartment they rent. Lots of noise especially on the weekends. They use the yard and the sidewalk as a dump for their trash. The yard is always full of trash, unregistered vehicles,discarded furniture. It’s ridiculous. They really need to look into all the drug dealing going on here. They even deal drugs to the high rise on Pleasant St. Wake up Mayor CORREIA. Lots of young people dying from these drugs distributed. You want people to help you locate the dealers well do something about it when it’s brought to your attention.

      My son moved here for a frsh start and new job. Someone sold my child fentanyl laced heroin and he died on 12/17/18. He had only been there for a couple of weeks. The sound of this place haunts me

        Is funny that they want to add more police but the one they have are worried about who’s parking in the projects with out a parking sticker but they do reside here ..crazy while they are needed for real emergency smh

          Why would you comment that to a grieving mother? Whether he had a drug problem or not he didn’t deserve to die from fentanyl. You’re a p.o.s for saying that. Hope Karma bites you in the ass.

            It’s a legitimate question. Why would someone with a drug problem move to a drug infested sithole for a fresh start and new job? Makes no sense.

        Massachusetts is 23rd on the list, bud. Which means there are 22 states with worse crime rates, most of which are red states like Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee and Alaska.

          Exactly! Massachusetts Is NOT The Worst State for Crime. There Are Worst! AGREED👍

          I totally agree with you. Fall River has always been a dump since the 60s. Drugs are out of control in every city and town in every state in the country. Fentanyl is a big problem killing ppl. That shit is coming from China- FACT
          Just lost 2 family members to that shit! Get it off the streets. I know the police are doing the best they can but it has to STOP.

      Job security for the cop’s, they let this happen, to fill the prisons, and collect money fir the court’s, we don’t need more cops, we need cops that actually do there job, instead of using people

      And the folks in Fall River will continue to vote for the same corrupt politicians over and over. If you want a better life for you and your children Fall River is not the place.

    The report we are looking at was published in 2016. I wonder what the numbers are now. I have seen so much more violence in Fall River and New Bedford recently. I think this is a national issue at this time. Violence is everywhere. This year in particular, we were hit with the pandemic – which in my opinion, was shoved under some carpet in Washington. No guidance. So politicized. Then the homicide of George Floyd and Blacks around the world had had enough of the inequalities. Black lives do matter! This uprising in the name of justice, has its place and I’m happy that it is happening. However certain politicians fave fostered the anger in the wrong ways. White Supremisists have taken hold in so many places. This does not support the Black Lives Matter in the quest for equality and justice. And the issues with blacks being killed in the streets continuous. The anger is everywhere. This has certainly been a bad year for our country. The anger has so easily turned into violence. It is horrible. vote BLUE

      We have a former President who has no respect for the law, Police, Judges or the courts.

      • Michael Grayko

        May 22, 2024 at 11:48 pm

        Ok you don’t like Trump,he has no respect for police judges or the courts. If that was the case, then why if you look around the whole country is realizing and retracting there hatred for the man. Southern New England is without question blindly democratic and simple minded . What if you refrased your statement. The Government is choosing to weaponize the judicial system, thousands of man hrs paid out, to chase around an ex president with so many charges, over and over and have come up with nothing everytime. If he was a criminal they would’ve charged him with something and made it stick by now. It’s just diverting the attention of the simpletons while the whole country is being giving away by the current “president 😭”. The fucking border is open and being flooded with illegals that want and are getting a free ride, money to the Ukraine, money to this cause”bullshit” money to that cause”not America’s problem.” But nevermind that, or the drug epidemic also being fueled by the southern border crisis. The crime in America is insane right now and people are talking about Trump. Trump doesn’t need to run for president, he’s not a politician. He’s rich and could do anything he wants. But he wants to make America great again. So he’s thrown himself into a position where he’s under a microscope and ridiculed by millions of people who could never walk in this mans shoes. The battle this man is fighting just to fight for America is incredible and will be in the history books. And however long it may take, Trump will go down as the president who saved America from the Democrats who have lead us into dangerous territory with there lies and backdoor policies giving our country away, literally. All the while you know who’s not crumbling under pressure and walks and talks like a man I’d want running the country. Donald Trump. That’s who. You should really look into what it is your upset about, I think you might not have the whole story. If it were me and someone disagreed with my personal beliefs but had alot to say about why, id take a look at somethings, maybe step outside yourself and look at things a different way. If you still feel the same after you’ve read up on some things then hey, that’s fine too. We are all entitled to think and feel as we so choose. But if your opinions are based off of certain news channels , papers ,etc. You’ve been getting lied to and steered in the wrong direction for along time. Do some research, please I think your opinion may change. If not we can fight it out

          Micheal Grayko, I agree with your view, no one is researching anything they seem to believe the fake news stations and are either to ignorant to actually think that their view is the only one that matters. I was just having this same type of discussion with an older family member who think Biden is the greatest and if Trump gets in then we are all “doomed”. I went on to give my opinion but was met with “you don’t know what you’re talking about “ anything you hear or see on your phone is all fake! I knew right then that most of the people who voted Biden in will never admit they were and are wrong! I believe Biden is the one who should be charged with numerous counts mainly for treason, fraud,and falsifying the election in his favor. He should have never been the president of our country.

          May 28, 2024 at 2:14 pm

          I fully agree with everything that you have said about Donald Trump making this world a better place to live and how you addressed the borders being open and how they’re all getting a free ride while the rest of us suffer and have to pay for those who are getting a free ride why don’t these government people look into our homeless, veterans who are being kicked out of their places to make room for these people that are coming over from the border it’s just not right when will the government wake up and give us the president that we know will make this world a better place to live in DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT!! WAKE UP ALL YOU BIDEN PEOPLE AND SEE WHO THE TRUE PRESIDENT IS AND SHOULD BE DONALD TRUMP. WHEN THIS MAN WAS OUR PRESIDENT EVERYTHING WAS BETTER GAS PRICES WERE DOWN FOOD PRICES WERE DOWN PEOPLE WERE NOT BEING KICKED OUT OF THEIR APARTMENTS OR HOMES TO HOUSE ALL THESE IMMIGRANTS THAT ARE COMING OVER HERE AND TAKING ALL THE MONEY THAT AMERICAN SHOULD BE GETTING WE NEED HELP NOT THE IMMIGRANTS LET THEM GO BACK TO WHEREVER THEY CAME FROM THEY’RE ALL ONLY COMING OVER HERE BECAUSE THEY KNOW AMERICA WILL SUPPORT THEM FOR FREE SHUT DOWN THOSE DAMN BORDERS..

          Yup, You hit on a few things I believe is right. We need to take a step back, go over the facts, I feel you’ll come to the conclusion of who is ready and willing, to take on the issues at hand; I’ll give you a hint, it’s not any Democrat; they are the reason we’re in this mess in the first place. I personally don’t like either one them, but it’s not about who I like, it’s about who’s gonna get the job done. Nuff said!

      White people are tired of black violence.
      In the 80’s New Bedford and Fall River had cocaine problems like every city in the U.S. but violence was low. The only difference: New Bedford and Fall River was 67% Portuguese and 72% white. Do the math.

    • Carlos Faria

      June 30, 2024 at 5:48 pm

      Oh here we go. Playing victim again. New Bedford and Fall River was 72% WHITE in the 80’s and crime and violence was low even with a cocaine problem. That percentage has dropped significantly and crime and violence is at an all time high. Your movement is the problem. White people are sick and tired of black crime and violence.

    It seems ironic that the city of Lizzie Borden
    or infamy has such a big problem with crime, me rdet,mayhem and drug deaths.
    Well,Fall River when the industries moved out,
    Poverty and social problems arise and were aggravated.
    The same thing happened to Brockton,MA.
    It would used to be a nice city. But when the vital shoe business and factories left the city
    grew quite poor and crime-,ridden.
    It was terrible. We need a Marshall Plan for America, like we did for Europe circa post WWIl
    to save it from communism.
    well a lot of America needs the same thing now!

        YES IT IS ! New Bedford Is A WAYYYY WORSE CITY Than Fall River. It’s Got More Drug Problem’s, Homeless Problem’s & Higher CRIME than Fall River by Far! New Bedford Has hardly NO Skyline! Has NO ReaL Bridge, Only a Short Causeway it Shouldn’t Even be considered a bridge! It’s Pathetic! It’s a Joke! And The City of New Bedford Has NO Hills!! It’s Mostly FLAT & Boring! The Port of New Bedford Regularly Has Been An Open-Wide Shipping Port for Importing illegal Drug’s Trafficking & Weapons, Not to Mention illegal Stowaway’s migrating & Smuggled In from The Cape Verde Islands. It’s Secretly Been Going On For Year’s!! How Is That Port NOT Being Monitored By The FBI, The U.S. Customs & Federal investigators for Port Authority’s Is Beyond Me.? So, PLEASE! Don’t Talk Bad About Fall River, Until New Bedford Clean’s Up It’s OWN Backyard !

    I lived in Fall River and I have also lived in Quincy grew up in Quincy I have lived in Brockton nothing is worse then down town nasty Brockton there is no way that Fall River is worse then Brockton u want to talk about gross try walking to Dunkin’ Donuts mind u across the street my my old house and Brockton police station to count 56 needles on the ground or to have ur car stole. And recovered 2 weeks later in Randolph full of needles pissed in and god knows what ever else there is absolutely nothing for children to do at least Fall River cares about the kids there schools are better then the Quincy school systems who let the kids just get pushed threw the cracks so I do not understand all that and I never have seen it dirty on the streets maybe the main ones but never the side it’s sad it’s so run down and the mills closed but I believe that city still has great people there to

      Hey Roxanne, it’s Dianna, Carolyn’s sister. I didn’t know you had lived in Fall River? The kids and I have been here for about 6 years now. And although I don’t like it much and would love to move, I don’t find it that bad. We’re in a good neighborhood, and my kids are doing well in school making honor roll and getting awards. I would never want to move to Quincy or Brockton though. When Fred,Carolyn, n Bri lives there I hated taking the bus and doing near the station. It was awful therr. Anyway, hope you and your family are doing well. Take Care.
